I’ve decided on calling this one “Leftovers”. My colors are inspired by my thanksgiving leftovers: gravy, stuffing, cranberry salad…What do you think? Does it make you want to go grab some cranberry sauce?
I also tried to subtly incorporate the color of the year, Marsala, into the look because my final look on January 1st will embody the color of the year for 2016, which they just announced today as two colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity
You’ll find that for a good amount of the holiday looks I’ll be using my favorite lipstick, which is the Nars Audacious Lipstick. It is a creamy, opaque matte lipstick formula that really delivers. Most of the time I won’t bother with a liner. It’s that good. If you haven’t tried them, they are worth trying. The first time I bought one, I wanted to throw all of my other lipsticks away! THAT GOOD!
*** I carefully applied this lip color straight from the tube as well as with a brush. The color is a little off here. Excuse my home depot clamp lights…they try. I would say that the color is actually a little warmer and deeper. This is an excellent shade for all skin tones.
I’m listing below the products that I used for this look. If you have any questions on application, just let me know! I am happy to answer. I was inspired by thanksgiving leftovers, I hope this look inspires you!
