An Everyday Lip Combination

| An Everyday Lip Combination! |

My everyday makeup routine follows a similar pattern; Soft natural eyeshadow, luminous highlighted skin, a light foundation with my freckles peeping through and finally, a nude lip. I've tried lots of different lipstick formulas and various different shades but recently, I've found a new lip combination that's perfect for my everyday makeup look.

Most days lining my lips is an essential step in my routine, as I have relatively small lips and I think lipstick just looks a lot nicer on me when paired with a liner. My current favourite is Mac Dervish, a brownish nude shade, a 'my lips but better' kind of shade. I love the formula of Mac lip liners but one thing I've noticed with this particular shade is that it's not as smooth and creamy as some of the other shades. Nonetheless, it's a great shade, that's easy to wear and I find it lasts for a good five-six hours.  

Secondly, I apply one of my all-time favourite nude lipsticks: Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Sex Machine, a pink-toned mauve nude.This shade was my first Nars lipstick so it'll always be a sentimental product in my collection. The velvet matte lip pencils are my favourite matte formula as they're non-drying.

And lastly, I apply my Luna by Lisa lip gloss in Sapphire on top for a glossy finish that gives my lips a juicy, luscious look. This particular shade is just a classic pinky nude hue that complements most nude lipsticks and the formula is incredible - Non-sticky and very pigmented! 

Pairing these together gives an end result of plump, luscious looking lips and the combination is long-lasting. I find that the lip gloss fades after about 2 hours, especially if I've been eating or drinking. However, the lipstick and lip liner still looks perfect even after the lip gloss has completely worn down, and I usually get another three to four hours wear, depending on how often I'm eating/drinking each day.
