Is there any lip colour more appropriate for summer than peach? One of my favourite hues to wear when I’m sporting a summer tan, a peach lip always has a way of making me excited for summer! Inspired by the recent sunny spells, we’ve teamed up with MAKE UP FOR EVER to bring you a peach lip look that you’ll never want to take off.
Quick and easy, this peach look takes minutes but last hours – and it even involves getting a little creative! Read on to find out how we created this pretty peach look…
MAKE UP FOR EVER challenged us to create a coral look that’s wearable and eye-catching. On the left is the inspiration, and right is our finished look – did we pass? If you’re keen to find out how we achieved this, then I won’t ramble any further, here are the steps you need to follow…
Step 1: Define
The first step in achieving this peach lip look is lining the lips. Lining the lips will not only improve the longevity of your lip colour but will also give a more professional result. For this look, use the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner in 18C – Coral to trace the lip line and fill in the lips. A vibrant coral pink, the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner in 18C – Coral will create the perfect base for the Artist Acrylip.
Step 2: Mix
Now it’s time to unleash your creativity! Mix the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Acrylip Lip Paint 300 Orange and MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Acrylip Lip Paint 200 Candy Pink to create a vibrant, warm coral pink. Mixing the two shades together will allow you to make your own custom colour, so if you like a darker coral, use more orange and vice versa if you prefer your corals lighter, use more pink!
Step 3: Colour
Once you’re happy with the colour it’s time to pop it on. Use the MAKE UP FOR EVER Lip Brush – 304 to evenly apply the lip colour, remembering to stay within the lip line. Using a brush will allow you to achieve a more precise application, no one wants a wonky lip line do they?
Step 4: Highlight
To finish, make a feature of your look by highlighting the cupid’s bow with the MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder in 13 Ivory. A light-medium gold, this show-stopping shade will accentuate the cupid’s bow, making lips appear fuller and plumper. Could there be any better way to complete this peach look?
