Hi guys! Today’s holiday look encompasses one of my favourite parts of this time of year, a classic red lip. And of course, for this I had to use one of my favourite reds, Too Faced Melted Matte in Lady Balls. I get so many compliments when I wear this colour and I definitely wear it more than ever during the holidays. Each time I wear it, I secretly hope that someone asks me what colour I’m wearing because this shade has such a great name. The looks I get when I say I’m wearing “Lady Balls” makes it so worth it.
Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm in Sensitive
Foundation: Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in 0.5
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral
Powder: Becca Blotting Powder Perfector (translucent)
Blush: Becca – Flowerchild
Contour: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit – Sombre & Lucid (mixed)
Highlight: Becca – Prosecco Pop & Champagne Pop
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette – Combust (transition) Whiskey (creaste), High (all over lid), Dirty Sweet (centre/outer-v and under eye) and Radar (outer-v). The Balm Mr Write (Now) in Jac (waterline). Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara.
Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Taupe
Lips: Too Faced Melted Matte – Lady Balls
For this look I decided to pair it with a simple eye look using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette as I wanted my lips to be the centre of attention. Each time I dig out this palette I forget how much I enjoy using it. The shadows included are a joy to use. I chose this palette as originally I was going to do something smoky but then ended up drawn to the golden nude shades instead. This allowed my classic red lip to stand out more.
