Secret Santa Lipstick Bandit Style: The Look Swap

Merry Christmas Eve, lovely readers! I got something fun for you today. πŸ™‚

Fellow Lipstick Bandits Larie and Xiao came up with the best idea for our Christmas/Holiday collaboration: we are doing each others’ signature looks Γ  laΒ Secret Santa. We are each assigned to do a look inspired by another blogger, but our assignments have been kept a secret. Until now.

(Excited wiggling)

Anyways, I can’t keep the secret anymore so here it goes. I’ve been matched to our gorgeousΒ Jessica of Getting Cheeky! YAY!

Jessica Getting Cheeky

Jessica’s signature look consists of:

  • flawless, glowing porcelain skin;
  • bright eyes with slightly winged black liner;
  • a soft rosy lip.

Jessica has so many stunning features, including her incredible full brows and plump supermodel lips. She wears a light nude pencil on the waterline for a fresh, bright eyed look. And because I’m crazy, I am also drawing on Jessica’s charming beauty marks + freckles, erasing mine, and changing my hair colour on Photoshop. Because it’s fun. (I know, the colour is atrocious on me. It was supposed to be lighter/blonder, too, but I had to find a good middle ground.)

  • You’ve done it so well! I love how you’ve created the ‘Jessica’ brow and lip πŸ™‚ Love

    • Thanks Jenny! πŸ™‚ I was so proud of the brow and lip. They turned out exactly the way I wanted. Merry Christmas Jenny (and Diz… who I now wanna call #InstaDiz)!

  • Aww I love your rendition of Jessica’s signature look! Merry Christmas Arianne πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Sunny! xo Merry Christmas to you, your family and kitties, too!

  • Mariella D

    Jessica’s look suits you really well! Beautiful!

    • Thank you Mariella. πŸ™‚

  • Lily

    So preeeeety! This hair colour suits you well. Maybe you could dye it instead πŸ™‚

    • LOL thanks Lily I don’t know about the hair. I think it just looks overly Photoshopped to me. It needs highlights and lowlights haha.

  • JessicaGettingCheeky

    Oh my god, Arianne, I seriously squealed! You look incredible with lighter brown hair and the beauty marks? It’s so exact! I might go so far as to say that you do Getting Cheeky better than I do Getting Cheeky!

    Merry Christmas lovely!
    β™₯ Jessica

    • Thanks Jessica! <3 I knew I had to do the beauty marks because what's a Getting Cheeky lip swatch without that beauty mark? πŸ™‚ I had to.

      Merry Christmas to you and your family!

      • JessicaGettingCheeky

        I’m so happy that the beauty marks are synonymous with Getting Cheeky! I’ve only just grown to love them over the past few years, hearing that makes me happy πŸ™‚

    You nailed Jessica’s look! It looks just as fab on you as it does on her! This may be my favorite Lipstick Bandit post to date!

  • This looks so different than what I’m used to seeing on you. I really love it! Nice homage to Getting Cheeky!

    • Thanks Christa! πŸ™‚ I think we all learned from how everyone does their makeup from this collaboration. I’m gonna start wearing the light nude liner more often now.

  • Ruby Scarlett

    • Thank you so much Ruby Scarlett. I do feel ravishing as I channel Jessica for a day.
