I’m not a fan of Pink Scorching candies (too spicy), however I do love me some matte crimson lipstick!
Yesterday’s Monday Ballot query about matte crimson lipstick impressed this make-up look with glowing pores and skin, softly outlined brows, lush lashes, pearly lids and a matte orangey crimson lip.
It’s superb how a lot heavy lifting a crimson lip can do, and equally superb how I appear to neglect this lesson time and time once more, LOL! After I put this crimson lipstick on yesterday (it’s MAC Fairly the Standout, by the way in which), as soon as once more I spotted how crimson lips can carry a lot of the make-up because it’s such a robust focus. One actually doesn’t want a lot to spherical out the look.
To distinction with the opaque matte lip, I went with a sheer, glowing base with low-level pearl (Rose Inc Pores and skin Improve in 80), with only a contact of concealer (Hourglass Retouching Fluid in Sand) on the components the place I needed extra protection — beneath my eyes and on my higher lip, and oh, aspect observe, rattling that pigment mustache.
I set the areas with concealer with a tiny contact of powder by loading a small face brush with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Pure in Medium Golden. I tapped a lot of the powder off earlier than calmly dabbing the comb head on my face.
I additionally needed to play with texture, so I blended a cream blush (Chanel Les Beiges No. 25) on my cheeks, and dabbed a pearly liquid highlighter (MAC Strobe Cream) on my cheekbones and lids.
To spherical out the look, I went with softly stuffed in brows and separated, lengthy, lush lashes to maintain it contemporary and abstract.
I feel this look may be pretty with a shiny coral lipgloss or lip tint, too!
