Classic Red Lips and Easy Eye Makeup (No Eyeshadow)



If you are a red lip lover, this look is perfect for you! Since I used red lip color, I matched it with a simple winged eyeliner and didn’t use any eyeshadow. What did I use? My contouring and highlighting palette from Lorac. What I love about this look is that it is classy and perfect for this weekend – Valentine’s day! The eye makeup is just easy to do, you just need to make sure that the entire eyelids are matte by patting down some pressed or loose powder. Also, whether you want a long or short winged eyeliner, it’s up to you! I also wore false lashes for this look since you can’t barely see my real lashes in the photo.

For this look:

  1. I used a matte finish foundation and applied it all over my face (including the eyelids and lips) to even out my skintone.
  2. I grabbed my small angle brush and used MAC Dipbrow to fill up my eyebrows and brow gel to set it.
  3. I pat down some pressed powder on my entire eyelid and used my blending brush to contour my outer crease using the Lorac contour palette.
  4. For the winged eyeliner, I decided to use my liquid pen eyeliner and curled my lashes and then mascara for upper and lower lashes. I also used my favorite natural false lashes – Ardell!
  5. By using a pencil eyeliner in natural color (not in the photo, ooops), I applied it on my waterline to open up my eyes.
  6. I used the medium contour powder (from Lorac palette) to darken my lower lash line and used the shimmer highlighter on my tear duct.
  7. I used MAC powder blush in stubborn for the cheeks and did some contouring on the side of my cheeks and nose.
  8. Lastly, I used MAC Lipmix in red for my lip color. By the way, this is a very long-wearing/ smudge-proof lipstick!
