Hey everyone! Today we are going to be taking a dip into colour with tips on how to pair bright colours like the famous red lip and a daring yellow on your nails. Now, a lot of people are not willing to try a mix of many colours, but thankfully you have us. So if you are a daring diva that loves some colour, here you go.
While red never goes out of trend, decade in and decade out, it does get boring for me every so often. So how do I keep my red fresh and upbeat? I jazz it up by pairing it with other colours.
Have you ever really considered pairing your red lips with a very bright colour? It is the perfect combo. My favourite red lipstick for this look is the Wet n Wild Lipstick in Stoplight Red. Though it is a bright red colour, it is also moisturizing on the lips and suitable for most skin tones. I absolutely love the gradient it gives the lips when I step into a bright place and the best part is it’s affordable.
The Red Lip
To get a red lip, just follow these easy steps:
- Make sure lips are well moisturized and not flaky
- Using a red lip pencil, outline and fill the outer corners of the lips (the red pencil helps to intensify the colour of the lipstick at the corners)
- Blend this into the lips properly either by way of firmly smacking lips together or using a lip brush
- Apply lipstick directly from the tube following the outline of the pencil at the edges.
- Blot lips with tissue and…
- Re-apply lipstick

Bright Yellow Nails
For our yellow nails, you can’t go wrong with the L.A. Girl Disco Brites Psychedelic nail polish; plus it glows in the dark. It needs a couple of coats to pop so be patient with it. Be sure to finish it up with a good top coat like Seche Vite.
