I wanted to try and create my own evening look with elegant eyemakeup and a deeper lip. Its easy to get carried away in the process of applying your makeup - overdoing the eyes just a tad too much or going too dark on the lips. I personally really like this look that I created. Its perfect for that glam evening out - I'm not wearing any earings or accessories in this photo, but with the right diamond studs, pendant and little black dress, this is the 'perfect' makeup:
For this look I started with my usual base - corrector/concealer by Bobbi brown and HD Foundation in #125 by Make Up For Ever. I then applied DolceVita blush by NARS. For the lips I used Burgundy lipliner (MAC) with Baroque lipstick (Chanel). For a dramatic eye, I started with Aspen Summit shadow as a base and the applied Ashes to ashes eyeshadow (NARS) from the lid into crease. I lined my eyes with smolder eyeliner (MAC) and used Night Breed by NARS which I smudged into the upper lash line.
Having a 'go to' evening look is important because its always nice to go a little bit more dramatic and use deeper shades at night. It gives off that vixen-seductress allure! What are some of your favourite evening looks? I'd love to hear from you!
