Glamour Puss

Hey Girls,

This is a requested look from my cousin. She wanted me to do a neutral eye with a smokin' red lip! So, here it is! This is one of my favorite makeup looks to do on other women and myself. It's fun, fast & glamorous. It looks much more difficult than it is. The dramatic red lip and false lashes add the drama that makes this look seem intimidating. Don't be scared....just try it! Also, this really is such a universal look. You could wear it out to a party, dance, nightclub, on a hot date (Valentine's Day is around the corner!). It would also be a beautiful bridal look! I'll tell you exactly what I used on myself and how.Use what you have that's similar if you don't have exactly what I used. Make it rock for you! ;) P.S. Gabby, Hope it's everything you wanted & more!


*As always, moisturize :)
*Mist face with MAC Fix+
*Mary Kay Full~Coverage Foundation in Beige 302 applied with a MAC 180 brush
*Maybelline Mineral Power concealer in Fair
*Set concealer with hourglass Oxygen powder in No.1 using a small tapered brush
*Powder face with Make Up For Ever Duo Mat, shade 302 using a Sephora Professional brush #55 (Silver handle)
* Apply Benefit's HollywoodGlo as a highlight to cheeks. Any liquid highlighter will do.
*Set highlight with Lorac Spotlight in Perfectly Lit. Any powder highlighter will do.
*Lorac blush in Soul. It came in their Croc Palette. It's a burnished rose color.
*Eyebrows. Maybelline Expert Wear brow pencil in Blonde. *tip* Make your eyebrows as arched, sharp, and angled as possible! It's key for this look :)
*Set brow pencil with coordinating powder...eyeshadow works too! I used Benefit's Brow Zings palette in Light.


*Urban Decay Primer Potion
*MAC Brule from brow bone to crease.
*MAC Nylon on lid and bring it down around the tear duct with a pencil brush
*MAC Symmetry in crease.
*MAC Espresso in outer 1/3 of crease to give just a little more depth.
*Urban Decay's Polyester Bride (glittery white) on top of Nylon in the inner 1/3 of eye to make it pop!
*Kat Von D Tatto liner in Trooper. Wing that eyeliner! It's essential for this look :)
*Line water line with a white pencil. I used Benefit's High Brow! I like it because it's more of a fleshy tone.
*Stila Major Major Lash Mascara in Black 01.
*False lashes!! Mine are some cheap-O ones from Walmart during Halloween. I cut them in half and used only the outer portion. *Tip* Don't skip this part ;)


*MAC liner in Whirl
*MAC lipstick in Viva Glam Cyndi! (My favorite wearable Red, EVER!)


  1. Love the lashes and the fun headband :-)

  2. Your skin looks so dewy and pretty. Love love love LORAC spotlight!

  3. @ Tracy~ LORAC is one of my favorite makeup brands! Their lipgloss is creamy, rich & smells great, their eyeshadows are so silky and blend easily, their blush is nice and pigmented and blends well also. Fabulous line! Have you tired their concealer/highlight duo wand? It's great too :)
