Sometimes I find a makeup look that works for me, and I wear it continuously for the following weeks. This is one of these times. I am all about simple, fresh skin and a bold lip right now…
I’ve said this before, but I’m really not the kind of person that suits bold eyes. I have very sensitive eyes (as in, the actual eyeball – the skin is fine!) and too much product gets them looking super red, so I tend to slick on lashings of mascara and a nice subtle shade on the lid. It works for me, but it’s a little boring at times – which is why I usually tend to opt for something a bit more daring on my lips.
Right now I can’t get enough of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned – this deep berry hue is my shade of choice for the, er, Spring months. I know, an odd pick for the season but I’m werkin’ it!
I filmed this look as a tutorial after many requests, so you can watch that in action below. This also gave me the chance to introduce two new Illamasqua products I’m obsessing over right now! The Masquara Gains mascara and the Beyond Powders in OMG – two perfect products that I’m recommending to anyone who’ll listen.
Feel free to leave me some love on the above – it encourages me to make more!
What do you think of this look?
