Makeup Monday: Holiday Lips



Makeup Details:
 
Eyes: Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion, MAC Zoom Lash

Face: Too Faced Beauty Balm in Vanilla Glow, Smashbox blush in Chiffon

Lips: MAC Prep + Prime lip, MAC Half-Red lip liner, AERIN mini lipstick in Dahlia (not as dark as it looks), Urban Decay deluxe shadow in Honey.
 
Glasses: Payton frames, c/o Lookmatic  (use code keikolynn20 for 20% off through December 31st)
 
 
Lookmatic let me pick out a some new glasses, and asked that I create a couple of makeup looks to go with them. Since the Payton frames are so dark and thick, I wanted a bold lip to balance it out. But rather than going with my ubiquitous red or fuchsia, I went with a vampy bluish red. To give it a little more depth, I lined with a darker liner and blended it inward (blending is key), then added a dab of gold shadow to the center of my bottom lip. It's an easy way to give your lipstick a little extra oomph.

The next look is focused on the eyes, and I'll have it for you a little later this week. Until then, let me know if you try out this easy to replicate look!

    1. MAC Endless Drama or Dubonnet would be similar, or Smashbox Mocha, NARS Terre de Feau or Volga. Let me know if you need other recommendations!

  18. You look so good in these photos and I've always been afraid of trying dark lips since my lips are so small I'm afraid it'll look awkward.. but now I'm inspired to try!
