Since the holiday season is upon us when everyone wants to look their best at parties, for pictures, etc., I thought this quick little trick that instantly makes your lips look fuller and more plump when applying lipstick could help with that!
I love Bond movies and one of the things I like the most about Bond Movies is to see the Bond Girls’ looks! In fact, seeing what the Bond Girls are wearing and how they do their hair and makeup is sometimes my favourite parts of the movies! … I saw Skyfall about two weeks ago on the opening night here in South Africa and actress Bérénice Marlohe who played the Bond Girl ‘Severine’ definitely did NOT disappoint! I was in complete ‘awe’ of how absolutely stunning she looked! … Everything from her gorgeous gown to her hair and of course … her makeup! She had an absolutely gorgeous sultry version of a ‘reverse smoky eye’ which is a huge makeup trend for 2013 and is a perfect look for holiday parties! So of course I had to try it! This is how I got the look.
One of the major makeup trends for Spring/Summer 2013 that is actually very wearable right now and is perfect for the holiday season is wearing a pop of bright matte colour on the lips … whether it’s hot pink, coral or red! I personally love this trend and find it to be one of the easiest, prettiest makeup looks that when worn with the right eye makeup can be worn during the day and at night! … So I thought I would show you guys how I wear a bright lip colour, taking it from a day look to an evening look.
I love how contouring can instantly lift your cheek bones, transform your jawline, highlight your eyes and give you a radiant glow! … When you contour correctly it can instantly transform your face without being obvious that you are wearing makeup to do so. However, I’ve seen a lot of contouring tutorials and ‘how to’s’ out there that are great for a night out but can be a little long and complicated, and thus not ideal for everyday when you only have a few minutes to rush out the door. Since, I’ve never been a fan of complicated makeup application … I like to keep things as simple as possible, I thought I would show you guys how I quickly and easily do my everyday contouring. On a daily basis I usually just use this trick which literally takes less than a minute to do, and with some mascara and lip gloss I’m good to go … looking fresh and radiant!
In my previous post I listed a bunch of cool eye makeup looks from the New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 shows and among those looks there was this look from the Marc Jacobs show that I thought was really cool inspiration for a weekend evening look! So I decided to use it for just that!
