For this Wishlist Wednesday, I’m going with something a little more abstract/theoretical. We all know how much I love my red lipstick, but I’ve yet to nail down the perfect red lip eye makeup.

I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.

Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her boyfriend fiance is a stone fox.)

OOH LA LA!

My inner narrative upon seeing it: Quelle Parisienne!! I mean, all of it. The stripes. The hair. The delicate features. The winged liner. The red lips. But, look, isn’t she wearing eyeshadow?

Whatever it was, I knew I needed a closer look, so I found out what even it was (Dior show in Paris, unsurprisingly), and found some more.

The perfect red lip eye makeup Still not quite there, but yes, yes she is, and it’s gorgeous.

And look, there’s a shimmery highlight on her brow bone!

The perfect red lip eye makeup It’s magic! Look at it!

But I couldn’t find any information on who did her makeup or what it was. I’m THISCLOSE to putting the photos on my iPad and bringing it with me into MAC or Sephora.

So I’m turning to you all! Come on, some of you are amazing at makeup, what do you think it is? HELP A SISTER OUT. This is all I want this Wednesday!!
What do you think of this look? Do you prefer red lipstick without eye makeup? What are you wishing for this week?

    • Ha, and the post wasn't even about the bag!! I've seen pink and red combinations a lot. That rule has gone out, along with black with navy. 😉
