Some call it Oxblood (sounds scary!) and others say wine-stained, but really no matter how we label it the IT lip colour this fall is all about taking the red lip to a deeper, richer level. The best part about this deep purple/red shade is that all you need is lipstick! It makes such a statement that the rest of your face can remain simple, clean and fresh. AND, it makes going from day to night a breeze! P10 loves NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga and Cargo Cosmetics Essential Lip Color in Napa.
How to get the look:
1. Prime the lips to get them even and soft using a toothbrush and warm water to exfoliate. Follow with a moisturising lip treatment to keep the lips flake-free. (this step is of course optional depending on if you are applying at home or on-the-go!)
2. Line the lips with a pencil that matches your natural lip colour to help keep the lip colour from feathering and bleeding onto your skin.
3. Use a lip brush or simply dab the lip colour on the centre of the bottom lip and purse lips together. Fill the rest of the lip in with a lip brush or use your finger to give them the stained look. Reapply to get an even darker effect. To match your new autumn lip use Essie's Wicked on the nails which looks good on ALL skin colours! And in case you missed it P10 is offering a complimentary manicure when you book a facial or massage through November 14th! Pamper away...
