First up. A bold, deep berry red with slight brown undertones. Looks really good on Asian (yellow-undertone) skin, right?
Same lip colour with heavier eye makeup as compared to the picture above. I've always read that the only way to balance out a bold lip, is to go easy on the eyes. But I think we need to add on a little drama instead to balance the whole look. We don't have features as distinctive as our European counterparts so the heavier eye makeup would do us justice. (For those with smaller eyes) By heavier eye makeup I mean pile on the neutrals but skip the glitter.
You wouldn't want your lips to stick out like a sore thumb, would you? The trick is to add depth to eyes; this will create a more balanced look. Skipping eye makeup altogether will make the rest of the face look washed out so beware!
Another lip colour. This is a very, very dark plum with purple undertones. There is a difference between this and the lip colour above. It looks distinctive in my phone but on my computer screen it's rather similar. Anyways, this is much darker and especially at night, this looks close to a brown-black. But you'll still see some reddish tones due to the purple undertone. Gorgeous colour that brings out brown eyes!
And you'll never guess where these lip colours are from! You'll be pleasantly surprised just like I am!
