Classic Red lips look with Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’

Hi everyone!

I’ve been doing more of subtle look lately so here’s a bold lips look with what else but the classic choice for bold lips..RED!

Bold lips in everyday wear look good with subtle eye and face makeup. It also makes a good combination with softly smoked eyes for a runway or themed look. Pair with neutral colors in clothing and accessories for best effect or at the maximum match with 1  piece of your attire- say shoes  or belt or bag.

Read my bold red lips tutorial HERE.

Summary of this look –

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas, apply light foundation ( I have skipped foundation here) apply reddish cheek tint on the apples of the cheeks with a light hand. Set with compact or loose powder. Alternatively , if using a powder blush, apply compact first and then apply blush. For the eyes, lightly smudge brown eye pencil on lid close to upper lash line and kohl on water line. Apply suitable base on lips ( lip liner, concealer/foundation) and apply red lipstick using brush for precise application.

Spring/Summer look #6 : Quick look with Bourjois lip/cheek tint

Hi everyone!

This is a quick makeup look I did using Bourjois  lip/cheek tint or Bourjois Rouge Hi-tech as the product is named.

Lip/cheek tints or stains are gel or water based products that can be used on the cheeks as well as the lips for a natural looking stained or ‘just bitten’ effect and are a great alternative to blush or lipstick/gloss. They set really quickly so they need to be blended in to the skin really fast. On application and blending, they sink into the skin and the color generally deepens over the course of next 2-3 min due to the body heat and the stain sets into a long lasting matte finish.

For more tips on how to use lip/cheek tint, read this post by Tanveer of Addicted to Blush HERE.

FACE :

Foundations feel too heavy in day in the summers especially if you are likely to be out in the heat. I prefer skipping  the foundation in the day time and only using a bit of concealer under my eyes and sunscreen on face set well with compact.

Products used :

1. MAC Select moisture cover concealer NC 45.5

2. Bourjois Rouge hi-tech tint ’84 Rose pixel’

3. Lotus 3-in-1 matte sunscreen (not pictured)

4. Chambor silver shadow compact ‘RR2 Rose pale’

5. The Body Shop face and body brush (for compact)

Steps :

1. Apply a light  moisturizer on face and neck .

2. Apply concealer to the under eyes and sides of the nose, mouth to cover any pigmentation.

3. Apply the lip/cheek stain directly on the apples of the cheeks , blend with fingers  in dabbing and circular motions quickly before it sets.

4. Wait for 2-3 mins, than apply sunscreen over face and neck. I use Lotus-3-in-1 matte suncreen- it is very light, gets absorbed into the skin very fast to give a matte finish without leaving white cast on the face.

5. Lastly, apply compact or loose powder all over face and neck especially on the concealed parts to set the concealer.

EYES :

1. Bourjois kohl and contour liner ‘Brun expressif’

2. MAC Smolder

3. The Body shop line softening brush

4. Maybelline colossal volume mascara

Steps :

1. Apply brown liner on upper lash line and lightly smudge using softening brush.

2. Apply kajal /MAC Smolder on water line and smudge a little on the lower lash line with softening brush or third finger.

LIPS :

Apply lip stain to centre of lips and spread evenly all over the lips.
