M.A.C. brand (Russia) devoted the whole March to the red lipstick — Russian Red. You know it is my favorite lipstick I have in my beauty case. That is why M.A.C. has chosen me for collaboration. Ekaterina Ponomaryova, a leading makeup artist of M.A.C. Russia, was supposed to show an perfect makeup with red lipstick as a main accent. We will show how to put on such makeup step-by-step for each of you to do it by yourself.
Один из моих самых любимых beauty-брендов M.A.C весь март посвятил красной помаде оттенка Russian Red. Именно эту помаду мы выбрали звездой моего макияжа и пошагово продемонстрировали вам — как сделать такой же самостоятельно. Ведущий визажист M.A.C в России и стран СНГ Екатерина Пономарева показывает и очень доступно рассказывает о технике этого макияжа.

Each makeup (especially with bright lips) requires an ideal face tone. I have perfect skin without defects. However it is very thin so it needs additional covering that should be very light rather than heavy. You don’t need to conceal tenderness or whiteness of your skin under the thick layer of makeup foundation. Stay airy! Make an emphasis on what the nature has given you. Katerina put light moisture cream STUDIO MOISTURE FIX SPF 15 on my face. Then she added a little quantity of this cream into makeup foundation STUDIO SCULPT and put this mix on my face leaving a zone around eyes uncovered. To cover zone around eyes Katerina used concealer palette with six tones STUDIO FINISH CONCEALERS. She mixed light yellow and pink concealers in order to make good foundation for dark under-eye circles. Then she covered this thick foundation with liquid eye concealer PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER.
After fixing makeup foundation and concealer with face powder STUDIO CAREBLEND it is required to prepare lips for makeup. It is necessary just to moisture them and continue makeup.
I asked makeup artist to make my eyebrows as natural as possible. To do this Katerina used eye liner-pencil STUDIO CAREBLEND. The color is ideal for blonde. By using this pencil you can color you brows very carefully and gently.
For lid Katerina chose cream eye shadows PROLONGWEAR PAINT POT with pink tone VINTAGE SELECTION. In eyelid crease as well as for a small part of moving eyelid makeup artist used usual eye shadows EYE SHADOW with warm tone SOBA.
And now came my most desirable part – wings! When I saw Katya for the first time she had perfect wings on her eyes! I thought I wish I had such wings. I can’t make such similar, straight and beautiful wings at all. I felt very nervous when Katya took liquid eyeliner FLUIDLINE and started making wings on my eyes. I had ideal wings! I nearly cried with happiness, but I would destroy the makeup.
Wings are made; we make tails of my eyes slightly darker with dark eye shadows EYE SHADOW. In my case we use matt eye shadows ESPRESSO. After that we use black mascara MINERALIZE MULTI-EFFECT LASH CHARGED BLACK, pink blush POWDER BLUSH FLEUR POWER and highlighter MINERALIZE SKINFINISHE.
And at last there come lips! Firstly we put on base PREP+PRIME that makes lips perfectly smooth. After that Katya drew neat lip line red with LIP PENCIL. You shouldn’t draw line beyond the lip while using red lipstick. Red lipstick equally matches thick, thin and middle-shaped lips. Just draw neatly your lip line. And after that… there come red LIPSTICK — RUSSIAN RED, a star of this makeup!
