Red Lipstick & Black Liner

is the name of one of my favorite blogs. It's also the look I did the other night. I NEVER wear red lips. I've literally worn red lips in public only one other time that I can recall, so this was a big deal as far as makeup goes :P I didn't want to bombard the world with a bunch of colorful eyeshadow as well, so I just did a super neutral eye with shadows from the amazing LE Maybelline Salsa Sun palette, and for the liner I used some Physician's Formula cream liners. I winged it out a teeny bit, not much because I am TERRIBLE at winging out liner, and I didn't want to mess it up. My lips were MAC's 'Swelter' Slimshine over 'A Classic' lipstain (which has sadly almost dried out from me not putting the cap on tight enough). Doing really red lips with the thick liner actually made me feel confident instead of self-conscious, I felt so adult and classy!
