| FOTD: Signature Red Lip |

     Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a fantastic day! I figured that I would start everything off on here with a Face of the Day (more commonly known as FOTD's, so not necessarily a tutorial; however if anyone would like to see one, I plan on starting the other venue of uploading videos very soon! But for now, a tutorial for this would more than likely be uploaded as a pictorial, if requested). 😊

       So, the red lip has been probably the most loved and most feared aspect of makeup throughout the evolution of the art to this day. It seems to be the one color that just loves to feather and bleed the most, not to mention attach itself to our pearly whites just when we're about to take a picture, am I right? Now, I think I have found my perfect combination of products for a red lip! 

     The bottom picture is more true to how this actually looked in real life. I'm very new to photo editing (I use the PhotoScape program to get the truest depiction of how the colors (and me) would look in real life). However, I only use this program extensively under two conditions: (1) if I don't use my camera, and take the picture with an unconventional device such as my iPad, and (2) if it is nighttime when I take them, and they look very grainy (both of the pictures above were taken with my iPad in the evening), so I worked with what I could to get the TRUE colors to show. Just a disclaimer. Photography is not my best asset, and I'll learn as I go. Otherwise, with my camera, I still use the program, just in much more moderation, since I do have quite a good camera. I just wanted to be honest, like I should be. Alright enough babbling! Here is the product breakdown for this look:
