Some other brands that have bright/neon lip shades are lines like
- Maybelline Vivid’s Collection
- Lime Crime Lipsticks and Velvet Lip Creams
- OCC Lip Tars (liquid matte lipstick)
They may not be all be matte but you can make any lipstick matte by dusting some loose translucent powder or even using your normal pressed/loose powder over top of your lipstick!
Try some shades like
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 110
MAC Candy Yum Yum (recently made permanent)
NYX Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink (Candy Yum Yum dupe)
I’d recommend getting your eyelashes tinted professionally because messing with dye and the eye area is pretty risky! However they do make at home eyelash tinting kits that come with all the stuff you need like safe guards to apply under the eyes and such.
Try something like the Godefroy 28 Day Mascara Kit (comes with enough supplies for 25 uses)
However tinting your brows at home is fairly easy!
- Hair dye
- Q Tips and or spoolie/clean mascara wand
You basically just apply the dye with the Q Tip or a clean mascara wand on the brow hairs, let sit for around 15 - 20 minutes and wipe off with a warm wash cloth. You want to apply the vaseline on the skin around the eyebrows prior to applying the dye to prevent any dye from staining your skin. You’ll want to use a hair dye a shade or two darker than your natural brow hairs, you don’t want to start off with anything too dramatic. They sell brow dying kits but using boxed dye from the store is a little more convenient and totally gets the job done.
After you’ve tinted your bows you’ll have natural looking fuller and more defined brows without having to fill them in! :)
Personally, I think a taped blending brush (217) is way more versatile than a fluffy blending brush (224).
With a tapered blending brush being thin and fluffy at the same time you can blend out eyeshadow, apply shadow in the crease, apply shadow on the outer v. Sometimes a regular fluffy blending brush is just too big!
A great cheaper option is the Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluffy, only $4!
You want a foundation that dries to a more matte, satin finish because anything that still looks “dewy” or doesnt completely dry/set will transfer a lot more easily.
I’d recommend using a foundation with a matte finish and not applying any powder over top. Powder is usually the first thing to transfer onto clothes and such because it’s just sitting on the skin instead of sticking to the skin like foundation. If you do want to use a setting powder use very little or use a translucent powder would be best because it’s colorless!
Try foundations like
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
- Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast Foundation
- Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation
- Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation
- Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation
All these foundations dry to a matte/velvet finish and have about a medium to full coverage :)
Check out NYX Prune! It’s a similar deep, oxblood purple shade.
