This is my version of wine lip look. If you see runways and most beauty blogs, stained wine lips are on most beauty blogs, It doesn’t work at all for us who live in AZ or rather I’ll say that personally I do not prefer dry chapped lips with deeper lip colors. After some searching I went for a more moisturizing BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss OMG in Wine color.The basic idea of this look is high arch eye brow, thick eye liner and and deep wine lip and minimal blush.
1. I would suggest putting eye make up first before you do face base as it fall and gives you raccoon eyes. Prime your eyes with Painterly Paint Pot from MAC to neutralize your eye lid color. MAC 217 Brush.
Dupe: Recess Benefit Eyeshadow – Base
Create a high arch by filling in with Brow color. I used Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Mahogany. You can even use dark eye shadow.
Tame your brows with brow wax. I used MAC Brow finisher.
I am creating a Contour in crease with Cocoa (Crease Color) from Bobbi Brown – see post for shades. MAC 224 Tapered Blending brush.
Highlight inner corner of your eyes with a shimmering shade like MAC Shroom – Soft beige with shimmer. MAC 219 Pencil Brush.
Drugstore Dupe: Champagne CoverGirl Eye shadow
Use 242 MAC shader brush to pack deeper eye shadow on lid.
Winged out eyeliner look with Inglot gel eye liner in #74
Curl your Lashes and put mascara on. Mascara – Dior Show
Now, I am correcting my skin tone, it goes underneath my foundation. Correct and conceal the darkness under eyes, and I also use my corrector on my laugh lines to lighten them so they are not as highlighted on my face. For medium skin tones peach shades are best for correcting any skin variations. I used tinted eye brightener from Bobbi Brown. I would highly suggest this product if you do not want to invest in any other makeup products.
I used MAC 188 small duo fiber face brush to blend corrector and my foundation from Makeup for Ever: N153, or you can use MAC 40 or 42.
Contour your cheeks and use blush with very light hand. I used Bobbi Brown Natural bronzing powder and Dollymix MAC blush.
Finally, this look is complete with BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss OMG. Also sprayed Fix Plus from MAC to set my makeup.
I will be posting my complete look and outfit in next post. until then here is a complete list of dupes to look for at Temptalia Blog.
