Red is obviously a favorite color of mine. Bold red lips are something I love to sport on the average Wednesday morning for no reason at all other than to do something I love. Anytime I see a red lip look I love, I instantly need to find out the color(s) and swatch next time I’m in store. Lucky for me, my latest find was broken down by Becca (go ahead and click, it’s worth it and I’ll wait)…….
Stunning, yes? The skin is perfection, the lips luscious, and the rest of the makeup minimal. Such a fresh take on a seasonally appropriate look. While the products are listed by Becca, I wanted to not only recreate the look, but also share more about each product. Becca is most known for skin products and with good reason, but I am hard-pressed to find anything I don’t like about these three lip choices.
Step 1: Becca Lip Priming Perfector A lip primer that smoothes, defines, fills, and hydrates while extending lip color wear, I have mixed feelings. I love the way it preps my lips, especially for matte lip products. If you wear a lot of matte lip colors, check this one out to protect from drying and to create a flawless canvas. It is supposed to be translucent, but this is where I struggle. I don’t mind it as is, but the nude color requires care during application to make sure it doesn’t peek out around the edge of additional coors.
Step 2: Becca Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Aurora Matte lovers, check these out. Why haven’t I heard of them until now? The bright coral red is a new shade and I enjoy it for cooler months in place of red-oranges. As with any matte, it accentuates dryness, so be sure to exfoliate and hydrate in advance. If your lips aren’t super dry, then no need to worry. Aurora is creamy and comfy for wear.
Step 3: Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in Hotel California To really get the holiday sparkle, top the look off with gloss. Hotel California is rather pigmented for a gloss and slightly deepens the look without losing the uniqueness of Aurora underneath. I can see wearing it alone on low-maintenance days.
I’m in love with red. This look from Becca is wearable year round as a signature look and works especially well for the holiday season.
