While a girl can dream about her first pair of red bottoms, I decided to do a look inspired by the red on black signature Christian Louboutin.
This look is also a celeb favourite and is flattering on everyone!
Get the Look:
Lips ~ Wet n’ Wild “Red Velvet” matte lipstick
Eyes ~ Since I was attending a nighttime event I did not leave the eyes completely bare but still kept them neutral so that the lips would stand out against the black jumper.
I used the “Too Faced Loves Sephora Palette”, which unfortunately was a limited time item. Maybelline eyeshadow quads have some great shades so one of those palettes could work just as well.
All the following Maybelline quads have similar shades: “Give me Gold (below)”, “Copper Chic” and “Sunset Seduction.”
From the Too Faced Palette I applied the bronze shade in the crease and for smudging the bottom lash line and water line, in which I used a black Rimmel pencil. I applied gold on the lid and inner tear duct and topped it all off with my favourite mascara Estee Lauder’s “Sumptuous Bold Volume And Lift” on the upper and the lower lashes.
Cheeks ~ As a blush and bronzer I used Smashbox’s “Smashbox Soft Lights (Dusk)” and theBalm’s Betty “Mary-Lou Manizer” to really highlight the cheekbones.
Face ~ Rimmel “Stay Matte” primer, Revlon’s “Age Defying, Firming and Lifting Foundation” and Too Faced “Candle Light Powder” to set the makeup.
Hair ~ I used the barrel of the Instyler as a wand to curl my hair away from my face for soft, flowy waves. A large barrel wand would give the same effect.
Divide your hair in two sections from the middle part. Curl both sides away from the face and finish off with a light hair spray for longer lasting waves. Tease at the crown to give some lift and Viola! Here are some more pics of the complete look.
