Welcome back.. this week I've done a red lip" how to" for you. Many women keep telling me they love red lips but are afraid to do them as they have no clue how to. They aren't that hard to do really , I think the most important thing is to get the lip line straight, blend in the lip pencil so that it's not obvious and make it stay in place so there is no embarassing bleeding... all of which I cover in the videos. Also good to remember too , unless you're going for the Robert Palmer look , keep the eyes simple so that not everything is fighting for attention on your face!
The lipstick I have used is my favourite Chanel " Rouge Allure Velvet 39" and the other ones that I mention are:
Ellis Faas L101
Nars "Red Lizard"
Nars " Red Square"
You can use a light loose or pressed powder to dust the lips if you don't have the Mac Prep & Prime... just dust lightly so there is no residue.
I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
