Sometimes we need a little inspiration…

The holidays are here and it can be a fun time to experiment with makeup so I decided to create a digital “lookbook” featuring holiday makeup looks to inspire you.  In the weeks leading up to New Year’s Eve I will be showing you product recommendations and tips & tricks for amping up your holiday game-makeup style!

Today features the 1st volume, a fabulous spotlight on dark lipstick.  I know it’s a little “out there” but I am obsessed with dark lipstick.  If you are nervous but willing to try, start at a color you’re comfortable with and work your way up to a darkened hue.  You can also try buying a lip liner a few shades darker than what you normally wear and pair it with a medium toned lipstick you already have in your makeup bag.  Apply the lipstick and liner like you normally would but gradually add more lipliner to the outer corners of your lips, working your way in.  Stop when you feel comfortable and use your ring finger to blend it in if you need to.

Dark lips are not for date night, they are for girls night and weekend brunches.  Boys do not appreciate dark lipstick the way we do so do not even try to go there.  I had my gorgeous model Taylen pair the look with a far side hair part and messy beach waves.  This counter-balances the dark lipstick perfectly along with the soft and cozy oversized sweater.

Not only is Taylen gorgeous, but she’s also a talented hairstylist and styled her own hair for our shoot!  She used “Beach Waves” spray by Loreal Professional to create this look and I think it added an amazing look and texture to her hair.  Excuse me while I go buy 15 bottles!

For lips, we used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Transylvania.”  I also used the NYX lip liner in “Dark Red” to shape her lips before I filled them with the stain.
