Autumn Makeup Edit: Mac Rebel Lipstick

Happy October Ladies, it's time to crack out the berry hues and I thought I would start with an old favourite that I'm sure you've heard me mention numerous time before. Enter "Mac Rebel" when it comes to bold lips this for me is the Queen!

Mac Rebel Lipstick Swatched

Mac Amber Lights Eyeshadow
Taupe From The Lorac Pro Palette

For my base I used the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to really work the foundation into my skin. I have quite a few spots on my forehead at the moment, so they needed to be covered and the combination of the Nars concealer and the sponge work really well together. I kept my cheeks simple with a cheap and cheerful blush from NYX, that has amazing pigmentation, you definitely need a slight hand.

Despite the bold lip I still went a little heavier (for me anyway) on the eyes, I used Mac Amber Lights all over my lid (seriously love this shade!) and a little underneath, with a bit of taupe through the crease. I also popped a bit of brown eyeliner along my top lashline to beef out my lashes and applied two coats of my new favourite mascara. Oh Charlotte Tilbury I love you!

Lastly, I lined my lips with the Invisible Lip Liner from Lipstick Queen and applied Rebel with the lip brush. Tada. It's not the most unique look in the world but it's out there enough for me.

What products are you looking forward to rocking this Autumn?

XOXO Claire

  3. Yes yes yes! I adore Rebel. It is gorgeous with a natural eye or even a subtle smokey eye for the night. Also, gorgeous brows lady!

  4. Love that lipstick for Autumn/winter!! The only thing I don't like about it is that it feathers like CRAZZY!!

    Also I love this look and I definitely struggle with pairing this lipstick with eyeshadows so I might try this when autumn rolls around again!
