Happy Monday, folks. These past few weeks have been a little slow with my moving to another state, so I wanted to make it up to you. I’ve been working on a makeup project and will posting every week day for the next two weeks! The project is inspired by blogger Emily Loke, who created this 10 Day Makeup Challenge. Every day, I will create a makeup look based around a specific feature. You might notice a few common themes throughout the next few weeks: my selfie game is not strong, I like bronzer, and this spray tan fades so fast that it’s impossible to find a foundation to keep up with it (so I don’t even try). Today’s challenge was to create a look based on a red lip.
Red lipstick is classic. I think old school Hollywood glam when I think red lipstick, which is exactly why I wanted to switch it up by not doing that look. Red lipstick dresses everything up, which is why I think it’s perfect to pair with effortless hair and fashion for the ultimate cool girl chic.
In my own collection, I really dig deeper blue reds, but I thought something a bit more orange would be summery and fun for this look. Since I don’t own an orange based red lipstick, I decided to mix together two favorites: Nars Cruella, which is a gorgeous blue tone, and Wet n Wild’s Pretty Persimmon, which is basically orange, but a red-orange. It’s a little cliche, but I paired it with classic winged liner.
- Nars Cruella

I hope you enjoyed! Check back tomorrow, for Day 2 of the challenge, my take on gilded lids.
Now that I’ve finished the challenge, have a look at my other looks!
