Beauty Breakdown: Contoured Natural

The first in a series of pictures have come back from the recent shoot I did with Nadirah Bahar and Edo. I wanted to keep some of the shots as ‘natural’ as possible (we were shooting in natural lighting with no additional ‘help’ from artificial light sources, but I still wanted to emphasize Edo’s incredible bone structure with a little contour.

Lip Service: Lip Fusion Gloss in Goddess

I can’t seem to get enough of this formula. The Lip Fusion Gloss in Goddess was not my first choice, because honestly I thought it would go ashy on me. But when I put it on… it became part of my face… like, it nearly disappeared (but in a good way). Observe…

The color is opaque enough to even out my pigmented lips… but the color is like my lips on their very  best day on Earth. I wore it with just mascara and a little tinted moisturizer and the result was polished and effortless. I love it.
