Red Lipstick Makeup Tutorial for Dark Skin

Red Lipstick Makeup Tutorial: Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom

coloured raine cherry blossom

I have always admired a bold red lipstick paired with the perfect look.  I was told all the time growing up, and even as an adult, that red lipstick just wasn’t for me—it was for light skinned girls.  Girls like me should stick to colors like purple, but never red.  I’ll admit it got to me, I never really felt comfortable with most reds and certainly not without a liner.  This makeup tutorial shows my new found, perfect red lipstick makeup look for dark skin! It is super easy, and WOC friendly, so I hope you all enjoy 🙂

Cool Toned Makeup Tutorial

Cool Toned Makeup Tutorial for Dark Skin

COOL TONED MAKEUP FOR DARK SKIN

Hey Guys! As a darker skinned woman, I know it can be challenging to find ways to work a cool toned makeup look and rock it.   So I did what I always do when I have trouble with something makeup related: I figured it out, and decided to show you how.  I wanted to do this look based on MAC Stone lipstick, so it was about finding an eye look to go with it, that could add something to the look without overwhelming the lip.  Duochrome works perfectly for warm skintones because the color is multidimensional!  Since MAC Blue Brown pigment is duochrome it is a cool color, but it also has warm dimensions that allow it to pair well with my skin and also with the lip!  This is a really high glam look, so I hope you are ready for a treat 🙂

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette

revealed 3 palette

Hey guys! I recently had the opportunity to try the new Revealed 3 palette.  I know a bunch of you loved the looks I have created with the Revealed 2 palette, so I decided to go ahead and try this one for you all as well.  This palette has a really unique combination of shades, all with a plum tone so it will appeal to a lot of people. I personally prefer the Revealed 2 palette since it has a rose gold theme, and I also find that the shadows in that palette are all gorgeously pigmented.  I have a look with that palette HERE.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014: Makeup Tutorial

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014

Shanina Shaik – 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London – Hair And Makeup

 

Who’s excited for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014? Perhaps the better question is who ISN’T excited.  I can’t wait to watch it! I was looking at photos online, and came across an article in which the lead makeup artist Dick Page outlined what he used as well as his vision for the makeup looks: glam but effortless.  I found products that were extremely close to the shades he used, but you can find his picks here: he used the shades Sable, Caviar and Shoyu.  After looking at photos, I just had to get this look up! I was especially the one worn by Shanina Shaik, she looks radiant and if you follow my tutorial below, you can too! This gorgeous look, is also classic and perfect for parties this time of year.  Everything used is listed below!
