Then I headed over to Youtube for some inspiration. After sitting through several videos, I had an epiphany. That perfect shade I'm looking for might already be in my makeup bag.
MACs Chestnut works well if you are deeper skintoned. I also love Cork which isn't as deep as Chestnut. Now I'm on the lookout for a brown-mauvey lip pencil. On my to-do list is to check out NYX's lipliners. Take a gander at the tutorial below to see how she created this deep neutral look. On her lips she paired two pencils. Jordana's Rock and Rose and Jordana's Coco Loco.
Oh, one last thing, if you are going to experiment with this look, make sure to exfoliate your lips using a sugar scrub and drink lots of water to keep your lips soft and hydrated.
