BEAUTY BAR: Drama Queen

Now that November is in full swing and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to whip out your most daring shades to shake up your beauty routine this holiday season. Earth tones are in, but that doesn’t mean you can’t amp up the drama of an outfit with a killer makeup regime.

This Fashionista pulled out all the stops—the most bold starts with her magnetic purple lipstick. Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experiment with bright colors. To balance out her electric lip, she fell back on a classic yet versatile eyeliner that makes a statement without overdoing it. If you’re into an even more subtle style, but still want to take risks with your makeup, don’t be afraid to fall back (pun very much intended) on those neutral earth tones and seasonal layers to tone down your makeup—while still packing a punch. This Fashionista’s look is a perfect match for her grunge-yet-glam outfit, complete with the perfect little black booties, a cozy cable knit sweater and a structured messenger bag.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: The best thing about this look is that you can create a dramatic vibe with only a few products. Less is more, and that goes for what’s in your makeup bag. Start with a rich and daring purple for your lips, like Milani’s Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick in Matte Glam. Keep the eye adventurous and simple with the perfect mascara/eyeliner combo. Draw a bold line with Too Faced’s Perfect Eyes waterproof gel eyeliner in Perfect Black, and tie it all together with Lancome Definicils mascara in Deep Black. Now take a bow, darling!
