Today is the 11th day of the Colour Prevails 12 Days of Colour and I'm so excited to share my look! Colour Prevails is known for their multi-tasking products, long wearing lippies and gorgeous shadows. I wanted to show off some color, but I wanted the application to be really, really easy.
It's Christmas Eve, for elves' sake! The time for complicated pinterest projects has passed. On the 11th Day of Colour, it's time for a lip hack. For my look, I opted to do a golden, metallic eye paired with a bright red lip.
To make my lip really pop, I added a bit of Colour Prevails Eye Shimmer Powder in Copper to the center of my lip, after I perfected by Classic Red lipstick base. It's the easiest way to create an ombre lip without a lip brush and a steady hand. Just tap a bit of the powder out onto a clean surface, dab your ring finger into the powder and lightly touch the center of your lower lip. Gently put your lips together and boom. A gorgeous, sparkling, metallic ombre that's really easy to recreate, even after the Feast of the Seven Fish.
It may be too late to wear this sexy lip on Christmas Eve, so pin this for NYE. Or any time you want to impress your friends with your ombre lip skills.
For my eyes, I used the Social Butterfly palette. I applied Bubbly under the brows. I applied Tipsy to the lid and Gala in the crease. I used Ball Gown as a winged liner, along with the Charcoal Liquid Liner along the lash line. Easy and pretty--two of my favorite things!
