Earlier this week, Lottie Tomlinson reached a huge milestone in her career by launching her own set of lip and nail kits with Nails inc. With her experience as a makeup artist, it would be easy to assume that coming up with four go-to colors would be easy for Lottie, but that wasn’t the case. In a new interview, she talked about the process in choosing the colors that would represent her, and what ultimately led her to creating the collection.
Lottie revealed that the inspiration behind creating these matte and liquid lipsticks came from “a lot of my own things that I love to wear and my go-to colors.”
When it came to narrowing down the shades, the makeup artist revealed that the process was “a bit of a trial and error" because she wanted to "[make] sure it would be something that I would wear.”
The main inspiration for creating these shades came from Lottie’s experience in trying tons of liquid lipsticks, and realizing that she couldn’t find one that felt comfortable in wearing.
“I think there are a lot of liquid lipsticks out there that are really hard to wear. We wanted to find a really good formula that made sure they were totally matte, but still comfortable on the lips,” she said.
So what can one do before putting on a liquid lipstick to make sure it stays on comfortably? Lottie shared her number one tip, which just so happens to be a little lip prep with a scrub.
“I do a lip scrub, then put lip balm on and kind of blot that off. Then put a little bit of translucent powder on the lips and then the lip paint over. That’s how you get the best application. Lip prep is really important,” she dished.
There you have it! If you want your lips to look their best, make sure you prep your lips before putting on whatever lip color you want.
