I am currently OBSESSED by the 90s makeup come back.. I love me some neutral, matte eyes, soft smoky liner and matte nude lips. Today I’m going to talk about my current favourite in that last category, I’ve had it for a while but only recently picked it out and I LOVE IT!! I was a huge fan of MACs Kinda Sexy – see post here – and thought it couldn’t get much better than that but Velvet Teddy is just a touch darker, cooler and much more flattering on my skin tone. This taupier (not a word) shade is a little closer to that 90s trend too.
Here I used Avons nude lip liner however it’s not really a necessary step with a matte formula to prevent bleeding.. it is however quite popular exaggerate your shape with a nude liner. We’ve gone years without liner, it just wasn’t really cool but thanks to Kylie Jenner this plumped up matte nude has made a huge comeback so (without looking insane) you can now feel totally justified in colouring OUTSIDE the lines again.. I may do a follow up on beefed up Jenner-esque lips but this is my current every day favourite and if you’re in to matte nudes I think you might need it!
What’s your current favourite trend?
