1960's Inspired Bitten Lip Makeup Look and Spring Fashion
April 3, 2015
Get the Look:
Lips- Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor lip stain in Poppy Paradise applied just on the inner, center part of lips. Swipe a thin coat of your favorite lip balm over (I use Burts Bees), then apply Naked Dolly by Too Faced over the rest of lips, avoiding the very center.
Face: Origins Stay Tuned Balancing Foundation in Honey
Cheeks- Tarte Bronzer and highlighter in Park Avenue Princess compact and Tarte blush in dollface.
Eyes- Tartlette colors by Tarte: Force of Nature on the eyelids, Free Spirit on the brow bone and multi-tasker used as a wet liner with a liner brush. Mascara by Younique Fiber Lashes, and brows defined with Tarte brow powder in medium brown.
TIPS: blend, blend, blend for a soft and subtle natural look. Good brushes are key! I am using Too Faced Brushes, which I've used for years, plus a few extras from Sephora.
Hair- spring is the quintessential braid season, so I sported a subtle look here by just simply adding two braids to the face frame of my usual hairstyle, parted to the side. It works because it's not too contrived, yet a fresh change for spring.
One of my favorite ways to do fashion is mix up current trends with tried and true classics. The tank, skinny jeans and necklace are by Madewell (one of my new favorite companies), paired with your classic boat shoe by Bass, a Kate Spade Pisces astrology bracelet (a gift from my good friend), and lastly the gold leaf record bracelet by George Kamen, artist at Wrecords by Monkey.
