Nudes and pastels may be in vogue this season, but oxblood lips are not going anywhere either. Check out below, how to work a bold pout
Cleanse, tone and moisturise your face to create a perfect base for make-up. Pick a foundation according to your skin type; cream based for dry skin and powder for oily. Apply over face and neck. With a brush, lightly apply concealer under your eyes. Blend it well by dabbing with your ring finger. Dust some loose powder over your face.
Apply plum blush on the apple of your checks using a round brush. If you don’t have a blush in this shade, use plum or oxblood lipstick as cheek stain by lightly dabbing some lip colour on your cheeks and blending with your fingers.
Keep your eye make-up minimal. Swipe rose gold eye shadow on the crease of your eyes and a little on the waterline as well. Finish two to three coats of volumising mascara.
This look is all about the lips. Exfoliate with a toothbrush and apply a light lip balm. Keep it on for a few minutes and dab it off with a tissue. Pat a little concealer to neutralise your natural lip colour and bring out the oxblood lip liner and fill in with lipstick. For a bolder look, apply two coats.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
For day: Use a burgundy lipstick and finish with oxblood lip gloss.
For evening: Go all out with a saturated oxblood lipstick in matte. For office: Dab the lipstick on with your finger for a sheer effect.
