'Red Dragon' Look

'Red Dragon' Look

With the holidays right around the corner it gives me the perfect excuse to play with some glitter and red lips right? The funny thing is that I don't like either very much but I'm trying to step out of my little box. As you may know by now I'm embracing the whole glitter liner look which is so much fun to do without going glitter crazy. And the lips...well hello my dear Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in #75 Dragon...where have you been hiding?


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

On the entire lid and tearduct area I applied the matte ivory color from the Wet 'n' Wild Vanity Palette. MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the browbone area and for blending I used matte camel color from the Wet 'n' Wild Vanity Palette. MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
To define the crease I used On the browbone area and for blending I used matte dark purple brown color from the Wet 'n' Wild Plum Vanity Palette. MAC 217 Blending Brush
For highlight I used the matte ivory color from the Wet 'n' Wild Plum Vanity Palette. MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used the NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown) - OUTER. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner topped with MAC Antique Gold Glitter (with MAC Eyeliner Mixing Medium) - MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush..
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes.


For my lips I used Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in #75 Dragon (intense blood red). Freakin' awesome red btw!


I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion and Tarte Clean Slate Face Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch in #5 and MUFE #14 Full Cover Concealer - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.

I used MAC Peaches Blush (matte peach) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight - MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush.

  15. Thanks Miss Merx. I think simple neutral or smokey eyes go well with red lips. And the glitter definitely adds some spice. I have so many glitters to try out! Can't wait!

    Thanks Manda. I know right? I'm not big on glitter and bold lips so it takes some getting used to. I love the glitter liner option tho because it's customizable and Chanel Dragon is the ultimate red lipstick!
