An Amazing Lipstick Combination You Never Thought Would Work But Does! Try Purple Lined Lips With Red Lipstick


Hi gorgeous girls!

With summer here, it’s a great time to start experimenting with gorgeous pops of colour in our makeup once again.

A great way to ease back into bright and beautiful makeup this season is with this gorgeous lip look I saw featured on the stunning @itsgenesys Instagram page (her makeup looks are to die for!).

Basically she has lined her lips with a pigmented plum purple shade and then filled in the remaining sections of her lips with a striking cherry red before carefully marrying the two colours seamlessly.

The result is ultra flattering – I guess most of us would assume purple and red would not look that nice on our lips, but she’s set the record straight.

This is such a fun lip look and perfect for any upcoming Christmas parties. Watch the video below and shop all the products you need to recreate this at home via my shop links.
