La Fille Dans Les Lèvres Rouges

(The girl in the red lips)

Lately I've really been trying to utilize more of my collection and get more use out of some products that have been sitting around untouched in my collection. It was kind of a chilly and very windy day yesterday, so I went with this simple look. It reminds me of something Parisian. I went out with my dad for lunch and he said I look like a little French girl, lmao, gee thanks dad.





USED:
NARS Smudgeproof e/s base
MAC Vanilla pigment (all over the lid)
MAC Soft Brown e/s (in the crease)
MAC Espresso e/s (in the outer corner/crease)
Annabelle e/s in Buff Naked (as highlight)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Rimmel Max Volume Flash mascara
Random lashes
Bonne Belle Eye Definer e/l in Glow
MAC Night Manoeuvres e/s (in brows)

MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC40
MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF35 in NW30
MAC Powder Blush in Harmony (to contour)
NYX Powder Blush in Angel

Annabelle l/l in Cherry
MAC l/s in Russian Red

No real close-ups of the eye make-up because it was relatively boring and simple. The focus was all on the lips.
The lashes I used where a pair that my sister had ordered online from eBay. They came in a box of like 10 other pairs. The lashes are nice, but you can see the lashband which annoyed me. But I wore my glasses so it wasn't that noticeable in real life, lol.

I feel like a bold lipstick, especially a red, can make me feel 100x more confident. I feel instantly sexier!

Also, I noticed someone had left a question on one of my posts here. So Andrea, here's the answer to your question:

I used a stiff flat shader brush to apply Peace all over my lid, and the MAC 217 brush to apply the crease colour. I also used that same brush to blend along with the Sephora Professional #29 blending brush. Also, under Peace e/s I used MAC's Shadestick in Cakeshop - which actually has a green tinge but it made the shadow more shimmery. Hope that helps.

If you guys have any questions or inquires or anything like that, you can always leave a comment with a way for me to get back to you, or you can e-mail me at arezu.azad@hotmail.com, or you can leave it on my formspring here. :)

Au Revior! ;)
