As a make-up artist and make-up fiend in general, it’s a given that I absolutely adore make-up in all its splendid ways. I especially like unconventional looks in a minimalistic format.

I especially like unconventional looks in a minimalistic format. Think of a clean, flawless looking face, and then an über crazy, bold lip. With gold leaf or something. That’s more my artistic style, especially when giving carte blanche on others, but when we’re talking about personal make-up routines, I tend to go for more crisp, minimalistic looks most days. Honestly, as long as my brow game is strong, I’m content. So it’s only natural that my second make-up recap is of a look I love sporting, simple and clean as it is.

Extra: I applied Mocha first with a MAC 231 and then lined the lips with Whirl, slightly overdrawing on the top. I also outlined the edges with MAC Blanc Type using a MAC 212 liner brush for more defined, crisp looking lips. (I’m OBSESSED with this combo. Hashtagobsessed.)
