B 'n D Makeover | Very plum

Hullo Dolls.....

Like the last look i talked about, this look almost didn't make it to the blog. Why? Well, 'cos i wasn't feeling it at all! I did this look on sunday, but i've  been stalling.

The look was inspired by a plum look i saw on a facebook page called 'Makeup lessons'......actually, it came out well, but i just.............

The lips was supposed to be created using a deep plum lipstick around the lips and then a lighter purple for the inner-part, but i didn't have a deep plum lipstick, so i had to improvise. So here's what i did....

I lined my lips with my Zaron lip pencil in 'Stallion', then i went over it with a black pencil to darken it. After that, i went in with my 'Purple haze' lipstick by My makeup cosmetics. I blended out the point where the two shades met to create that perfect 'ombre' effect you see. Finally, i cleaned out the edges of my lips with foundation.

I'm so loving my H&E brow gel, see review here. I'm totally getting the 'Ebony' shade too!

I'm still not feeling the look sha, but i'll go ahead and share the products i used. And if you ladies want, i'll share a pictorial on how i achieved the eyes...just holla.
