Hi Everyone, 🙂
When you have gazillion beautiful lipsticks to choose from from your collection, it is hard to take just 4 lipsticks with you on a half-a-month trip. But this time I just decided to take a dip and see if I could survive with just 4 lipsticks for so many days. Well, with teeny bit of a cheating (I used my new lipstick for a day in Paris. :P) I really survived on just these 4 shades. And it felt awesome. I am sharing a few tricks with you. Hope some of you find them helpful. 🙂
So I decided to take 4 basic shades – a bight pink, a red, a bright orange and a neutral lips colors with me. Then I decided to mix and match .
So basically I had these 4 lipsticks + 5 more lipsticks shades with a little tweak here and there. 🙂
Hot pink + Neural lip color – I mixed the two for days when I wanted a soft pink or my MLBB shade. I had to use a bit of lip balm to get a good finish with this combination because Tarte lipstick is super matte and it was a little hard to mix. Lip balm did the trick. But if you are carrying creamy lipsticks with you, mixing should not be a problem. Just apply one lipstick on top of the other and wipe the top of lipsticks with a tissue.
Hot Pink + Orange : For a shocking coral shade such as MAC impassioned, I mixed these two and the result was a fab deep coral color.
If you are a gloss person, you just have to carry one neutral gloss and a single gloss would work for all your lip colors. Would save you some space. 🙂
So how many lipsticks do you carry with you when you travel? 🙂
