Edible or not, berries are my favourite! Berries are an incredible addition to our diets, providing endless health benefits; their nutrient packed bodies do wonders for both our mental and physical health. Much like their edible counterparts, berry toned cosmetics are always in style and suit everyone! On the face, berry tones, which consist of reds, blues and purples give skin a healthy, authentic colour. When these naturally occurring colours in our skin are enhanced with cosmetics we get that pinched cheek, bitten lip, “I just woke up like this” look. Below I have comprised a list of my favourite berry toned products.
**There are endless amounts and types of products that I have yet to discover or try. These are products that I use regularly in my kit as well as on myself at the moment.
These liquid lipsticks are so comfortable to wear and give the lips a beautiful pop of berry! For a stained look the product can be rubbed into the lip using a finger or brush. Alternatively, apply straight from the applicator for a bold lip!
These creams are bomb (sorry not sorry) and I have worn this colour consecutively for the past two months. Unlike many other cream blushers, this product is non-greasy and blends seamlessly into the skin. This colour is everything I want in a blush, giving my cheeks an understated but noticeable hint of natural colour that pairs perfectly with literally any makeup look. AND you can wear it on your lips for a cohesive look!
Laura Mercier (Pictured) Lipstick in Rasberry Ripple
This lipstick is heavenly. It is so smooth and creamy making it super easy and comfortable to wear. This is not a statement lip colour, in fact it is quite the opposite. One swipe of this colour (or a few finger dabs) and you have that ‘your lips but better’ look, berry edition.
NARS (Pictured) Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga
Now this is a statement colour! It is vampy, it is beautiful, it is perfect! Pale skin, darker skin, you can wear this colour. While it is more cool toned, pair it with bronzed skin and some lashes and you are golden.
NARS Lipstick in Damage
Another obsession. This lipstick is similar in texture to the Laura Mercier (mentioned above) but has a mauve tint to it. It is easy to apply, comfortable to wear and the purple tones in it make green/hazel eyes POP. This is another ‘your lips but better’ colour and is perfect for every day!
Rimmel (Pictured) Lip Liner in Cherry Kiss
Fun fact, Rimmel makes really good lip products and this lip liner is no exception. Worn on its own or as a base for a lipstick, this product is easy to apply, and has impeccable colour pay-off.
Stila (Pictured) Dual Lip and Cheek Cream in Rose
Another win! I love any multi-purpose product so long as it works! Like the BOM Lip and Cheek Cream, this product is a cream blush that also doubles as a lip tint. I love this product for a dewy, hydrated look as it has a beautiful sheen while remaining comfortable and non-greasy. This colour works on such an array of skin tones. Apply it sparingly for only a hint of colour, or work in layers for a healthy dose of berry on the cheeks (or lips)!
