At last Monday’s YStyle event, my friend and I were both running late for the show. We both said we had nothing to wear and would just come “simple”. She always looks fantastic I don’t think she had a real big problem. I, on the other hand, had gotten used to the professional services of makeup artists from my show. But this time, I knew I had to do my own makeup (which is usually subtle and under-done).
As you know from the last post, I found an old Joey Samson dress. Initially I thought of wearing pants and a diaphanous top. So since I had a lovely dress, I had to take my makeup a notch higher. Good thing I just got a gift package from my friends at MAC Cosmetics. I played with the new stuff.
When Ingrid texted asking what I ended up wearing, I said, “An old dress, lashes and pink lipstick.” And there it is, my new matte bright fuchsia lipstick from this season’s Retro Matte collection. It is called All Fired Up.
This one is Flat Out Fabulous. Looks similar to All Fired Up but it’s more a bright plum matte. I have to say it takes a while to get used to wearing matte lipstick again. I always end up feeling like my lips will crack in the end of the night. The key is to really moisturize your lips way before you apply the lipstick. And always use a brush!
Check out the lineup of Retro Matte lipsticks- Steady Going (light pink matte), Runway Hit (light nude matte), Dangerous (orangey red matte), Relentlessly Red (bright pinkish coral matte), All Fired Up (bright fuchsia matte), Flat Out Fabulous (bright plum matte), Ruby Woo (very matte vivid blue red) and Fixed on Drama (rich wine matte). They all come with corresponding Pro Longwear Lip Pencils.
