Ah, the 80s. As a pre-teen, I really pushed the envelope with makeup, and absolutely would have worn a lip look like this one, created with samples of Rouge Artist Intense from the team at Make Up For Ever!
I’ve named the above lip look “80s Homage”, as this is the exact type of craziness I once wore during that fun decade! Such a shame I didn’t have Rouge Artist Intense lipstick then. The color of these lipsticks is so rich and bright, it made creating well-defined stripes so easy!
To create the above look I used the following shades (from center, and working outward to corners): Rouge Artist Intense 14, 21, 9, 15 and 17.
Shop for Make Up For Ever at Sephora.com, and create a wild lipstick look of your own!
