I’m not much of a beauty blogger or beauty guru, but I do love a dark lip. Maybe it’s my dark skin. Honestly, dark eyes are a tough look for me to replicate. They always end up making my eyes look too dark. Dark lips though, that is my jam. Winged eyeliner, as much as I wish I could do it, is currently not a possibility for me. I tried for my sorority formal and almost got it, but I think my eyes are shaped wrong or something because I could not get it to look good.
I have a few colors that are my favorite colors including Diva from MAC. I also have Sin from MAC, but I end up wearing Diva more often. The difference between Diva and Sin is minimal, but Sin always ends up looking more vampy than Diva. I’ve swatched both on my olive skin tone so you can see the difference. I also just got the perfect gloss to go with both of these and I cannot wait to wear it out this year. It’s from the Kylie holiday collection and, yes, I did sit on my phone until the exact minute of the launch and waited 25 minutes to purchase it. The color is Jolly and it’s a super deep burgundy color that is the perfect tone to match with the Diva lipstick. It adds just the perfect amount of shine.
I like to keep the rest of my eyes subtle to pair with the dramatic lipstick. Surprisingly, I am wearing colors from the Naked Smoky palette. This palette is my absolute favorite of the Naked palettes, followed by Naked 2, 1 and 3. I always take it with me on trips because it has the perfect mix of matte neutrals and sparkly shades that are more suited for going out.
This is also my first attempt at liquid liner so please, be nice to me. Liquid liner is freaking hard. The rest of my makeup is pretty basic, and you can shop all of it below. I’ve got my favorite foundation, blush, highlighter, and the rest of the sort. Hope you like my holiday inspired look!
