ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Rock the Bike Babe


Forget about your pretty peach lipstick and rosy blush, it’s time to go bold and rock the biker babe look. Smudgy and sexy, this look involves lots of deep, dark shades, some uber extended lashes and thick, bold eyeliner that can immediately morph any girl next door into a bad girl babe.

The key to this bad girl look all relies upon the eyes. A dark smokey eye is quintessential of the biker babe style, usually complimented by a nude lip or for a bold statement, accompanied by a vixen red lip. Remember that when creating a smokey eye. The success of the smokey eye is dependant upon proper blending; the colours must always be flawlessly merged together. It is important to note, that for the perfect smokey eye, light base colours should be paired with rich darker colours, this applies to using lighter shimmers and dark shadowy blacks.

When selecting the complimentary lip colour, it is extremely crucial to note that when opting for the nude lip, a Fashionista must ensure to use lots bronzer to balance the neutral shades of the lip to avoid appearing washed out or sickly. The nude lip looks phenomenal when used with a bold smokey eye, and is definitely recommended if the eyes are to be the focal point of the look.

Red lips are a sexy alternative option and completely transforms the whole bad girl look into alluring seductress. However, although classic red lips can compliment nearly any type of look, it’s best worn as the one focus of a look. This means that there must be a choice between the siren red lip and the sexy smoky eye, because as every Fashionista knows, to avoid an overdone face, one can’t have more than one statement feature (unless it's an editorial).

So remember, inside of every Fashionista is a rebel babe pining to be let loose.
