I wanted to do something darker than usual so I opted for a brown smoky eye, a light hand of reddish pink blush and the darkest lipstick I own.
My lighting situation does not do the look justice, you have been forewarned. I burnt the bulb I normally use for lighting. I also had to go back in with concealer because I didn’t fully cover my spots. Oh and to top it all off; I ended up re-doing my lipstick with a dark liner because the color went on a bit patchy. Let’s pretend I’m following the wine stained lips trend shall we? haha
Excuses aside, I still wanted to share this look because it’s an attempt at breaking a makeup rule about wearing bold lips.
