First Time Lips

Since I discovered mum's beauty box, I've always been slapping on some lip and doing something weird with the rest of the stuff I didn't know how to use. I always looked so weird but put her heels on with my tiny feet and walk around like a princess! Hahaha. Not sure why I've never had the confidence to wear any lip stick, but since I'm seeing it everywhere and with so many colours. It looks so bold but not garish. I decided to try one more time and see if I felt confident enough to leave the house. 



I love it! I watched a few youtubers give some tips and here's what I picked up.








I used Smashbox products for this look. The lipstick is Raspberry Kreme, applied all over. Then using an under eye brightener, highlighted the borders of my lips with the thin brush. A light layer of lip gloss 'fame' on top. Then  Gold Gossamer face and body powder on the peaks of my lower lip, this makes them more plump. Finally a dark eye shadow just under the pocket of my lip, again this makes your lips look bigger and fuller.


I think I've finally found a colour that suits me! What do you think? I might even go for red next!
