Makeup Look: Dark, Dark Lips

Do you ever have those days when you feel you need to put the darkest lipstick you own on to get through the day? That was me over the weekend.

I think I had some sort of block, I just couldn’t function or get motivated. So I decided to dig out one of my all time favourite MAC lipsticks, Hearts Aflame to get me through..

The L’Oreal palette doesn’t include any shade names, but I used the 2nd, 6th and 8th shade blended to create the look on the eyes with winged liner over the top. I wanted the lipstick to be the focus, so tried to keep the eyes quite neutral.
If I had enough time, I would totally wear darker makeup everyday. I struggle to chuck mascara on in the mornings though, so perfecting my Wednesday Addams look may take a bit more dedication to getting up early. I just love my bed a bit too much to make that commitment.

    i feel you because i have days wherein i feel like wearing dark lips (i actually have about 6 shade of lipstick which i carry on my bag everyday), dark lips such as dark red and purple. And then there are those days wherein I feel like very girly and sweet so i put on a peach or light pink one. And I think that boost a girl's confidence. 🙂

    Have a great day dear!
    anyway, i hope you can drop by at my blog too!:)

    xoxo, rae
