Hi guys! A few posts ago I unboxed my very first birchbox! In the box I got a Model Co lipstick in the shade Stiletto so I thought I would do a look where the red lip is the focal point. The lipstick was very creamy to apply, dried to a demi-matte finish and was very long wearing. I was pretty impressed with this lipstick! None of my closer up pictures of this look turned out, so I didn’t really get a good one of the eye makeup. Since the red lip was front and centre, the eye wasn’t really anything special but I’ll list the products I used below as per usual!
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer in Ivory
Powder: Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder (undereye) and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light (all over face)
Blush: NARS Deep Throat
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Cornelious (crease). Urban Decay Naked Palette – Buck (all over lid). Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Blaze (centre of the lid). Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Demolition (waterline). Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (lashes).
Brows: Milani Easybrow Automatic Pencil in Taupe and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: Modelco Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick in Stiletto
I love looks like this where the rest of the face is fairly simple but there is a bold colour on the lips. When I do wear a red lipstick, this is generally the type of look I go for to avoid going over the top (unless the occasion calls for more).
