How brilliant to have made it to 200 posts! I never imagined when I started this blog that a) I'd still be blogging a year and a half later and b) I'd end up working with make-up for a living. It makes me quite happy when I realise that's the truth!
I am wearing Patina eyeshadow with Charcoal Brown through my socket and eyebrows, but... more importantly, what am I wearing on my lips? Recently on twitter, Pablo R (senior artist for MAC in Europe) suggested using Cherry lip liner with Viva Glam Nicki. Well, I don't yet own Viva Glam Nicki (and it's sold out at my counter as I type) but I fancied giving a similar combination a go and here's what I came up with...
I primed the lips with Prep+Prime lip, filled in the edges with Cherry lip liner and filled the entire lip with Impassioned amplified cream lipstick all over. It gives the lips a stronger edge, but it's not noticeably red on pink or harsh. I also highlighted my Cupid's bow with Vanilla pigment.
What do you think?
PS I'm quite excited as on Wednesday and Thursday Pablo will be at my counter. Hopefully I'll get to pick his brains! I might wear this combination.
