Make up doings in my absence

I’ve been away for awhile, clearly. I was getting busier and busier at work and I just didn’t have the mojo to blog. I still don’t really have it, but I’ll be posting some stuff now and then still.

So in my absence from the blog I also haven’t been taking many photos of my makeup, though I wore about the same amount of makeup as before.

I’ve been really into red lipsticks these days. My favourite way to wear them is super clean. In the first look, it’s just a ton of foundation for the appearance of dewy, perfect skin (had to fake it since my chin area is still quite bad at the moment.) Lots and lots and seriously shitloads of contour (always subtle because it’s me), brows, just a touch of highlighter to glow like an angel from the heavens and lots of mascara. That’s it. I think it’s me but dialled up to 11, with an eye searing red lip. This is, of course, my beloved Dragon Girl in all its glory. Super bright red with a definite pink glow. It’s a very unique and standout – there was one time I was at the cashier at my mum’s shop, and the girl’s lipstick looked so familiar – and true enough, it was Dragon Girl. In this photo, it sure looks like Dragon Girl on Lea Seydoux too.

For this look, I was testing out Cherry Red, which is definitely not my preferred red from Besame Cosmetics. It was still pretty nice I guess, but a little dark for me. Also very clean, didn’t even have foundation on, just a bit of excess Cherry Red tapped on my cheeks for blush. Holy shit is this pigmented, if using it as blush just tap the slightest amount. Still don’t feel very passionate over it, but it’s alright.

Might be blogging a little more from now on, and sporadically, but there will be posts when I feel like it.

  1. I’ve been loving your red lipstick FOTDs on Instagram! I’ve found myself wearing red often this fall, too, which is unusual for me. For what it’s worth, I don’t think Besame Cherry Red is too dark at all. I might even like it a bit more than Dragon Girl on you!
