Hello Gorgies!!! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2016 and this my first post after the website revamp, although there is a tad bit more to go. I decided to share my new years eve look and how you can rock Red Lips on more than one occasion. New Years Eve for most is all about donning your most gorgeous attire it can be casual/semi-casual or formal, getting the right hairdo to go with the attire and most importantly wearing the right makeup. Well, essentially there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ really as you can have your own way of achieving the look that you desire. But, I can assure you, no matter what.. A red lip is a red lip and nothing beats that, hands down!! You can wear a red lip at any time of the year to pull your look together but wearing it during the festive season seems just right!! I totally think the festive season is not over yet keeping in mind Valentines is just next month, and the first colour that would strike your mind is Red!!
If your on the lookout for a stunning red lip hue for Valentines then you might want to consider reading my review on the Nars Velvet Lip Pencil here. It is absolutely gorgeous and I cannot emphasize enough on how beautiful the colour really is.
Heading over to the technique:
In order to achieve the perfect red lip, here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step1: Exfoliate the lip and there are various ways to do it, depends what works for you. If your lips are dry like mine then you might want to use vaseline on your lips just before you start the process of exfoliation. Leave the vaseline on for 5-10mins and the scrub your lips with half a tea spoon of sugar for 2mins and wipe it off with a soft damp towel or a wet tissue and then pad it dry to get rid of any residue. Make sure your lips aren’t too moist before applying the lippie.
Step 2: Line the lips with a matching colour to your red lipstick to avoid rubbing off uneven application and to perfect the shape of your lips. After applying the liner smack the lips together a couple of times to get rid of the harsh outline and blend it in towards the inner corner.
Step 3: Go ahead and fill in the beautifully drawn outline, to flaunt the most gorgeous red lips and get ready for all the attention that follows thereafter.
The Nars velvet matte lip pencil can be found at Sephora which is my go to store for my day to day makeup needs… I think I live there… most of u who are addicted to makeup will know what I mean?!! I wonder what would I do without them!! For a drugstore alternative I would highly recommend L’oreal Collection Exclusive Pure Red by JLO that can be found easily at Boots Pharmacy.
Hope this helps you achieve your perfect festive Red Lips! I would love to hear from you.
Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year 2016 once again may this one be makeuplicious and incredible in every way!!
