Space Kiss | LipArt Makeup



Another Lipart with a shadow from The Body Needs Falling Stars Collection. I love the immediate contrast these colors have with the black pigment and the shiny glitters.

To achieve this effect I based my lip with black cream makeup and used a flat shader brush to press Falling Stars Pink Gold on to my upper and lower lip. I then began blending the iridescent pink you see called Butterfly onto my cupids bow and downward. Cleaned up the edges with concealer and topped my upper lip off with lip gloss!

I'm still a noob when it comes to lipart but I see such beautiful and creative ideas put into it I like to experiment and see what I can do.

I hope you enjoyed this look, please feel free to comment below.

Gilded Kisses


Focusing on a neutral lipart today, I recreated an amped up version of the custom lip tar I used in my Orange Smokey Eye makeup look. To create this gilded nude lip I mixed one of my favorite shades from The Body Needs called 'Pink Diamonds' with a clear gloss and layered it over top of Milanis Lip Pencil in Spice.

This closeup definitely exposes my need for a lip wax. We all have that extra fuzz up there and for those of us with darker hair it can be more noticeable than those with fair hair. I prefer to wax mine as its smooth and last for weeks, I will admit that in desperate times I've reached for an eyebrow razor for a quick fix but I hate using shaving as a method for hair removal because it doesn't feel as smooth and it last for all of two seconds before you have hair sprouting back out. In high school I used to thread it, but my tolerance is not what it once was and it just hurts too much. I have no idea how I used to handle it. Hair removal creams seem to be a  popular option but personally I question their safety and I just don't feel comfortable putting those chemicals on my skin.

I recommend lip waxing all the way! How do you feel about 'lady-staches'?
