What goes better with a neutral eye, than a red lip? Now I've often been one to steer clear of the world of the bright and sometimes intimidating red lipstick. I mean, I've always admired women that rock a gorgeous red lipstick, but I lacked the confidence to do anything but dabble and merely experiment with this colour. 
With my collection of red lipsticks growing, I thought that it was about time that I actually start wearing it!

To create this look I used:
Skin79 BB cream to prime is easy my skin.
Mirenesse Skin Clone Mineral foundation. This gorgeous pressed foundation is easy to apply with a kabuki brush. It evens out my skin tone without feeling heavy or chalky, and doesn't settle into fine lines. Once applied, I just use a concealer  brush to add a little more coverage to my under eye area.

These are the shadows from the faux Nars palette that I used on my eyes. 
I also used Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Duo. 
To line my eyes, I applied Maybelline Master Precise liquid liner. I love, love, love this liner. Not only an amazing liner, but budget-friendly, too! 
On my brows, I used Mirenesse 24 hr Brow Lift and Shape. An easy to use brush on gel. It adds definition, whilst taming brows.

To create a flush of colour for my cheeks, I used the blush from the Australis Face-A-Holic palette. This blush is a pressed marbled pattern of hot pink and tan to mocha shades. My first application was a little too much, but I easily toned it down by applying the pressed powder from the middle section of the palette. This successfully toned down the look, without being cakey.

Last, but certainly not least, I applied this gorgeous shade of red. It is Mirenesse Glossy Kiss in First Kiss. These lip products are in form of a lip crayon. It first applies as a glossy lipstick, which over time fades to a nice stain, without being patchy. 

I think I might wear red lipstick more often!
