Autumn Inspired | Bourjois Berry Lips #GiveItAGoDaily


Autumn Inspired | Bourjois Berry Lips #GiveItAGoDaily


I have just about given in to Autumn by buying a blanket cape, having fallen in love with the Burberry blanket back on the Autumn/Winter 14 catwalk. But being a bit of a beauty junkie I wanted to take some autumn inspiration for my make up. Gone are bright spring lips and nude eyes, I have replaced with smudged smoked khol liner and burst berry lips. Think Prada and Jonathan Saunders!

“Berry lips are set to become this autumn’s statement look. Be brave and try out this look by experimenting with a range of berry colours – go for a deep matte berry shade or opt for a brighter berry colour!” - Vanesa Guallar, Make-up Artist

This can be created quite easily and by using your favourite drug store brands. In this look I am using Bourjois products that you can pick up in your local Boots. I am so sorry some of the pictures are blury, my camera refused to focus on my face and not the sofa!

Autumn Inspired | Bourjois Berry Lips #GiveItAGoDailyI started by using a small amount of Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer* to blot out the lips. It smells amazing and fruity, with extracts such as rasberries. It also has quite a matte texture and I imagine it would last well if applied on the skin. This helps create a canvas on which I can draw my lips onto. Great if like me you have a thin lip, I used a lip liner to make them look a little fuller on top

Once I had lined my lips I applied the Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Violine Strass* straight from the bullet onto my lips. I didn't need to use a lip brush because the lipstick had a pretty sharp outer line so it was soft and easy to apply. I liked this lipstick because it almost acted like a stain and even after a few hours of wear and the lipstick was in need of a quick top up, there was still a lovely berry stain to them. I also found it was quite glossy and even though I am more of a fan of matte textures, I could see myself wearing this on a night out.

On the Prada catwalk the model's lips were almost two toned but blown out at the edges. I decided to use the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in Famous Fuscia* just on the central inner section of my bottom lip. It gives a plumping effect which I think looks quite pretty! If you want to recreate the blow out effect use a cotton bud to smudge the concealer back onto the lips, inwards, bluring the lines. You could add a tiny bit of concealer onto the cotton bud to help the process along.

Lastly, a product that I am loving at the moment is the Bourjois Poudre De Riz De Java*, yeah I have no idea what this means either! It is a fine powder that has a slight iridescent shimmer that can be dusted lightly over the face. It smells amazing, almost like I imagine a powdery boudoir to smell! But because I love matte lips, I patted some onto my lips using my finger to give a matte effect and add staying power! It also has a slight lavender sheen that looked really pretty over the lipstick. 



What do you think of this look for Autumn/Winter?

Stay beautiful

  4. I really love those lip shades together. x I have that Bourjois powder too and really like using it with a big fluffy brush when my skin needs a bit of luminosity and is looking/feeling a bit dull for giving back some 'glow' (I *am* 40 in a few weeks, after all, and will take anything I can). ;-) I wish I'd stock piled some more pots now, tbh-the curse of ltd. edts! :-(
