This is my entry into the Purple Lab Foundation contest. My “foundation of style” would definitely be a red lip and/or cat eye. Pictured is an extreme version of what I normally don, but ever since I can remember, I’ve made it a point to wear some form of cat eye makeup (whether it be a very subtle light brown or extreme bold black, as pictured). Red lips have always had a special place in my heart, too. You can throw on a nice rouge lip and no other makeup and walk out the door with confidence. Here (in the first and second photo), I vamped it up and combined the cat eye with the red lip for a very bold, very now look. My personal style is laid back with an edge and always incorporates vintage; 99% of my wardrobe is vintage! My adoration of cat eye makeup and bold red lips is a byproduct of my love for all things vintage. I would incorporate Purple Lab’s cream blush subtly on the apples of the cheeks; Blush really brings the whole makeup look together. With red lips and cateyes, I usually choose a peach-hued blush, as I did with the look in the main photo.
*I’ve included photos of a few looks that incorporate cat eyes and/or red lips.
