The Mauve Lip

There's just something about that perefectly grey-toned mauve lip that's incredibly modern and lusted for in makeup right now. It's another "blame Kylie Jenner" moment in lipstick land but I bow my head and happily oblige.

My current lip combination as of late has been this perfect slightly grey-tinged mauve lip, and here's what I use to achieve it:

1. Lancome Natural Mauve Lip Liner
A staple lip liner that perfectly matches my lips and allows me to create the perfect shape while looking natural. This also lets me overdraw my lips without looking like a blow-up doll.

2. Alima Pure Velvet Lipstick in Emma
Alima Pure asked me to choose a colour from their awesome Pure Velvet lipstick range and the shade "Emma" piqued my interest. It's a lot more mauve and cool-toned than what I expected but it's incredibly comfortable, has a soft matte finish and it's the perfect modern mauve to wear this fall. I have been impressed with every bit of makeup I have tried from Alima Pure so far. They're an all-natural mineral makeup brand with a great mission and you can read more about their ingredients here (they use no dimethicone, parabens, sulfates, etc. in their products).

What's your go-to mauve lip right now?
