Playing With Makeup, Recreating Look by Kandee Johnson

This is an extra blog post for the day just because I got bored and decided to recreate a look I saw Kandee Johnson do. Sometimes getting better at makeup and developing your own style is just to play around with makeup. I used the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette, Ciate London Fierce Flicks eyeliner, and Tanya Burr Matte Lip in Christmas Stocking. The only way you can get better at doing makeup is just messing about. One thing I tend to avoid are bright colors, but I got the full spectrum palette so I can start creating those types of looks. And I hadn't messed around with it, I just left the palette in my makeup organizer until a day I thought of some look for it. When I saw this look by Kandee Johnson, I decided I should take out the palette and mess about with the colors myself.

As I love red lipstick a lot, I choose to give myself a bright red lip instead of the natural lip that she had in the original photos.
