Role Play

Todays look! I’m wearing a sparkly red OCC Lip Tar called Role Play, seen swatched here earlier today. To tie the eye look together with the lips I first applied a plummy lip pencil as an eyeliner on my top lid, smudge, then my smokey purple eye pencil a little closer to the lashline, then smudge again. It gives a delicate hint of plummy pink that flirts with the lip colour without looking matchy-matchy.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Moderncraft Collection Lip Tars

The OCC fall collection 2013 called Moderncraft is inspired by 1920′s cabaret looks and the old Berlinian art scene (See the entire collection + promo pictures over at Phyrras blog). Do I even have to tell you that I’m in love? The three products that I just had to try were the three darkest Lip Tars. The Lip Tar is heavily pigmented liquid lip paint that you apply with a brush, a modern cult product for us lipstick lovers.

I bought mine from the OCC website, had to pay customs though but it was totally worth it.

 

Role Play – Deep maroon with red pearl
Anita – Browned burgundy
Black Metal Dahlia – Blackened burgundy with red pearl

Scarlet

I’m so excited to wear beautiful bright lipsticks again, it’s definitely the best thing about fall! Getting back to fancier makeup habits you know. Here’s a scarlet red beauty from Make Up Store called.. well.. Scarlet! Matte, thick and ultra creamy, like a vintage dream. I paired it with my favourite eye makeup right now, a quick smudge of a this shimmery plum coloured pencil. I love what it does with my eye colour.

Glitter Gal “White Sparkle”

I know that I’ve shown you this beauty before, but I’m wearing it again and I just can’t stop looking at my nails! White Sparkle from Glitter Gal is a sheer off white shade with a red/yellow chrome and holo glitter. I’m wearing two coats in these pictures, three would be better if you want it more opaque.

Blood nails

After seeing this manicure at The Nailasaurus I just couldn’t keep from trying it out myself! I decided to make a deeper version with a nude base and two tones of red to make it look more coagulated.

Polishes used, in this order:
Zoya Skye (base)
China Glaze Ravishing Dahling (dark blood)
LAKA 61 (light blood)
