Check out my first original video “Curiosity” from my upcoming album Shades of Red!

makeupbox:

Sparkly Charcoal Cat Eye Liner, Soft Matte Grey Lids, and Lacquered Deep Red Lips

Strong eyes, strong lips.

Yes you can.

Here’s one where you can play around with different textures so they all stand out. 

There aren’t many products for the eyes cheeks and lips. It’s more the application that you need to get right. Feel free to substitute with other products or use regular gel liner!

Products

Shu Uemura Lightbulb Foundation 564 (I’m having a moment with this as my skin’s been a bit drier these 2 weeks)

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage SC-2 (you want to hide any marks and scars)

ClearLast High Cover Face Powder (to get a completely even and perfected complexion for this look, tap on a little powder foundation for extra coverage if you need; if not use a translucent powder)

Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Brow Pencil in Seal Brown

Nars Namibia matte shadow on lid

Urban Decay Smokeout in socket (Vice 2)

Lancôme Hypnôse cream shadow in Saphir Noir as liner (not every cream shadow works as gel liner but this formula does!)

Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Blackest Black

Shu Uemura Blush in P red 14 (looks for any pink blush with a lot of red in it)

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in RD607 - this is almost like an opaque lacquer version of MAC Viva Glam I. If you have that you can just wear it and top with a little clear gloss.
