Ruby Red, Studs and Shreds

Hopefully some of you were looking for more posts about lil’ old me & my style on here. I’m super lazy when it comes to taking pictures of better-than-just-instagram quality. Instagram photos on other blogs don’t really grab me as a reader. It’s important for me to post things that, if I were the reader, would be enjoyable and interesting.

Spring quarter is coming to an end, and I’ve been working all kinds of things; a photoshoot for my textiles class, my new internship, job interviews, etc. Lately, I’ve been looking up all kinds of red lips after falling in love with the MAC x Rihanna collab shade Riri Woo (which sold out in 2 days). It’s coming back in a couple of days, at which point I will book it down to Nordstrom. But the other day, I got bored waiting for my friend Kayla to get off work, so I decided to put on a red pout myself using a cheap Revlon shade.

Disclaimer- after lining my lips, I AM AWARE of how gross they appear. But it was a necessary evil for achieving this look.

1)

Nothing on my lips except the foundation I lightly patted on. My lips are naturally really pigmented, so doing this makes the lipstick color truer & more colorfast

2)

The…liner. I use a black eyeliner (Kat Von D from Sephora) which actually blends into a pretty purple. I know it looks gross like this

3)

I applied a bright, candy apple red lipstick within the boundaries of the liner

4)

I blended the black inward into the red using a lip brush

5)

I deepened the color by adding a second coat of red & liner and added a very bright, cherry lipgloss in the center of my lips

Kayla and I hit up good ol’ Forever 21 later on and I picked up some fun summery pieces and even indulged in some… shockingly… acid wash. I am not a convert by any means, but I like this pair of shorts. Anyways, here’s ma newww dudz
