FOTD: Matte red lips and bronze smokey eyes

(click pictures for full size)

This is the makeup I wore in my last video, alerting to the stolen videos situation. The natural lighting was perfect on this day to show the makeup as accurately as possible. A few people commented on the red lips so I thought I'd post this to let you know what I used. Red lips is one of my favorite styles to wear on myself, I know some people prefer glossy or nude lips but I think the matte red lip is just a timeless classic and will always add a touch of sophistication.

Face:
Ben Nye concealer, Studio Fix foundation, Alima mineral foundation, MAC Blushbaby blush, MAC Shimpagne MSF
Eyes:
MAC Untitled Paint, MAC e/s in Woodwinked, Mulch, Carbon, Dazzlelight, L'Oreal Intense liquid eyeliner, Maybelline white kohl pencil, Covergirl Lashblast mascara
Lips:
MAC Red Enriched lipliner, NYX Chaos lipstick

Incidentally, I will keep you updated with the Girlyvue situation, although I'm feeling like not many other of the "big name" gurus (as much as I hate saying that, I mean those with lots of viewers and subscribers) really care? My own videos have been removed but I will try to keep at it to get the site taken down, but if I'm standing out there on a limb by myself, I feel like this is a pointless battle to fight for other people that are affected. I really appreciate any videographers that have already and continue to take action by alerting the webhost and Google Adsense about this situation.

  4. I have that lipstick, just bought two. I always seems to buy back ups for NYX. They are now made in Taiwan. No longer P.R.O.C.

    does the curling iron leave a dent in your hair at the end where you put it in the curling iron?
    i cant seem to curl my hair with a curling iron because of that, i always curl my hair with my straightener..

  12. I'd kill for your ability to pull off red lips so effortlessly. I went to the site you mentioned and raised hell in the email I sent them. I cannot believe the nerves of some people. You are amazing and I really appreciate how you are looking after everyone. Together we can fight this!
