    Pale skin and a dark lip



    This is a typical everyday look for me in the winter, a really pared down eye and a dark lip. Theres a matte blue grey in the crease which you can't really see, hopefully I can start taking better quality pics soon :-/, but I think a cool toned grey adds a nice contrast to the lip. Anyway this is Wet n Wild's 908c (Sugarplum Fairy) on the lips, it's a dead-on dupe for Mac's Rebel but I actually like this one better because it's matte so a lot more pigmented and stays put for hours!

    Products used:

    Face:
    -Clinique Repairwear Foundation in # 2
    -Mac Studio Finish concealer in NW20
    -Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
    -Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint

    Eyes+Eyebrows:
    -Clinique black gel liner
    -NYX matte eyeshadow in Craving
    -Topshop highlighter in Crescent Moon on the inner corners
    -Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
    -Sephora Retractable Brow Pencil in 04 Midnight Brown

    Lips:
    -Sephora Retractable lip liner in 07 plum
    - Mac Rebel lipstick, matted down with translucent powder
