Beauty- Bold Lip & Cat Eye- Fall Look

September 22, 2017

Out with the old, in with the bold…lip that is.

I couldn’t help but keep the theme for this fall beauty look to, you’ve guessed it, my favourite colour-burgundy! I also wanted to pair cat-eye liner with the bold lips, because it adds some playfulness to the overall look (makeup looks are all about having fun).

For this look I went to the pros at Sephora (I highly recommend Ivy- she’s knowledgable, listens to what you want & any skin concerns you may have, and has an extremely steady hand- she did my cat eye in one go!). I was fortunate enough to test out newer products from the IT cosmetics line; I love how there’s SPF in all their makeup products. I also really enjoyed all the products from Farmacy- they’re natural, smell delicious and great for sensitive skin.

There were a lot of firsts for me for this look- first time using a tinted brow gel (I’m a fan), and first time contouring. The keys to contouring involves using the right brush, the motion-it’s all about swiping up and around the cheekbone, and building the coverage- start light then add layers to achieve the perfect contoured look.

This look included full brows, light purple shadow, cat-eyes, light all over face coverage, contoured highlight and of course a bold lip!

Are you bold enough to try this look?
