The perfect nude Lip for a Smokey Eye

You’ll never guess how I spent my morning…  I spent it playing with lots of lipsticks, lip glosses and lip liners. I experimented on Erica, one of our makeup artists and estheticians. She is a very beautiful, blonde who wears that sexy, smokey eye quite well. Erica and I got to talking about the perfect nude lip to wear with a really dark, exotic smokey eye. After we mutually agreed that soft and plump was the way to go, we delicately pushed up our cashmere sleeves and got to creating that lip.

The first issue that bothered us was once you get this lip, whatever that lip is…. Well, it wears off so soon. Nude? Right – never lasts long. Erica complained, “I love an intense smokey eye, but it always seems to be a challenge to find that perfect nude lip color that will actually stay on without the inconvenience of always having to worry if there’s a mirror close by so you can ‘check yourself out’ every 5 minutes.” 
Step 1.
So here’s where you start for that perfect long lasting lip. “Vincent Longo Fresh Water Rose Pearlessence Lip/Cheek Gel Stain.” Wow! That’s a mouthful. Yes and this stain is pale, shimmery, sexy and LASTS.

Step 2. Next, to create the plump. You need to use a lip liner that is a warm pale chocolate. We used the Vincent Longo Lavender Light/Coco Fudge Lip Liner.  The Whirl Liner from Mac Cosmetics works well too. With just a light touch gently line the rim of your lips with the Coco side of the VL liner and then line again and blend in with the Lavender Light. Leave the center of your bottom lip empty.

Step 3. Now, for the gloss… You’ll want to fill the center of your bottom lip and a fill just a little bit on the upper lip with Vincent’s Starlet Pink Diamond Lip Gloss. Nars makes the Lipgloss/Lipstain in color Stolen Kisses/Pampa that works great too!

And, that’s one gorgeous nude, pouty, sexy lip!!!

Here is the Perfect Smokey Eye to Go With It
