Pat McGrath’s Lust 004: The Semi Multi-Dimensional Lip

From afar, this lip look may not seem as dimensional as it is. But lucky on-lookers up-close would be able to see that I created my own playful pucker with the Pat McGrath Lust 004 Blood 2 lipstick and a mixture of the gold and red glitter pigments.

Easy as 1-2-3. After applying the lip color, I dabbed my middle finger into the red and gold glitter, and lightly patted it on my lips. A final touch-up with MAC’s Pro Longwear lip pencil in Bittersweet gave me a little more umph.

The Dos:

-Create an even face with your favorite foundation. I used my hands to apply CoverFX’s Oil Free Foundation in N110.

-Tightline your lids with a good liquid liner. I used L’Oreal’s 24HR Infallible Super Slim liner.

-Go barely there with your eye shadow. I used a brown shadow by Make Up For Ever and, using a flat brush, added Pat McGrath’s Lust 004 gloss on top for that runway look.

-I dusted TopShop’s Chameleon Highlighter in Mother of Pearl on the apples of my cheeks, up to my temple.

-Add a mauve blush to the mix for a rich, all-around final face.

-Add a translucent powder if you want to look matte. I purposely didn’t mattify my skin, but of course, it’s your choice.
