We at BeBeautiful are obsessed with lipsticks and are constantly experimenting different makeup looks. If you too are like us you know it is so much fun to combine, mix and play around with not just different shades of lipstick but also with different lip products and create a personalised lip look.
We put several lipsticks to test and the following combos won us over. Read on to find out some of our favourite lip product pairings...
- Lip balm + Lipstick = Ombré lips
- Matte lipstick + Sheer lip gloss = Long lasting lip colour
- Orange lipstick + Nude lipstick = Summery peach colour
- Cream lipstick + Lip liner = No feathering
Lip balm + Lipstick = Ombré lips
Mastering the art of getting that perfect Ombré lips requires practice. While we were at it we figured this simple hack using Lakmé Lip Love Cherry shade as the base and blending in some Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color - Soft Mauve around the edges to create this effortless gradient look.
Matte lipstick + Sheer lip gloss = Long lasting lip colour
Do you love the pigments of your matte lipstick but also the shine of your lip gloss? Here’s how we figured out a way to combine the two. Apply Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in your favourite shade and let it dry. Now layer it with Lakmé Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Rose Shine, an almost sheer formula that will enhance the colour of your lipstick and give you glossy lips.
Orange lipstick + Nude lipstick = Summery peach colour
You can put your search for the perfect peach lipstick to an end. We glide the peppy Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - Saffron Gossip all over our lips and let it settle. Then dab some Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - Blushing Nude over it to get that perfect peach colour you’ve been looking for!
Cream lipstick + Lip liner = No feathering
Love wearing cream lipstick but always end up with feathered lip colour? The trick is to line the edges of your lips with a matte lip liner, we love Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Lip Definer – Salmon to define the outline. Then fill it with Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Pout Definer - Blushing Temptress to get a beautiful, long lasting lip colour.
