Makeup Days

Good Morning my lovelies, how was your weekend? I've had a hectic few makeup days with lot's more to come; it's a bit exhausting hauling this bump around with my giant makeup kit but fun nonetheless.
I was making up some lovely ladies at The Great Rail Sale in Dublin yesterday and got to meet so many nice makeup fans (including some readers of Ellie Loves!) Here I am applying a beautiful burgundy lip shade to Nicola. I am crazy about this shade on someone with her colouring - it's a strong statement lip that feels a bit more fashion forward than the classic reds...

In case you are wondering, I kept her eyes very clean and bright with an oyster toned shadow. I shaded into the socket with a pale grey and lined with a black gel liner. The cheeks are warmed slightly with a pale matte peach tone and on the lips I lined with a Stila lip liner in no 12, I then added the Revlon matte lipstick in Wine Not and Lancome's Raisin Juicy Tube on top to give it a lift.

What do you think?

this is the perfect wine/burgudny stain lip. I think it looks fab on pale skin but keep being too nervous to try it myself. Definitley want a wee look at this revlon lipstick now though.
Stunning makeup!
