Face of the day - orange lip

Face of the day - orange lip
I have been wanting to try orange-red lips for ages, but I just haven't been able to find the right colour. I have swatched so many that I spotted on bloggers but they just don't look that great shade of light orange/red that I am wanting. I managed to pick up a slightly reminiscent shade from Sleek so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

My textbook base at the moment is Mac's 'Studio Sculpt' foundation in NW20 (which sadly is a little orange toned for me in the daylight but I love it anyway), Rimmel 'Wake me up' concealer under the eyes and chin, and Sleek's contour kit in medium.

For my eyes I used the shade 'Suspect' from my Naked 2 palette all over the lid for a natural but shimmery base then lined with my dark brown models own pencil. I then layered up Bourjouis 'Volume Glamour Max' on my top and bottom lashes. I used my Urban Decay brow box just to shape and tint my brows ever so slightly.

I finished off the look with the shade 'Kiss Me' from my Sleep lip palette in 'Siren'. It isn't quite the 'redorange' shade I am looking for but it was nice and bright with a nice matte texture. My only complaint is it didn't last too long compared with my Sleek lipsticks.
