how to build a lipstick wardrobe with illamasqua’s new lava lipsticks

I am not traditionally a lipstick girl. Generally, my go-to makeup product for any occasion will always be an eye-shadow. But that all changed when Illamasqua’s latest lip collection, Lava Lips, landed on my desk. Part of their new Aftermath range, this innovative lipstick is available in 3 game-changing shades. Offering colour intense, marbled designs with a unique twist, you can expect this to become your new makeup bag staple. But what is Aftermath and where does one begin when creating the perfect lipstick wardrobe? Let us fill you in…

Aftermath

Illamasquas’ latest collection, Aftermath, invites you to harness the power within to fight the looming decay of winter. In a season where we battle against oppressive winds and harsh elements, this innovative collection vows to breathe colour where it has disappeared.

How to build a lipstick wardrobe:

A good start when it comes to building a lipstick wardrobe is to begin with 3 distinct shades: The Everyday, The Classic and The Game Changer.

The Everyday: Tectonic

The perfect everyday shade, Tectonic is a colour intense lipstick designed with a unique recipe of two highly pigmented lipstick shades. Carefully matched, these colour duos effortlessly blend together to create a new, vibrant lip colour with every application. Expect a smooth, satin finish.

How to use: Apply straight from the bullet to create a full matte lip or use with Illamasqua Lip Brush to add ultimate definition and a super smooth finish.

Top tip: Turn the bullet as you apply to switch up the intensity of the colour.

The Classic: Rebirth

A twist on the classic red, ‘Rebirth’ intertwines a beautifully-deep burgundy shade with speckles of black for a lipstick that allows your lips to do the talking. Perfect for autumn, this two-tone formula promises to add depth to lacklustre lips.

How to use: Apply straight from the bullet to create a full matte lip or use with Illamasqua Lip Brush to add ultimate definition and a super smooth finish.

Top tip: Work the colour from the middle of the lips outwards for a shaded lip.

The Game Changer: Emanate

Up your lip game with Illamasquas’ Lava Lipstick in shade ‘Emanate’. Sure to take you out of your comfort zone, this innovative lipstick combines a unique colour duo of deep brown and caramel cream to create the perfect autumnal shade. Pair with killer heels and tousled waves for a game changing look.

How to use: Apply straight from the bullet to create a full matte lip or use with Illamasqua Lip Brush to add ultimate definition and a super smooth finish.

Top tip:  Fill the entire lip with Illamasquas Slick Stick Lip Liner in shade ‘Fervor’ before applying lipstick to keep your colour in place.
