FOTN: Inspired by CNN

I was watching CNN this afternoon and anchor Fredericka Whitfield had the most awesome makeup. Strong brows, nearly naked eye, and an orange/red lip. Really nice. So when I got home tonight, I thought I’d do a little something similar:

I photographed the look with flash…

…and without.

MUFE Primer in #4

MAC In Lilyland Beauty Powder

MAC Lip Pencil in Temperature Rising
OCC Liptar in NSFW
La Prairie Lipstick in Flamme

    I'm loving this look!!! I've been wearing barely there makeup and bold lips lately and loving it! I have all those lip products except the flamme lipstick but I am so going to try and replicate that lip color. Very Pretty!!

    Thanks! I was so struck by the look that I just HAD to try it on myself! I normally put a little more on my eyes (habit) but I'm really liking the way it looks. I'll be definitely doing it more often…

  3. ShahadaKarim says:

    And Flamme is really easy. It's just an opaque orange. You can mix OCC Safety Orange with NSFW and get the same result.

    Your skin looks flawless! I like how simple this appears, and yet both your eyes and lips really pop.
