I think it looks beautiful. Unfortunately, I have practically no talent with makeup. My routine is simple, because I am inept. I wear Cherries in the Snow lipstick (Revlon?) and dab a tiny bit on my cheek and blend that in for blush. Then...a dark mascara..whatever is on sale. If I am feeling especially brave, I slip on some green eyeliner.

OMG this looks awesome!! I always feel like my lipstick is feathering on the edges, even if I use lip liner, so I mostly use glosses...But this just itches me to try it out!

The best way I've found to stop feathering at the edges (especially for very colourful lip looks) is to use a clear, waxy lip liner on the very edge of the lips and then also right outside the lip borders. Then apply colour as usual. One I particularly like is D'Liner D'Finer by Benefit, but I believe that some drugstore brands offer similar items now (Benefit were, to my knowledge, the first to think of it). Just make sure it's quite waxy. This really helps ensure that the colour doesn't migrate. If the liner feels a little thick, it's perfect (and it doesn't matter, since on the skin you don't feel it or see it).

Thanks for the tip! We don't have benefit here, but I'll try to find something that works! :)
