For a while now, ive being dying to do a red lip look, but i always had problem with what kind of make up should i wear with red lips. smokey eye? cat eye? very minimal? So i was googling pictures for inspirations, until i came across this picture:
For those of you who don't know who she is, her name is Fan BingBing, she is a Chinese actress. So ya I came across this picture of hers, that she is wearing red lipstick, with minimal eyeshadow, but thick and dark black eyeliner, and i though it looks nice on her, so I decide to try it out.
So here is the final look:
I thought i did an Okay job, i thicken my brows a bit, i did a very obvious cat eye using a gel-liner. Barely there cheeks, with dark brown and Dark Maroon eyeshadow the brown has a Satin finish, but the Maroon is matte finish. I didn't use lip-gloss, since i dont think it is necessary in this case, because the lipstick has enough shine imo.
here is the close up of the eye:

So ya i thought this look is actually wearable if you wanna dress up a bit during your daily make up routine...i mean if you are a minimalist, you can wear your daily browns with a thicker brow and a thicker cat eye-ish eyeliner, with red lips. now for daily wear, id recommend a softer and more sheer red than a intense one that way you are drawing attention to your lips, without being overly dramatic.
here are the products that i used:
Maybelline Gel Liner in Black
E.L.F one Dollar Quads in Matt Mauve
Mascara By Maybelline Colossal Volume express in Black (not Shown)
Sephora Brand Nano liner in White( not shown, but its matte no shimmer)
MAC Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon
Annabelle Lipliner in Cherry
NYC Lipstick in Retro Red

So tell me what you Guys think my look? do you like it??? is there anything i should've done better??? let me know~~
Hehe More camwhoring~~~lol

In the mean time i wish everyone a good week

As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.

I think Fan BingBing is gorgeous! Especially in the Chinese drama 小鱼儿与花无缺 (Proud Twins/Handsome Siblings). Very cute drama.

The red lips suit you very well. I need to try this look one day, once I buy my own lipstick, hehe.

Mara said...

Oh my, Fan BingBing is gorgeous. You pulled off the red lips well. At first I thought you were wearing Mac's Cyndi lipstick. You should try NYC's lipstick in "sheer red" instead. It's alittle more pigmentated. :)

suki pooki said...

I think this is a great look! Cat eyes with red lipstick is really striking!!! =D I love the bold red too =) Definitely gives you a mysterious type of aura!

Keri said...
