Bright Lips - Slightly Megan Fox Inspired!

I went a bit crazy experimenting with make up! I hadn't done a bright lip in a while, and took Megan Fox's make up style as my inspiration.

I like an orange toned red and used a velvet matte lip pencil by Nars in 'Red Square' I usually reach for it in the summer but digged it out for this look! Makeup should have no boundaries! I topped it off with a coral lip gloss by Benefit in 'Fresh Squeeze' which has blue reflects in it, I added cool tones to contradict the warm but quite like the effect!



Here are my tips for this look:

  1. Make sure you have a matte face.
  2. Apply pale shimmery colours to the eyelid & define crease with a matte light brown e/s.
  3. Apply winged eyeliner concentrating on the outer corners only.
  4. Apply black eyeliner to the waterline.
  5. Apply black mascara.
  6. Apply a orange based red lipstick & top with a cool based lip gloss.
  7. Apply bronzer and highlight. I used Illamasqua's bronzing duo in 'Glint & Burnish'. (No blush!)

Are you ditching the smokey eye for the bright lip this time of year? I think I'm 50/50!

it's a very sultry & balanced look. loving it! but I don't think t would look good on many face types. it might look heavy on some with smaller features, but looks great on you. your face is a great canvas for just about any makeup look

I love this look, its so pretty!I have a problem wearing red lips, but I think coral gloss over the top makes it more wearable- thanks!

Muhsine said...

Thanks girls :)

@Analytic Approach to Style wow that's a lovely thing to say :) cok tesekkurler :) but, providing the flick, contour and lipline is in proportion to the face, im sure anybody can pull it off!

Muhsine- gorgeous as per usual. You look like a brunette marilyn monroe here. loving it!! happy holidays to you and your family!

Kell said...

im still slightly obsessed with the smokey eye & the light pink lip but you pull off the bright lips so well! i always feel wayyy overdone if i have bright lipstick on, so i tend to stay with light pink & nude colors.. i think your dark hair makes you the perfect bright lip candidate :)

have a great christmas, doll!
