At the LA Fashion Week in Hollywood, For Fashion News Live ASL, i’m interviewing Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics owner David Klasfeld. Very nice man, wonderful beauty products, i’m obsessed with their lip tar.
Beautiful as they are worn alone, we’re obsessed with mixing our OCC Lip Tars together to create new shades and effects. So when the ombré lip trend reached a saturation point, we were inspired to follow up our last OCC post with some new pairings. Enter David Klasfeld, the brand’s founder, who graciously took some time from his hectic fashion week schedule to make up some looks we can’t wait to try.
The first installment of this three-part series focuses on the most feminine and wearable looks.
LOOK #1: OCC LIP TARS IN NARCISSUS + FEATHERED + TROLLOP = THE LOLLIPOP STAIN
STEP ONE Use Narcissus as a base shade on the lips. STEP TWO Blend Feathered into the lip line all the way around. STEP THREE Dab Trollop to the inner pout—the inner area of both your top and bottom lips.
LOOK #2: INTERLACE + BLACK DAHLIA = FADE TO BLACK (DAHLIA)
STEP ONE Use the Short Handled Precision Lip Brush to define the upper lip with Black Dahlia. STEP TWO Blend downward toward the inner pout of the top lip. STEP THREE With a clean lip brush (there’s one included with each Lip Tar), blend Interlace on the bottom edge of the lower lip.
TIP: Mix a touch of Feathered with the Interlace to further brighten up the lower lip line.
LOOK #3: BLACK DAHLIA + PSYCHO + TRIPTYCH LOOSE PIGMENT POWDER = THE VAMPY OMBRÉ
STEP ONE Using the Short Handled Precision Lip Brush, line lips with Black Dahlia. STEP TWO With a clean brush, layer an overcoat of Psycho all over both lips. STEP THREE Finish off the look by dabbing Triptych Loose Pigment Powder in the center of both lips.
As he says in the interview: “I didn’t name the company arbitrarily.” It’s a ridiculously popular professional grade make up company and it’s vegan/animal cruelty free. (Sorry if I was rude in my reply to that ask.)
Mod note: in case anyone can’t read the article, the man who owns obsessive compulsive cosmetics has ocd and that’s why he named his company that. You weren’t rude in your reply. Thank you for letting me know.
