Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

My theme for “Just Desserts” is “Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice.”  When Chrissy told me about this contest, I immediately thought of creating a bold lip.  Even though presentation is important with desserts, it’s all about tasting and eating!

It’s time to go food shopping so sadly I don’t have any sweets to use as props in my house.  I had to rely on just my makeup to create this look.  I did attempt to make a sugary looking lip but it photographed terribly!  All is not lost from my attempt, however.  My lips are nicely exfoliated after using sugar and sea salt trying to create a statement lip.

To create the whole look, I decided on a warm toned theme to compliment my cinnamon lip.  I began by priming with Makeup Forever HD primer in Green, since I was a little red today and wanted to cancel that out.  I also primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion.  I work this in with a brush to give myself an even playing field to work with.

I kept with Urban Decay and decided to work out of the Naked 1 Palette.  I swept a layer of Virgin from lash to brow.  I then added a layer of Ben Nye Crème Color in Sandy Rose.  If you aren’t familiar with these, they are a great and affordable alternative to the Makeup Forever Flash Colors.  There’s a ton of colors available and they wear well for a long time.  I chose the Sandy rose to get a more coral tone to my lid.  Over that, I went back to UD Naked and swept a liberal amount of Half Baked over my lid and used Smog in the crease, blended well.  I lined with Stila Stay All Day liner in Carbon Black and used Lancome Hypnose Mascara on my lashes.  For the bottom lid, I lined my waterline with Paula Dorf Baby Eyes and used MAC Powersurge along my lash line.

For my foundation, I used MAC Select Liquid in NW20.  I concealed with Stila Brighten and Correct in Light and swept it up towards my temple.  For my blush, I again used Ben Nye Crème Color in Sandy Rose to create a subtle monochromatic look.  I complimented that with Makeup Forever Uplight  #12 and finished with MAC Mineralize Powder in Medium.

I began my lip with Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Tiramisu.  I then layered with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Grandma.  I had never been a fan of using these on other people, but I loved it on myself!  On top of that, to create the cinnamon look, I used Westmore copper loose pigment  with just a hint of white in the center.  I used Stila Brighten and Correct and a little more lip liner to clean up my lip line, and I was ready to show off my dessert inspired makeup!
