A Blaq Vixen Beauty exclusive: how to get Li Bingbing vampy lip from Transformers: Age of Extinction
There’s nothing like a good vampy lip, no? Did you love the blackened burgundy pout Li Bingbing wore in Transformers: Age of Extinction. Her lipstick and her inky-black feathered gaze (the eyeliner is Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Precision Pen in Blacquer) inspired me to write this post.
In this fourth installment, Bingbing plays CEO Su Yueming of the Chinese factory KSI contracted to build their human-created Transformers. Truly, Yueming is a boss after my heart – even if she was written from a shrewd businesswoman to a modern dragon lady stereotype. Regrettably, this pointless and offensive decision contributed to Transformers: Age of Extinction’s largely negative reception.
I noticed a few of you loved her accessories. She wore a pair of chic Louis Vuitton spring 2013 Petit Soupcon Round Brown Sunglasses.
A Gucci Gold Twirl Watch graced her wrist.
Finally, let’s move on to the makeup! Incidentally, celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung shared that she was the creator of Bingbing’s fierce, but elegant makeup look recently. Moreover, she shared the complete makeup details, including the four products to create Li’s vampy lip!
So proud to have worked on Transformers: Age of Extinction (#1 movie [in] the world)! Thank you [to] Michael Bay for having me on another Transformers movie! Honored to come back after being on Transformers 3 as Rosie Huntington’s Whiteley’s makeup artist, to do the makeup for Chinese actress Li [Bingbing] as character Su Yueming and to design [the makeup] look for Nicola Peltz’s character Tessa Yeager.
