I realised the other day, that quite a few people have visited my blog, hoping to find out what brand of lipstick Paige Thomas from the USA X Factor has been wearing. My apologies people! I wrote a whole post about her, and failed to mention how / where her lipstick came about.
From my experience, you cant get a branded lipstick that has the depth, and coverage of glitter that Paige has on her lips.. but don’t worry, because I have the answer – and it won’t make you wallet weep!
In case we all need a little reminder, below is a picture of the lovely lady, with a rather special glittery red outfit, to match those infamous lips.
So first off, you need…
Red lipstick (I used MAC – LADYBUG)
Red lipliner ( I used MAC – CHERRY LIP PENCIL)
Clear Lipgloss ( I used Lancome, juicy wear topcoat)
Red Glitter ( from any art shop) Don’t worry about buying an expensive make-up brand – just go all arts and crafts!
Step one: Line you lips with the lip pencil
Step two: fill in your lips with the lip pencil
Step three: carefully apply your favourite red lipstick with a lip brush. ( this picture and the one above look pretty much the same – but it’s all about building up colour so that it lasts!)
Step five: decant some glitter – I just poured some on to a tissue. Take a clean flat brush ( not a lip brush as this will be too small) dab in to the glitter and pat on to your lips, repeat until the lips are completely coated in glitter.
Here are a few pics of the finished look for you! I took loads of pictures to try and do this justice – but none of the pictures actually show, just how glittery and pretty this look is. Have a go, it’s so simple, and very effective!
Hope that helps!
