Highlight Your Cupids Bow

Beautégram: Gold Cupid’s Bows at Aganovitch

All week, the Cut is live at Paris Fashion Week, bringing you the best in backstage beauty tips.

Backstage at the Aganovitch show in Paris, makeup artist Max Delorme was spotted delicately outlining models’ cupid’s bows with gold paint. “The collection is really powerful with lots of volume and color,” he said, while mixing yellow cream pigment with a dot of MAC’s greenish Old Gold pigment onto the back of his hand. “So the makeup is pure and minimalistic, which looks futuristic; the gold on the lip also acts like jewelry.” While painting high-impact gold pigment onto the lip (with nothing else) might not be an everyday thing, popping on a touch of your own pearlescent highlighter to that point on your lip will further define and accentuate the shape of your mouth.

Try putting Stila’s Illuminating Moisturizer lightly on the edges of your cupids bow. It will reflect the light and bring out the shape of your lip. Beautyful!

Vampy Lips at Do’s & Lipstick


A beautiful vampy lip reminiscent of a 1920′s film noir, paired with a quiet eye and immaculate skin is a fresh look for the holidays.

Shape your lips with a dark currant lip pencil, then take the side of the pencil and fill in. Blot with a tissue to remove excess oil and separate a two ply kleenex, use one of the pieces of tissue that you separated and use as a sifter. Take the kleenex, hold it over the lips and powder over the lips on the kleenex with a soft brush and sheer powder. This will keep your color on all night. Then apply your lipstick. Gorgeous!

Makeup Tip of the Week

Makeup Tip of the Week #1 Lipstick

To create longevity for your  lipstick application:

l.  Line lips to show (and correct if needed) the SHAPE of your lips

2. Take the side of your lipliner and FILL IN the lips (this way you will never see a ‘line’ around the lips

3. Take a 2 ply kleenex and separate the 2 pieces.  Take one of the pieces of kleenex, place over lips and lightly powder lips by tapping a  powdered brush  over the kleenex.  The kleenex acts as a ‘SIFTER’ with the smallest amount of powder coming through the microscopic holes in the kleenex.  This step is essential and is what will keep your lipliner and lipstick on longer.

4.  Apply lipstick or gloss.  If you like, you can also just wear the lipliner by itself.  I like to do this on shoots for a matte look.  Very pretty.


Have a Beautyful week~
