LUPITA + LIPSTICK
Guest Post for Powder Doom by Lydia

Hello!  I’m Lydia from the personal style blog Style is Style. I seldom wear makeup in my everyday life, but Powder Doom is inspiring me to experiment more! One product I am always into is LIPSTICK. Nothing is quite as satisfying as punctuating my face with a bold (or subtle) lip color. This post is essentially a fangirl homage to Revlon’s range of lipsticks + Lupita Nyong’o’s general amazingness. Clearly, Lupita is everything, and the girl knows her lip colors. I did three looks ranging from super easy to still pretty easy, using various Revlon lip products. I love the creaminess of their formulations, and the intensity of the pigments are excellent for drugstore prices. But enough about the lipstick…on to the looks!

The subtle spring freak!!!! I scream!!! Take notes. I have been obsessed with this agenda for months. Let us break down this manifesto:

  1. The foil: You want to use Stila’s foils for this. You will need to practice to get the consistency just right though — too much liquid it’s mushy, too little it’ll fall. Practice. It is worth it though. This is a worthy moment to work towards. 
  2. Shiny robot hair: Redken’s oil is fashion insider grail schemes and it is what literally every hair stylist uses backstage and on editorials for wetlook hair in all forms. Redken products forever. Their hairspray? Yes. Even sponsored shows sneak it in and just cover the brand up. Everyone uses it and it is perfect. 
  3. I’m not into brow powder right now, just brow gel. Tinted. Minimal brow tailoring. Full brows 2kforever.
  4. The subtle pastel lip. Now NYX is on board (finally). I have about…50…..pastel and rainbow colored lipsticks probably, so I will not cop, but they are cop worthy. My favorite pastel formulation is PBCO though, out of every one I’ve tried. And i’ve tried most. 
  5. No more eyeliner. Eyeliner is kind of boring to me right now it is all about the gradation smokey blur seduction, the foil, the intense mascara. Interested in the subtlety of face shapes — how you can change it with the right use of color and gradiation….. contours weirdly and perfectly and you become an alien. She’s not an alien yet in these photos but it is a good look nonetheless.When eyeliner calls, minimalist art moments are super cool as above. Why do cat eye when you can be a PAINTING?!?!

I luv beauty so much man. Miss Vogue April 2014 hit the mark.
