Makeup trend: Black lip looks for real life

by Bionic Beauty on 05.Apr.2010 · 3 comments

I know black lipstick isn’t for everyone, but if you are interested in trying out the trend… here are some tips and looks to play around with. And you don’t have to be a Film Noir star or a goth chick to pull them off!

FacePurely Cosmetics mineral makeup in California Blonde mixed with PRIIA Cosmetic’s Complexion Enhancer in Angelic (basically my normal makeup). Topped with Purely Cosmetics’ Diamond Perfect Finish powder (I love, love, love this product!).
Cheeks – Light rose pink blush (Koh Gen Do in Coral Pink) topped with silver dust GlitterAll in Snow by Shiny Mama.
Lids – Silver eyeliner by, smudged out a bit, topped with Clinique’s Long Last lipgloss in Clearly Pink.
Lashes – Clinique’s new High Lengths mascara in black on top lashes (Full review soon, but in short it’s okay. Not as wonderful as Blinc, but average), silver/black glitter mascara (found on clearance at my local Sally Beauty storeGlitzy silver and black glitter mascara from Sally Beauty Supply stores!) on bottom lashes.

And now, onto the makeup looks!

Topped with Lancome’s Piha Black lipgloss (here’s a link to my previous article with loads of tips and looks using Piha Black lipgloss).

Want to know what I absolutely ADORED in 2009? I’ve gone through every skin care item, makeup product, trend, and ounce of hair care that I tested, or discovered, over the past year and came up with Bionic’s Second Annual “Best of Beauty” awards. And just for fun, I included some stuff at the end that’s not beauty related, ’cause you know… we’ve got to keep it balanced!

Makeup Look: In the woods

by Bionic Beauty on 10.Dec.2009 · 4 comments

I created this makeup look after spending Thanksgiving in the mountains of Georgia. Trees, boulders, and autumn colored leaves were everywhere! Playing off the browns and greens in nature, I used two of my favorite Milani eyeshadows- Java Bean (a cool-toned brown) and Clover (a medium true green), to create this mostly-neutral face.
