Today I have something a little different to show. While I love bright lips, I've never really played with dark, edgy lip color before. However I fell in love with MAC Yung Rapunxel (Fashion's Night Out exclusive) and set out on a quest. I didn't have the patience to deal with the crowds so I set out for a dupe or at least something similar. When I found Rimmel London Kate Moss 04 at the pharmacy, I was thrilled!
I used my NAKED palette for this look.
- Sidecar on the lid
- Smog in the crease, followed by Gunmetal
- lined both lids with Gunmetal as well
I also used High Beam on the brow bone as well.
Kate Moss 04 is smoky, vampy purple just like Yung Rapunxel. The formula does take a little effort because it doesn't glide on evenly. What worked for me was to fill in my lips with nude lip liner, giving the lipstick something to cling too. I then cleaned up with a Q-tip and used concealer to define the shape of my lips.
I wanted my skin to look flawless so I used:
- Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB cream
- Ben Nye Banana Powder
- Benefit Erase Paste 02
Since this is a more dramatic look, I decided to forego the blush, choosing to contour and highlight my skin. Please see Fun with Contouring for more info on how I contour. Also I filled in my brows slightly thicker than they usually are (I love how strong brows look!)
