Now that I am a fan of lip colors, You cannot keep me away from a good red. Recently I’ve sampled Avenue from Colourpop Cosmetics, and its definitely love! In the sun, and on my shade of chocolate, it comes as a blend of red orange, but it pops. I’ve become fond of blessing my Cupid’s bow with a highlight, usually from NYX cosmetics. The specific shade I am wearing is Pinkie Dust, which is a golden rose highlight.
I’ve searched high and low for a nude that would compliment my chocolate brown skin, and after plenty of trials and errors I’ve finally found it! NYX’s brand is one of my absolute favorites currently. I’ve always appreciated the lip glosses because it gives me not only a dose of Shine, it’s so very pigmented. I’ve blended Praline and Beyond Basic, which is their new slip tease full color lip oil. Because I am a chocolate cutie, I find that I don’t need much Beyond Basic. I first use Praline as a base coat of sorts, then I dab about three dots on my bottom lip and I blend my lips together then Voila! Magic is created! Also in this look I use my NYX’s bright idea illuminating stick in Sun Kissed Crush on my Cupid’s bow.
I love Makeup! Specifically I love lip colours! I believe my first colour as an adult was NYX Transylvania, it’s this deep plum that has folks complimenting me left and right whenever I wear it! As much as I love colour, sometimes it’s hard to get an accurate depiction of what the color will look like on my skin color, and in natural light. So… since I’m going to wear the colours anyway, I figured I would become a “beauty blogger” and capture the shades while on my way to work, in natural light, using a bright orange backdrop, because why not?!
So I present my first installment. Love it!
This is ColourPop’s Collaboration with ILUVSARAHII, the color is Mamacita and I’m in love. It’s a matte formula but it’s perfect for the fall going into the winter season. I also used NYX’s Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Sun Kissed Crush on my Cupid’s bow.
