Hey my lovelies,
We are in September and you all know what that means. That means autumn is almost upon us and its the perfect time to rock those dark berry toned lipsticks (not that I need a season to wear a dark lip 😝) Here is a look I created with a dark lipstick. Please read on to know how I did it and what products I used. I will also include my outfit details in this post.
Skin Prep – I used The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate under my eyes. Clinique Moisture Surge extended thirst relief as my moisturizer followed by the Vichy Ideal soliel SPF 50 sunscreen as I was going out.
For my Primer I used the Innisfree no-sebum Blur Primer.
Foundation and concealer : I used Maybelline Fit Me foundation Matte + Poreless in 310 sunbeige. I went with the MAC Prolong wear concealer in NC45 to correct and followed with Maybelline Fit Me concealer in shade # 25 medium to highlight my under eyes a bit.
Bronzer and Blush : I wanted to keep the face to a minimun. So I didn’t use a blush. But I bronzed and contoured with Revlon Photoready Bronzer in Bronzed & chic as my face was looking flat.
Brows – I used the same old combo of Colorbar brow pencil in Chestnut and the NYX brow mascara in Espresso.
Eyes – I kept my eyes to a minimum too as the lips were the spotlight of this look. With a cool toned ashy brown eye shadow I contoured my eyes. I drew a winged liner using a black eye shadow which I smudged a little to give it a smokey effect. I added the same brown eye shadow to the lower lid also.
Now comes the lips – I went with the darkest plum lipstick I could get my hands on. This is the MAC Retro Matte liquid lipstick in shade High Drama
Outfit – I chose to wear this dirty mauve floral off shoulder dress because of the prints that matches my lipstick shade( I got lucky 😝).
I wore these taupe boots to give an edge to this otherwise cute yet casual dress.
