Just an FYI: If you ever want to take yourself seriously, don’t combine a headband with cat ears and pink glitter lips.
It’s just too hard. You’ll just be laughing at yourself all day long! 🙂
The cat headband is from Etude House, and it’s $5.20. Mine was a gift from a friend, but I love it so much that I’m ordering a backup (side note: Do you want me to review it? LOL!).
Without further ado, it’s #mbbinstachallenge time!
It’s week two, and this week’s theme is kitten flicks and glitter lips.
I chose to stick closely to the O.G. inspiration pic this time, so I drew sharp black kitten liner all the way into the inner corners but kept that center area on my lower lash line bare, for negative space.
I suppose I could have done something like a bronze or a gold liner in that area instead…
Ooh! That could be super cool. I might try that next.
I used Tom Ford’s absurdly expensive liquid liner, which is SO bomb (despite being absurdly expensive. I was reminded why I love it so much as I was trying to place it into the inner corners and needed to be super duper precise. It’s amazeballs.
And for my glittery pink lips, I used sticky pink MAC Big Baby Plushglass, then patted a multicolored pink glitter on top, concentrating it in the center of my lips.
I wanted big, chunky, flashy glitter, so I went with MAC 3D Pink Glitter.
Here’s something I learned while doing this look: If you pop glitter on top of gloss, don’t rub your lips together right afterward, because the gloss will mix with the glitter and bring down the sparkle and shine several notches.
As a bonafide lip rubber…I struggled with this.
I’m definitely gonna do this look again. I like the way it turned out. 🙂
Remember, for the #mbbinstachallenge, you don’t have to take the theme as literally as I did. You can riff and play and take it in whatever creative directions you want.
Don’t forget to #hashtag your pics with #mbbinstachallenge on Instagram, and tag me at @karenmbb so I can find you.
Looking forward to seeing what you cook up this week! Here’s what the lovely Holly @niteowlchef did.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Get ready to have your mind blown…
So I’m watching Strange Days with Angela Bassett and Ralph Fiennes right now (from 1995), which I’ve never seen before, and I just realized that young Ralph Fiennes looks exactly like Bradley Cooper.
They look like the SAME DUDE.
