Navy meets up with Deep Berry

I think I am starting to develop a slight obsession with a deeper toned lip - I'm loving that rich burgundy, wine, mahogany and deep berry lipstick look - there is something mysterious, sophisticated, elegant, yet uber-creative and dramatic about it.  This look can be both rocker-chic and elegant city chic - its all in how you carry yourself, what you choose to wear and accessorize with this makeup look.  I decided to create a nice harmony by pairing the deep berry lipstick shade with a burgundy blush shade and navy/muted greys on the eyes - check it out:

Here is the makeup I used for this look - I started with my basic 'face' (mineral fusion foundation in olive, mineral fusion concealer in warm and translucent powder).  I then mixed MAC's Fever and Raizin blushes for the cheeks.  On the eyes, I started with brule as a base, used Smut on the lid into the crease and then applied Blooz eyeliner - I smudged the upper lashline with Nehru shadow and used Smolder eyeliner on the lower-lashline before finishing with mascara (all the eyemakeup products are MAC) - For the lips, I used MAC's Mahogany lipliner with Hang-Up lipstick!  Hang up is one of my all time favourite deep berry/burgundy shades - its slightly more 'berry-purple' than Diva, but looks amazing with Mahogany and Burgundy liners - LOVE this look!!!

First of all, I love your blog! I am also in the process of trying to find my perfect colors! From all the pics I've seen of you on here, my guess is soft summer. The summer/autumn blend colors are beautiful and would compliment your lovely skin. I just thought I'd put in my 2 cents. ;) Keep us updated on your journey!
Best Regards!

THank you so much - Lately I have settled on 'Deep Winter Soft' which still has a bit of a warm influence, but if more of a 'deeper soft summer', just leaning more towards winter - I have to say that I do LOVE the soft summer shades, they are so pretty - thanks again for writing!!!
