I use to shy away from wearing red lipsticks because I thought it made me look overdone, but with a boost in confidence and curiosity, I began my journey to find the right red. I had a chance to do Back 2 MAC, which is a MAC recycling program. You need to have 6 empty MAC containers and each 6 containers can be traded in at either a MAC freestanding store or a MAC department store location. If you go to the MAC department store counter, you will get a lipstick and if you go to the freestanding store, you have a choice between an eye shadow, a lip gloss, or a lipstick (if I'm not mistaken).
I am wearing MAC Red and it's gorgeous!
I've been practicing (or experimenting) with colors lately, especially since getting the Flirt! palette from the Cosmetic Company Outlet store. It's great because I get to use it as much as I can without as oppose to using my more high end brands. I have 4 Coastal Scents palettes, but they are sadly collecting dust within my makeup stash. I broke out pretty badly when I started using one of the palettes. Plus the texture of those eye shadows are sometimes chalky to me.
If you will look closely...yes I did forget to put mascara on that is why my real lashes are not blending with the faux ones. Haha. Silly me. I'm wearing Darkness eye lashes that I got from H-Mart.

I wore this look today while I was out with my hubby and our daughter Mia.
We stopped by a few dress stores to drop off my business card. I have a few gigs lined up so I am super excited!
I used my Urban Decay Book of Shadows NYC palette to get this look but you can definitely substitute with a different brand. The colors I used were a shimmery purple, a matte black, a shimmery brown, and a satin finish light pink to high light.

I lined my water lines with black eye liner and lined the bottom lash lines with a purple eye liner.

Hope you guys like these looks! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Have a great weekend!


  1. I love how this type of red looks on you. It's not too dark or light. It's just right

  2. Sexy eyes! They are perfectly done!
