Makeup Tutorial - Modern Vamp

Since you guys were awesomely nice about my last makeup tutorial, I thought I'd start trying to do them a bit more regularly! Really, I appreciate all the nice words you sent my way.  

Fall is coming, fucking finally, and that means that fall makeup is coming too. I've been seeing a ton of great makeup looks on Pinterest with really dark, vampy lips that are paired with a pretty, simple, neutral-toned eye so I thought I'd give that a go. In case you haven't stumbled across any of these gorgeous pictures yet:

The key to these looks is to create a nice, clean base for your skin. You want to buff the shit out of your foundation, and really take the time to cover any dark circles or blemishes. I like pairing these dark lips with really pretty, pink blush and soft shimmery eyes to keep it more sophisticated and less "Hey mom, can you pick me up outside of Hot Topic later?" And don't be afraid to draw on that little heart beauty mark, you're already wearing fucking black lipstick, you've got nothing to lose.

And your final product will end up something like this- 

Products Used: 
Rimmel Clean Finish in Ivory
Aveeno Calming Moisturizer + SPF
L'oreal True Match in Porcelain
ELF Tone Correcting Powder
L'oreal Blush in Plum
Cover Girl Cheekers in Soft Rose
Urban Decay Naked Palette in Sidecar and Gunmetal
NYX Automatic Brow Pencil in Auburn
Benefit Bad Gal Lash
MAC Cyber lipstick
Wet and Wild Mega Liner in Black
Isadora Red Lipgloss

If there are any specific looks you'd like a tutorial on, please let me know! Also, for the month of October, I will be featuring Halloween costume makeup tutorials, so if you know what you want to be, but not quite how to pull it off, leave a comment here and I'll do my best to do a step-by-step breakdown for you.

  1. I'm in deep love with you. Gonna follow you on IG now. :3

  2. i'm def going to try the vampy lipstick w/gloss and see if it makes it easier for me to pull it off. it looks perf on you!

  3. レイバン サングラスを持ってる人に、質問がしたいと思う。レイバン wayfarerシリーズが最近の主流みたいだが、個人的にはあいうクラシックなモデルが苦手なので、断念。後は、セレブ達の間に人気のあるレイバン aviator、メタルフレームがカッコいいとは思うが、重たくないの?重たくなければ、購入したいと考えている。
