Orchid Berry Lips

Autumn is in full swing and out come the berry lipsticks! In all their different tones and intensities. One of my favourites is an orchid berry colour. A purply pinky lavender mix. While I love the more vampy berry’s, this is a more wearable shade that suits many skin tones.

 And while some mixing is required, two products are all that’s needed.

 

 To start I used a Laura Mercier lip liner in “crushed berry” as a lip stain, painting the entire lip with it. I soften any harsh lines so that the colour is diffused across the lip.

To place and add texture, I used my fingers to add YSL’s Kiss and Blush in “Rose Epicurian” . I started in the centre of the lips and worked my way out with just what was left on my finger. I then applied a second layer, again using my finger, this time only to the centre of the lips to get a subtle two-toned effect.

To clean up and ‘line’ the lip in the most natural way – use a little concealer and apply it with a brush around the lips focusing mainly on the corner of the lips. I use this method regularly when I want to add definition to the lips without using lip liner (and not just when darker lipstick is worn).

To do this I used BECCA’s ultimate covering crème (one of the creamiest concealers out there that doesn’t settle into fine lines) and a Trish McEvoy concealer brush.
