August The Look wasn't difficult to decide on at all cos I let my heart lead the way. I'll be the first to admit that I had to look for a dupe for the Matte lippie which worked out all right.  All I had to do was let the lights lead. Beauty editorial African woman with afro purple glossy lipsBeauty editorial African woman with afro purple glossy lipsBeauty editorial smiling African woman with afro purple glossy lips

Working with matte lip products are quite tricky for me especially as different brands have different matte formulations. The Sleek flash a pout lip stains are hard to work with mattes as they are very unforgiving when you make a mistake. I wasn't too unhappy when I couldn't find it for the shoot and had to use a dupe - Blot Beauty Sort. The mascara is actually a fibre lash one which elongates the lashes (good for people with almost invisible lashes) and the gloss is a really light weight one.

Skin work was really the most important for this look as it basically is skin and lips. I wonder if I can do an editorial for just skin hmmm.
