beauty pro cosmetics how to wear bold lipstick

The Makeup Look: MAC Lady Danger Matte Lipstick


Despite having to wake up early and not getting to play with colorful eye makeup, I have to draw a line somewhere... I can't give up color just like that. So with the little time that I've got with prepping, I thought that lipstick is going to be the best way for me to add color to my everyday makeup look.

If you follow me on twitter, I promised that I'll be wearing the MAC Lady Danger for work! And here it is! Yes, I dared to wear a frakkin' bold lipstick at 7 a.m.! Hahaha!

Lady Danger is a bright orange red matte lipstick. It's usually sold out at MAC Counters here in the Philippines, but thanks to famous makeup artist, Jigs Mayuga, I got my hands on this when he gave me a heads up. Red lippies may not always be the go-to shade for me, but I love that I have the choice to rock this look out 

The funny thing is, the makeup I did was a simple prime/neutral look. Nothing special at all. And yet, here is Lady Danger making it seem as if I'm all made up! Hahaha!

Makeup Tip:
Define the eye when using bold lipstick shades. This balances out your whole makeup look. Accentuate your eyes with a long lasting liner and line the waterlines as well. Opt to wing the eyes just a little if you wnat some flare. You can also brighten your eyes with a mascara.

  1. Hi Shen :) I don't wear red lipstick kahit na sabi nila ok daw sakin kasi I'm fair pero I don't have the courage. I really like your attitude when it comes to makeup. I like your confidence kasi you can carry talaga bold and bright lippies. I remember in one of your post that your proud of your teeth na same with Madonna, about your two front teeth ako naman I still don't have the confidence to smile ng okay dahil yellowish talaga yung teeth ko. So if gagamit ako ng bold color lippie I know yun ang unang mapapansin same as my teeth. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. awww.. awesome! i think.. all bold and bright lippies look good on you ^^ i wish i can wear them too..  >< 

  3. Shen, you're one heck of a vibrant soul. Even time can't force you to not channel that playful, colorful kid in you. I love that about you, and I think that what draws other people to you :)
    Salamat kay Jigs Mayuga, you got this lippie --- it's suits you perfectly! And ang ganda naman ng default blush mo, the best hint of pink on your cheeks. Stay on default for longer (but I know you wouldn't, ikaw pa!).

  4. you look radiant :) i think the lipstick compliments your skin really well,  i love this color on you.

    That lipstick is love! Too pricey for me though..

  12. Love, love, love the lippie on you, Shen! I don't know if it will suit me though! :P

  13. Fierce Shen! I don't really like red lippies since I thought they won't look good on me. But I stand corrected. I wear red on my lips now because it gives me so much confidence. Dunno what's in a red lipstick that just makes me so confident, sexy and bold. :)

  14. Aaah I am going to get one!! Can't have too many red lippies XD

    This red lippie is love because it has red orangey shade to it. I color is so vibrant and since it's from Mac for sure the quality is also superb! Definitely worth your money♥

  16. The lippie is a a combination of super red and orange color, it looks really vibrant. I have a MAC lippie but it comes in pink & purple color, ti doesn't look good on me. I prefer brown and red shades color lippies.

    Hi Ms Shen I am one of your avid follower everyday I always make sure to read all your blogs because I learned so many things from you especially on the kikay department, it's just now that I have the courage to post comment on your site:) Natutuwa lang me sa yo, parang ang bait bait mo saka sobrang prangka wish I will have the chance to meet you in person someday hehehe pag may courage na ko

  18. I love how this orange red lippie just stands out! It's an absolutely gorgeous shade that pulls your look together so well! I hope I can get my hands on this too someday! Ang ganda sayo lalo na with your flawless application!

    hi miss shen! i can see that you're wearing somewhat like an " anne curtis shade" right there. hehe. 
    nice :)

  20. I'm pretty sure that this is the perfect red lipstick for me! :) I love the intensity of the color, the brightness of the red and since it's matte, it will create the simple yet glamorous look that I've been wanting! I hope MAC fills their stores with this, my problem with MAC is that since it's a really good brand, most of their products run out of stock and most of the time, they don't replensih them. :( Is this MAC's way of telling us that once we see a product we like, we should hoard!?! :))


I would love to hear from you!
