Remember when I said last year that I couldn’t wear bright lips in public? Well, ladies, things have changed here at Glitter Geek. Not only am I posting a bright lips FOTD, but I am glad to say that I now wear fuchsia and red lips in public. Unfortunately I have nowhere to go today so only my cat is seeing me all gussied up.
Today’s look was inspired by Gwen Stefani’s makeup in InStyle magazine April 2010. Work it, Gwen!
Get the Look
For the eyes, fill in the brows. You don’t want wimpy brows with a very strong lip look. Using a fluffy crease brush (MAC 217), apply a warm matte medium brownall over the lid and past the crease. Next, take a dark matte brown and apply all over the lid. Blend. Using a smudger brush, apply the same dark brown to the outer crease, and outer two-thirds of the lower lash line. Using the liner brush of your choice (Sonia Kashuk bent liner brush), apply a thick line of black eyeliner on your upper lash line. Take your time, go over it a few times to get the right shape and deep colour. Finish off with lots and lots of mascara.
For the cheeks, contour with a matte bronzer on your temples and hollows of your cheeks. Add a coral blush to the apples of your cheeks.
For the lips, line and fill in with a cherry red lipliner. Top off with a bright fuchsia lipgloss.
