Quick tip for the lip..

(Lipstick-MAC Rebel)

BIG apologies for a lack of blog post as of late and even BIGGER apologies for this lame blog.. but I'm swamped with uni deadlines so haven't had time to get the camera out and play around so I thought I'd just do a wee blog on my most recent make-up preferences...(more apologies for the poor quality macbook photos!!)

I've always been partial to a bright lip... but in my opinion the biggest mistake people can make is a heavy eye and bight lip combo... not only do I find it all too much, I don't like the attention being taken a way from a strong lip!

So my advice.... use a cream base such as painterly from MAC all over the eye then just work a mid brown/slightly orangey brown shade into the crease.. here I've used cork and texture - MAC of course, then just a little bit of liquid liner to frame the eye... for the bright lip there is nothing more essential than a lip liner.. i used the liner to go around the edge of the lip I then filled in my lips and pressed rebel lipstick over the top and not once to did i have to reapply the whole night! 

P.S Being a redhead definitely makes you more fiery!! ;)
