Merry Christmas Eve, lovely readers! I got something fun for you today.
Fellow Lipstick Bandits Larie and Xiao came up with the best idea for our Christmas/Holiday collaboration: we are doing each others’ signature looks à la Secret Santa. We are each assigned to do a look inspired by another blogger, but our assignments have been kept a secret. Until now.
Anyways, I can’t keep the secret anymore so here it goes. I’ve been matched to our gorgeous Jessica of Getting Cheeky! YAY!
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.)
