Guest Post | The Perfect Purple MAC Lip

My next guest post is from the lovely Rachel preaching her winter berry lips!
When Joanne said I was welcome to guest post on her blog I was over the moon and immediately began to think about the kind of post I’d like to write. I wanted to bring something a little different to Joanne’s blog that stayed true to my personal style and so, after reading about her phobia of bright lipstick, I knew this would be a good opportunity to talk about my love of the bold, statement lip. Hopefully I can convince her that a purple pout is perfect for the Christmas season!
To create this look I applied MAC’s lip liner in Nightmoth, outlining my lips and gently colouring them in. This particular liner is one of my absolute favourites – the rich, vibrant plum colour is so striking and the creamy consistency makes it easy to apply and really long lasting. I then applied MAC’s lipstick in Rebel which blends with the liner to create the perfect ‘vampy’ lip. This is definitely a bold, statement look and so I think it’s important to keep eye make up simple –just a flick of eye liner and a few coats of your favourite mascara.
And there you have it! My favourite make up look for the Christmas season. I can’t wait to style this with a festive sequin dress and a glamorous faux fur coat!
I really hope you’ve enjoyed this post. If you’d like to read more from me then check out my blog Rachel’s Journal!
Merry Christmas everyone!
How perfect is that colour on Rachel?! I wonder if I'm brave enough to attempt to pull it off...
 ...I can just imagine me walking round town, purple all over my teeth and looking like I drank too much red wine...but one can dream of the perfect pout, eh?
Thanks again Rachel for guest posting for me! Don't forget to check out her beautiful blog, Rachel's Journal.
