I really love the look of black eye liner and red lips, it is so classic and simple yet affective and brilliant for day to night style.
Firstly I used Urban Decay primer for this look, I then used the MAC stupid fluid in NC20 foundation. I then use the same method as in my other posts for contouring, by using the NC20 Mac concealer and the NC40 under my cheek bones and the edge of my forehead.
I then use the MAC gel eyebrow liquid and a slanted brush to complete my eyebrows. To get my eyebrows into the defined shape I like I use the small slanted brush and firstly draw a line at the bottom of the brow from the centre outwards. This is a guideline on how to fill out the rest of the colour. I then turn the brush side ways so it is thicker and in a small brushing motion I gently apply more product to the rest of the brow, making sure I don’t press too hard to make them too dark. I tend to use less product in the inner end of the brow to try and keep them looking natural.
I then use the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 to colour the eyelid in. I use the colour foxy as a base colour, then I use the colour Tease in the areas of my eye to give it a darker shadow, I then use the colour Snakebite in the centre of the eyelid to add some shimmer.
I then move on to create the black flick. At the moment I am using the L’Oreal eye liner pen. To create this I start from where I want the edge of the flick to be, for this to look the best it can I line the pen up with the edge of my eyebrow and draw inwards towards the centre of the eye. I then use the pen to colour the centre of the liner to make it darker.
I then apply some false eyelashes. These are really subtle eyelashes as I do not want this look to be too dramatic. I put the eyelash glue on the line of the eyelashes and leave for about 30 seconds, I find that eyelashes stick better if they have had a chance for the glue to get sticky first. I then stick the eyelashes to the eyelid just above my eyelash line and hold on fro approximately 30 seconds to get them to stick in place.
I then line my lips with the Mac lip liner in High energy, for this look I have kept the liner on my lips and filled them in completely so it will keep the lipstick lasting longer. I then cover the lips in the Mac lipstick in colour Lady Danger. This colour is a really bright red but with a hint of coral and pink incorporated. I love this colour for all year round and it is also great for special occasions and parties.
I hope you like my look, leave your comments and I will be posting more shortly.
