FOTD: Classic Red Lip + Neutral Eyes

*Hello!*
I've always admired anyone who can pull off a red lip really well. I never thought I could (and am still not sure I can LOL) but after I colored my hair back to brunette, I'm finding myself wearing more colors and being more daring than when I was a blonde. Werid, I know. 

Anyways I was trying out a red lip and paired it with a neutral eye looks so I thought I would share it here on my blog!

FOTD- Red Lips and Neutral Eyes 


For the Face 


Primer- Benefit Porefessional 
Foundation- Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation 
Concealer- Mac Pro Longwear 
Powder- Rimmel Stat Matte 

Bronzer- Benefit Hoola
Blush- Tarte Amazonian Clay in Exposded 
Highlighter- Mac Soft and Gentle 

For the Lips 

I got both of these lips prodcuts in Ipsy bags. I always get a lot of red lip products from them and I usually just throw them in a box and never use them. I pulled these two out to try them with some incouragment from a friend. The lip crayon is from J Cats and the gloss is from Bombshell. 



For the Eyes 


This is my everyday eye look using the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. About 90% of the time, this is the eye look that I wear. It's fast, easy, and takes no time to do. 

Primer- Mac Painterly Paint Pot
Lid Color- w.o.s 
Crease Color- faint and blended out with naked 2
Lower Lash Line- faint 
Brow Bone- Venus
Eyeliner- L'Oreal lineur intense liquid liner and L'Oreal extra intense liquid eye pencil in water line
Mascara- Maybelline Falsies 


This is all for my FOTD post! The red lip was definitely out of my comfort zone, but the more I wore it, the more I was stating to like it! I think it looks really bright against my pale skin, which is kind of scary haha!! 

Can you rock red lips? Let me know in the comments!
