I’m back! Miss me?
Today I thought I’d start off my talking through one of my recent makeup looks!
I’ve been trying lots of different looks recently, mostly because all of my looks seem to include a red lip, and basic eyes. Now I want to leave that part of my comfort zone and try new things. I’m not thinking smokey eye just yet, but a new lip colour now and again won’t go a miss.
So my base is the same as always.
Younique Foundation in Scarlet
Collection Concealer in the lightest shade (I can’t read what shade it is anymore, its completely worn off!)
Younique Powder in Scarlet
Younique Brow Pencil in Brunette & the brow gel in the same shade.
My eye look is;
Younique eye shadow palette in number 3.
I used the highlight shade (Smitten), a purple shade (Flippant) and in the crease I used a nude brown (Determined).
Younique 3D Mascara (two layers)
Now on my lips!
So yes it is a pinky shade but to me, this was the closest I’ve ever been to a nude lip.
Its the NYX Liquid Suede in “Tea and Cookies”. I actually got this as a Christmas gift and this is the first time I’ve used it. Well, other than swatching it on Christmas day!
It took two layers of this before it felt soft, and not like it was cracking on my lips.
With just one layer, it did feel very dry, but it did feel better once the second layer was on.
Once it was on, I was able to eat, drink and eat some more, and it stayed put quite well! I tend to prefer products that don’t come off, mostly because I like knowing I can eat without issue! So this one will stay in my makeup bag!
Next time, I’m planning to go out of my comfort zone with another lip colour! I actually have one in mind, Younique Splash Liquid Lipstick in Superstitious! It’s bright blue!
What new colours have you been trying recently?
