what lipstick should I wear?


life in blush's lipstick guide

I don’t know how many times I used to stand in front of my bathroom mirror willing it to impart its wisdom on which colour, from my obscenely large pile of lipsticks glosses, I should wear.

I would inevitably realize how late I was running and just grab the closest one to me in panic before I raced out the door. Several years (and many tubes of colour) later I now have what I like to refer to as my ‘fancy pants girl’s guide to lipstick’

brunch sunday’s are your lazy day so take the guess work out of what to pair with your jeans and cashmere sweater and say hello to this pretty pink shade that can be used on your eyes, lips and cheeks (I know it looks a little more like copper in the picture above, but click here for a ‘truer’ colour swatch)

first date a sexy mix of berry and burgundy shades will make you ‘the girl’ everyone takes note of in envy as you walk across the room

meeting the parents let the warming botanicals in this unique balm bring a natural, rosy flush to your lips so his parents can focus on your wicked awesome personality

girls night out magenta in its classic form, this is my favourite shade to wear when those dancing shoes come out!

power meeting swipe on a sophisticated shade of plum and then go nail that presentation

holidays chances are if you’re on holiday you’re going to be tanned, and nothing goes better with a sun-kissed face than a happy coral tone

interview save the bright, bold colours for after you get the job and instead opt to dress your lip up in a soft nude shade

  • Your Brunch suggestion must be a popular choice – nearly all of the colors are SOLD OUT on the website!!! Looking for a product that does double duty: lip and cheek, any other suggestions?

  • woah, I’ve never heard of Living Libations …the color looks awesome. Do you like it? Have you tried their other products?

  • Margie

    This is an amazing list of what color to wear to every imaginable occasion. I’m assuming those days of one, at the most two, colors of lipstick in your makeup bag are long gone!!
