Lipstick, not only for your lips.

Lipstick, not only for your lips.
Lipstick. Why only use it on the lips?

I’m a big fan of using products for what they’re not initially meant to be used for. Experimenting can lead to great results, and unforeseen mistakes can create a whole new dimension. Why always doing the obviously? Let’s think outside the box!

Envelop lips in vibrant red color, lasting luster and rich moisture. Rouge Rouge is the go to collection of creamy moisturizing lipsticks in an extraordinary spectrum of reds. Using Vibrant Red Color Technology, Shiseido has exclusively developed sixteen of the most flattering shades-nuanced, intense, unforgettable with a red for everyone. Rouge Rouge exudes a beautiful luster and creates impeccable lip-definition, making your lips appear more brilliant than ever before.

Even though the Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipsticks exist for quite some time now, I have only recently really discovered them and decided to make them the star of this article. I fell in love with these creamy moisturizing lipsticks and there’s not one colour that I don’t like.  All I needed was a beautiful model -Nya was the perfect choice- with beautiful lips and the idea for a This Is Peggy editorial shoot was born!

I started with a ‘no make-up look’ on Nya -kudos to my assistant Do for a great job!- and moved on from there.

Step 2: apply some lipstick – I chose a plum colour Ruby Copper RD 501 – on the eyes and blend it out with the fingers

Step 3: in true granny style we apply lipstick on the cheeks -Coral Shore RD 309-, still one of my favourite ways to create a beautiful blush!

Prachtig model én foto’s! Waarom zou je lipstick inderdaad niet meer voor meer doeleinden gebruiken.. het is een beetje een gewoonte om voor alles iets anders te gebruiken. Ik moet je eerlijk bekennen dat ik lipstick ook alleen op mijn lippen gebruik, maar wordt door jouw artikel wel geprikkeld om het bij voorbeeld weer eens als blush te gebruiken. Op mijn ogen zou ik het denk ik zelf niet snel gebruiken.
