Magenta & Orange Lips of the Day

Hi Bellas,

Tis the season to play with fun, bold colored lips!  Today I'm showing you a lip combo that was inspired from my girl Jackie aka LilPumpkinPie05.  It's a gorgeous orange/magenta combination.  Sounds a little odd but it goes together quite nicely.  Check it out!
Here is what I used but feel free to dupe it for whatever you have.  Purple lipstick - MAC Violetta, Magenta Lipliner - MAC Magenta Lip Pencil, and Orangey Coral Gloss - MAC Lychee Luxe Lipglass.  You can also go for a deeper lip pencil in a wine shade.  LilPumpkinPie05 used MAC Vino, which gives it a deeper purple effect.  I forgot to use that one but I like the effect Magenta gives as well.
Here are the products swatched so you can get an idea of how they look - from top to bottom:  lipstick, lipliner, and gloss.
Step 1:  Line your lips with the magenta lip pencil.
Step 2:  Fill in your lips with the purply lipstick.  I like to use a lip brush to make it more precise.
Step 3:  Finally, apply the orange lipgloss to mainly the center of your lips and blend it in.
You get this really pretty orangey/magenta mix.  Reminds me of Sherbert!
That's all for now folks.  I'll be back with more fall lip combos.  I'm trying to use permanent products that you all have so you can try it out yourself.  If you have any recommendations, leave them in the comments below!
