Black Lips (Goth/Black Friday)

About two months ago I had a vintage eyeshadow compact my grandmother gave me that was very cute and girly and among the light colored shadows was an old eyeliner gel formula. It was not very useful since it creased and was very oily so I tried out the black lips trend with a smokey eye to match. It was a pretty gothic and dark look to try out and I debate whether I truly like it or not. Regardless, I'll never wear it out in public, its just too much bold for me to handle! Even though I didn't hunt for bargains on Black Friday I figured I'd post a tribute to all those dedicated shoppers today and hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! :)

Jubilee/British Flag Lip Art!

For this fun lip art look I exfoliated, moisturized, and concealed my lips as a based and put white eyeshadow all over. Then I used a thin angle brush to add in the red and blue stripes of the flag. I had seen my school's theatre production of Jane Austen's 'Sense & Sensibility' over the weekend and felt inspired to do this idea. It wasn't the easiest thing to do but it was fun and silly throughout the process :)
