Rose Gold Lids and Cranberry Lips

Yesterday I decided to not be a lazy bum and do a look for you guys. I thought long and hard about doing a video but the thought of editing the footage then uploading mentally exhausted me. I want to be better about posting in the blog so I decided to get some practice with shooting myself, especially since I bought some new makeup products from the drugstore recently. I honestly had no idea what look I was going for, I sat in front of my mirror, turned on Netflix and just created this cranberry rose gold look. I ended up loving how it turned out and wanted to share!

For the eyes:

I primed my eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. I never used to prime my eyes before but I realized how vibrant and crease-free my shadows appear ever since using this particular one. Not to mention, it lasts all day!

The star of the show was the Milani Eye Quad in Florence. I picked this up not long ago and opened it for the first time yesterday. It looks like it would be a high-pigmented powder but when I stuck my finger in the shadow, it had a jelly-like consistency. The color payoff and finish is absolutely beautiful. I initially used a synthetic brush but that got messy and the glitter went everywhere. I then used my finger, which worked a little bit better. I noticed it came with a “brush” applicator (like all shadow quads, which I normally ignore), but this one was a bendable, silicone finish applicator. It surprisingly worked the best to pack the shadow onto the lids without being messy. I used the rose gold on the entire lid. I then went in with “Truffled” from the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced and worked that into my crease. I felt like this was a bit much so I dabbed my brush in my matte bronzer to help blend the crease better. For eyeliner, I used NYC Liquid Liner in “Black”. I’ve heard bloggers RAVE about this product, it definitely is amazing but I still have to get used to the brush since it’s a little more flimsy with the fluid. I popped on some Lilly Lashes in “Napoli” and “London” but this is most definitely optional.

My lips were a combo of Wet N Wild lipstick in Cherry Bomb and dabs of American Doll Liquid Lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills in the center of my lips. I don’t recommend the Wet n Wild Lipstick at all. It completely feathered on me and looked awful after some time (even with a liner). Whenever I do a bold lip, I love for it to be clean, cut and crisp.

This look was very simple and pretty easy to create! I will gladly do a tutorial if you all would like, let me know!
