The Lip And Cheek Combos You Need To Try

Finding the perfect match between two or more of your make-up products is the winning recipe for a show-stopping look. Seriously. But, with so many products on the Edgars site to choose from, where does one even start?

The solution is simple – whittle it down to your favourite colours and finishes. Perhaps in summer you’re drawn to nudes and bronze tones with a touch of shimmer. In the colder months, matte finishes might be your thing. Or bold brights. There are no rules, really. Just do what makes you happy. You’ll know if the product is the right fit from the moment you put it on your face. Without further ado, here are our carefully curated product pairs below – let us know which one you’d be keen to try.

Lip And Cheek Make-Up Combos


We love this duo purely because we’re still in latte make-up mode and it’s the most summery pick of them all. Bronze hues are nude shades with a hint (or more) of shimmer and give instant radiance to your complexion from first application. MAC’s Lip Glass in shade Spice will complement the golden flecks of Revlon’s exotic Skinlights Bronzer beautifully. A little goes a long way with each product – all you need is a swipe on the lips and cheeks and you’re good to glow. Remember to prep your skin beforehand with moisturiser to avoid ashy patches with the bronzer.

This daring combo is for those wanting to make a statement. And for good reason! Dior’s liquid lippy delivers a pungent red that’ll last the entire day and if you happen to need a touch-up, the pointed applicator means you won’t even need a mirror to freshen up your look. Don’t be intimidated by the liquid formula of the Benefit Lovetint & Cheek Stain – it dries into a soft pink hue, which mimics your natural flush. The formula is buildable to achieve a deeper hue.

If you’re looking for a bit of shimmer, sparkle or glitter, then we know you’ll love this magic lip and cheek combo. The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer has a high-shine formula and becomes glossier with each coat. Combine this with Dior’s Luminizer Highlighter on your cheekbones to the tip of your nose to get the ultimate sun-kissed shimmer look. The main aim here is to be glisteningly gorgeous. And we’re here for it.

Oily skin gals – this one’s for you. Matte blush formulas tend to make complexions quite flat with no dimension. That’s why we paired a matte bronzer instead – there’s an ever-so-slight metallic finish to add a bit of depth to your contouring. Complete your look with a rose matte lippy, which has a pinkier tinge than a regular nude. Although matte, this combo is known to refresh and uplift the complexion, providing an overall radiance.

Our nude selection of products has one very important factor in common. Both are hydrating, creamy products that nourish the skin. Consider this combo if you have a dry skin type because, believe it or not, make-up can effectively hydrate the skin like skincare products would. Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge is a dual product that you can use on your cheeks and lips – we also love using it on our eyes as a gentle cream eyeshadow. Try it on your lips as a primer before applying your nude lipstick to make the colour pop.
