MOTD: Simply Vampy

Oh how I love a dark lip.  And now with Fall in full swing - this is sure to be my go to lip for the next few months.  I wore this makeup for the Target Styles event I helped host.  

I just picked up a few of Lime Crime's Velvetine Lip Colors and I am totally smitten.  I applied this color at 3:30pm and it was still perfect at 11pm.

You can't tell, but I was having a major allergic reaction to some pain meds I was taking post-surgery.  To fake the look of flawless skin, I mixed a pea-size amount of MAC Strobe Cream into about a nickel sized dollop of MAC Studio Fix Fluid in my hands and applied it with my fingers.  To make sure it was all blended I used a powder brush with a bit of the mixture left over and buffed until it was completely blended out.

I contoured my cheeks and eyelids with Blunt blush by MAC and added an iridescent highlight with MAC Pink Pearl Pigment.  I applied the New MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped to add a bit of shine and sparkle.  LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.  It is quite thick and doesn't travel down your eye.  A few Ardell Individual Lashes to polish of the look and I'm ready to rip!
