Face of the Day: Red Lips

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I was still playing around with the Majolica Majorca palette today, and I wanted something very different from the smoky eye look that I did in my previous post.

I decided to do a bold lip with the NYX Round Lipstick in Snow White that I received in the mail the other day. This was my first time trying a red lip (unless you count the kindergarten concerts), and I was pretty nervous as to the outcome!

If you're not sure what shade of red lipstick to wear, you can check out my guide to finding the perfect shade of red for your skin tone here.

I chose to keep the eye clean and simple, light-coloured eyeshadows in the Majolica Majorca Trick On Palette in GR750.

On my lids is the light pink shadow, and I used the white colour to highlight underneath my brows and on the inner corners of my eyes.

To add a little dimension to my (really flat) eye, I used the green eyeshadow in my crease.

The eyeliner I'm using is MAC's Fluidline in Blacktrack.

I used Benefit's Benetint on my cheeks, and highlighted them with TheBalm's Mary Lou-Manizer.

Okay, the final touch....don't laugh at me!

I have a little mole on my left cheek, but it's pretty light and not extremely noticeable. I accentuated it a little bit, using Chanel's Le Crayon Kohl in Noir. I thought it would be kind of cute.

And there's my bold lip! I hope you guys enjoyed this FOTD. If you tried it, send me a link or some pictures, I'd love to see your take on the bold lip!
