The Face: #10 - Grey Smokey Eyes & Red Lips

As of yesterday, the Autumn/October weather has hit Austria and it's rainy and overcast all day while the temperature dropped at least ten degrees in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday. Now I love my dark vampy lipsticks in Autumn, but sometimes when it's really grey outside I want to wear something really bright to counteract the dreary weather. So yesterday, it was just one of these days where I wanted to wear a bright red lip- and of course, I automatically gravitated to MAC Russian Red for that ...

Since I had a lot of time to get ready yesterday, I whipped out quite a lot of products to put on my face to pass the time ... 

Base/Complexion: Catrice Velvet Finish Foundation - Essence Match 2 Cover Concealer (to clean up my lip line) - KIKO Natural Concealer 01 - Catrice Colour Correcting Mattifying Powder - Essence Metal Glam Highlighter (LE) - KIKO Loud Night Bronzer 01 Supple Satin Honey (LE; swirled together as a bronzer/blush mixture)
Eyes/Eyebrows: Sleek Bad Girl palette (shades marked with an X) - Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 palette (shade marked with an X + the white in the top right corner as a brow highlight) - KIKO Skinny Fit Kohl Kajal 01 Intonation Shell - Catrice Liquid Liner 01 Don't Leave Me - KIKO Ultra Tech Curve Mascara - MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme Deep Dark Brunette 
Lips: Essence Lip Liner 10 Femme Fatale - MAC Russian Red 

I really was in a mood for bright lips yesterday, so I did a little shopping (let's call it retail therapy) and ended up buying two other very bright MAC shades as well: All Fired Up and Flat Out Fabulous. They both come in a retromatte formula and they are- as the name of the latter suggests- fabulous! Reviews and swatches coming up very soon!

So what about you? Do you like bright lip colours to counteract the grey skies? :)


  1. Love the eye make-up! Very bold :)

    1. Thanks girl! :) 80% of my time my motto is "go bold or go home" haha :D

  2. This is a great look. I wear very neutral lips in the summer but like you I wear bolder colours when the sky gets grey. This is probably because I feel I can hide more easily if I have gone a shade too far.

    I really like the way you have counteracted a bold lip with a cooler tone on the eye :). Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on all fired up and flat out fabulous!

    1. Thanks so much! :)
      I'm kinda bad with neutral lips myself. I have exactly one nude lipstick that works for me right now and the rest of my collection is bold, haha :D
      Reviews will be up soon- so far I love them! :)
