FOTD: Buff and Wine

Hello everyone! This is another FOTD which is a very easy 10 minute red lip makeup look. I kept the face and the eyes simple and the brows thick but less defined because I was going for a rather elegant yet youthful look.

This is not an everyday look for most of us but is surely wearable during the day because of the very soft face and eyes. The buff toned eye makeup paired with red lips make a nice contrast while maintaining the whole look clean and polished. And you can get away with a messy bun if you're feeling lazy or pressed for time with this makeup! (which I actually did) :D

On the eyes I'm using a sheer eyeshadow quad to keep it soft and subtle. I used the darker brown shade from the quad on the crease, applied the lightest color on the lids and brow bone, and layered 3 coats of mascara on the lashes to add definition and depth to the eyes. I blotted my lips with a tissue because the lipstick I used is very juicy and I want it to look more matte. I lightly brushed the bronzer around my face to add glow to the look.

Products Used:

Danahan BB Cream
Revlon Loose Face Powder
Revlon Matte Single Eyes Shadow in Rich Sable for the brows
Revlon Color Stay 12-hour Eye Eye Shadow Quad in Buff
Cover Girl Last Blast Volume Mascara  
NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Wine

I love how this makeup can make you look like you put on extra effort in creating this look when it only took a little less than 10 minutes to do. You can even accomplish this in 5 minutes if you want to but I was taking my time when I did this :D. So far I like it and it looks a lot better in person :D.

I'll be reviewing my Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara tomorrow so please check it out too! Take care everyone and you have a good night / day!
