With the holidays around the corner, this is a super easy statement lip that can have you party ready in just a couple of minutes. For this look I used a bright pink and a light pink lipstick but I also love the same thing with a darker burgundy for a richer evening look. I picked up everything at for this post at CVS and was excited to try out some new Milani products (my bathroom counter needs a serious cleaning at this point :).
1. I started with some basic makeup (foundation + a tiny bit of blush/bronzer/highlighter) and moisturized my lips. I applied this natural lip scrub before using chapstick to remove all dry skin.
2. Cover your entire lip with the darker lipstick. I used Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Blushing Beauty. Be sure to line the edges of your lip (or use a coordinating or slightly darker lipliner).
3. Use the lighter lip color on the middle of your lips, as shown.
4. Use a light colored powder/eyeshadow (like this one in ivory I used) to further accentuate the lighter color on the middle of your lips. The shadow also helps set the lipstick and have the color last all evening.
^^I finished off the look with some other Milani products including their Fierce Foil Eyeliner, Kohl Kajal, Eye Primer, Stay Put Brow, Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eye Shadow, and a bit of mascara. I kept it pretty basic because the lips are such a statement but my favorite is definitely the Stay Put Brow. Until now I’ve just been using a bit of eye shadow or a brown eye liner to fill in my brows and its amazing the difference the correct product makes!
