The “No Makeup” makeup look may be what’s trending, but what really sets you apart from the rest? Perhaps it’s time to experiment with a new look? Set aside that natural beauty look today and just let your inner freak flag fly. Here are 4 looks to try out for all you non-conformists.
Impartial to perfect red lips? We get you. The red lip lifts your look in a pinch. Make sure to use a lip liner and draw a v at the center of your lips to accentuate your cupid’s bow, but don’t just stop there. Pair red lips with eyeliner that’s on fleek, and go for a sultry eye that’s a blend of black and cream.
Rebel Without A Cause
Show just how powerful and tough you are by putting on purple lips that steal the show. Sweep a soft bronze below your cheekbone and a subtle highlight above it to complement this edgy look.
Go against the tide with a black lip. Nothing says “different” than the ultimate dark shade. Swipe it on using a lip brush for perfect pigment distribution. Scrap plain highlight and dab on some silver shimmer, on the cheekbones, that reflects specs of blue to finish off the vampy look.
Be experimental and play with gradient lips. Keep cool and opt for shades of blue to deviate away from typical warm gradients. Match your eyes with your lips by swiping on metallic colors, and fill in your eyebrows with feathered strokes so as not to overpower the the lip and eye makeup.
