The Face Edit #3 | Lazy Red Lip

8 September 2013


I'm pretty sure that I've yet to publish a Face Edit post which hasn't featured a natural base, eyes and lip combo. Now that my favourite season of all, autumn, is clearly on its way, I decided that it was acceptable to break out one of my favourite red lipsticks, MAC's Deeply Adored. I posted a full review of this lipstick here almost a year ago, but in all honesty it's remained fairly neglected in my lip drawer for the last six months or so, as I've favoured my nude shades.

NARS Sheer Glow is my go to foundation for when I need a little extra help, and as my chin and forehead has been spot central lately I slapped it on my face with my fingertips, and a little extra help from my buffing brush. I paired Bobbi Brown Corrector with the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (which I purchased in Vegas and absolutely love) for a little under eye help, and used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on any pesky blemishes. To complete my base, I used an old favourite - NYX Peach Blush - combined with a new one - MAC Soft & Gentle.

Once I'd just about got my base under control, I opted to keep my eyes extra simple. I slicked some Anastasia Gel through my brows and Maybelline's Rocket mascara on my upper lashes only, because of A) laziness and B) testing out my new specs. Finally, I slicked on Deeply Adored - no lip liner required - and I was good to go. An easy peasy base/eye combo with a bit of a bold lip, yes, I'm slowly dragging myself away from peachy nude shades.

  8. This is such a gorgeous look! I'm always far too self-conscious to try out bold lip colours, but I'd love to give it a go for A/W xx
