I'm taking the focus off my eyes this week.

I love playing with different eye looks, but sometimes I like to go a little crazy with the lips as well. This week's Look of the Week is more skin- and lip-focused, with very minimal eye makeup.

With the skin done I moved on to lips. A while back Alle did an excellent tutorial on ombre lips, but I’m far too lazy for all of that, so I did an abridged version. 

I applied a dark-blue lipstick all over my lips — I mixed MAC Lipmix in Blue and Black) with an angled liner brush (this brush helps with getting crisp edges). Then, I took my pinky and added a lighter blue (MAC Lipmix in Blue mixed with White) just to the center of my lips and blended it out with a clean eye brush.

You can use any color on the lips but I was really feeling the blue this week!
