The Bold Red Lip

Today I thought I would share a how-to on how I did my new favorite bold liner and red lip makeup look from yesterday's blog post, Stiletto Red.

For the eyes, I started with my MAC painterly paint pot as a based (not pictured), followed by MAC's eyeshadow in Shroom (an old favorite) all over the lid, and finally I topped off the whole eye look with Too Faced's Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black on my upper lash line (starting from my inner corner and sliding it across my lash line).

After I applied my everyday foundation (Bare Minerals Mineral Foundation in Fairly Light), I used the Bare Mineral's Ready Luminizer in The Love Affair on and above my cheek bones, and then applied MAC's Powder Blush in Fleet Fast to the apples of my cheeks.

To complete the look, I applied Too Faced's La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Stiletto Red.

Lately I've been really loving this simple, yet very classic look and think it's perfect for everyday, or an evening holiday look! Please let me know if you decide to give this look a try, and please leave a link if you post a picture so I can see it!

Have a great day, sweet friends!
