You may or not be aware of this, but I’m a huge fan of Gwen Stefani. Like, HUGE fan!
So much so, that I recently bleached my hair a cool blonde with an 11 toner nonetheless, because her looks have inspired me so. For the record, I’m not one of those MTV loser wannabes who want to be just like their favorite celeb . I’m just influenced by her glamour 🙂
So with that out of the way (whew!), here’s a quick and easy way to get Gwen’s oh-so-sexy deliciously red, trend-setting lips (which are, by the way, VERY “in” this fall) :
Step 1: Buy Benefit’s d’finer d’liner ($18.00) to invisibly line your lips. Line your lips before applying the lipstick. This liner goes great with any shade actually and helps prevent the red lipstick from feathering (which basically means smudging).
Step 2: Buy MAC’s Russian Red lipstick ($14.00). Apply with a lipstick brush if you have one, but it’s not necessary. As a C6 quad with zero finger movement, yet decent wrist control, I can put my lipstick on straight out of the tube without a mirror even. Yeah, I rock What can I say? 😉
So, for $32.00 in makeup purchases you can now have exquisite Gwen-like lips, and be all uber-glamorous. Have fun kissing napkins, boyfriends, girlfriends, and love letters with your new shade! 😉
