I made my own lip colour!

I own a lot of makeup but only ONE solitary lipstick! Don't laugh, but I am a gloss kind of girl and have not owned a lipstick in years. My only one was acquired last november and it is Rimmel's "Spotlight Beige." 

Now this colour swatched beautifully, but on my lips, it looks very pale pink! That doesn't look to good so I have mixed and matched and come up with my own combo colour!

I used:

  • Covergirl Smoothers lipliner in 'Spices' to line my lips. Then I mash my lips together to blend the colour. You can use a finger or a brush to blend.
  • Apply Rimmel's 'Spotlight Beige' lipstick onto your lips to get a pretty pinky-brown colour.
  • Top off with Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in 'Hot Coconut' on top. The gloss pulls all the colours together as it has beautiful gold and rust shimmer in it. Plus it's coconut smelling....mmmm...yummy!
So look at my lippie colour!

The products I used.

Ta-Daaaaaaaaaaaa!

Hope you like! I encourage everyone to mix and match if you don't already do so! It's so much fun!

Thanks!
