My Inner Diva

I think that every woman needs to create and find an inner diva look - a mix of perfectly balanced bold eyes AND ever bolder lips.  The 'rule' is usually that you do a smokey eye with a nude lip or a bold lip with a neutral eye, but sometimes you just need to 'rock it' with glam shades and a diva attitude and go for 'bold' everything.  I wanted to create an edgy rock-star look, while still staying true to my best colours, so here is what I came up with:

For my eyes, I started with a natural toned base - navajo by bobbi brown (BB) and then applied heather mauve from the lid into the crease.  I jazzed it up with black plum eyeshadow (BB) in the crease and outer corners.  I then used lavender eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes and blended it into the lid - I used one of those fluffy eyeshadow brushes to blend the lavender into the heather mauve.  I then used Perma-plum liner (MAC) and with a heavy hand created a thicker line for the upper lashliner and used Mahogany shadow (BB) to smudge into the upper and lower lashlines.
I used Desert Rose blush (BB) and for my lips I used Currant lipliner (MAC) and blended in Baroque lipstick by Chanel and topped it with YSL #9 gloss - I love the finished look - check it out:

I've been creating really natural, soft looks lately, so it was nice to play around with the deeper shades and have some fun!!!

You don't really suit those colors on your eyes... Looks like a bruise.
