"Champagne and Red Velvet" Party Look (MAC Russian Red Lipstick)
—-
MAC Russian Red is one of the most gorgeous neutral crimsons around. And I have the driest lips, but it still feels quite comfortable to wear. In real life, it’s actually deeper and more intense than the pictures show.
—-
Step 1: Keep the face very dewy and glowing, by applying a champagne (pale ivory-gold) shimmer all over the cheekbones, brow bones, down the bridge of the nose, and on the cupid’s bow. I used TheBalm’s Luminizer compact.)

—-
Step 2: On the lids, apply the same champagne shade (if you don’t have Luminizer, try MAC’s Retrospeck), packing color down the center using a finger for a more metallic effect.

—-
Step 3: Apply a bit of contour to the outer and inner corners of the lids, using a matte brown and a soft blending brush.

—-
Step 4: Using a black gel liner, very generously coat the bottom lash line and extend downwards for a smudgy, rock star reverse-line.

—-
Step 5: Apply black mascara on the top lashes to finish the eye.

—-
Final touch: With the eye done, leave the cheeks bare except for the subtlest contouring around the cheekbones, and then swipe on rich, matte red lipstick.
