FOTD: Bare Eyes with Ruby Lips

Hello everyone! First of all, I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my other half, my best friend and husband! (all the same person-haha). I love this man more than to the moon and back! We celebrated his birthday over the weekend and had so much fun!

Okay, on to the deeper things in life..makeup!

Today I'd like to share with you my FOTD (face of the day); which is the makeup look I've been enjoying wearing lately. I don't know if it's the fact that it saves me time because there is no eyeshadow to apply or the fact that it looks so very classy, but I just love the combination of the clean, bare eyes (no eyeshadows or brushes needed for this one!) with dark red lips.

You can be the judge:








I was never to keen about skipping eyeliner; I felt it made my eyes look smaller or like something was missing. But somehow, pairing the no eyeliner, no eyeshadow eyes with a deep toned lip made everything even out for me. So I now have a new perspective on the idea and have evolved from my signature winged eyeliner look. It's just very refreshing to me! And so very opposite from the smokey eye I usually love to rock.

If you want to rock this look too, it's pretty simple: all I did after I applied concealer (to neutralize my lids) was set it with a powder, then I applied my M.A.C Paint Pot in Soft Ochre, and then set that with a powder again (these layers ensure no creasing throughout the day). If you don't have the paint pot, it's okay; you will still get the same results from just concealer. Then just apply a dark lipstick of your choice! Wasn't that easy?

And this look will never get boring because you can switch up your lip color; Spring is just around the corner and a bright berry pink would look amazing worn like this! If you don't like a bold color on your kisser, a nude or soft pink would lend this a more natural feel.

Lip products I wore for this look (in order):

- E.L.F Lip Stain in Crimson Crush ( I like to apply a lipstain before a bold color because it makes it last so much longer! These pictures were taken 4 hours after I applied my lipstick.
- Jordana Lipstick in Eggplant (gently dabbed)
- Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in True Red

Thank you so much for reading! And now, it's your turn; what makeup look have you been really into lately?
