My Perfect Lip Combination

I have been trying to find the perfect lip combo for years now. I don’t know why but I just haven’t been able to find the perfect one for my skin tone. Everything that I have tried has either been too pink in too colour or too mauve. And, when a colour is too mauve it tends to wash my face out a bit.

Then I found Charlotte Tilbury lip products. I committed myself to buying one of her lipsticks every month. I got to about the 4th month until I found the perfect shade for me. From there I have basically used this lip combination every single day for about a month now and I still love it and get loads of compliments on it.

To start with I line and slightly over line my lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in the shade Pillow Talk. I love this lip liner because it really helps to plump up the lips and help define the shape of the lips. I have found Pillow Talk to be such a universal shade. I didn’t think it would work for me to start with because I have seen so many fair people using it, but it works perfectly with my olive skin tone.

Then when I have the Lip Cheat in place I will go in with my favourite lipstick with is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in the shade Very Victoria. When I first looked at swatches for this lipstick I thought it might be too dark to wear as an everyday shade, but on me this is just a perfect neutral shade.

These two products just work together like a match made in heaven. They both complement each other really well and have absolutely incredible staying power. I can put this on at 7am in the morning and go off to work, then when I am back at 5pm, I can look in the mirror and it still looks really nice.

And even though the staying power is really good it doesn’t mean that it is drying in anyway. When you first put the lipstick on it feels nice and hydrating and it pretty much stays that way all day, and that is coming from somebody who usually suffers with quite naturally dry lips.

I have just really been enjoying using this lip combo recently and everybody asks what lipstick I am wearing so I thought that I may as well let you know. As normal with all of my blog posts I will leave links down below in case you want to check the products out. Make sure you leave me a comment down below and let me know what lip combinations you have been loving recently!
