DIY MAC Viva Glam

Ok so recently, I've been looking for a vampy, dark red lipstick like so...


 and after a recent trip into MAC, I almost bought the closest thing from their Viva Glam range when I saw it on all the assistants....

 BUUUUUT  two things happened:
1) I tried it on and although it was super vampy on them, it was drowned out by my melanin and didn't quite have the same 'pow' impact I was going for...

2) You know me, I can never pass up the opportunity to mix and match colours and so I went home aaannnnnd...BOOM!!!


WHO'S BAD?? ERRR NOT ME MATE, THAT'S NOT MY MIDDLE FINGER YOU NAUGHTY FOLK- JUST SHOWING YOU MY BRIEF EXPERIMENT WITH CRACKLY NAILS


sooo how did I do it??
with a mix of my rimmel 'Red Fever' [colour 230] and some black eyeliner 

BAM!!

you like??

ALSO on another note someone recently told me I look like gabby union. Obviously, I practically hugged him in response but then again I have also been told I look like
1) Kerri Washington
2) Kelly Rowland
3) Angela Simmons
4) Angelica Bell
- someone actually stopped me once convinced I really was her and I was just lying....

and basically every other black woman in the world.

Who do you guys think I look like??

Love, Peace and DIY lippies

Just stumbled across your blog..amazing!

2 questionss, you mentioned you dont use foundation at all? Your skin is stunning! What's your skin care regime? Also, what pencil do you use to fill in your brows??

Nicola said...

hey tee- thank you so much
1) no i really do not use foundation at all, i honestly hate the stuff and skin care wise, I don't do too much at all but i will do a blog post on it soon if you'd like...

2) i just use a brown barry m pencil or any brand for that matter- but the key for me is to use brown as black tends to appear really harsh.

hope this helps. if you have any other questions, feel free to send me an email :)
