Senior Make Up Artist for MAC Cher Webb talks blackberry lips.
There is nothing sexier for winter than a gorgeously luxurious blackberry lip… If you are looking for a soft berry shade lipstick for daytime go for textures that are slightly glossy. This will be more natural and perfect for day makeup. Apply your lipstick with your finger by patting it onto the lips so it looks like more of a watercolour stain – that was a big trend backstage this season. Try MAC lipstick in Rebel, a beautiful rich berry colour.
For a bold, high impact lip for an evening look… Start by adding a deep lip pencil all over your lips before you apply your lipstick. This will add depth to the color and shape. Try MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil and then apply MAC lipstick in Cyber for a pout that stands out! Also, keep a clear gloss in your make up bag – by adding the glossy texture to your lipstick you are giving it a whole new dimension and it dresses up your look instantly. You could also add the gloss to your cheekbones for some high shine highlights.
When wearing a deep lip, focus on creating a perfectly flawless skin… Skin that looks polished and smooth will make your lips stand out even more. If you have an oily skin go for a matte foundation, try MAC Studio Fix Powder for amazing results. If you have a combination skin go for a liquid foundation to give you a natural glow.
For the eyes, go for a more minimal approach… As the lip is the focus, go for soft bronzy gold shades that will compliment blackcurrant colour lip. A black slick liquid liner with a small flick would work with this look, giving definition to your eye shape and length to your lashes.
