Friday's Face #31: Lashy Eyes and Berry Lips

Today's issue is all about bringing fall sexyback (err, what did I just say?).  Never mind, you get what I'm saying. Berry lips are all over the runway for the Autumn '14 and so does flawless, bare skin sans blush or bronzer and lashy peepers. Even though we don't experince fall or autumn per se, but sometimes it is nice to change up your makeup every now and then. Plus, it is a great way to discover a new spectrum of colours and experiment with it.
I know, it's probably shocking to see me in this makeup but I am all over it. It is so easy to do and perfect for fall because day time is too short in fall that nobody's got time to think about makeup. I could still remember that in Fall/Winter, my sole worry was how to survive the cold. So, let's start on how I achieve the whole look:
1. Base: After serum and day cream I spritzed my face with Victoria's Secret  Make It Last Prime and Set Makeup Spray as a primer. Then, for a smooth velvety base I used my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in B30 and I applied with clean fingers. Then, I concealed my under eyes and blemishes with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (no surprise there). To set everything I dusted Chanel Poudre Universal Libre all over my face not forgetting the under eye area. Finally, to finish the base, I dusted the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light all over my face.
2. Eyes: I groomed my brows to look slightly arched with Catrice Eyebrow Stylist in Date With Ashton. Then, for a subtle definition on the eyes, I took Essence Eyshadow (LE) in 01 So Hot, Donut which is a really unique tan shade to the crease of my eyelids. You can barely see it, but it's there. I then use my Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer in Black to tight line and my Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner in 015 Pure Natural to my waterline for a subtle doe-eyed effect. Finally, for more drama, I curled my eyelashes with Tweezerman Eyelash curler and a generous coat of Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Extravaganza mascara.

3. Lips: Wow, are we almost done? I love how bold lips can dree up a look just on its own. I chose Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 120 Cutting Edge blotting and reapplying to get a diffused and uniform coverage on the lips. The lipstick is semi matte so it does not dry out the lips. The colour is so opaque and full coverage but you can also sheer it down and wear it like a berry stained lips. It is a great mixture pink and dark berry in it which is forgving for a bold lip beginner.
That's today's look done!! How do you like the look?
