My favourite lipsticks

Lipstick game strong

Hi my loves,

I guess you already know that I am certainly one of the biggest lipstick junkies on earth. If there would be one single thing I could take with me on a lonely island, I would go for a red lipstick!

So many just don’t know that a touch of lipstick can change a complete look within seconds. When you are not really awake in the morning just take a red lipstick and your face will get a radiant glow immediately! You do not need anything more, just a hint of colour.

I use lipsticks since many many years now and my favourites are the red and pink tones. I prefer bluish tones because they are the best option for my teeth and skin colour. I usually avoid everythig with orange or coral.

So how do I start with my lip make-up?


Step 1 – Preparation

To prepare my lips for the upcoming colour I start with a soft peeling. Therefore I use the Dior Colour Graduation Lip Sugar Scrub. But you can also use other scrubs or just take your normal teeth brush and work it a little bit along your lips.

Step 2 – Concealer

Afterwards I take a bit of creamy concealer and apply it along my lip contours to guarantee that the following lip colour will stay several hours.

Step 3 – Lipliner

After the concealer I take the lipliner and thats a quite important step. Precision is aked! It might take a while to get the perfect result but after 10 tries you should be done 😉 I normally color the whole lips with the liner to intensify the upcoming lip colour and to guarantee a long long hold.

Step 4 + Step 5 Lipstick and Magic Fix

So the last and final steps includes applying the colour. First I just apply a first layer, then take a kleenex and clamp it between my lips to absorb too much colour. You probably know the problem with the teeth, right? Now I apply a second layer of colour and fix it with a pale lip fix like the Artdeco Magic Fix.


I can also recommend the lispticks from Astor, there is a glossy fix included and the colour lasts all day long. The only reason why I do not use it every day is because it dries out the lips. This is why I use a different lipstick every day. And isn’t it unbelievable how different lipstick colours can change your whole look?




So this was my daily lipstick routine. How do you do your lips? Do you use colours like red or pink or do you prefer nude shades?

Have a great Sunday,

Monique xx

    Ich kann auch nicht ohne meine geliebten Lippenstifte und finde deinen Blogpost super. Am liebsten trage ich dunkle Rottöne, wobei es aber auch gern mal ins dunkle Lila gehen darf oder aber auch Braun.

    Liebe Grüße, Milli

    […] Die GenNude Lippenstifte und Liglosse habe ich euch schon vorgestellt. Neben dem Tutu Lippenstift ist der Forbidden Lipgloss meine erste Wahl im Frühling. Ich mag zwar auch knallige Töne, aber manchmal steht mir der Sinn eben auch nach etwas mehr Natürlichkeit. Hierfür sind die Farben perfekt. Sie betonen meine natürliche Lippenfarbe. […]
