Scarlet Ibis...

Hey Ladies,

 I promised from my previous post to share a makeup look with M.A.C Scarlet Ibis from the Marilyn Munroe Collection. I complimented my bold lip colour  with contoured cheeks.The trick I utilized to make this lipstick work for my skin tone was basically using a brown lip liner to line my lips, followed by a deep red liner to fill in the rest  and then I slowly built up the colour with the lipstick.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation-Cappuccino and Caramel
Milani Pressed  Powder- Pecan
Sacha Blush  Perfect Bronze ( contour)
Jordana Blush - Coral Sandy beach ( gives the perfect glow)
Black Radiance Mosaic Bronzer- Summer Shimmer ( Holy grail)-Highlight
Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream- Brows and eyeshadow base
Elf  Eye shadow duo- Butter Pecan 
Maybelline Flasies Flared Mascara-Blackest Black
Sassi Eye lashes ( 747/M) 
Jordana Black eyeliner- waterline
Brown Liner
NYX long Lip pencil Cabaret
MAC Scarlet Ibis

Thanks for stopping by and I hope my WOC readers found this post helpful.
