Restrictions may be easing and the inevitable return to the office looming, but we are still very heavily committed to the no-makeup makeup look that has reigned supreme during quarantine.
So, while we look forward to donning a full beat eventually, at the moment we’re a bit more obsessed with the whole ‘less is more’ approach - we’re talking moisturised bare skin, groomed brows, and a sheer wash of colour on the lips for that oh-so-covetable ‘just-bitten’ pout.
Here are the lippies we’re lusting after for that glace cherry finish:
HOURGLASS Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss
This lip gloss comes in an alarmingly large number of stunning neutral shades; we’re talking caramels, roses, and peachy hues, all in a sheer, shimmer finish that’ll leave you with lips à la Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Ultra Violette Sheen Screen SPF50 Lip Balm
For the practical lass, this lip balm features SPF50 UVA/UVB protection, as well as a hydrating balmy formula that keeps lips moisturised and shiny. We recommend Peach, a poppy orangey-red shade.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Rock'N Shine
Honestly, who isn’t a fan of the YSL Rouge Volupte’ lipsticks? The brand has reinvented its iconic lippy with a stunning star-shaped sparkle balm center that moisturises and adds a bit of shimmer to your look.
Ere Perez Mango Lip Honey
Although the name ‘Mango Lip Honey’ conjures up fantastical visions of tropical destinations, the reality is that this vegan lip gloss is packed full of good for you ingredients that help to maintain lip health, keeping lips plumped and pout-worthy.
