I posted a date night makeup look on instagram not too long ago and got some responses about my makeup and the color of my lipstick.  I decided later to recreate that look and share the tutorial.
When I originally created then look, I remember wanting something neutral but taken a tad bit further with soft smoky eyeliner.  Out of that came the Smoldering Eyes Velvet Lips makeup look.
This lippie’s texture isn’t velvet but I names it that for another, more nostalgic reason.  The color of the lipstick reminded me of this velvet dress my mom had when I was a little girl.  I used to always sneak into my parents’ wardrobe just to rub the material against my cheek.  I was so fascinated by the way velvet felt different depending on which direction you swiped your hand across the fabric. Ah, memories.
Anyhow, I plan to do another take on a velvet lip soon.  That’ll be fun.
