Always remember that with the natural colour of your lips it may darken the lipstick upon application.
Blue undertones tend to be colder and orange tend to be warmer. Rather than thinking of a colour wheel system, work with the idea of cool and warm. This will give you an idea of what suits you best. For example:
- Cool: blues, burgundies, some pinks and purples
- Warm: oranges, browns
Anita: What beauty tricks can you share with the average working woman who only has 5 minutes in the morning to devote to makeup?
Liz: A little concealer, groomed brows, mascara, blush and gloss can all be applied super speedy and give you a really groomed look. Add a little highlight to the inner corner of the eye to open them up and you are good to go.
Red lips don’t have to be a chore, use your red lipstick sparingly and sweep a light amount of the colour across lips, using your finger to blot and press it into lips for a diffused red tint which is soft with no hard edges. It takes a few seconds but gives you a pop of colour and polished look which is easy to maintain through the day.
Anita: What are Rimmel London’s famous reds?
Liz: One of my favorites is Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Colour in Red Alert, a true London-bus red that suits everyone.
Anita: What is your signature style when approaching makeup?
Liz: I always use makeup to enhance a woman’s natural beauty, its not about a mask. I love skin to look fresh and beautiful.
Anita: If a woman was looking to change-up her makeup pallet, what Rimmel London product would you recommend?
Liz: I love the versatility that the Glam’Eyes Quad gives. There are four shades in each palette that you can use alone or play with. Some of the shades are really bold and fun to experiment with.
Or why not try a lipstick shade you wouldn’t usually wear, apply lightly and add some gloss or balm over the top. Then as you get used to the new shade leave off the balm and gloss and apply fully to the lip. Some great shades to try this with are Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Jet Set Red, In Vogue and Temptation, or Moisture Renew Lip Colour in Red Alert or Mauve Pink. I love pairing these with the new Moisture Renew Lipgloss.
Anita: Any advice for women or teens who are wearing makeup for the first time?
Liz: Don’t put too much on. I see so many girls with heavy foundation, in the wrong shade, applied over perfect skin – it drives me mad!! If you have good skin, just apply concealer where you need it, or mix your foundation with a little moisturizer, it will make it much sheerer. If you can’t get the colour exactly right go for Rimmel’s Match Perfection Foundation as it adjusts to your skin color. Don’t try to paint a mask on your face; enhance what you have. Emphasize one feature, whether its eyes or lips, not both, and don’t be afraid of colour. A colour on the eye always looks great. Experiment, if you don’t like it wash it off! Have fun!
Anita: Thank you Liz! We learned a lot and I am looking forward to Rimmel London’s tutorials on Kate Middleton and the Royal Wedding.
