Sinfully Bold

I went really bold with my lips today for Linea's Pin-up/Biker Babe contest. Well, bold enough for me at least. I curled the ends of my hair somewhat as well. There are a lot of pictures so let's get to it!

Pin-up Girl

I was looking for a pie or cookies on a plate for one of the poses. Pin-up girls in the kitchen with their baked goods (usually burnt) always catch my eye, but I couldn't find anything, so I posed with my favourite kind of apple.. Granny Smith apples! The contrast of the red lips and the green apple remind me of Snow White. The only thing I need is an evil smirk & I'm set to give the innocent little girl the poisonous apple muahaha!

Products used for the Pin-up girl look

1. MAC Mylar eye shadow
2. MAC Saddle eye shadow
3. Dark brown eyeshadow from an old Lancome palette from the Middle East
4. Maybelline Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black
5. Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara
6. Bonnebell eye Definer in A17 Platinum (on the waterline)
* I had my Softlips lip balm (not in the pic above) on before I applied the lipstick
7. A red jumbo lip pencil. It doesn't say what brand it is. I don't wear dark coloured lipsticks so I went through my mum's makeup drawer & found it hehe.
8. Caboodles Kiss & Tell lipgloss (This is a clear lipgloss that I never use so I just dabbed a little over the lipstick because it looked too matte & dry. Now it's all red & gross!)
9. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Honey
10. NYX Blush in Dusty Rose
11. A beige shimmery blush that I got in a makeup kit that someone gave me. I can't remember which company it was.. I took the tag off

Now for the second look...

Biker Babe

I had a pic with a bandana, but didn't like it that much, so the alternative was a toothpick in my mouth. To get this look I added 5 things to the pin-up look: a cropped, black demin jacket; a toothpick; black eyeshadow on the corners for a smokey eye; black eyeliner on the waterline which didn't show up that well; and a darker lipstick over what I had on already from the pin-up look. You can see how adding/changing up a few things can change your entire look!

Products added for the biker babe look

1. Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipstick in 360 Cherry Brown
2. MAC Carbon eye shadow
3. Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner in Black

Wow that took a while! I love how all these contests help me challenge myself & try things I wouldn't usually wear & I have to say I'm liking the darker lips I had on when I was the biker babe wannabe :)
