Ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls, I introduce to you the official Instagram Ombre Lip Queen, Zavia Monet!
I genuinely felt like Christmas had come around again when I discovered this gem on Instagram just a few weeks ago, I follow quite a few makeup accounts on Instagram with hopes of constantly improving my face game, but neverthless I’ve always struggled with mastering the ombre lip. That was until I discovered Zavia Monet!
Now you may be wondering what makes Zavia Monet stand out amongst the thousands, if not millions of makeup focused Instagram accounts out there. Well for one her account focuses mainly on lip tutorials so no need to scroll through to find one, second of all she lists all of the products she uses in detail, and finally her tutorials are so easy to replicate you just can’t go wrong! Oh and did I mention she can make absolutely any lip colour, be it a gloss, lipstick or lipliner work on her lips regardless of its shade or even brightness!
As a woman of colour I’m quite sure I’m not the only one who has fallen in love with a lip product, but has steered away from it because I just don’t think it will suit my skin tone. Well this lady has definitely changed things around for me and even hubby has been throwing the compliments my way!
If you’re anything like me and have several under used lip products in your makeup stash, I challenge you to give them a test drive after watching some of Zavias clips, I’m pretty sure you’ll be putting some things to much greater use afterwards. I know I did!
NEW LIP ALERT I feel like I’ve been wearing nude lips all week, so I thought I’d switch it up. Again everything that I’m using is from MAC soooo lets get into it: 1.) Line lips with Nightmoth and fill inside the lips (not completely). 2.) Apply Dance With Me (bold red color) Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick, mainly in the center of the bottom lip and purse lips together. 3.) Use the same lip wand that I applied Dance With Me and blend the liner and lipstick, by dragging the wand around the lip line. You don’t want to see any separation between the liner and the lipstick. 4.) Take a small synthetic brush/concealer that matches your skin tone and carve out the lip line, cleaning any liner that may have gone outside of the lines. I’m using MAC Pro Longwear in the color Nc 50. Fin If you all would like to see a certain lip combination, I’m open to suggestions. Or say if you have a lipstick that you regret buying, tell me what it is so I can show you how I would make it Pop #zaviamonet #ilovemacgirls #ilovemaciggirls #dmvmakeupartist #baltimoremakeupartist #primitiveglamsalonstudio #primitiveglamsalon #hudabeauty #iamkevinwade #rennyvasquez #vegasnay #amrezy #essencemagazine #MakeupbyZay #beautyblogger
My Pretty In Pink Lips As gloomy as it is outside, I felt like channeling my inner fairy so here’s what I did: (as usual lol all mac products) 1️⃣ Line lips with Nightingale (rich fuchsia) lip pencil 2️⃣ Apply Pink Plaid (matte soft pink) lipstick 3️⃣ Blend those two using the sides of Plum lip pencil 4️⃣ Go back in with Nightingale to deepen the edge of lip line. 5️⃣ Apply Fleshpot lipstick (satin light beige pink) in the center of bottom lip. 6️⃣ Apply Extra Amps dazzleglass (a sparkly pink clear gloss) in the enter of bottom lip. So there you have it #zaviamonet #dmvmakeupartist #baltimoremakeupartist #ilovemacgirls #ilovemaciggirls #hudabeauty #vegasnay #naturalhaircommunity #protectivestyles #voiceofhair #unconditionedroots #myhaircrush #makeupforblackwomen #rennyvasquez #fauxlocs #fauxlocsnbeautiful #thecutlife
