Red-Pink lips caught my eye in the mirror. The make up pros had done it again. It looked as if I had been sucking on a cherry ice lolly – and it brought me back. I am ususally not one for nostalgia, and I don´t know if you had anything like this, but in Mexico I grew up eating “vampires”.  Grape-Rasberry icicles that left your lips and tongue swollen from the cold, and stained in red and pink. To our amusement this cheeky look has been perfected by MAC. Their new collection, Nutcracker Sweet,  has stunning lipsticks but this technique is the icing on the cake. And it is super simple, you just need two lipsticks in the right tones – red (so good for you) & pink (flamboyish). You apply the pink on the outside border of your lips with a soft eyeshadow brush and  blend towards the center of your lips. Then “stain” the centre  with red. Blend. Blend. Blend and voila! Ready to kiss under the mistletoe.  😉
