These Are The Lip Combos You Need To Try

Did you know that you can mix and match your lip products to create your own signature look? By combining lip liners, cream or matte lipsticks, liquid lipsticks and lipglosses, the world is truly your oyster when it comes to how you make up your pout. We suggest experimenting with your products to find the blend that works best for you. If you’re unsure where to begin, we’ve highlighted our favourite lip combos below to give you a nudge in the right direction, plus the product to use to prep your lips for optimal results. 

DIY Lip Prep

Just like your skin before make-up, your lips need to be prepped before applying any lip product. Keep them hydrated with a nourishing lip mask, like this one from Laneige. It has moisture-wrap technology that helps lock in moisture and vitamin C to soften and exfoliate the skin while you sleep. Good morning, soft and supple lips.

Classic nude

What better way to kick off our favourite lip combos than with a nude combo that’s ideal for everyday wear? Liquid lipsticks deliver bold pigment coupled with either a high-shine or opaque matte finish. This one from Revlon magically mimics your natural lip colour while giving it an ultra-glossy finish. Use the lip liner to give your lips precision, or better yet, as a primer to hold your liquid lipstick.

Siren red

Red lips are the best way to make a statement. Choose a lip liner to outline the lips to ensure equal application. Next, apply a creamy, nourishing red lipstick to the lips. This will act as a primer or base for the liquid lipstick. For the last step, apply the matte liquid lippy (the wand applicator makes this process super easy). Matte formulas have more longevity than glossy finishes, making this an ideal lip for a night out.

Burgundy pout 

If you’re a fan of the iconic winter berry lip, you’ll love this combo. If you prefer something more subtle, stick to the lipliner and lip colour only. Adding a slick or two of the liquid lipstick will give your look more of an edge. It’s a great way to transform your make-up from day to night. Pair your pout with brown, golden-bronze tones on the eyes and you’re good to go.

90s Brown

Brown lipstick is having a comeback and we’re not mad about it. If you’re not feeling red, and nude isn’t your thing, consider this a perfect go-between. Seeing as though browns fall into the earth-tone category, they have the ability to suit all skin tones and add warmth to the complexion. Fill in your lips with the lip liner and then apply the creamy lipstick directly from the bullet. Dab your finger on the lipstick to test the intensity of the colour and build as you wish.
