Pin-up Makeup 2015 | Lillee Jean
After a month of having the Bite Mimosa set, I finally delved into it! Rather using the actual lipstick, I topped off ABH Liquid Lip in American Doll with the Mimosa Lush Fruit Lipgloss! I must say the texture is phenomenal and non sticky- not to mention the fact coverage is on par with Mac’s lip glasses. This is the second red lipstick look I have posted on my blog! While my older look was focused more on the lips this makeup look evenly balances between Mimosa, and the fluffy lashes. Also, before I get into any details I would like to say this was a pleasure to apply (the liquid lipstick and lipgloss) compared to the OCC lip tar I had used in July. Mess free and minimum tree branch lips!
The interesting part here is American Doll is described as a blue red, and Mimosa is described as a warm red. Both clearly would clash, and they don’t! In fact I feel the duo is wonderful and Mimosa helped make American Doll less clashy with my undertones. Being I have neutral to golden tones it’s odd a blue’ed red works nicely however, about a month ago a Mac associate explained the ideology to me! She had said, “The reason the blue reds might look well on you compared to yellow tones is the same reason the shades red, green and white work well on Christmas. The opposites attract essentially!” I found this quite interesting and ever since she had told me this, it has helped me find the most PERFECT reds such as Mimosa, and American Doll.
For reference- Russian Red by Mac is DARKER than American Doll!
Mimosa is BRIGHTER than American Doll and Russian Red!
Aside from this, the eye look was rather simple and required far less products than the original “Red Lips and Sharp Wings” Tutorial. It also can be paired with ANY lip color and is super effective in brightening the eyes up!
