BEAUTY BAR: Glow, Vampira, Glow!

Winter is all about contrast. As the stark, white snow falls, it is bright against the black canvas of the ever-night sky during this time of the year in Montreal. This Fashionista similarly brings a vampy, berry lip which makes the rest of her frame glow in contrast. Just like MSGM’s models from Massimo Giorgetti’s 2015-2016 winter/fall line, she pairs a soft natural look with a dark lip. The perfect canvas for such a bold color.

The rich hue of her lips instantly grabs attention and highlights this Fashionista’s natural beauty. Keeping the rest of her face makeup simple and clean she was able to showcase the crispness of her lip color. This look is perfect for on the go, during this busy season. With a quick swoop of eyeliner and a dab of highlighter, you are all ready to go.

Completely versatile, any Fashionista can work this look at any event from a regular day at class or a snuggly date with boo. Although I do suggest, for date night it might be better to opt for a lip stain to maintain kissable lips while still getting kissed, such as the Anastia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick or for a drugstore version perhaps the NYX Matte Lip Creams.

To complement her flawless look, she paired a cropped turtleneck to bring focus to her face with a staple, high-waisted black skinny jeans. Surprisingly, a thick winter coat and winter boots are not necessary everyday this winter; so she opted for a military green jacket and chunky boots to complete the look.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Using Kat Von D’s Ink Liner in Trooper, you can create the perfect winged cat-eye which will last all day without worry. For the vampy lips, this Fashionista used Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Vampira. Lastly, to get that perfect glow, she reached for her favorite Carli Bybel palette from BHCosmetics.
