I used to seriously take lipstick for granted. To be fair, when I was younger, I owned like two shades of lipstick and they certainly didn’t go with every eye look I wore on a day to day basis, so many days I’d just skip it altogether. *GASP* I know.
Of course as I got older, I discovered the very addicting sea of available shades, formulas and finishes that would soon become the biggest section of my makeup collection. Now that it has grown to take up three full drawers, I understand the power of lipstick and how the right shade can completely transform a look.
I decided to put that theory to the test by creating a glam bronze eyeshadow look, and pairing it with five different lipstick shades to see how it switches up the whole appearance.
For these looks, I used the Moisturizing Lipsticks from RealHer Cosmetics. You might have spotted some their lipsticks on my Instagram, since I’ve been wearing them frequently. Aside from the extremely creamy and pigmented formula, the shades all have empowering phrases as the names that are nice to keep around and remind yourself. On top of that, the brand donates 20% of their proceeds to the American Association of University Women to support programs that empower girls and women. I love their message and what they stand for, plus the lipsticks are only $12.99 and have a seriously high-quality feel.
Check out the video above for the glam bronze eyeshadow tutorial, and see how the lipsticks pair with it.
