OCC Divine Lip Tar FOTD

This look is a bit of a before and after look. I went to IMATS Toronto with this look, apart from the lip colour. When I got home and tried on one of the OCC Lip Tars I bought - Divine - I loved how it looked all together, so I thought I'd photograph it for you.

Basically, it's a soft smokey eye (one of my favourite looks), soft blush and a lip colour with a soft pop of colour. Wow, an OCC Lip Tar can be soft and wearable like this? Who knew?!

My base was my usual base - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, MAC Studio Fix Concealer and Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil to set it.

On my eyes I applied a purpley-brown from a Sally Hanson Carmindy palette. I blended it all over the lid and slightly above the crease, softening it out as it got higher.

On top, I applied MAC Club eyeshadow, one of my very favourite colours. It's a red-brown with bottle green shimmer. At one angle you get the rich red-brown and at another angle you get a flash of metallic green.

I smudged Club along my lower lashline as well, more heavily at the outside of my eye and soft towards the inner corner.

For a bit more depth, I applied MAC Smut (another favourite shadow) at the edges of the crease and blended it in. I also used an angle brush to smudge Smut along my lash line, because really, I can't help but smudge a dark colour along my lashline, ever.

For a highlight colour, I used MAC Mega Metal Shadow in Peek-At-You, a vanilla shimmery shade. I applied this on my brow bone and a touch on the inside corners of my eyes.

To further smoke up my eyes, I applied MAC Technakohl Liner in Greyprint on my waterline. Using a grey on the waterline gives a much softer effect and the Technakohl liners are great for being less irritating to the eyes and long-lasting.

My mascara is a favourite of mine: L'Oreal's Voluminous in Black.

For a soft cheek, I used my go-to blush lately, MAC's Stunner from the MAC Me Over collection a few months ago. I swirled it softly on the apples of my cheeks in layers and blended it towards my ear, blending it, blending it, blending it for the sheerest effect possible.

OCC Lip Tars are like a liquid lipstick, intensely pigmented and the amount shown below on the tip of the tube is enough for two applications. It lasts for hours and is vegan. This shade is called Divine and it's a soft, slightly bubble-gum-pink.

I applied a coat of Divine and then blotted it with a tissue. I didn't use a lip pencil, but you can if you have trouble applying this. You need to be careful, use a brush and start with a little and add more as you need. A very little of OCC Lip Tar goes a long way. 

This is great for a slightly-more-than-subtle day look but still smoky and sultry.
