Recreate the look – Matte Red Lip

By  |  0 Comments

This gorgeous, almost lip stain comes from the Thakoon catwalk for AW2012.  Notice the rest of the face is bare – no eye, no mascara, no blush or bronze.  If this prospect is a little too scary for you…try a light flush of natural colouring to your cheeks – a NARS Douceur to give a little contour to the cheekbones maybe or a gentle rosy pink (Lovely Rose by Clarins springs to mind) over the top of  Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation.

Brown mascara will give a light coverage to your lashes without looking overdone or too intense and a light wash of something like M.A.C shadow in Yoghurt (my go to base colour for years)

So what about the lips?  There are various options;

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square should give you the right coverage, matte effect and the orangey hit.

I still think this looks like a lipstain, so perhaps Benetint might pull this off?
