This post is a pretty makeup look using Mii Cosmetics plus a little giveaway for one of my readers. Its a brand that really is for the every day woman that likes simple pretty makeup that is super easy to apply. The products are great quality and I love that nothing is complicated. So many women struggle with what to do with their eyes with palettes that have so many shades. Mii keeps it simple and thats what I love.
The gorgeous French brand has introduced the new SVR Densitium Anti-Age range for more mature skin. SVR’s motto promises “beautiful skin” and thats exactly what it does. Now I like to think that I am still really young even though I am now 42 and don’t really want to accept I am actually getting older!!! I have been testing out the serum, eye cream and moisturiser and my skin is feeling fab. I get a beautiful glow from the serum and moisturiser. Plus my under eye area doesn’t have as many fine lines and is a lot smoother.
Looking to create that perfect red lip? Red lips are always going to be on trend its just a fact. Its a timeless classic look that just brings the whole face to life. There are of course lots of different shades to choose from depending on your skin tone. But pretty much most people can pull it off. Not only are there different shades but textures too which also determine how the lip will turn out. Sheer or bold? Blurred or just perfect? In this shoot I went with a perfect red lip that’s perfect for a party night out paired with gold eyes.
Now to create the perfect red lip you need your lip brush, liner and a good red lippie. Remember to make sure lips are hydrated before you apply your lipstick. I used of course a Chanel lipstick for this look the Rouge Allure Velvet no2. I am definitely a more matt type nof girl plus it looks more modern and lasts so you don’t have to reapply as much.
Line lips with a liner this will stop it from bleeding and creates the definition of the lips. Apply the liner onto the edges of the lips not just to the lip itself this will create the illusion of fuller lips. Then take your lip brush if you are doing someone elses makeup and apply all over. You can go back with the liner once you have applied the lipstick to define again. To really get that lippie to last blot the lips with tissue paper and apply the lipstick again. You can do this 2/3 times this ensures longevity.
A good lip brush is definitely required here. There are different shapes to choose from but one that has flat edges or slightly angled that fits to the shape of the lip will really work here. Alternatively apply the lipstick straight onto the lips and then use the brush to fill in the edges.
Here are some of the red lip trends for SS18 from perfect to imperfect:
