I am a member of the Lipstick Bandits. We obsess over lipstick, and convince you that yes, you do need another red lipstick because this one is a blue red, while that one is a tomato red. Or this one is a matte, and that one is a cream. You get the point.
Because we are a band of beauty bloggers, naturally we make a pact with a face of the day. Here’s mine.
Products I Used
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. Apply a ridiculous amount as a mask, and line eyes to create a feline shape… mrrreow!
L’Oreal Black Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara. Generously run through top and bottom lashes.
shu uemura tutu laceflare False Eyelashes*. Because it’s fun to make your eyes feel like ballerinas.
Illamasqua Alchemy Precision Ink Liner. Outline the mask with this fine glitter liner. Because it’s not a Glitter Geek mask without glitter!
Marcelle Pure Gold Lux Diamond Liquid Eyeliner*. Add a chunkier glitter on top of Alchemy for high shine and sparkle.
FACE atelier 6 Honey mixed with Zero Plus Ultra Foundation. Nothing says badass bandit like a flawless base.
Marcelle Translucent Medium Face Powder*. Set with loose powder patted on with a brush.
FACE atelier Revenge Lipstick. Apply a dark red around the edges of the lips and feather / blend inwards.
Vasanti USA Soft Finish Matte Lipstick. Apply a true red in the middle of the lips for an ombré effect.

Who am I kidding?
Hope you enjoyed the look. I had a lot of fun creating it and feeling slightly creepy while wearing this makeup. Don’t forget to visit my fellow lipstick bandits’ amaaaazing creations:
