The 5 Shades Of Lipstick Every Girl Should Have

Every girl needs a great pout to finish off the perfect look. As a beginner, I wish someone told me to buy specific colours instead of me going wild and buying several shades of pink. Well, I’m here to help you out and tell you the 5 shades of lipstick every girl should have in her makeup bag.

1. Red


Every girl needs a red lipstick. It’s beautiful and a great red lippie fits every shade of skin. My favorite one is ‘Funke’ from House of Tara. You can get a tube from any House of Tara store in Lagos and around the country.

2. Pink


Why should you have pink lipstick? Why shouldn’t you? Finding a nice shade to fit your skintone may be hard but when you find that perfect pink, you’re on your way to a perfect pout. Get NYX Butter Lipstick in Taffy from The Beauty Boon

3. Purple


I’ve always loved purple lipsticks because they are so different. A nice deep purple can add a ‘vanpy’ element to your makeup. Milani makes a beautiful purple and it is called Sangria. Get it at The Beauty Boon 

4. Nude


For days when you don’t want to stand out, use a nude lip to tone things down. It’s perfect for work and for days when you don’t want your lips to be the star. Get MAC’s Velvet Teddy (a cult favorite) at any MAC store.

5. A wildcard colour


For the days you want to be bold, the days when regular colors don’t just cut it and for the days when your makeup is an extension of yourself, go for a cool wildcard color that you have never imagined yourself wearing. I couldn’t find any retailer in Nigeria that sells crazy colors but a color I want to try is blue! This lip tar is from OCC. Get it when you travel. Or force your cousin or aunty to get it when they travel.

Stay fab!
