What lipstick (drug store and high end) is like the one Kylie Jenner used last week in that black and white crotchet top?

Asked by

I’ve been getting quite a few questions about lipstick dupes for lipsticks in Kylie’s recent Instagram photos! Kylie Jenner seems to be wearing a lot of darker mauves, rosy nudes and beige nude lipsticks. Lip liner is also key to get her new signature pouty lip look! 

Try shades like

MAC Brave

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 08 and 14. 08 (left) is more of a rosy nude while 14 (right) is more of a beige nude.

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Spiked With Rum

MAC Velvet Teddy

Can i use a powder thats 2 or 3 shades darker than my skin tone as a bronzer for contoring

Asked by

Totally! But i’d recommend maybe going 3 - 4 shades darker because if it’s too similar to your skin it can look muddy :)

I’d recommend something like the Loreal True Match Powder in one of their “cool” shades instead of their warm/neutral shades because you want to use a cooler powder for contouring. The Loreal True Match Powders are super silky and blend like a dream making them great for contouring and bronzing!

Do you suggest using a cream contour if you have oily skin?

Asked by

Cream contour actually works best for oily skin! :)

A powder contour tends to wear off during the day and fade for people with oily skin. You’ve probably noticed your blush and bronzer is a lot more faded at the end of the day, thats because your oils are breaking down the powder and causing it to wear off. 

Using a cream bronzer or darker foundation to contour will last a lot longer than a powder contour because it’s sticking to the foundation and not just sitting on the skin. Setting your cream contour with a powder bronzer will help it last even longer! A lot of people use a cream blush and then set it with a powder blush because it helps the blush stay all day, sort of acting like a glue.

However if you plan on using face powder over it might cover up all the cream contouring you just did. So you’d want to set your face with translucent powder (white powder that goes on colorless) instead of tinted pressed powder. Translucent powder is great for oily skin anyway! If you don’t want to use translucent powder just use a very thin layer of your normal powder :)

So yes i’d recommend cream contouring for oily skin, just make sure to set it with a powdered contour and use translucent powder over.
