Here I am wearing the YSL #1 Le Rouge:
One thing that I really love about the YSL lipstick is just how silky they feel against the lips. I feel that I'm not even wearing any lipstick!!! It's just an 'elegant' lipstick - from the packaging, to the texture, to the look!!! I LOVE YSL #1 Le Rouge :)
Another Warm Red that I recently discovered is NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lipliner - It actually matches the Warm Autumn Tangerine Swatch, but it has enough red in it for me to want to classify it as a warm true red or at least as more of an orange-red:
I love wearing the NARS Matte Liners! First, they act as a lipstick on their own, however, they are also the most practical blending/mixing colour. I look forward to experimenting with this colour and mixing in various other Warm Autumn shades. I'm always brainstorming how this liner will work with all my various gold/copper lipsticks :)
I really love that I now have a great tangerine-red liner and warm true red lipstick to play with! So to end this post, I decided that I would combine the two together :)
The result: THE perfect warm true red lip!!!
To create this look, I didn't just focus on the lips. I also wanted to balance out the lip with a subtle smokey eyemakeup effect. I started with my basic face - I used the loreal true match concealer and foundation in W 4-5. I then applied MAC Coppertone blush. I started the eye makeup look with MAC Amber Lights applied to the lid into the crease. I then used Laura Mercier Brown Copper eyeliner and smudged a deep golden brown shade into the liner (from the too faced natural eye palette). I finished the look with a swipe of mascara.
I also wore one of my warm yellowed greens for this photo, as I thought that the brightness was the perfect compliment to the red lip!!!
Bravo to the warm true red lip!!!
