BEAUTY BAR: Dark Hues or Bold Blues

As the seasons change from summer to fall, the days get shorter and darker earlier. In the fashion and cosmetics world, the days aren’t the only thing that starts to get darker, so does the makeup. Smokey eyes become a staple and lip shades get bolder and bolder, but only some can only hope to be so daring and take the ultimate plunge into the most extreme of dark lip shades.

This Fashionista took the plunge and successfully rocked the ultra dark lip trend. She kept the look feeling very easy and not overwhelmingly, by counteracting the dark lip with a simple base for the face. She also kept her eyes pretty neutral, adding only an upper lid eyeliner. In doing so, her eyes are not competing with her lips, but rather complementing them. Her bold lip color is one only a few dare to even sample on at stores, but she proves it can be a very feminine but bold choice.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, start out with a neutral foundation or a tinted moisturizer. A tinted moisturizer could be a great option if you need a little less coverage and is also a great way to keep your face from feeling dried out as the temperatures continue to drop. To keep your eyes simple,add only a sleek black (or navy blue) eyeliner. Finally, make your lips pop with a strong bold matte lip color. For an even more precise lip line, finish off with a matching or complimentary lip liner.
