Bold Lips Series: Inspired Fuschia Lip #2

This particular look was inspired by Kim Kardashian's "Naughty Look" - an 80's smokey eye paired with bold fuschia lips by Troy Jensen. Although the eye makeup is more dramatic, it is not by any means over done or drag queen like etc. I think this look is absolutely stunning, gorgeous and unique because most people play it safe and just do a neutral or minimal eye makeup for bold lips but this is not the case here.

Step 1: prime the lids as always with an eyeshadow primer and then apply a reddish-coppery creme base to enhance the eyeshadow colors and also to make them stick on the lids even more.

Step 2: take a light silver-purple shimmery eyeshadow and pack it all over the lid area (use patting motion to avoid fall-outs)

Step 3: using a smaller shader brush, take a shimmery silver-black color and work it onto the outer-v area, for monolids you want to start for the outside to the inside bringing the color inwards to blend it with the lid color

Step 4: dip your blending brush into a light matte beige color to blend out any harsh edges and also use it as a browbone highlight

Step 5: to further blend in the black and lid color, take a medium tone shimmery purple/burgundy color and layer it between the light and dark color as a transition color and blend it in; if you didn't do a decent job of blending in the light purple and black together before, this will help you out :)

Step 6: take a little bit of sparkly/glittery white eyeshadow or pigment and gently top it over the light purple to make the eyes stand out and make them sexxxxyyyyy! ^^ hehe

Step 7:  take a black liquid liner to line the upper lash line and wing the end; then line the outer and inner 3rd of the lower lash line (this part must be very thin and precise); then take a black gel liner OR pencil and line the waterline and go over the outer and inner parts of the lower lash line to make them less harsh to slightly create bit of a smudge/softer effect.

- curl your lashes, apply your favorite mascara and put some falsies on if you need to're done with the eyes :D

Step 8: line and fill in your lips with a matching lip liner and then go over it with your fuschia lipstick to finish off the look; feel free to top your lips with a bit of lipgloss to make them shiny and plumped like Kim's lips (i forgot about it ahaha)

Finished Outcome :D very sexy and glamorous! And probably my favorite look out of the 3 that I'll be re-creating. I love this and had a lot of fun doing it - I hope you guys likey it too! hehehe :)

The hot weather makes me kinda miss my bob hair!?!?!?! >o<"
