Lipstick makes all the difference. I have mentally acknowledged this reality on an innumerable amount of occasions…from a swipe of baby pink to add a casual glow to a meticulously applied classic red for a timeless effect (see HERE), there is simply something so transformative about veiling one’s lips in color. Today, I am excited to share two diverse looks–created by a pair of lipsticks on either side of the shade spectrum–featuring an array of new favorites from Le Metier de Beaute.

8. As aforementioned, lips are all about a soft pinky beige effect. I first prepped them with the moisturizing Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in Creme Caramel (a muted rosegold nude) and then lined them with the rosy *Le Metier de Beaute Waterproof Lip Liner in Saffron and then applied the *Le Metier de Beaute Moisture Matte Lipstick in La Vie en Rose for a muted result.

Look #2: Coral Forest
Sometimes, one must venture outside of one’s comfort zone and such is the case with this classic coral look. Combined with a modest brown winged eye and a vibrant Ferragamo silk scarf, the result is positively metamorphic!
To achieve this look, I followed steps 1-6 from above. Then, I:
7. Drew a medium-width line along the upper lash line with the *Le Metier de Beaute Dualistic Gel Eyeliner in Sequoia, a rich matte brown, and brought it to a slight wing at the corners of the eye. Before it sets, his formula is smudgeable for a delightfully diffused finish.
8. I then used the *Le Metier de Beaute Waterproof Lip Liner in Echo to define the perimeters of the lips and followed with the *Le Metier de Beaute Moisture Matte Lipstick in Cinema, a bold yet soft coral, to complete the look.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this Le Metier de Beaute lip color-centric tutorial and wish you a bounty of blessings in the New Year!
