Red lips are glamorous and always in vogue, I have been lately bitten by the ‘red lips’ bug and those who’ve been following my blog would have seen my numerous looks with red lips. I’d shied away from red lips earlier but I’d attribute by love for red lips to my discovery of my perfect red shade – Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’.
Here are a few of my favorite celebrity red lips looks in no particular order-
1. Taylor Swift
Whether its the modern-fairytale tale look with her loose blonde curls or an elegant red carpet look , she pulls off red lips with such ease. Definitely one of my favorites!
How to wear this look : Use a shimmery silver- champagne eyeshadow all over lid especially in the inner corners, thick winged black liner on upper lash line, natural brown/flesh colored liner on waterline and lots of mascara (or better, false eye lashes ) paired with rosy pink cheeks.
Today I’m doing a tutorial on a very simple eye makeup that I love wearing. I like to call it ‘Smoldering Summer eyes‘.
The basic idea is to frame the upper and lower lash line + water line with kohl /black smudgy eye pencil and then smudge and set with an eye shadow like brown/gray/blue/green..(you can use whichever shade you want ). The result is smoldering look which can be paired with a subtle lipstick/gloss for everyday wear. I’ve been wearing this look a lot lately and experimenting with different colored eye shadows to smudge the kohl.
Time it takes : 5-7 min. No precision is required since its a soft smudgy look with no precise lines.
Today I’m reviewing one of the favorite blushes – LAKME Pure rouge blusher in the shade ‘Rose Crush‘ . It is a matte earthy pink powder blush which gives an earthy rosy glow and looks very flattering for Indian skin tones.
Price : Rs 395
Quantity : 6 g
Packaging : It has a rectangular maroon(signature Lakme!) sleek casing with a transparent cover and brush provided inside. This casing comes housed in a maroon cardboard casing open at two opposite ends so the inside casing can be slid out easily. The packaging is quite sturdy and the transparent cover snaps shut snugly. The brush provided is of good quality, the bristles are quite soft and does the job of application quite well. I don’t require another blush brush when using this blush. The only con of the packaging is the absence of a mirror for touch ups.
Today I’m doing a Bubble gum pink look inspired by MAC Senior Artist Vimi Joshi’s Hot Bubble Gum Pink look ( Quite Cute Collection) recently posted on Twitter by the artist herself. Click HERE to see the inspiration behind this look.
The products used By Vimi J to create this look are from the MAC Quite cute collection. I’ve tried to recreate the look using whatever products I had. Some of the colors(like the lip color) haven’t come out quite right but I enjoyed doing this look! I wouldn’t have normally worn a white+pink combination of eye shadows but I loved the look Vimi Joshi created!
