Oxblood Lips with a Soft Cut Crease Eye–a makeup tutorial

oxblood dark red lips neutral eye makeup tuutorial

Today’s video tutorial is the look I was wearing in the Rusk Miracurl. As I mention in the video below I love dark lips and for us in the southern hemisphere its the perfect time to experiment with them. I paired the Oxblood lips with a soft cut crease eye in neutral browns to define the eye area trying not to take too much focus off the lips.

Olivia Wilde- Recreate her look with NARS

Another gorgeous look by NARS, Olivia surely does look effortlessly chic, except for the hair. I love the wispy fringe but other than that, is it just me or does it look like she was running late and forgot to do her hair?

“Olivia’s look was inspired by images she collected of what she refers to as ‘the French girl.’  I wanted her skin to be fresh and clean with eyes that extended outward.  Touches of rose gold and sheer pink-veiled lips completed her youthful coquette-ish look,” Spencer said.

Christina Hendricks- Recreate her look with NARS

Loving the red head to toe, glowing skin, doe eyes and curls. A very glamorous look for the Golden Globes. The only thing I don’t really like is how her hair is down, maybe if it was swept to the other side I’d be more of a fan of the look. Overall though think she looks stunning, but what’s new right!?!

“I had this vision of a big, doe-eyed, lashy look from the late 70s and early 80s. To keep it modern, I kept the skin dewy with shimmering eyes and added a pop of matte texture on the lips,” said Vanessa.

“My inspiration was the era of

the 60’s. I thought of Raquel

Welch and Bridget Bardot: 

the winged eye, the nude lip.

The dress is so classic, so we

wanted to be adventurous with

her eyes– giving a dash of color with the new 

Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil – 

and kept the lip nude with Tashkent Pure Matte!”
