Peachy-neutral eye makeup and just-bitten lipstick for the daytime.
For a while now, I have been wanting to try out the Korean just-bitten gradient lip look, where the inner lips are deeper and fade away to an MLBB shade towards the edges. The style went viral after it appeared in a few K-Pop dramas. It is a relatively easy look requiring a deeper lip colour, and a paler one. Since I am a fan of matte lips, I opted for matte lip colours rather than glossy shades, and paired it with a very soft, peachy-neutral matte eye look. This is a daytime look, so I wanted it as soft as possible.
Check out my Valentine's Day makeup look, featuring matte bitten lips and soft neutral eyeshadow.
The products I used:
Face1. Dr Brandt CC Mat (my new HG foundation which actually adapts to your skintone; will review it soon)
2. Dr Brandt Pores No More primer
3. Givenchy Prisme Foundation Powder in Shaping Honey
4. Bourjois Delice de Poudre highlighter
Eyes5. IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Transforming Palette Vol. 1, reviewed here
6. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, reviewed here
7. Bourjois Volume Fast & Perfect Rotating Mascara
8. Bourjois 16h Liner Pinceau
I picked Warmth for the inner corners and browbone, Soulful for all-over-lids and All Heart for the crease, and Noir for the waterline and brows. In natural light:
Here is the look in artificial light:
Lips9. Etude House Rosy Tint Lips in Rose Petal for the inner lips
10. Etude House Rosy Tint Lips in Peony Baby for the outer lips
Rose Petal is a soft pinky-red while Peony Rose is a soft dusty pink. Both can be used as tints or built up for full coverage; I opted for the basic tint. I blended both out with a lip brush, but I have pigmented lips which makes the difference less obvious. I did not use lip liner, since the Rosy Tint Lips do not bleed. These are non-drying and have great staying power. You can read my review of these here.
