Tried and tested: Illamasqua’s new Glamore Nudes range…
Illamasqua is a brand that knows how to do pigments like pros, so you can only imagine how fantastic the color spec in the new Nude Glamore Lipsticks range is. There are 7 delightful colours and you lucky ladies get one in your Glamour Boxes. So as many of you may be thinking…’What if I get a shade that’s not me!?’ here are a few tips on how to make the most of your lipstick.
If you feel the colour you receive may be too pale for you don’t stick it to the back of your makeup drawer, mix it with a lipgloss that is brighter and use it as a base. As I have a tan at the moment the one colour I found too pale was Tease. However, there’s ways of working around that! Used with a brighter gloss (matted down with a touch of powder) or mixed with another lipstick, you can still benefit from the awesome texture of the lipstick. Adding a touch of red lippy to Tease would make for the perfect pink pout.
Minx or Cherub may be too bright as a nude on some skin types. The best way to amend and still use this is to fill your lips in with a nude liner of your choice and then pat some of the lipstick on over your lined lips. Doing this will add another dimension to your lip, whilst pushing yourself out of your comfort zone by using a colour you may never of thought you could pull off! Or you can always use it as a blusher!
I have recently fallen in love with brown lipsticks and glosses, which is why I would say Buff is one of my favourite lipsticks. Some of you may be slightly nervous by the depth of the brown, but tone it up or down using a lipgloss in peach. Believe it or not it also makes a great contour colour! Shhh!
Once you try your colour out and love it, I suggest you go out and buy the rest as there are 7 they make the perfect start to a summer day!
P.S. When applying lipstick I always suggest you prime (MAC prep and prime lip is awesome) and line, this way you don’t have to keep checking your lips you know they will last. The texture of the Illamasqua Glamore lipsticks help too as they are velvet finish so happy medium between matte and shiny.
I hope you guys love them as much as I do!
