I’m not a fan of Crimson Sizzling candies (too spicy), however I do love me some matte pink lipstick!
Yesterday’s Monday Ballot query about matte pink lipstick impressed this make-up look with glowing pores and skin, softly outlined brows, lush lashes, pearly lids and a matte orangey pink lip.
It’s wonderful how a lot heavy lifting a pink lip can do, and equally wonderful how I appear to overlook this lesson time and time once more, LOL! Once I put this pink lipstick on yesterday (it’s MAC Fairly the Standout, by the best way), as soon as once more I spotted how pink lips can carry a lot of the make-up because it’s such a powerful point of interest. One actually doesn’t want a lot to spherical out the look.
To distinction with the opaque matte lip, I went with a sheer, glowing base with low-level pearl (Rose Inc Pores and skin Improve in 80), with only a contact of concealer (Hourglass Retouching Fluid in Sand) on the elements the place I needed extra protection — beneath my eyes and on my higher lip, and oh, facet be aware, rattling that pigment mustache.
I set the areas with concealer with a tiny contact of powder by loading a small face brush with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Pure in Medium Golden. I tapped a lot of the powder off earlier than calmly dabbing the comb head on my face.
I additionally needed to play with texture, so I blended a cream blush (Chanel Les Beiges No. 25) on my cheeks, and dabbed a pearly liquid highlighter (MAC Strobe Cream) on my cheekbones and lids.
To spherical out the look, I went with softly stuffed in brows and separated, lengthy, lush lashes to maintain it contemporary and abstract.
I feel this look may be pretty with a shiny coral lipgloss or lip tint, too!
