Red Lips and the Sock Bun

Hello everyone! It's been a crazy busy week! I'm writing this now with about an hour and a half to spare before I have to go to my college for an environmental festival. Oh, the things we do to pass our classes in college!

Anyways, I wanted to share a look I did yesterday that I never got to post. You can probably see it over in my little about me section to the right.


How I adore the sock bun! Quick, stylish, and easy! If you want to see my sock bun tutorial just click HERE

I always like to keep the face pretty clean when I do a red lip. I used the slightest hint of bronzer to contour and a little bit of blush, just to keep the main focus on the lips.

For the eyes, again, I kept them simple. A little bit of shadow, nude liner, and mascara.

The earrings were from a friend. I believe she got them at Claire's!

So What Products Did I Use?

  • Bare Minerals Primetime foundation primer
  • Bare Minerals Medium Beige Foundation (original)
  • Bare Minerals Summer Bisque
  • Physician's Formula Happy Booster Bronzer
  • Bare Minerals Blush in "The Aphrodisiac"
  • Bare Minerals Touch Up Mineral Veil
  • Rimmel ScandalEYES Nude Eye Liner
  • Bare Minerals "Nude Beach" eye shadow
  • Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume mascara
  • Wet n Wild Satin Finish lipstick in "Hot Red"
That's all!
Hope you enjoyed this look!

Until next time....
