Peacock Lips


To go with yesterday's post, here's a fun and easy to do peacock lip!  Just don't rub your lips together!

Steps:

Exfoliate and moisturize your lips (I used Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub to exfoliate and Carmex to moisturize)

Outline your lips (I used NYX Lip Liner in Natural)

Fill in with black lip color (I used Make Up For Ever's Lipstick in #50)

Using 3-4 pigments, cover black lip color with peacock inspired colors (I used Make Up For Ever's Star Powders in 944, an iridescent blue, 957, gold with a green sheen, and Lime Crime's Magic Dusts in Lime Criminal and Shoe Addict

Using your finger, dab (don't rub) on some clear lip gloss (I used Urban Decay's XXX shine lip gloss in Ozone)

Newest Work

First off...so sorry to be slacking on the blog.  I've been keeping myself so busy lately with the hubby out of town that I haven't had time lol.  Good news is I have lots of new work to show for it :)  Here's one of the shoots I did about two weeks ago with photographer Alex Bussa and model Jordyn from Ford/RBA.  This showcased some of my best work yet!  LOVED this shoot!  LOTD's on each look to come :)

She's holding a hair flower that my friend Jenny brought my from Hawaii. 

Who doesn't love peacock feathers??
