It is Makeup Monday- as promised last Monday, I am revamping my series and today I have a classic perfect red lip with the smallest winged eyeliner that you have ever seen- total wearable for an oldie like me. I have a fabulous trick that the winged eyeliner looks good, even if you have small hooded eyes like me! โœŠ

OK- on the picture below you can see, how little I extended that eyeliner. Really just like 5mm and I simple extended the natural direction of my lash line.

Let’s see that a bit closer, shall we?

Alright: here is the trick: I tightlined (lined the upper waterline). I never lined on top of my lash line! The reason is: when I line on top of my lash-line, it makes my eyes look even smaller- so I try to keep out of there with darker colors. My eyes are small enough, I don’t want them to look even smaller.

So I only did my tiny wing at the corner on top of my lash line!  Got it? This is a great trick for “hoodies” like me! Just tightline and create ONLY the little wing on top of your lashes! Nobody will see this litte trick! The transition looks totally smooth. ๐Ÿ˜

And here comes the makeup that I used for this makeup look!

1. I applied a sample of the EltaMD UV Elements Tinted Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 (I really enjoy it! It is very hydrating, with a light tint to it. It won’t cover up bigger issues though but I like it on natural makeup days. Love that it contains SPF 44! However, it is maybe a little tacky.)

2. I concealed my under-eyes and a couple of red spots (on my chin mainly) with the L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer. This cheapo does it all! It provides a natural-looking coverage, evens skin tone & covers dark circles! And that for under $5! Yes please!๐Ÿ‘

3. I used my Too Faced Chocolate Bar (Sephora // Ulta) and applied the light color (“White chocolate”) all over my lid. I used the taupe color (“Milk chocolate”) on my crease, on my lower lash line as well as on my brows.๐Ÿซ
Today I used only 2 colors of my Chocolate bar!

 4. I used the Butter London Wink Eyeliner to tighline (my upper waterline). I used the Rodial Liquid eyeliner for the little wing (the felt-tip is fabulous to create that little wing).

5. I applied my favorite Mascara: the Too Faced Better than Sex (Sephora // Ulta)  (still have a couple lash extension left-overs! Going into 7th week now of having lash extensions! ๐Ÿ˜…)

7. I lined my lips with a red lipliner by essence (discontinued, try instead a Milani lipliner) and filled my lips in with the Nyx Matte lipstick in Perfect Red! And that is what it truly is: THE PERFECT RED! Do I need to say more? ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’ƒ

 8. I applied this beautiful blush by No 7 (in Peach Velvet) to give my cheeks a fresh healthy look!

And there you go! Perfect red lips with a winged eyeliner!
