Make Up How To with Bren: Vampy Lip
Vamp is back, and itʼs not your 90ʼs version. (Hello, Chanel Vamp Nail polish!) This fresh take is less brown, and more deep red/plum, making it perfect for Fall, but can be just as gorgeous right now. Inspired by Kate Bosworthʼs makeup look at this yearʼs Met Ball, I decided to give Mel the Summer version.

Primer- Pink Papaya Pore Perfecting Face Primer
Foundation- Armani Luminous Silk
Concealer- Pink Papaya Mineral Photo Touch Medium
Brow Color/Shadow- MAC Charcoal Brown
Eye Shadow Base- Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze Eye Shadow- MAC Pigment in Tan

1. To get your most flawless finish and ensure that your makeup lasts, start with an application of Primer.
2. Using your foundation brush, apply foundation only to the areas that need it, just to even out your skin tone.
3. Apply concealer to under-eye area to camouflage dark circles, and to any other problem areas where you might need a little more coverage. Blend, blend, blend.
4. To keep your shadow in place without creasing, apply an eye shadow base across your entire lid. I used one in a bronze tone, similar to the eye shadow. This can also be worn on itʼs own if your short on time.
5. Apply loose shadow (pigment) on top of shadow base for extra staying power. Add a little to the lower lash line for definition.
6. Fill in any sparse areas of your brows with your angled brush and eye shadow/brow color.
7. Curl lashes and add a coat of your blackest black mascara.
8. Contour the hollows of your cheek bones using bronzer, and apply a pop of blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Add a light sweep of highlighter powder onto the highest part of your cheek bone, and up towards your temple.
9. Line and fill in lips completely using your lip pencil.
10. Finish with a coat of sheer red/plum gloss.
