Bold & Extreme

Hello lovelies,

I don't know about yall, but I love a bold red lip color. I think red lips don't have any specific time, occasion or rule in wearing. I wear a bold red lip with dramatic eyes, colorful eyes, simple or neutral eyes. A lot of people are afraid of red lips but I personally think red lips fit everyone one. All you have to do is keep trying to find that right red shade, with simple mix and blend as in any eyeshadow application. With this lip color look, I used about 3 different red lipsticks, that's the most I remembered, one was a matte Revlon lipstick, a WnW satin lipstick and a red gloss lip product. I did a lot of blotting and reapplying to get the right consistency and color I was looking for.
Play with your lipsticks and I dare ya, you will find something you love!

With my red lipstick look, I did a extreme winged liner effect. I used my WnW cream liner in black which I am loving now. That liner doesn't budge and last extremely long on the eyes.

Here are photos of my different takes on lip colors to this extreme winged liner look:

I decided to try purple lips as MAC doesn't have the infamous Violetta in stock that I've been wanting for the longest. So my take to get the purple lips was:
  • first moisturize my lips with my lip balm
  • then applied WnW cream eyeliner: purple color (yes yes!!!)
  • then from the 66 lip palette apply deep satin purple color on top and blend.


  1. the lips are banging. the lashes are sooo pretty! everything on point! and when you get violetta you will love it!

  2. Wow so sexy. Loving them lippies and the lashes are gorgeous. I picked up MAC Ruby Woo red l/s a few weeks ago and you are going to have me pull it out for a test run! I must admit, I don't do the red lips often but you are making me want to girl.

  3. GASP! Breathtaking! Get it girl! I will have to order Violetta from MAC Pro. I ordered it in February & they said it would be in stock soon. I got an email almost 3 weeks later saying they were not getting it back in stock. Meanwhile, the promo dept was still sending out emails featuring Violetta prominently in their Summer Looks. I was beyond disappointed! UGH You Kilt it in these photos girl. LOL

  4. this look is gorgeous!!
    neutral eyes with a bold lip = love!

  5. Red lips are timeless! always gorgeous:)

  6. Loving both of these looks. Before I scrolled down, I was thinking purple lips, but you pulled it off and its so pretty.

  7. Loved the red lips but the the purple are even better!

  8. I'm loving the lip color and I loooove the winged eyeliner on you. So pretty!

  9. Freaking A! I love both the top look with the red lip and the bottom with the purple lip. It's gorgeous and super 'dupable'. Lovely blush and fierce eyebrows as well.
