10 Oct George- Mahogany lips….
Working with two gorgeous girls over two different shoots I was just loving this mahogany lipped look I created for fashion label George. The look worked so well with talented designer Kylie’s amazing designs.
The models Casey and Belle are both absolute beauties and needless to say the dark lip looked nothing short of perfect.
On both girls I used Estee Lauder Pure Gloss Sequin Finish in ‘Purple Passion’ $42. This gloss is packed full with light reflecting particles which create a stunning sparkle and shine. Being a gloss and being a dark colour I was prepared for doing multiple touch ups and re-appplications. Considering that the girls each shot at least 60 different looks changing in and out of clothes all day and the lippy didn’t budge is nothing short of a miracle! I was amazed at how the colour lasted a rare feat for a gloss. I would definitely recommend this one if you’re looking for a darker colour that lasts, stays moist and has much more shine than lipstick.
These glosses are available in a range of colours. Click HERE to see which one suits you.
If you are tempted to try the dark lipped look I would recommend using minimal eye make-up. It could potentially be too much to pull off with a dark, smoky eye. Use it with lots of illuminator on the face and a few coats of your favourite mascara!
