It’s officially spring, but damn does it still ever feel like winter here in Toronto! There’s no snow on the ground (thank the lawd!) but the temps are still not nice enough to ditch the winter jacket. However, this means that me donning a dark vampy lip isn’t such a crazy thing. I got FACE atelier Lipstick in Revenge in a recent swag bag, so I thought I’d showcase it today in this look.
FACE atelier Lipstick in Revenge
Swatches (from left): MAC Arena, MAC Satin Taupe, MAC Coquette, MAC Brun, MAC All That Glitters
Get the Look
For the eyes, brighten your lids by patting on a low shimmer light peach (MAC Arena) eyeshadow. Using a fluffy blending brush, lightly blend a dark shimmery taupe (MAC Satin Taupe) in the crease. Apply more taupe to the outer corners of the eyes. To define the eye further, take an angled liner brush with a matte medium taupe (MAC Coquette) and lightly draw on the crease line. Soften the line with a blending brush. Line the upper and lower lash lines softly with a dark cool brown eyeshadow (MAC Brun). Highlight the inner corners and brow bone with a shimmery beige (MAC All That Glitters). Add mascara (Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill).
For the face and cheeks, mix foundation (Cover FX Natural FX in M50) with a shimmery loose powder highlighter (MAC Gold Studio Finish Face Powder) and apply all over. Spritz with a setting spray (MAC Fix+) for a dewy complexion. Apply a mattifying blot powder (Cover FX Matte FX in Medium) to the T-zone only. Add a healthy glow to the cheeks with a shimmery pink blush (Marcelle Pink Fusion Multi-colour Powder Blush).
For the lips, apply a dark red lipstick (FACE atelier Revenge) precisely with a lip brush. Top off with a complementing lip gloss (CHANEL Fatale Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss).

The lipstick is actually a tad darker than the lipstick + lipgloss combo, but I like how the glossy lips turned out. I should probably show you the lipstick on its own:

What Looks Have You Been Wearing Lately?
I’d love to know what kind of new looks you’ve tried lately, or have been wearing a lot. I kinda feel like I’ve been in a makeup funk lately. Maybe we’ll all inspire each other.
