MOTD: Purple Lips? I'll Show You How!

                          Hello everyone! it feels great posting after a long time. Hope you all are doing great. Lately, my life just seems to be... super busy? I guess it's all a part of life and hopefully all this stress and work will be rewarding some day! 

So, I was really confused regarding what post to do because this year my haul was INSANE. I can't do haul posts cause it is wayyyy too much! I also believe using each product for a decent time to review it. Hence, you would not see posts of latest products! :P

Just when I wanted to do a make up look, pictures of Aishwarya Rai from the Cannes festival went viral. I really liked one of her looks. However, in one looks, I was rather speechless. A really contrasting,bright,popping purple lip popped up my screen. I liked the fact that her look was experimental but something was just not right. There was a whole lot of negative comments but I believe she carried that lip with a whole lot of confidence. I think the look would have been perfect only if.......

The eyes were toned down a bit. I think the smokey lower lash line only made her look more tired. It looks a little..harsh? Idk. I just think that something went wrong in that look. Anyway, I recreated this look in a wearable way with a purple lipstick I had somewhere in my draw! After seeing her picture, I remembered that I have the exact shade so I came up with...

No, my skin is not that flawless, it's my camera. Also, I will never be going out with that lip colour cause I cannot imagine the amount of death stares that I will get. I went for matte skin, natural brows, highlight&contour slightly, natural falsies and soft smokey eye. Oh! and a good dose of inner corner highlight!

I think these type of make up look looks great only in pictures, youtube, instagram, blog posts. I can never really wear that out to be honest. I believe, as long as you have confidence and don't care about anyone, go ahead and do your thing! 

Hmmm, just wondering what to do for my next post? Recommendations anyone?
