It’s almost hometime, it's nearly the weekend, and yes, we’ve got that Friday feeling. Finally a cocktail along with a good old dance are within our grasp. And the beauty look for tonight is…? Well cue drum-rolls please because Team Beauty are being brave and rebelling against our tinted moisturiser, mascara and blusher habit by working A/W 10’s signature red lip.
We’re going to experiment with YSL’s amazing new Rouge Pur Couture range which incorporates a black and a white within it’s 18 shade palette, making it possible to darken or lighten your shade exactly as you please - it’s just like colouring in! Beauty Intern Angelica has mixed Le Orange with a speedy slick of Blanc Manifesto while Beauty Assistant Rose added a dot of Noir Laque to the middle of the lip before applying a generous dose of Le Rouge on top. When going for that flawless mouth, remember to draw the contour of the mouth with lip liner before applying the lipstick in layers, blotting between each one. A dash of finishing powder will fix and mattify for the perfect finish. No one wants to end up with lippie on their glass, or even worse, their teeth... Happy weekend people!
