This is more of an editorial look, but it's still easily wearable as an evening look... I was inspired by the chic 30s make-up looks, think Marlene Dietrich and her iconic alabaster face & dark lip... My fascination with M.D. begun when I was doing my film degree... I loved her in The Blue Angel, where she played the dangerous and irresistible femme fatale Lola... I kept the eyes as bare as possible with the Dior 3 Couleurs Glow palette in Nude Glow [I have done a review on it already, but I have to rave about it again as it's become one of my most used palettes currently, stay tuned!] - and a for the lips I went for the darkest lip I could find, keeping the face flawless resembling a porcelain doll...
For the lips I used YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres in 1 Violet Edition... It's like an intensely dark plum with a hint of purple undertones... In the tube the colour looks a lot more purple than it goes on so don't be put off by it... Also you don't have to wear it as dark, but you can build it up as I did for an intense look... This is a much talked about beauty item everyone talks about in the beauty world this autumn... It's quite unique - a mixture of a lip gloss, stain, and lipstick, all in one... As you can see on the pics it starts off as very glossy but it has the pigmentation and consistency of a lipstick... After a while the gloss wears off and you are left with a stain, which looks like you are still wearing a lipstick... It won't be as intense as before but you won't look like you need to reapply it either... YSL lip stain comes in 19 beautiful shades!
