Makeup Pick-me-ups

Do you ever feel like you’d rather stay home than go out?

Makeup can be that little pick-me-up to get me out of the door on those days. Especially those times when you don’t want to but you really have to. Like cold Monday mornings…

My favourite makeup item for those moments is a bright lipstick. I love bright reds and corals and lately my go-to shades that are always in my handbag are MAC Crosswires Creamsheen lipstick and Maybelline Color Sensational in Coral Crush.

The best thing about a bright lip is that you don’t need to do much else with your makeup. A touch of concealer, a light sweep of blush and mascara and you can run out the door in a flash. Especially useful for those times when you sleep in..!

A bright lip is definitely my favourite makeup pick-me-up. What’s your favourite bright lipstick or what’s your top makeup item to give you a lift?

    Love those bright lips on the model. My favourite pick me up is NARS Heat Wave, a matte punchy orange-red. It really does put me in a good mood when I have it on :)

    YAAAY! I love bright lips on other people!! You need to put a pic up of you wearing your bright lip! <3
    It'd be no surprise, but my makeup pick-me-up is Chanel lipstick! Now I think I'll have to get a bright one!

    I love deep reds and purples. But my favorite is my MAC gel, it's a lovely shade of gold; it's the perfect accent for my bright eyeliners or eye shadows
