Style Watch: Dark Eyes & Lips

DSCN9278 copy

For the longest time it has always been a makeup faux pas to wear dark lips, AND dark eyeshadow- It has always been either one or the other. The conventional way was either wearing a glam eye with a nude lip, or winged liner and dark lips. But, this fall i am all about the full on look. For my look i started by layering an orange-ish burgundy eyeshadow, then getting darker with warm browns towards my lid- making it a reverse ombre effect with eyeshadow. I brought some of the eyeshadow i used for under my eyes. Then i thinly lined my top lid with liquid liner, and bottom water line with a pencil. I am trying to ween off self tanner and embrace my natural pale skin, so i thought that i might as well make my skin look even paler with dark makeup. For my lips i tried to go the more drugstore route, i am using the Black Cherry Revlon lipstick. In the tube it looks black, but when you put it on it gives you a PERFECT red wine color. Lastly, my blouse is from French Connection!
