Face Value

Red lips 2 edited

Tools used :
Primer - MUA / Foundation : Dainty Doll by Nicole Roberts Shade '002' 
Upper Liner - Barry M 'wink' felt liner / Lower liner - Rimmel London soft Kahl in '061 Jet' 
Mascara - Rimmel London Volume Mascara flash in '001black'
Lips - MUA 'shade 1 red' 

What could be more fitting for a début post than a close up zoomed in feature on my face? It seemed rather rude to jump straight into the inner musings of my mind without at least introducing my aesthetics to you all. The above look is definitely one that I favour, in fact I'm almost notorious (albeit in a disappointingly none scandalous way) for my love of a good red lip. I personally blame icons such as Gwen Stefani and Rose McGowan for my affliction with slashes of scarlett and am resolutely confident that it won't be disappearing any-time soon. Cat-eyes are my other 'trademark' many a morning battle for eye equality has been waged in my bedroom, with a range of endlessly frustrated loved ones preying that I become bored of this look and appear on time for once. Alas that too seems unlikely and my only bone of contention here is that the photographs above fail to do my miraculously even flicks justice - always the way! 

Enough rambling about me though, I'd love to know what your trademark look is : are you known for a  perfect smoky eye? A nude lip? Or, are you in fact, a bare faced beauty, championing what mother nature gave you? 

Let me know below.
You can find links to all products used in the look above in the list.

I don't think I have a signature makeup look at the moment. I used to ALWAYS wear a winged eye but hardly wear eyeliner at all any more. A red lip just looks amazing against your perfect porcelain skin tone Sarah! :)

Love, Rachel
