If you've ever wanted to play around with a pure gold lip-colour, this is definitely a lipstick worth getting. I usually use this lipstick to blend with other colours (I especially like it mixed with Print Lipstick by MAC), but for the purposes of this post, I wanted to create a look using only #17 lipstick (no lipliner, no mixing, no blending). I wanted the gold pigment of the lipcolour to take centre stage:
Here is the makeup I used for this look:
Face: W4 Concealer (Loreal True Match), Make Up For Ever HD Foundation #155, MAC's Refined Golden Bronzer
BLush: Pretty Your World 'Hot and Spicy' Blush and NARS Taj Mahal as a pop of colour
Eyes: Silent Night as base (NARS) with Make Up For Ever #47 eyeshadow from lid to crease and MAC's Sumptuous Olive on the lid. MAC's Uniform eyeliner with #47 shadow on top lashline (smudged) and MAC's Teddy liner on lower lashline and Loreals Voluminous mascara in Brown-Black
Lips: Make Up For Ever #17 lipstick
I love working with shades that you can blend, mix and match and create different looks with. Make Up For Ever #17 lipstick is that kind of a shade. Its perfect for those with a warm skin-tone and has that touch of glam that is very sophisticated. I think I'm going to be wearing a lot of this colour during the Christmas and Holiday Season!!!
