Posts Tagged ‘MAC Russian Red’
In the second installment of my holiday inspired series, I decided to do a sultry red lip with delicate gold flecks. I figure if there’s any time to wear red lips, it’s the holidays – plus the gold gives just the right amount of festive flare. Not to be confused with pieces of flare, or course. Although, when you consider how much bling I wear on a daily basis, I’m pretty much a giant, walking piece of flare.
In any case, check out the tutorial below to get these luscious holiday lips, then read on after the jump for a list of the products I used as well as some less expensive duplicates =)
Revlon Photoready Concealer (as a base)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lipliner – Gash (Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Red is a good, less expensive dupe for this one)
NYX Lipliner – Currant (Outline)
MAC Lipstick – Russian Red (L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Ravishing Red is also a great color and it costs half as much)
Philosophy Lipgloss - Candy Cane (any clear gloss will due, this just happens to be what I had on hand)
LORAC 3D Liquid Lustre (you can pretty much use any gold pigment, eye shadow or glitter as long as it’s cosmetic grade)
Over the past year a bunch of “Chola Look” tutorials have hit YouTube, and one of my lovely readers asked me to do one, since the other ones aren’t “authentic.” Now by authentic, I mean they’re more Hollywood Chola (a la Gwen Stefanie and Fergie) rather than what an actual chola would wear.
So I basically did a tutorial based on how I wore my make-up in high school, back when I THOUGHT I was a chola. I say thought becuase I doubt real hardcore cholas washed their make-up off before their parents came to pick them up from private school. Lulz.
I did the tutorial tonight, so here are a few stills until I can figure out how to work this damn video editing equipment. Why am I doing that, you ask? Cuz I finally got a real video camera…woo hoo!
