Today I was playing around with dark red lipstick (you may remember my quest to find it last year) and did a couple of eye looks to match my now-trendy oxblood lipstick.
The lips and cheeks are the same in both looks, the lipstick is a mix of NYX Round Lipstick ($2.99) in Decadent and Raisin and I’m wearing NYX Powder Blush in Desert Rose ($5.99) along the outer cheek and temple and TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer ($24) both as a facial highlighter and as an eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eye.
The first look is more day-appropriate and accessible. I patted Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow ($14) in Mai Tai (discontinued, but The 70’s is a close match) all over and lined the outer half of the upper and lower lashline with the plummy shade of NYX’s Trio Eyeshadow in Lake Moss ($7) and added a coat of Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara ($20).
Look how angsty I am!
I drew a short line of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Gunmetal ($19) between the upper and lower line to smoke out the two-line look, although you could add any color for contrast (or leave the space empty).
