Long Lasting Red Lips & Winged Eye Liner

Mad Men has a new season premiering this Sunday and I couldn’t be more excited! It inspired me to do a series on beauty classics – red lips and winged eye liner. Red lips never go out of style but this season it’s all about a matte finish (just like how Christina Hendricks and Adele are wearing it). Also, try complementing the lip color with a red nail color that is 1 or 2 shades darker. Watch the video tutorial to learn how to keep those red lips lasting all night long.

Steps for Winged Eye Liner:

  1. Start in the middle of the lid and draw your line to your outer corner. I did more of a subtle look, but you can extend the line out further for a more dramatic winged eyeliner.

  2. Re-apply product to brush, starting the middle again and working your way to the inner corner.

  3. Curl lashes and finish with coat of mascara.

Tips:

  • Make sure your elbow is on a steady surface.

  • Use a dashing method to draw the line and fill in the spots as you go.

  • Don’t start on the inner corner, you don’t know how much product is on the brush.

 

Steps for Long-Lasting Red Lips:

  1. Fill in entire lips with liner.

  2. Apply lipstick, pressing it into the lip, blend with a brush.

  3. Blot with tissue.

  4. Apply another layer of lipstick, pressing it into the lip.

  5. Lightly dust on transparent powder (I used MAC’s translucent powder)

  6. Apply another layer of lipstick and use liner to sharpen edges.

Tips:

  • Prep lips with a scrub, apply lip balm and let it set, do your normal foundation rountine, then wipe away excess lip balm before doing the steps above.
  • Skip steps 5-8 if using a long lasting lipstick like Covergirl lipperfection.

  • Add blush after you have applied the red lipstick.
  • Add false lashes to finish the look.
