This was a look I wore last weekend, super, duper simple. I normally wouldn’t have even bothered with colored liner, but I really wanted to try out my Guerlain Lagun Bleu khol, since I haven’t had a chance to yet.

What’s your super duper simple look?

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Guerlain Lagun Bleu khol (teal-blue), Guerlain Bleu Cerise mascara (dark blue)
  • Cheeks: Margin blush (dirty coral), Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer (bronzy highlighter)
  • Lips: Sunsational lipstick (sheer gold-peach), Gold Rebel lipglass (sheer gold-peach)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Sunsational = Bronzer Shimmer + Tanarama; Gold Rebel = Love Nectar

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Lagun Bleu on lower lash line, and then apply Guerlain Bleu Cerise mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Margin blush using the 129, then highlight with Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer with the 188. Apply Sunsational lipstick to lips, and then top with Gold Rebel lipglass for color and shine.

Purple Rite Lipstick

MAC Style Warrior Lip Swatches! :)

Here’s a little run down about how they apply/opacity on the shades first…

  • Purple Rite is semi-sheer, provides decent color to lips. Frosty finish.
  • Sunsational is a sheer, shimmery peachy-gold. It’s not designed to give you a lot of color.
  • Tribalist is a creamy, opaque color. Very deep and better to apply via a lip brush (I did not, as I do these as fast as humanly possible).
  • Brave New Bronze is a creamy, opaque color. Will probably lean peach or pink, depending on your skin tones, but it is more peach than pink.
  • Liberated is sheer, gold shimmer.
  • Fierce & Fabulous is semi-sheer, providing lips with noticeable color.
  • Gold Rebel is sheer, peachy-gold shimmer. Like Liberated, but more peach/orange.
  • Style Warrior is a semi-sheer, providing lips with noticeable color/darkening. Try it over Tribalist or any red lipstick to see a cool effect. Really — it’s more wearable than you think.

Now, onto the lip swatches! Continue reading →
