Ever found that perfect beauty combination and thought 'why haven't I worn this before?!' Well, I had that moment earlier last month. We've all had a go at pulling off the popular 'Kylie Jenner/90's' lip trend recently, and even though this beauty craze has been going around for a while now, I still can't get enough and am loving it for a natural summer look. So I thought I would show you what my favourite 90's inspired lip combo of the moment is...

I've always been a huge huge fan of MAC products since I first started discovering make-up and have always dreamed of owning the whole lipstick collection as they are all incredible shades and also smell amazing (we've all given them a sniff - don't deny). They are super long lasting and pigmented and also come in different finishes depending on what look you're going for e.g. matte, satin and cremesheen to name a few. They are by far my favourite brand for lipsticks among other products and I always end up going back to them when I'm on the hunt for a new shade.
Anyway, enough of the brand. The first ever lipstick I bought from MAC was in the shade Brave (see picture below - top shade). It is a gorgeous dark pink nude and comes in a Satin finish which is really hydrating on the lips but slightly more sheer than a matte formula. I have now gone through three of these lipsticks because the shade is so wearable for any occasion, and even though it was the first lipstick I purchased, it is still my all time favourite.
Whilst buying this lipstick for the fourth time, a lovely lady in the MAC store had asked me whether I had tried wearing this lipstick with a lip liner underneath. She recommended me a lip liner shade called Soar which is a slightly darker shade than the lipstick (see picture below - bottom shade), and she praised this combination for giving you the perfect everyday natural shade whilst being really long lasting and durable. Of course, I give into persuasion very easily and thought I'd give it a try! This lipstick shade is amazing on its own but I can honestly say with the lip liner underneath, it gives the perfect nude shade. It lasts all day even when eating and drinking different foods (tried and tested many times - you know I can't pass on food) and also makes your lips appear plump and healthy. These two are great separately, but a dream team together.

Below you can see my natural lip colour without any product on...

...and here is the combination of the Soar lip liner and Brave lipstick over the top. Amazing and my definite go to lip. SO IN LOVE.

Finally, here is the whole make-up look put together along with the lips! If you'd like me to run through my everyday make-up routine and the products I like to use on a daily basis, then let me know in the comments.

Thank you for reading today! Hope you enjoyed this post and look out for my next post coming soon all about my ASOS wish-list (who doesn't like ASOS?!).
