First FOTD

If I haven't made it clear enough about how much I love the look of red lips, allow me to further elaborate. My favorite thing about red lips and black winged liner is the fact that this look can range from "wide-eyed innocence" to "sex kitten". You can intensify the red on the lips, or wing the liner out just a bit more, or you can play up your cheeks a bit to a girly flush...but not too much, considering the lips take center stage with this look.

Inspiration for this look comes from 50's hollywood icons (such as Rita Hayworth), and from the sexiest animated character ever (Jessica Rabbit).

Products Used:

Maybelline Matte Mousse foundation in "Light 2"
MAC powder blush in "Dollymix"
Stila eyeshadow in "Kitten" (who knew that a product that comes in the form of an eyeshadow would turn out to be a great cheek highlighter?)

MAC Fluidline eyeliner in "Blacktrack" on top lid only
Dior "Diorshow" mascara

EyesLipsFace lipliner in "Bark" as a base (only $1.00! Perfect for beauty on a budget!)
MAC Matte lipstick in "Russian Red"
NARS lipgloss in "Bloodwork"

The result:
