Twist on a Classic: Red Wing & Black Lip

It's exactly what it sounds like.

I haven't been feeling well the past week, so I haven't felt like I wanted to put a lot of creative energy (or any energy) into anything. But, that doesn't work out for long, usually.

When I sat down to do this look, I honestly started with the thought that I would do the actual classic black winged liner and red lip, since it's been forever since I've done it. But I just couldn't do it. It wasn't inspiring to me.  This was!

I don't know if it's the cold front or my not feeling well, but my skin is REALLY dry right now, and I overdid the concealer on my nose.
