I seem to have caught the dark lip bug, ’cause right now I love wearing dark lips. ‘Maybe it’s because it’s Fall. Last week, while searching for an outfit for my friend’s b’day party, I wanted to wear a brand new lip color. I was highly disappointed that I couldn’t get ANY lipsticks from MAC’s Marilyn Monroe collection, so I went to the NARS boutique in the city. I did not leave unsatisfied. I wanted to go with a dark lip color, since my dress is purple…so I went with their pure matte lipstick in Volga. It’s a dark plum color, leaning towards the reddish side. Here’s how it looked on me for last Saturday night’s event:
I loved the lip color so much, that I wanted to wear it again today…so I did just that! I wanted to darken it even more, so I used MAC Nightmoth lip liner. Love it!
On my eyes, I’m wearing Ben Nye’s Cork e/s on the browbone, UD Blitz e/s on 2/3rd of the lid, Ben Nye Mink Stole e/s on the outer third, MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC42 as a brow highlight. For the lower lash line, I’m wearing UD Blitz e/s on 2/3rd of the lower lash line and Ben Nye Black Brown e/s on the outer third. I used MAC Blacktrack Fluidline on the upper lash line, MAC Feline Kohlpower on the waterline and L’Oreal Telescopic mascara.
On my cheeks (and perimeter of my face), I’m wearing Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 05 and the Light Bronzing Powder in 03 on my forhead, nose and chin.
