Lustreglass by MAC in Flashmode

My favourite thing in warmer months is to switch up my lips with lipgloss. I've been trying to lighten up my makeup regime and I find lipgloss is the perfect addition. You know the look, girl next door, fresh and fuss free, no lipliners required. 

An additional benefit to gloss is that in dryer months lips remain hydrated, no caking corners only juicy plumped up lips. Having a smaller mouth like I do, I always love the extra hydration and blurred volume that can only come from a good shine.One of the key things to remember when applying gloss is that you don't want to overdo it, there is nothing worse than a string of liquid every time you open your mouth. Always start light and remember to squash your lips together after application to get a good spread and blending of the edges.

These are my top three glosses on rotation at the moment, I love the Maybelline Mandarin colour (Look 1) when I'm heading out as it brings a lot of colour and lasts well - for a girl who loves red lippy like me this is a perfect alternative. I have only just warmed to a lighter lip (look 2) but there is something so effortless about it that it suits me perfectly on a busy work day. The Lustreglass by Mac (Look 3) I always get asked about, it has a light sparkle and I find it the ultimate plumper, also tastes pretty good too!
