In Search For an Orange Lip


Doing makeup this morning was a huge pain. I woke up and found a new cluster of acne on my face (I am sorry to admit that all photos below have been touched up with the spot healing tool on Photoshop; my skin is that bad).

My photos also kept turning out bad, and it took me forever to get them out. I’d woken up with my hair in a mess, and I kinda liked the look. It didn’t capture well on the camera though.

I thought I’d do an orange lip, since orange lips are summery and all that. I then pulled out my Maybelline Electric Orange, and then layered Bobbi Brown Canary on top for gold shimmer. I didn’t like the way it looked though, then took it off, and layered Clinique Heftiest Hibiscus on top, but it just looked bad. So I took that off too, and then used MAC CB96 instead. It’s not quite an orange, but it’s a coral. My ridiculously pink lips always means that oranges never look orange on me. D=

I also finally pulled out my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette! It’s been a while, and it’s about time that I used it again.

Makeup used


1) I used Urban Decay Chopper (shimmery orange) and applied it all over the lid with a fluffy brush
2) I used YDK (orange brown) on the outer third of the eye
3) I then used Busted (another reddish brown) on the crease of the eye, and blended that out
4) I used two mascaras this time. First I took Painted Earth SuperCurl mascara, and then I used Maybelline Rocket mascara on it
5) I lined my upper lashline with Maybelline Hypersharp Liner, a black liquid liner
6) I used a NYX Brow Pencil in black and darkened my eyebrows


1) I used the Happy Skin Second Skin Creme as a base
2) I then used the Jane Iredale Amazing Base Loose Powder for more coverage
3) I then used MAC Dainty (a pale pink blush with gold pearl) for a light dusting of colour on the cheeks


1) I used MAC CB96, an orange coral with gold pearl


Also, I went to Ikea today and bought a new friend! I got a small pot of False Heather (also known as Mexican Heather, and Elfin Herb). I love the last name. XD I also got it a matching purple pot.

    I hate acne. Right now I’m breaking out on my cheeks, which is just so random.

    I’ve been drawn to orangey reds lately, it’s so weird. Right now, my heart is wanting to get MAC Lady Danger!

    Hope your skin gets better soon, I find myself in the same crap situation today but… I’ll just pretend I don’t mind 😀 I love everything you put on your lips, I think if there would be a really horrible lipstick out there you would still manage to make it look amazing, since your lips are sculpted by gods of some sort. Much love from a pair of less perfect lips 😀 xx
