7 days of Nudes - #Day1

Day 1 - Mac & Luna by Lisa Jordan

Happy Monday everyone! As you all know I'm just a little bit make - up obsessed - that's even an understatement!! I really do love all things make up & in particular I love to find a good lipstick especially a good nude lip. This week I will share my lip combo of the day every day until Sunday - so stay tuned if you are in the market for a good nude lipstick, liner or gloss ๐Ÿ’‹ as I will be sharing all of my current favourites!

Today I am wearing one of my favourite nude lip liners in shade 'Soar' from MAC Cosmetics. I actually wore this liner on my wedding day! It is a beautiful pink nude & a perfect liner for many MAC lipsticks! I love to apply this one by lining my lips & then shading in the whole lip before applying the lipstick! This liner is long lasting & feels really comfortable on the lips! You can get this one from MAC Cosmetics & in store & online from Brown Thomas ๐Ÿ˜

Over the liner my lipstick of choice today is MAC 'Velvet Teddy' - an all time favourite of mine & a very popular lippie from this cosmetic brand. This is a beautiful matte finish but its such a gorgeous matte - it does not feel dry on the lips at all! This nude is a pink nude with a slight brown undertone so it is a very understated way to wear nude - just such a fab every day lippie. I can't recommend this shade enough - I wear it most days'. Another reason why I love it so much is because it feels lovely on the lips & it is so long - lasting even when eating & drinking! This one is prob my number one favourite of all the nudes!

You can buy it at MAC & in store & online from Brown Thomas.

Then over the top of the lipstick & only in the centre of my lips I applied Luna by Lisa lip gloss in shade 'Peach Opal'. This gloss was one of four glosses in the 'blush edition' of the Luna by Lisa lip collection. The shade 'Peach Opal' is a fab peachy nude gloss which dries to give a more matte finish. I apply this peachy nude in the centre of my lips to give an ombre effect to my lips. The purpose of this is to give the illusion of bigger, fuller lips! The Kylie Jenner lip effect! ๐Ÿ’‹ You can buy the Luna glosses in some pharmacies nationwide but you can also purchase them online from

I took some pics of when I applied the lip combo firstly so this is where you will see the more glossy finish. After some time the gloss dries as a matte lip so you will see this in some of the pics above. A matte lip can look very chic & sophisticated! The MAC 'Velvet Teddy' lipstick is the perfect way to achieve this without leaving a dry finish as some mattes do! 

So this was my Monday lip combo #LCOTD๐Ÿ’‹ 

Let me know if any of these are your favourites!
