Summer Beauty Love: Gucci Sheer Lipstick
The heat is fast increasing in this part of the world which means that I’m trying to reduce my makeup to the essentials. One of the worst feelings is to leave the house and to sweat your own makeup. Sorry, I know, it’s not a nice image!
For this reason I always try to avoid to use foundations. A good cream, maybe a cc cream with SPF, is my to-go product. However, since I don’t like to stay under the sun and my skin is quite pale also during summer, I use a concealer to retouch the T-zone and to uniform the part under the eyes. At the moment I’m using Gucci Luminous Perfecting Concealer in shade 010 and I’m really happy with the texture. My skin looks radiant!
Another thing that I avoid to do during the day is to put too much make up on the eyes. I definitely like playing with bold and bright colors during the evening, experimenting new color combinations that include a lot of pink, blue and green. But during the day, I just use a natural base and then a lot of mascara. That’s it!
Said that, I try to balance the makeup putting more color on my lips.
If you live in Middle East, you know that you can easily pass from 46 degrees outside to 20 degrees indoor. So, with no doubts, I rely heavily on light textures to keep my lips from drying out. I always ask to the beauty saleswomen a light formula that moisturizes my lips while it adds color.
The latest new entry in my beauty case is Gucci Sheer lipstick in Butterfly shade (n. 650).
NEW LOVE: GUCCI SHEER LIPSTICK – BATTERFLY
The new Gucci Sheer lipstick collection, named after the animals and flowers of the Gucci Garden, includes 12 lipsticks shades – 8 best-sellers and 4 new colors. I went for Butterfly 650, a coral color which suits my dark brown hair and eyes.
The formula is really light and the texture semi transparent. I have to retouch the color during the day, since it’s not long lasting. But, I’m actually forgetting to use a lip balm, since Gucci Sheer lipstick does all the job.
Most of the time I wear this lipstick during the day. But, sometimes it happens that I use it to complete the night makeup. In this case I prefer a stronger color. So, first, I use a lip pencil to define the lips. Then, I put a base of matte lipstick (Gucci sensous deep-matte lipstick n.230) and then I apply a layer of Gucci Sheer lipstick for a glinted touch. I love it!
Gucci Sheer lipstick collection is available at Sephora, so check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
