Summer Plum

4th November 2012

Happy Saturday Lovers Downunder. The gorgeous Angela Renee our beauty tip expert, has got another awesome beauty tip for us she likes to call it Summer plum! Just when you had found your perfect shade of orange lippy we changed the fashion rules! The newest colour trend for lips to hit the runway is deep plum and wine red shades. How will plum complement my bridal gown you may ask?

Those of you with cooler skin tones will be rejoicing that purple and violet hues are back. These cooler tones are beautiful not only for brunettes but  blonde hair brides too. Like all makeup and hair trends its all in the way its applied to compliment your individual you!   A great way to introduce these shades to your wedding makeup is to keep it sheer:

-Apply a nude lip liner in the perfect match to your natural lip colour.

-I recommend applying your plum lip shade with a lip brush.

-Put a smidge of lipstick on a pallet and press your brush into the lipstick to soften and warm the product.

-Start your application at the middle inside of the lip and gently blend to the outer lip line.

-Press lips together!


This creates a beautiful soft lip stain and has a wonderful vintage effect. You can also go darker with the colour by blotting first with tissue and reapplying. This little trick works well for long lasting colour.

Lovely wearable shades to try are:

Smashbox “Fig”

or MAC ” Viva Glam 6″ and MAC “Date night” Alternatively go for a gloss finish with MAC “Pop Mode” lipglass or Smashbox “24/7” a divine sheer purple pink tone.

Thanks to Angela Renee for another hot beauty tip.
