Makeup artist Bruno Rhéaume suggests a punchy combo for the Holidays: a fiery mouth and an iridescent look!
Who said a pronounced mouth can’t be minimalist! On the contrary, a deep, shimmering, slightly smokey eye will balance the lips. To get the look, cover your eyelids with a tawny almost peach shadow using a rounded brush. Next, work the colour by applying a touch of violet, blending it to the edge of your lower lashes. To give them even more depth, add a touch of burgundy and a little black to the inner edges of your eyes. Use smaller, lighter brushes in whichever shape you prefer. The key is to achieve a shimmering and harmonious blend of colours.
You’ve got lots of choices for mascara! For an intense look, use jet black. For a less dramatic look, why not try brown or burgundy?
Extend your cheekbones up to the temples using a subtle and luminous combination of earth tones. The ideal base: a contouring palette with some added peach shadow and a bit of illuminator.
You want a perfect mouth! That’s why you should start with a matte contour pencil at the centre of your lips and then follow the outline, carefully filling them in to unify the colour and add hold.
Then apply your lipstick with a brush, staying within the contours you drew with your pencil. Whether you want a purplish Bordeaux, a dark raspberry or a fiery red, don’t hesitate to mix several shades to get the exact colour you want!
To maintain your flawless look all evening, slip a survival kit into your purse: lipstick, some gloss and a few cotton swabs for touch-ups.
