TOP 5 LIP & CHEEK TINTS


SAMI_TOP5LIP&CHEEKSTAINS_MAXMADE

Back to school makeup tips – Hold onto that Summer holiday feeling and look with this Top 5 Lip & Cheek Stains!

There’s something really vibrant and youthful about a flushed cheek and just-bitten lips. Tints -or sometimes referred to as a stain- penetrate the skins surface giving you a hue of colour that instantly energises and brightens the complexion from within.

What separates these little bad boys from the rest is that they are long lasting, multi-purpose and most importantly, give you a makeup-free, makeup-look.

Oh and if you’re not completely sold already… they come in pretty much every sort of colour & finish AND suit all skin types. That’s all!

Becca Beach Tints Shimmer Souffle

Like the original Becca Beach Tints only this time with an added luminous shimmer in a creamy formula to give a more even flawless, water resistant finish – could this story get any better? Applied best to your cheeks with your fingers in a dabbing motion or a eyeshadow brush to the lips for a sheer see through colour that lights up the skin like no other. Tip; Applied high on the cheekbones just under the outer corner of the eye to highlight the cheeks and brighten tired looking eyes. They’re a deserted island must-have 9/10.

Ellis Faas Creamy Lips

This is for the girl who likes the finer things in life. Packaged in a neat pen-like applicator with a sponge head, this stain is easy to apply and travels like a dream. Ranging from a peachy-nude through to a plum-like-red, there is no denying this is one of my favourite stains as far as colours, longevity and texture go. Tip; Apply in a dabbing motion for more of a see through looking colour or layer for a richer looking colour. I give this stain a 8.5/10

RMS Beauty Lip2cheek

An organic, hydrating mineral- cream colour that applies effortlessly to the cheek and lips. Use a flat brush to build lip colour or use your fingers for a more lashed-like finish. The same goes for your cheeks when using your fingers except this time try using your Beauty Blender when wanting a more chic, bolder colour on the cheeks. Colour is creamy in texture but extremely rich in pigment so be warned. My favourite colours are Curious, Demure & beloved. It’s a 7/10 all the way here!

Revlon ColorBurt Crayons

With every colour in the rainbow to choose from and 3 different finishes – Matte, Balm & Lacquer- to meet every occasion, Revlon’s ColorBurst are one of my favourite stains on the market! Primarily designed for the lips the matte & Stain variety work a treat on the cheeks too! Perfect for dry or finer lips as the shea butter adds volume and a protective barrier. Tip; The richer more plumy stains are perfect for the evening when you want to add a subtle drama, whilst the more pink, peachy & nudes colours are for enhancing your Summer tan. Don’t be shy to apply a little to the eyelid for a glossy stained eye! It’s a 7/10 for these little bad-boys! 7/10

Benefit Cosmetics Cha Cha Tint

Get your cha cha on and tint your lips and cheeks a fresh, tropical, coral hue. Coral is one of those colours that suits all skin tones from the super olive through to the ‘fairest of them all’. For the perfect peachy-pout apply the tint directly to DRY lips using the brush attached to the inside of the lid. To blend and soften the edges – making lips look bigger – use your fingers to dab the colour in. Tip; For those of us that are prone to dark circles, apply high on the apples of the cheeks to brighten and lift the under eye area. I give this stain a  9/10
