Modern Crimson

Slip into the holiday season with a crimson lip that is a little adventurous + a lot of fun. Keep things modern with fresh skin and a generous swipe of mascara. A look that shines as bright & BOLD as you do.


Prep the skin with your favorite Vapour primer; we used Essential Daily Primer for its balancing effect and lightweight texture. Start by applying a small amount towards the center of your face and massage into the skin with your fingertips for a fresh + natural finish.

Perfect complexion with Soft Focus Foundation. Begin by dotting a small amount of foundation towards the center of the face. Use the Foundation Brush to buff and blend outwards in gentle circular motions for a seamless finish. Use a pressing or stippling motion in areas that need a little extra coverage.

Add a flush of color to the cheeks with High Voltage Lipstick in BOLD. Start by drawing a few strokes of the lipstick onto the back of your hand and pick it up with the Blush Brush. Gently tap onto the cheeks, blending out the color with the clean side of the brush. Remember to start with a just tiny amount, as High Voltage is richly pigmented in color!

Take down any excess shine with Perfecting Powder on the Powder Brush. We used the loose formula for a barely-there dusting that lets your skin glow. Use a gentle pressing & rolling motion to lock in foundation for all-day wear.


A bold lip is perfectly balanced with a simple eye. Mesmerize Mascara in JET will add just the right amount of definition and length to make your eyes pop. Apply a few extra coats on the outer corners of the lashes for a lifted, cat eye effect.

Frame your face by filling in brows with Brow Definer. We used STORM for this look, but select the shade that suits you best. Start at the arch in soft, feathery strokes and work your way down towards the tail. Gently fill in the front of the brow keeping your pressure light. Finish by combing through the brows with the pencil’s spoolie tip to blend.


The crowning feature of this look is a rich, deep red lip. We chose High Voltage Lipstick in BOLD because it flatters every skin tone and adds the perfect amount of festive drama for any occasion. Swipe High Voltage Lipstick in BOLD directly from the bullet across the top and bottom lip for intense color. Perfect the shape by making a small ‘x’ at the cupid’s bow and a curved line under the center of the bottom lip with a small brush. Next start at the outer corners and line up to the center of the top and bottom lip for maximum fullness. Make sure to take your time to perfect the entire surface.
