Russian Doll lips

 Today was Russian lip day. I've seen this around quite a bit recently, but i wasn't sure about it. After trying it out, I can say thats its definitely something you would wear as part of a costume - it would look strange if I wore it on the streets. However, I really had fun doing both the hair and the make-up, and its something I would recommend to everyone. Although I stayed with the conventional red lips, I think next time I'll try it with colours that are more exciting, something like purple or orange. Actually, I would love to see what effect black has when the lip is only partially covered. So many looks, so little time!!

First try - Smoky Eye

Today I tried the smoky eye for the first time, and it looked good with my bathroom lighting, but on photo the results were not as striking. I definitely need to try this again, but perhaps with another lip colour? This looked good on Taylor Momsen, both with red and neon pink lips. I tried editing my pictures and here's the result:


Red lips

Next on  my list (actually, it's the first thing I thought of) were bright red lips. Somehow I don't think I would wear this on the street, but I definitely think it suits me, so I'll wait to be older to wear it casually. Here are some pictures:
