Red Lippy & Brown Smokey Eyes
Yee I busted out the red lipstick for this look! I haven’t worn red lipstick in about 2 years and would mostly lean towards the darker burgundy colors, but I finally got my hands on this bright red lipstick and I am in love! This lipstick is blue-toned, which also makes your teeth appear whiter, yes, yes, yes. I paired this lipstick with a light smokey brown eye look. I decided to skip falsies this time because I didn’t want a too dramatic eye look. This is me just playing around with makeup and trying different looks. It’s still a learning process, I’m trying my best! Makeup details posted below!
MAC Eyeshadows (Vanilla, Shroom, Soft Brown, All That Glitters, Embark)
Using the Angled Blender Brush, I mix Vanilla, 1 and 2 all over the lid. I like to begin with a nude-y base. Using the Deluxe Shadow Brush, I mix All That Glitters and 3 over the lid again. Using the Deluxe Blending Crease Brush, I grab Soft Brown and apply right on my crease to have some definition. I apply this light in circling motions. Using a smaller crease brush, I apply Embark right under my crease and on the outer edge of my lid creating a sideways “v” shape. I then go back with the Deluxe Blending Crease Brush which still has some of the Soft Brown on it, I go back and blend the brown out more so there are no harsh lines. Using the Flat Liner Brush, I apply Embark on my lower lid, creating a smokey effect. I add 4 over the brown with the same brush and blend it out. Using the Mini Concealer Brush, I apply Shroom in the inner corner of my eyes, right near my tear duct. With the same brush I add the gold shadow from the palette around my tear duct. I line my lids with the ELF Liner very lightly just to create some dimension, and also in the water line. I then apply the L’Oréal mascara, followed by the Make Up For Ever Mascara for more length. On to the lips! Apply any kind of lip balm. My favorite is any of the EOS lip balms because they smell so darn good! Then I line my lips with Kiss Me Quick, over lining just a little bit on my cupids bow and the bottom middle of the lower lip. Last but not least, apply Ruby Woo over the entire lip (this lipstick smells so good!). So I hope this helped and you guys enjoyed creating this look and learning with me! What other looks should I try?!
