Gabbi Garcia: Burgundy Bombshell

August #CalyxtaGirl, Gabbi Garcia, is all about keeping her makeup look simple, perfectly highlighting the bold burgundy lip she’s rocking! A mark of true bombshell beauty, everything about this look invites you in without trying too hard.

Here’s a quick guide to rocking a bombshell look like Gabbi:

1. The secret is a good base! Gabbi’s foundation is poreless and smooth, giving off very soft and seamless features—almost like a blur effect to direct attention straight to the lips. Achieve Gabbi’s smooth base by blending Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation all over the face and neck and concealing dark circles with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. Seal everything in with Maybelline Fit Me Powder for a blur matte effect.

2. A makeup look without blush or bronzer can leave the face (especially a matte one) looking flat. Use Maybelline Face Studio V-Face Contour Blush to bring back the high points and contours of your face. Sweep on the blush on the apples of your cheeks, and the bronzer on your temples, hollows of your cheeks, and on your jawline.

3. Frame the face with filled in brows using the Maybelline Fashion Brow 3D Creamy Pencil with Brush. Use short and quick strokes to mimic the look of real hair and blend out using the attached spoolie brush. It’s perfectly okay to leave your eyebrows unruly with this look!

4. Although the makeup look directs your attention straight to the lips, you still want to make your eyes look light and alive—sort of like a contrast to the dark lippie you’ll be sporting. Luminous eyes is a good break from the rest of the matte makeup. Double up your Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter as an eyeshadow for full on shimmer over the eyes. Sweep all over the eyelid for that splash of light!

5. Draw a thin line with Maybelline Eye Studio Hypersharp Liner without extending the wings. Proceed to curling your lashes and coating both your upper and lower lashes with Maybelline Volume Express Falsies to elongate the lashes.

6. This look’s main player is the deep burgundy lip Gabbi is sporting. The bluish undertone of the burgundy lipstick actually compliments morena skin well, especially for neutral and warm undertones (which most Filipinas have). Glide on Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Voyager all over your lip and rock the Burgundy Bombshell look all day!
