With the cooler Winter days upon us it's the perfect time to change-up that makeup to reflect the seasonal shades. A timeless makeup trend is berry or burgundy lips which suits all skin tones and is super easy to achieve with your perfect lipstick match.
Since most women apply lipstick an average of five times a day, and lips are licked and lipstick is absorbed, be careful what you use. Luckily for you we have some real natural beauties at BB including Bite Beauty; a highly pigmented natural lipstick range from Canada that fuses alluring colour with the age-defying benefits of powerful antioxidants. Derived from natural and food grade ingredients, Bite Beauty has been created with the idea our daily lipstick application should enhance our natural beauty. The first ever lipstick line to contain Red Wine Resveratrol, each lippie is bursting with the powerful antioxidant to help keep lips protected.
This look is all about the lips and having them as the focus means eye makeup can be left natural making it quick to achieve. Alongside the lippie, just a good foundation and sweep of mascara is all you really need. Opt for a luminous finish foundation and mascara with a glossy finish. Also make sure brows are perfectly groomed as full-volume brows still have the wow (and anti-ageing!) factor. For an extra radiance boost you could add a highlighter to your skin. See our article on how to achieve Luminous Skin Naturally.
