The classic red lip is back for the autumn season! This time it’s a full, matte red lip.
Get the look:
* Before trying this look make sure that lips are well moisturised - chapped lips do not work well with matte lipstick!
* Start by lining the lip with a lip pencil - for this look match the colour of the pencil exactly to the shade of your lipstick rather than going for a darker shade. Use the liner to correct the shape of your lips to achieve a perfectly symmetrical shape. You can also take the liner a little above your natural lip line to give the illusion of fuller lips.
* Next colour in your lips with the lip pencil. This will give a greater depth of colour to the lipstick and help the colour to last for longer.
*Load up a lip brush with a matte red lipstick and apply a smooth, even coat to the lips, keeping within the shape created by the liner.
* Blot the lips using a tissue. You can also apply some translucent powder by using a cotton pad to gently dab over the lips. You should then be able to lightly touch your lips without any colour product coming off on your fingers.
* Apply another layer of lipstick for a bold red lip that will last well into the night!
To keep the look on trend, keep the rest of your make-up simple and minimal!
Some new beauty work from a great shoot I did a little while back. The main focus of the shoot was on getting some macro beauty shots but we also did some full face shots.
This make-up was quite a last minute idea that was shot right at the end of the day. We had done lots of stuff with bright colours throughout the shoot and wanted to do something darker and more dramatic in contrast, so I created this look featuring glossy black and silver eyes and lips.
