May I first apologize for no posts for 3 weeks! I have not died, Ive just been super busy, but atleast I have this week free so I can post more, yay!
Oh my gosh, my friend introduced me to this show ‘Reign’ this week. Its SOO good. Its about Mary queen of Scots and Francis and it’s loosely based on history in the 1500’s. AND, only half the first season is out so you’re not that far behind if you want to watch it,
because I definately did not watch all 11 episodes yesterday. Im still heartbroken from the show, I just had to get it out.
Anyway today is a post about Orange lips. Im much more of a neutral girl when it comes to lips, I tend to play up my eyes as you’ve probably observed. But I really want to start wearing brighter lip colours this year, its a makeup resolution of mine I suppose. Ive had this product for over a year, but I never gave it the love it deserves. Its the MUA Power Pout colour intense tint & balm in Justify. What a mouthful…
Here’s what it looks like:
Its quite sheer, but the colour can be worked up. As I have quite pinks naturally it turns more coral on me, but the less pink you have, the orange the lip colour will be. They have quite good lasting power. Think of it as the MUA version of the Revlon kissable balm stains. Less pigmented but almost a third of the price!
As I dont do it often, I was stunted with what sort of eye makeup to go with it. I ended up putting a light champagne on the lid, brown gel liner, black mascara and false lashes (Of course!).
Here’s the look:
Im not gonna lie, I still find it hilarious how pale my camera makes me. IM NOT EVEN THAT WHITE.
I think one of the tricks for orange lips, is making sure you have some sort of blush on as otherwise the orange can wash you’re skin colour out.
Despite my camera doing exactly that. I used coral by sleek on my cheeks and minimal bronzer.
I know todays post was quite brief, but I feel like my posts have LITERALLY just been tutorials, so I wanted to add something slightly different into the mix. Im thinking about doing a favourites post next?
