BEAUTY BAR: Vamp It Up

Marc Jacobs said: “I love the entire ritual of getting dressed. When we do a fashion show, we try to send out a message; we couldn’t do that without the hair and makeup. The whole is equal to the sum of its parts.”

Every Fashionista/o knows that an outfit is never truly complete without hair and makeup. As a self-proclaimed makeup junkie, I can definitely attest to this. An outfit can take on a completely different look depending on hair and makeup. With just a swipe of a new lipstick, you can completely change up almost any outfit.

One of the biggest makeup trends right now is a dark, bold lip. Though dark lipstick can be intimidating, because they come in so many different shades of purple, black, and even blue, you are sure to find a lipstick that is perfect for you. This Fashionista chose a lip color in deep, rich plum to complement her edgy look. Her pair of rocker-chic cage heels complements the staple of her outfit, a fantastic midi length tulle skirt. The contrast between the girly tulle skirt and dark vampy lipstick give her outfit a unique flare that is sure to be noticed.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this Fashionista’s bold look you will need to start off with a tinted moisturizer followed by a translucent powder. Add a shimmery highlight to your cheek bones and a light bronze blush to the apples of your cheeks. Prime your eyelid with a primer or concealer and pat a nude eye shadow all over the lid. Brush a taupe colored eye shadow into the crease, blending upwards. Finish off the eyes with a winged out cream liner and a few generous coats of mascara. To achieve a dark lip you will need to prime your lips with a concealer. Using a lip brush for precision, fill in your lips with a matte dark purple lipstick. Complete the look with a setting spray to insure that your makeup will last all day.
