Chanel Antoinette Lipstick

I am fascinated by the look of a rust toned lipstick.  I think it's a very elegant shade.  It's not quite copper, but has that warm penny undertone in combination with brown and red.  One of my favourite shades, MAC Retro is the perfect matte version of a rust lipstick shade (check out the past two posts),  However, Chanel makes the most beautiful shades of lipstick and their version of rust, is the lip colour 'Antoinette'.  I have blogged about this shade before, but now that this rust shade has become somewhat of a signature for me, I felt I wanted to really promote this colour:

I think that Antoinette is so pretty on its own, that I wanted the rest of my makeup to be minimal and simple.  I didn't use any eyeshadow, but instead smudged Laura Mercier 'brown copper' eyeliner into the upper lash line and used this same shade for my lower lash line as well before finishing with black mascara.  I wanted my blush to also be warm and rust-like, so I went with NARS Liberte - my current favourite go-to shade.  I then swiped on Antoinette lipstick by Chanel.

I know that I'm the type of person who will always experiment with various makeup colours, but I truly love this look for myself as my everyday signature.
