(For Halloween Costume) Any input would help!

Unfortunately I have brown eyes, but the red hair is a go! Have red lipstick...just not sure how to "draw outside the lines" without my natural lip shape showing through.

Hi,

This type of lip application is called "The Smear". See if this video helps YouTube - MakeUp Tutorial - Lips The Smear

You definately need an arched, painted on eyebrow in an auburn brown, some fluttery false lashes and a winged eye.

Leza, that was a really good tutorial. That looked like the kinds of lips that Lucille did for sure.

I can not wait to see the finished product. I am sure you will look adorable.

Cool! You could block out your natural lip shape with heavy concealer and draw in a bow lip shape in a bold color!

Thanks for posting the tutorial. I've been wanting to try a lip like this, as well.

Good luck with your costume, jellobird! Post some pics so we can see how it turned out.

Hi Jellobird:

OMG, you look just like her (especially in the second picture). Congrats on having the best costume in school.

I'm glad I was able to help.
