FOTD: Red For Strength!
Red represents energy, speed, strength and instinct over intellect – so as I didn’t sleep much: good coffee, red eyes and red lips today!
Double up on that power boost!
But yeah back to bare face first!
A first here would be to get rid of any dark patches present on my morning face, else the red will emphasize all that goodness.
Made sure to apply my heaviest concealer on the outer corner of my eyes and a natural pink flush on the cheeks to you know – not look sick.
Then you know I need my crazy brows…
Honeybee Gardens Geisha powder foundation under my brows and on the inner corner as a highlight.
Sugarpill! Love + went all over the lid, blended up and in toward the nose
Some burnt copper from the Sleek Sunset Palette on the outer corner and into the crease for more definition.
Lined my waterlines and top lashline with gel liner, then blended out the top with black and the bottom with that gold right there!
Going a little vampy with Stargazer’s Blood Red and a dark burgundy lip liner underneath, smudged the edges a little too for a more casual (?) effect..
Aaand when in doubt a nude gloss works too.
I kinda got a kick out of the the full on dark red scheme though!
Do you follow the heavy eyes – low key lips idea or just go full on sometimes as well?
