Disney’s Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie finally hit theatres this weekend!…
One of my favourite Fall looks is berry-stained lips. So for this week’s MAC Monday, I am showing off my fave berry lipstick, Rebel. And to get that perfect stained look in a few easy steps, let’s tune into another edition of MAC Instant Artistry featuring Gregory Arlt!
SOFT AND SIMPLE LIPS
Step 1: With a lip brush, apply starting in the centre of your mouth then blend in.
Step 2: Add a bit more concentrated colour to the centre of the lip for a bit more dimension.
Step 3: Soften edges with your fingertip for a blended, stained look.
(lipstick used in this video was Rebel!)
REBEL is described as a midtonal cream plum, although I would probably call it a wine berry. The formula is a satin, which leaves a highly-pigmented creme shine.
Applied using the video above, this gives a nice soft berry stain to my lips, and with the darker concentration in the centre it really does look like I’ve been eating a red popsicle!
For references, this is Rebel applied directly from the tube. It is quite a bit bolder and darker when you don’t use a lip brush.
The shade on my NW15 skin is really quite pretty and not too bold. Wear time is 5-6 hours, which is pretty typical with MAC Satin lipsticks. This did leave a bit of a stain after removal as well.
Now if you live in the Toronto area and want to get easy, everyday makeup tips from the pros IN PERSON, make sure to stop by the Toronto Eaton’s Centre this week!
