Tutorial: Hot Pink Lips & Glossy Eyes

I have been so busy my pretties, but I feel like I have been neglecting you so here is a quickie (tutorial, that is).

The look is very simple – hot pink lips with simple, glossy eyes.

I used:

Illamasqua Lip Pencil in Spell
Nars Lipgloss in Triple X
Nars Lipstick in Schiap
Purple Dot Lip Brush
Illamasqua Eyeliner Brush

All you need really is a pink/red lip liner, a hot pink lipstick and clear gloss.

First, get a lip scrub and slough off any dead skin – bright lip colours really show up dryness. I used a random scrub, this one is garden botanika, but you can even use a bit of sugar mixed with your lip balm:

Lips ready:


Draw a lip line:


Fill it in:

Now get your bright lip colour and fill it in using a brush. Blot when you are done:

Move to your eyes – curl lashes and apply a coat or two of mascara:


Get your gel liner and line underneath the lashes to add some definition:

Next, apply the clear gloss to your lids – just a bit will do. Try to get a non sticky gloss and obviously not one with plumping properties! (I found it harder than expected to find one that was non stick and wasn’t a volumizing type).

If your eyes are red use a little concealer.

Done eyes:

Nar’s Schiap lipstick is so gorgeous but pretty drying. On lips like mine I HAVE to use lip balm first and a little lip balm on top makes things a little more comfortable.

Thanks for looking!

    I love this look, I used to get teased all the time at school for rolling CA Pineapple Lipgloss onto my eyes. Also I was teased for my Bumble and Bumble bra strap hairband, what can I say, I was a little avant-garde in 1998 :)

    That’s a great tutorial! Probably too bold for me, but looks amazing on you :)
    I only wear lipgloss under my eyebrows, never thought of using it instead of an eyeshadow! I like how it looks though :)

    Thank you so much for sharing!
    Which one do you prefer for long wear on the eye lid(NARS lipgloss or CHANEL eye gloss)? Which one is more smudge or water proof?
    Love your blog.
