Every Fall, berry lips are declared a trend. If they’re a trend every year, doesn’t that make them a classic? I think so. I love how berry lips look with flawless skin and three or four coats of black mascara. (If you’re feeling extra sultry add a smoky eye like in the photo below but I would never be quite able to pull that off.)
Over the weekend, I attended a little happy hour thrown by Jacey, where I met Miss Catt. Like a total maniac, I proceeded to completely flip out over her perfect berry lips. She’d achieved exactly the look (see the bottom photo) that I’ve been trying to create on my own. She graciously rummaged through her bag to tell me exactly the exact products she used. (I promptly ordered all three products the next day.) First, line your lips in NARS Damned, and then mix these two MAC lipsticks: Rebel & Desire. Done. You’re welcome.
If you’re feeling shy (as I often am) apply with a lip brush and blot… you’ll get a look more akin to the top photo. And if you want to vamp it up, apply directly from the tube.
