Red Lips Valentine's Day Makeup10:15
This weekend will be Valentine's Day and it's a good excuse to wear some jaw dropping makeup and clothes and spend you're day spoiling yourself. Either by yourself or with someone else. I wanted to create a kinda sexy classic makeup with red lips. It's one of those looks that I like to wear whenever I want to glam up a bit. This will definitely suit everyone.
I started by applying a beige base to set primer. Then I added light warm brown in the crease and blended it out. I further darkened it with medium red toned warm brown in the outer corner. At a very outer v I used dark matte brown and contoured a bit.
I added a shimmery bronzy brown on the lid. In the inner corner I placed light golden shade to warm up the look. On the bottom lash line I used the same three matte browns, concentrating darker shades in the outer half.
The shimmery brown I added on the inner half. Then I used dark matte brown and created a little winged liner. I also went over it, but didn't completely covered it, with liquid matte black eye liner. Then I used a little brush and tried to diffuse them together to get a bit softer liner look.
I finished with mascara.
On the rest of my face, I used a very light dewy BB cushion. I concealed my redness and spots with concealer. Then I powdered, because the BB cream is very dewy. I added warm matte bronzer around my outer part of the face and to accentuate my cheeks a bit. I first added shimmery champagne gold highlighter on tops of my cheeks, but then added a bit lighter pinkier shimmer pearls all over my cheeks, on the nose and a bit above my arch brow for a really glowy look.
On my lips I went for a classic bold matte red lipstick. I also used a bit of lip liner, because I like my red lip to be defined and have very precise edges.
Bold red lip is sure to stop your lover's heart beat just for a second and if you don't have a significant other, who cares. You can look fab for your girlfriend's day out or just eating chocolate and watching TV.
I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Face Paint book by Lisa Eldridge:
"Painting on a red mouth has the uncanny knack of seeming to belong to antiquity and tradition whilst simultaneously appearing decidedly modern and daring."
