All of the National Lipstick Day inspo you need

Let’s be real, when it comes to lip products it’s hard to look past M.A.C Cosmetics. They literally have over 200 products in their line up and feature every colour and finish imaginable. I mean they even have yellow and green, yes really!

TBH, we find it hard to not swatch or try on every gloss, liquid lipstick and classic bullet whenever we walk past their infamous glossy, black counters. Do ya feel me?

Lucky for us, to celebrate National Lipstick Day on Saturday July 29, M.A.C Senior Artist, Kiekie Stanners took Miss FQ‘s Skye Ross through five key lip trend tutorials, including the metallic oil slick, glossy nude, frosted glitter, ombre and velvet matte lip look. 2017’s makeup just got hotter!
