How To Create a Vintage Vamp Lip
I recently attended a Mac Techniques workshop for AW13 trends and Michelle Lee showed us a look that included the lip pencil Night Moth (love it) and a dark berry lip I used Hang Up its a Creamsheen so it glides on beautifully and hydrates the lips. So here are some pictures and a step by step guide to creating the Vintage Vamp Berry Lip:
1) Hydrate your lips first this is so important as you don’t want your lips to dry out. I am using my trusty carmex its the best for me.
2) Line your lips with the lip pencil this ensures that you create the perfect lip and shape and also stops the lipstick from bleeding. I am using Mac lip pencil Nightmoth.3) Next apply the lipstick its easy to apply as you have already traced the shape of your lips with the pencil. Using the lipstick straight onto the lips gives a real natural look rather than applying with a lip brush.
4) Here is the finished look:
On the rest of my face I massaged in Bourjois healthy Mix all over my face to get that dewy look, I concealed using Mac Select Moisture Cover in NC30 under my eyes and around my nose and any blemishes. For contouring I used my favourite Hoola By Benefit and on my cheeks I applied the new Michael Kors Sexy Flush (launches mid Dec) and for my lashes I applied my new favourite mascara from Clarins Be Long Mascara in no 1 Intense Black (launches 24th March 14).
