Cara Delevingne Burberry Lip Velvet Look...

This Autumn Burberry came out with the new Lip Velvet lipsticks in 12 beautiful velvet shades, going from the perfect nudes to deep burgundy colours... I particularly love the brick red lip look Cara Delevingne [current girl crush!] is wearing in the Burberry Lip Velvet ad images, which I decided to recreate with Burberry Lip Velvet in Military Red No.310... This shade comes out as a beautiful classic red, and therefore I needed to tone it down and create a deeper shade... You can make any red lipstick pull the colour you want by filling in your lips with a lip liner in the desired colour first, I used Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Amarante 54, which is a violet plum shade... Although it's a velvet lipstick, it does not feel drying on my lips... It feels very smooth and luxurious... Not to mention the magnetic lid that slaps into place...

For eyes I went with the classic Burberry eye look, which has a wash of colour and is also taken quite far down under the lower lashes and inner-corner creating this smoked out exhausted but chic look to reflect the cool tones of London's rainy and grey weather, which we all Londoners love to moan about... This look is also perfect for a chic way of approaching Halloween! To get the Burberry eye look: I applied MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork all over the lid, and then to add a little more depth I used Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Taupe Brown No.07, a very simple and quick look... The Burberry packaging is incredibly stylish... It feels heavy and luxurious... You almost feel bad for ruining the pristine Burberry print... Simply classic!
