Get Valentine’s Day ready with Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks

main image

Hi ladies,

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I’m sure a lot of you are starting to plan your makeup look & outfit for the evening. It’s all part of the fun in getting ready, isn’t it?

There’s no day more fitting to wear a bold red lip colour than Valentine’s Day, I think. Bourjois recently sent me a few shades of their Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick range to try out and I think the red shade ’02 Frambourjoise’ will be perfect for date night. The red colour is quite classic and glamorous and what I love most is that it doesn’t budge. Although it has a matte finish, it’s not drying and still feels very light and velvety on the lips (happy days!).

So naturally, I planned a Valentine’s Day date night outfit around this lipstick 😉 This look would be perfect for a romantic meal and drinks.

Here I’ve kept the rest of my makeup and eyes very simple and let the intense bold lip colour do the talking. I just used one eyeshadow shade, ‘Tobi’ from my palette. I used my fave nude eyeliner by Charlotte Tilbury and I added some individual lashes from Penneys to the corners of my lashes. It’s really so simple but a look I love. What do you think?

I know some people can be a bit hesitant about wearing red lipstick but with a few simple tips, I’m sure you’ll be converted.

My Top Smudge-Proof Tips for wearing Red Lippy:

– Always exfoliate lips beforehand

– Always use a liner

– Layer the product. For an intense bold look, you can build up the coverage using the applicator until you’re happy.

– Keep the rest of your make up soft and let the red lips be the focus

– Use a concealer to clean up the edges around your lips after applying the lipstick. It’s crucial to make the colour pop.
