Make up tip: All you need to create an inexpensive, matte, long wear lipstick is to use a creamy lipliner all over your lips.

What is that lipstick shade?

It’s a lipliner from Sephora collection- a $5 Nano lip liner in #14- “Radiant Rosy.”

The universally flattering lipshade

I’ve found as a makeup artist that there’s one lip color that looks universally flattering on every skin tone. Rose. It just always works. Maybe because it isn’t too bold, too boring, too warm, or too cool. It isn’t too anything.  It’s the perfect amount of color for an every day natural look.

If you don’t believe me, just check out these before and afters of three different women who just apply rosy cheeks and lips. 

So if you’re new to trying on lipstick and are overwhelmed with the selection, it’s safe to say a rose shade would work on you.

Or, if you’re a long time lipstick lover but just want to add something to your collection, you might be surprised that you don’t have a rose shade lipstick amongst your classic reds, bright fuchsias or glossy nudes. Sometimes you don’t want to go bold or  daring. Sometimes you just want to look like yourself with a little something special. That’s what a rose lipstick does.

Want to try a rosy lipliner all over your lips?

Here are a few great drugstore ones:

Revlon Lipliner- choose “Rose 655”

Loreal Lipliner- choose “Rose 207”

Dr. Hauschka Lipiner- choose “03 Soft Muted Rose”

And some great department store ones:

Dior Lipliner- choose “463 Bois de Rose”

Dolce & Gabbana Lipliner- choose “16 Rosa”

Sisley-Paris Lipliner- choose “The Rose”

If you find this make up trick too drying, just add a dab of gloss:

My favorite is by Buxom. It tingles. Choose “Rose Julep.”
