My latest makeup tutorial features a dramatic and edgy pink lips look. I wore this whole look to the L’Oreal Fashion Festival this year and it has been requested by quite a few of my subbies on my Facebook Page.
The makeup has strong emphasis on the brows, eyes and the lips. I made my brows darker and more arched than normal and used liquid eyeliner to get that sleek cat-eye look. I used a pair of full and curly false eyelashes on the top lash-line and also added some special false eyelashes to to outer half of the lower lash-line.
I also decided to slightly contour my nose for this look, as it suits the dramatic makeup. Of course, I completed the whole look with the pink lipstick. I used Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in ‘Fuchsia Fusion’, if you look closely, it has a purple sheen over the pink – just gorgeous!
I decided to pair a simple but classy low pony-tail hairstyle to go with this look. I just swept my hair back into a pony-tail and wrapped a strand of my own hair over the hair-tie to hide it. This literally takes 2 minutes so it’s also ideal for school as well 🙂
The main emphasis of the makeup look is on the bright pink lips, so it is best to stick with black, white and silver for the outfit. Don’t be afraid to add to the drama by wearing something funky and ‘out-there’.
My long-sleeve black dress is from Supre Warehouse, I got it for only about $14.95! It is very figure-hugging with shoulder pads and Michael Jackson inspired chain detail.
From reading the comments, alot of viewers really like my crazy Lady Gaga shoes (cos they remind me of ‘Bad Romance’ haha)! I’m not surprised as they are probably my favourite pair of heels. I actually bought them on eBay (shipped from Korea) for about $60AUD, which is definitely a huge bargain considering they look like a pair of expensive designer heels. And to top it off, despite the huge platform and heel height, they are actually VERY comfortable to wear (I wore them for a whole day at the races last year!).
And just finishing off with some photos of me and my friends from the actual L’Oreal Fashion Festival event I attended all the way in March! Gosh I was so much more tanned back then haha 😛 All these photos were taken by various professional photographers who were there that day.
Have you attended any fashion festivals or runway shows? What was your look?
