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.
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!
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*.
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.
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.
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*.
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.
After a bad day, I only had one design in mind…
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.
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 foundation, GOSH 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.
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 foundation, GOSH 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.
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?
