SUMMER VIBES; REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPS


Make a statement this season and use bright, poppy colours on the lips. Whether it’s a gloss or a lipstick, make sure there is a shine to increase the look of volume and keep that playful Summer vibe.
My go-to lip colours this season will be Revlon’s Super Luscious Lipsticks & or Gloss. Tip; Keep things clean and fresh on the rest of the face through the day with a little mascara and bronzer on the cheeks. For the evening you can push it a little by define your brow and giving your eye a little flick with a liner across the top lash line.
