The holidays are right around the corner. Are you ready to flaunt your holiday makeup?
To celebrate our Haul of Fame brand of the month, UOMA Beauty, we’ve got the missing piece to complete your holiday makeup look. UOMA Beauty’s Black Magic Hypnotic Impact High Shine Lipstick, in the shade Love, is one worth adding to your makeup bag this season.
To help you achieve the perfect lip for all your holiday soirees, whether you’re celebrating with friends, family or colleagues, we’ve got some oh-so-simple tips for you. All you need are these three quick and easy tips for a flawless festive pout:
Exfoliate your lips
Just like our skin, our lips are also prone to accumulating dead skin cells, which can leave them feeling dry or chapped. One way to get rid of dead skin cells is by exfoliating your lips. Aim to exfoliate your lips at least once a week and avoid over-exfoliating as this can do more harm than good.
Before you start applying your lip makeup, prep your lips by applying a lip scrub. Besides getting rid of dead skin cells, exfoliating your lips also leaves you with smooth, soft and hydrated lips. Remember to use gentle circular motions when massaging the scrub over your lips. Be as gentle as you can to prevent irritating your lips.
Apply a bold and nourishing lipstick
After you’re done exfoliating, you should follow up with a lip balm or lip mask for extra nourishment. One of the great things about UOMA Beauty’s Black Magic Hypnotic Impact High Shine Lipstick is that you can skip the lip balm step. Infused with brazil nut oil, this lipstick keeps your lips moisturised with the added bonus of a bold pop of colour.
The shade Love will undoubtedly become your holiday favourite, giving you a medium, reddish-plum colour with soft and warm undertones in one effortless swipe. The colour, along with its smooth and buttery texture, is *chef’s kiss*.
Thanks to its innovative hybrid formula, you can enjoy all the nourishing benefits of a lip balm, with an amazing colour payoff of a lipstick and the high-shine finish of a lip gloss. As long as this lipstick is a part of your holiday makeup look, you can expect to achieve an enviable festive pout!
Add a touch of highlighter
Before you head out to your holiday party, why not add one last finishing touch to really make your lipstick pop?
Add a touch of highlighter to the Cupid’s bow of your lips as well as the centre of your bottom lip. This quick and easy trick will add some depth to your lips and create an illusion of fuller lips. We recommend using a highlighter like PAESE’s Wonder Stick, which is an easy-to-use stick that gives you a nice, luminous glow. Just make sure you blend the highlighter for a more natural finish. And voila, you’re ready to flaunt your perfect lip for your holiday party!
