Makeup of the Day: An Oxblood Lip

Hello friends! I really liked the way my makeup turned out today, so I want to share it with you. I think I’m going to try to do MOTD posts once a week; I’ve been getting lazy and uncreative with my looks lately and this will help me try out new things. Anyways, today’s look revolves around a gorgeous oxblood shade of lipstick from Medusa’s Makeup. 

December is the perfect time of year for a red lip! However, I don’t like wearing bright reds as I don’t think they look the best with my complexion. Instead, I find myself reaching for darker, cool toned reds such as cranberries, oxblood, and burgundies.

Today’s lipstick is Medusa’s Makeup Metal AF Lip Gloss in the shade Cherry Pie. It’s marketed as a lip gloss, but it wears just like a liquid lipstick! It dries down fast, has a metallic matte finish, and is transfer proof. Plus, it’s vegan and cruelty free. It’s $11 over at Medusa’s Makeup. 


Look at how that lipstick pops! It’s one of my favorite lipsticks of all time.


I wanted to come up with a shimmery bronze eye look to go along with the oxblood lip. So, I reached for my Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries palette, which I received in a Boxycharm a couple months ago. This is why I love Boxycharm; they send full sized palettes!


I used Private Party as a base, Splurge in the crease, Stunner and Epic in the outer corner, and Twinkle all over the lid. I also patted my Colourpop Super Shock highlighter in Smoke ‘N Whistles over the lid, to lighten up the color and make it even more shimmery!


I love the way it turned out! It was bronzy, but without being too warm. I wanted something more muted, to go along with the dark red lip.


Looking back at these pictures, I realize I could have blended a little better. Oh well, I’m no beauty guru!


Here’s another look at all of my makeup! It just looks so glowy and festive. I used the Cover FX Illuminating Spray to give my face a soft, dewy look.
