There are different kinds of ombre lips, but this is the version that I like doing the best. It makes the lips look more plump and pouty. This post is a demonstration of how I do it and I just used the colors in my collection. Feel free to use any 2-3 lipsticks in your collection.
Dark colors aren't always everyday friendly, but I still like to wear them. Doing lip ombres like this allow me to wear dark colors, but they aren't as dramatic.
For the lightest color, I made sure to use a kind of glossy color because the shine helps with the illusion of fuller lips. Lip gloss could even be added to the very center of the lips to draw in even more light.

Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Chocolat is described as a "shimmering bronzed brown" but it has some gold in it. It contains 0.077 ounces / 2.2 grams of product and retails for $20. This product can be used dry or wet and when it is wet, the color is darker and more brown and fits the name "Chocolat" more.

The NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm and Laguna comes in two sizes. I will be reviewing the mini size. Each powder contains 0.08 ounces / 2.5 grams. Orgasm is a pinky coral blush with a very fine golden shimmer and Laguna is brown with gold shimmer.
I've always heard about these two shades, but I could never bring myself to buy either the full size or the duo palette because of the price. I wanted to find possible dupes before buying these powders, but I finally got them. I believe the mini size came out about a year or two ago and so I decided to get it since it was also cheaper. After using it for the past couple of days, I can see why these shades are so famous.

I'm posting this almost a week late. Sorry :D I also missed a lot of days because my skin has been breaking out and so I've been having a makeup break.
I've been favoring thicker liquid liner lately. I think it just looks so nice and it also defines my eyes. I fell in love with some products again after this week. I forgot how much I loved Rimmel London's Show Off Lip Laquer in Aurora. It really brightened up my face and fit well with the nice weather.
L'oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in 333 Golden Sage contains 3.5 grams / 0.12 oz. of product and is a metallic and shimmery khaki color with a very slight yellow in it. This product is a pressed pigment that can be applied wet or dry.

I've seen some bloggers talking about The Body Shop's Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder and I decided to try it out. The shade I chose was 04 Deep Matte and it is the darkest shade out of the four shades available. This product retails for $19 and its claims include giving the skin a bronze matte finish.

Based on the description on Asos.com, this product is supposed to be smudge and waterproof.

I wanted to start weekly posts about some makeup looks I've done in certain weeks. I just started a new quarter on the 26th of September and so I'll be posting less than usually. This way, I'll have at least 1 post each week. I do like keeping my makeup pretty simple on most days, but I thought it'll be fun (or maybe just for me) to document them and to show what products I've been trying out / loving. I'm still seeing what format I like the best, so please don't mind the different formats for now!
