Talonted Lips And Tips: Week Two

In an attempt to make me fall love with Instagram again, I’ve been doing a daily picture challenge: for every day in November I’m matching my lipstick and nails. Here is my summary of week two of Talonted Lips And Tips.

Talonted Lips And Tips: Week Two

You can see all of the looks I did in the first week of Talonted Lips And Tips HERE, and don’t forget to let me know which is your favourite this week in the comments below. You can follow me on instagram HERE to keep up with the rest of the challenge!

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: matte grey

DAY 8: BLUE GREY

I have a thing for grey lipsticks, I am just drawn to them. They’re usually very divisive when I put them in UnwearableLex, which I understand, but I just think they look amazing. This is a beautiful blue-toned grey that I managed to match perfectly *dusts shoulders*.

PRODUCTS USED: The Ordinary Serum Foundation*, GOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, LA Girl Matte Flat Velvet lipstick ‘Poetic’, Kiko nail varnish ‘380 Medium Grey’, Seche Vite top coat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: galaxy

DAY 9: GALAXY

I have been doing Galaxy nail art for years but had never tried it on the lips… and I love it! It took three goes to get right (it turns out blending with lipstick is pretty hard) but this is my second most popular look of the series so far!

PRODUCTS USED: The Ordinary Serum Foundation*, GOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer ‘Potency’, LA Splash Smitten Liptint Mousse ‘Deadly Nightshade’, LA Splash Lip Couture ‘Vindictive’, acrylic paint, Essie ‘Licorice’, ‘After School Boy Blazer’, ‘Private Weekend’*, Models Own ‘Hayley’s Comet’ and ‘Lemon Meringue’, Seche Vite top coat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: floral

DAY 10: FLORAL BOUQUET

I think this might be one of my favourite looks so far. I applied the products onto the lips and nails using a dotting tool (but you could use an unbent hair pin if you want a DIY option!)

PRODUCTS USED: The Ordinary Serum Foundation*, GOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, Freedom lipstick ‘Storm Trooper’*, Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick ‘Bauhau5’, LA Splash Lip Couture ‘Rose Garden’, acrylic paint, Essie ‘Private Weekend’*, ‘On The Roadie’*, ‘We’re In It Together’, ‘Model Citizen’*, Seche Vite top coat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: pop art nail art and lip art

DAY 11: POP ART

This look was SO much fun to do and it had such a great reaction – it’s the most popular Talonted Lips and Tips post so far. If you have a steady hand, I really recommended giving this look a go – it’s much easier than it looks!

PRODUCTS USED: The Ordinary Serum Foundation*, GOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer ‘Reckless’, DHC liquid eyeliner ‘Black’, acrylic paint, Kiko nail varnish ’64 Deep Red’, Essie ‘Licorice’ and ‘Private Weekend’*Cheeky ‘Matt Demon’ topcoat*.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: pink holographic foil

DAY 12: PINK HOLOGRAPHIC

I think I prefer the nail foil on the lips than on the nails…! Who doesn’t love a bit of holographic prettiness?

PRODUCTS USED: The Ordinary Serum Foundation*, GOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, Stila liquid lipstick ‘Fiore’, Sparkly Nails nail foil, Pixi Beauty LipLift Max ‘Petal Ice’*, Essie ‘Status Symbol’*, Sparkly Nails nail foil, Seche Vite top coat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: NOPE

DAY 13: NOPE

After a bad day, I only had one design in mind…

PRODUCTS USED: L’Oréal Paris True Match foundationToo Faced Ethereal Setting Powder*, MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer ‘Potency’, Essie ‘Licorice’Cheeky ‘Matt Demon’ topcoat*, acrylic paint.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: rose gold lips and nails

DAY 14: ROSE GOLD

Yes I’m an enormous blogger millennial cliché and I love rose gold. I can’t help it! I’m not usually a big fan of glossy lips but this is actually really pretty.

PRODUCTS USED: L’Oréal Paris True Match foundationGOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, Models Own Lip Gunk ‘Titanium’*, Essie ‘To Have And To Gold’*.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: tiger lip art and nail art

DAY 15: TIGER PRINT

After the fun of the leopard print look that I did last week, I wanted to try another animal print look. It was fairly quick to do but I really found it hard to know when to stop with the stripes… I’m such a fiddler!

PRODUCTS USED: L’Oréal Paris True Match foundationGOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte ‘Mercury Rising’, Bare Minerals BareSkin concealer*, Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner ‘Black’*, Essie ‘Fear or Desire’, ‘Private Weekend’* and Essie ‘Licorice’Cheeky ‘Matt Demon’ topcoat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: Purple matte and gloss

DAY 16: MATTE VS GLOSS

As soon as I started the Talonted Lips And Tips challenge I knew that I wanted to do a look that contrasted matte and gloss finishes. I just think it looks so modern and cool. Are you more of a matte or gloss person?

PRODUCTS USED: L’Oréal Paris True Match foundationGOSH Priming and Setting Powder*, NYX Liquid Suede ‘Amethyst’, L’Oréal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss ‘Clear’, OPI ‘Lost My Bikini In Molokini’, Cheeky ‘Matt Demon’ topcoat, Seche Vite top coat.

Talonted Lips And Tips challenge: red and gold

DAY 17: RED AND GOLD

There’s something about red and gold together that I love. It’s 50% chic and 50% trashy, and what could be better than that?

PRODUCTS USED: L’Oréal Paris True Match foundation, Vichy Dermablend Setting powder*, Kiko Asian Touch Matte Liquid Lipstick ’01 Plushy Red’*, Superdrug Studio London glitter eyeliner ‘Gold’*, Lottie London ‘Bedazzled’, Essie ‘Glow Your Own Way’*, Seche Vite top coat.

I can’t believe we’re already halfway through Talonted Lips And Tips, which are your favourite looks so far?
