I often wear a bold lip color for my look posts on the blog and I felt like it was time to share some of my favorite shades and a few tips! Also pictured above are a few of the items I use on a daily basis such as the Too Faced Beauty Balm (Tinted Moisturizer) and my Benefit Cosmetic High Brow Glow which is amazing for highlighting your brow bone. I love MAC cosmetics lipsticks, and I prefer a matte finish because I find the colour really pops and it is different than the traditional glossy look.
An awesome thing to do before wearing lipstick is to exfoliate your lips. You can buy lip exfoliators but you can also make your own at home by mixing a small amount of honey and granulated sugar together, then massaging it in a circular motion on your lips using your finger. I also always apply a MAC lip primer before applying my lipsticks as it prepares my lips and helps enhance the color.
Here are my current favorite shades of MAC lipstick:
