How To Wear A Daytime Friendly Bold Lip

Some occasions call for a bright lip and there’s no better time than the summer to do just that. Bright, bold lips are the perfect match for this beautiful weather, however it’s not always easy to pull off. I’ve been experimenting and have found my fool proof way of rocking a bold lip in the daytime…

Apply you lip colour before anything else to help tie in the rest of your makeup. You can never really tell just how much eyeshadow or blush you need to apply until you’ve seen the lips in action. This way you’ll avoid overdoing things!

Contour but only slightly to keep things natural.Β As bright lips can detract from the features of your face, it’s important to add some definition. Try to stay on the subtle side of things though, you want this to be as daytime friendly as possible.

Avoid too much blusher! You don’t want to contrast with your lips so try to find a shade that matches the lip colour. Untimely you don’t want to apply too much blush. A very small amount will be enough to brighten the face without looking like a porcelain doll! And if you really crave that cheek colour, use a small amount of bronzer onto the apples of the cheek instead. This will brighten everything without looking too full on!

Try to keep the eye make up simple by avoiding dark colours. A small amount of blended eyeliner or a matte brown through the crease will work wonders. And if you like a little shimmer just add something gold toned very lightly as a wash over your eyelid. MAC All That Glitters is perfect for this!

Lastly try to keep the skin glowing as this just helps to keep things ultra modern. By adding highlighter, or using a dewy foundation, your skin will look fresh and bright.

Now lets hope this prepares you for a bright, summery lip!



  1. That first tip is priceless! All the times I’ve started out thinking of doing a bolder lip then went with a nude one just to match the rest of my face – and I still hadn’t considered doing that πŸ˜‰
