One of my most frequently asked questions. So here you go.
(If you like this post give me a heart below : )
Lovesick by OFELIA. This dark purple-reddish color I use when I'm too lazy to do eye make up and act like I'm putting an accent on my lips. Sometimes I leave the house with just this lip color, concealer and eyebrows and people think I did make up. Maybe because that's what a lot of Vietnamese girls do for their make up routine.
I use this orange-ish colour whenver I want to look like I have something on my lips, but don't want to look either too girly or too much of a statement. The colour is called Crush On You by OFELIA.
This is the most asked for lipstick ! Like whenever I use it, somebody will ask for sure. I think it's because it makes me look rosy. And fresh I guess. When people ask me i just say YSL Vynil Cream - 404. But the full (hella long) name is actually YSL Vernis A Levres Vynil Cream - 404 62N502. I have no idea which part is the colour code haha. I use this lip cream, which is kinda drying, whenever I want to look younger my age in combination with a pink-ish blush.
I cannot mention it enough, I'm not a beauty expert. I cannot look at your complexion and tell you which color will look good on you. I don't even know what looks good on me. I bought that NARS lipstick once. The color was Julie or something and I thought it looked ok-ish until Giang, my friend, told me straight in my face that it looks shit. And I bought it anyway because I thought it looked ok-ish. And I tested it once at home and resold it very cheaply at the next garage sale. So, these three colors are the ones that work for me. A light and fresh one, a safe medium one and one darker shade for events and stuff. 26 years on this planet and that's all I have managed so far haha. So next time you see a selfie of mine and wonder what color it is, it's most likely one of these three. I'm very minimal when it comes to make up and always use the same products (even though I buy new products all the time just to find out that I liked the old one better). So if you want me to do a post about my other make up products, gimme a like below. I've been wanting to do a youtube video about this forever but you know, time. A blog entry is still faster to make than a Youtube video, but still takes so much more effort than an instagram story, which will reach about 18K+ views, and this blog entry maybe 300. But hey, you 300, I know you care, and I really appreciate you having read as far as this very sentence ! : D
Much love, Julia
