Tutorial Tuesday: Daily Lipstick Look Makeup Tutorial

As you may remember, it’s Lipstick Week!  That means that today’s makeup tutorial will focus on the lips.  There’ll still be eye makeup, but it’ll be subdued.

We want the attention on our lips!

I’m calling this makeup tutorial Daily Lipstick Look.  Because, frankly, I couldn’t think of anything better.

And it is replacing the daily look for today.

In today’s look, you’ll also learn a bit of a cat eye using liquid eyeliner.

Let’s get started!

We always start with a bare face:

Yeah, lovely…

I used just a bit of translucent powder today.  You can use whatever right here, whether it’s foundation or whatever.  You can learn more about this step here: Priming the Canvas: Getting Your Face Ready for Makeup.

Also, you may want to beautify your eyebrows in this step.  I used eyebrow powder.

Now you’ll need your supplies.  Although you can use whatever you want (as long as it gets a similar look) here’s what I used:

  1. Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet
  2. N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black
  3. Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black
  4. Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in Penelope’s Red

Now that we have everything, it’s time to really start.

Now, the colors you do for your eyes are completely up to you.  This look can change because the colors you choose are going to be subtle anyway.

Since I’m wearing pink, I chose pink.  See?

First, I picked a bright, hot pink from the Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet.  I swept just a little bit from the middle of my lip out to the outside corner.

Then I used a lighter, softer pink.  I blended this into the first color and used it across the lid, leaving the innermost inch empty.

Finally, I used a light white/beige color at the inside corner, blending it into the light pink.

Such a soft, subdued look.  Just what I wanted!

Now, eyeliner.  I swear that line looked straighter in person.  I swear!

I used N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner.  I swept it from the outside corner inward.  To make the cat eye, I took small, slow strokes so that I had the most control.

You can see the desired shape in the picture above.

Then, mascara.  I used Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. I used it liberally on both the top and bottom lashes.

Lips!  Here’s the boldest part of the whole look.  I used a red lipstick because it stands out the most.  I used Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in Penelope’s Red.

I didn’t use lip liner, because I didn’t want it to look harsh.  Instead, I just took the lipstick and applied it straight from the tube.  No lip brushes for me!

Blotting is important.  It gets rid of excess lipstick and can help set the color.

Now, it’s time for the after shots:

Tah dah!

I’d say it’s pretty.  And super bold where the lips are concerned.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Daily Lipstick Look makeup tutorial.
