Cutting The Crease With MAC's Fresh Cut Palette

Hello my lovely ladies! ;)

I actually got all 3 of my kids to nap all at the same time! (that's rare lol) So of course, I wanted to play around with my makeup. I wanted to practice a cut crease look and experiment with a multi-dimensional/gradient lip and this is what I came up with. I'm happy with how it turned out. This was my first time using this palette so I was more than happy to break it in. I purchased this at a CCO while in Boston visiting my sister. Unfortunately we don't have CCOs here in Hawaii so you can imagine my excitement when I stepped into one lol. Hope you all enjoy it. ;)

Im really loving your lips! I always want a slightly pink hue but can never find it! is it all about the lip liner?

Tina Marie said...

So pretty! I really like how you did your lips.

Shannyn said...

I love it!! You are so gorgeous and I am totally saving a lot of your eyeshadow looks for inspiration. :)

LJ said...

A Fine Balance: Thank you hun! I don't always reach for lipliner but it does make a difference especially because my lips are a little dark and pigmented. But the lipliner I used is actually a light lavendar color and i just faded it into the orange lipliner. ;)

Tina Marie: Thanks doll! I love your blog! I was a lurker for a while (lol!) but i've always loved all of your makeup looks! ;)

Shannyn: Thanks hun! You're so sweet! I'm really glad I found your blog! ;)
