This weekend, I'll be attending one of my best friends' hens night and we're going on a cruise (yes, that kind of cruise!) We're going to be on a boat and it's a hens night, so what's missing? Sailor costumes of course! For my nautical makeup look, a red lip is a must - read on for what makeup product I'll be rocking on my lips that puts a fun twist on the classic red lippie.
Sailor outfits are reminiscent of the sexy pin-up girls of the 1950s. The key features of classic pin-up girl makeup are well-defined brows, neutral eyes, black liner, big lashes and of course, bold red lips. I personally love red lips because I feel they add instant glam, even if your eyes are bare!
However, because it's a hens night, I want to add a bit of extra oomph to my kissers (there's no better time to go all out!) So I will be swapping my red lippie for Violent Lips! What are Violent Lips I hear you ask? They are innovative lip appliqués that are applied much like a temporary tattoo and there's a huge range of fun prints and patterns, such as polka dots, leopard print and sparkly glitter.
The print I'm going to go for is Red Glitterati - crimson, glittery and bold - perfect for a hens!
