The look this season is Goth inspired. Plums, wines and reds are all over the runways. I, the queen of the nude lip, am ready to trade in my light lipsticks for hot, wine colored reds and to have bold red lips. NYX Cosmetics has the perfect essentials to make this look happen! Below is my courageous inspired look that screams Fall!
(Love In Florence Palette in Prima Donna)
The NYX Love In Florence Palette In Prima Donna ($8.00) is perfect to give eyes the plum look this season. It has two shades of plum (wine and eggplant), a taupe, deep shimmering charcoal and a dark champagne color. To accompany this palette, use the Super Fat Eye Marker in Carbon Black ($10.00) for a gorgeous cat eye look. On the lower lid you can use the Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Charcoal ($4.50) to line the lower lid, or use on the brow if you have lovely raven toned hair. Cheeks are left bare or can be shaded with a very light pink shade.
On my lips I used the ubiquitous Wonder Pencil in Dark ($4.50) as a lip liner. This pencil can be used for many different things, which is why it is called the Wonder Pencil! It can be a concealer and also is great to brighten up the water line. My favorite use is as a lip liner. Then on top is the hot, gorgeous shade of the NYX Matte Lipstick in MLS 16 Merlot ($6.00). So freaking gorgeous!

Here is the look below. I used the shadows from the Prima Donna palette as so: the deep wine shade in the crease, then the eggplant shade on the outer edge of the lid, in the crease under the wine shade and also under my eye. I used the dark champagne shade on the lid and under the brow. I also used the deep shimmering charcoal to line under the eye. Then I used the Super Fat Eye Marker on the top lid.
I do believe that this Merlot color has to be one of the best colors I have ever used on my lips. The red helps to bring out the green in my eyes, someone said. I got a lot of compliments when I posted this look on Facebook. A lot of WOWs and ‘What color is that lipstick?” I did miss a tiny bit near my lid with the liquid eye liner, but otherwise I love this eye liner more than any other I have ever used. So much easier to use than any other!!! This look screams Fall/Autumn and I think it is really quite beautiful!
