FILM STAR RED LIP VAMP

Think back to the first time you ever witnessed a red lip in all its glory.
Whether it was Marylin’s cherry hue or Elizabeth Taylor’s true red the undeniable brightness of a technicolour lip means it instantly alters your outlook, keeping the rest of your make up minimal, use a lip brush to paint on a bold red to suit your skintone, and for an extra edge, define the cupid’s bow in points.

This look is both dressed up and dressed down. Dressed up for the glamour of the lip colour, dressed down as most other products can be simply applied with fingers to keep the look in a modern contrast.

Make up by Bae Sweet with quotes from YSL European Make Up Artist, Fred Letailleur.

STEP 1: NO MAKE UP MAKE UP

Nina prepped the skin with Top Secret’s Instant Moisture Glow to hydrate and illuminate. She then used a light layer of Touché Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation in B20 Ivory blending into the skin with her fingers to create a natural no-make-up look to the skin; allowing her freckles to show through.

STEP 2: EYE UP

Nina then dressed the eyes in a halo of neutral matte colour using Full Matte Shadow 10 Enigmatic Beige, dotted on both the upper and lower part of the lid blended with finger into an natural haze of colour.

Nina outlined the inner rim of the eye for added drama, using Dessin Du Regard in 2 Brown

She finished the eye with few layers of False Lash Effect Mascara The Curler in 1 Black to set the lashes into a glamorous curl. First using the bristle side of the brush then following with the side of the applicator to comb through the texture and set the curl into position.

STEP 3: ETHEREAL LUMINOSITY

Next, Nina used Touché Éclat Illuminating Pen in 02 Ivory Radiance under the eyes for gentle radiance & luminosity. She then concentrated application on the upper part of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, inner corner of the eyes, corner of the nose and outline of the lip to form the glossy highlight.

STEP 4: RETRO LIPS

The focus of the look is a statement lip outlined to perfection. The shape echoes Fifties starlets but the nude skin keeps the look fresh and contemporary.

Nina first hydrated and prepared the lips using Top Secret’s Lip Perfector to condition and help with the application.
She then applied Dessin Des Levres 11 Vermillon, accentuating the cupid’s bow to add extra sharpness to the look.

Finally, using a lip brush, she selected Rouge Pure Couture 50 Neon – you can easily swap out for Rouge Pure Couture 56 Orange Indie or for a touch of fantasy why not try to add extra dimension by layering Holographics Vernis À Lèvres 506 Orange under the cupid’s bow..
