Dear Roses and Lilies,
If leaving your lips look natural is not for you, there's always a confidence booster nearby. All you need to remember is to keep it simple and wearable with just a pop of color.
For my second casual day look, I took off most of the moisturizing gloss. Not all of it, because lips need moisture even under other lip products.
The rest of the makeup stays the same: foundation - depending on your preferences - concealer where and if needed, a touch of powder, a neutral eyeshadow, liner, volumizing mascara and eyebrow products. The pale pink blusher looks good with many lip colors, as long as they are not too warm toned.
Back to lips: I went glossy because it is the easiest thing to do. If, however, you don't like sticky glosses, you can always try one of those fusion lipsticks - a stain, a gloss and a lipstick in one single product.
Like the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stains or the Rebel Nudes.
I used no. 103 Pink Taboo, which is a wearable pink. The first layer is pretty sheer, but by the time you finish applying the second layer, the color coverage is opaque.
This is non-sticky and the texture is watery in the tube but turns to gel on your lips. Once it sets, there is very little color transfer and, since this product is also designed to function as a stain, the color will last longer ( vs. your average glossy product ). I love this shade because it stays glossy all day and it's comfy on my lips.
The price on YSL makeup in general is pretty steep, but there are many dupes out there already, for a lower price. Fell free to adapt this look to your own budget and skin tone.
The end result is a fresh, casual face, with a hint of color to brighten your mood.
Hope you like it!
