I'm not one to follow the "rules" in makeup. You should be able to wear any kind of makeup ANY time of year. Makeup is about having fun and experimenting! With that being said though, dark lips and sultry eyes are perfect for the Fall season. Don't be afraid to play with color on the eyes and lips at the same time. The key is bronzing up the skin and giving it that special glow so you don't look like a dead clown with dark sultry eyes, dark lips and boring pale skin. Balance is key! Skin is just as important as your eyes and lips and if you are going to put effort in one, you have to put effort in them all! Some rather just pop on some mascara and a dark lip, but in my opinion Go big or Go Home! Don't be afraid to be bold and fabulous. Need some suggestions for some dark lips??? Well I got you…. for those of you who are just hopping onto the dark lip bandwagon and still a little hesitant, start with something like "Pops" from NYX cosmetics Butter Lipsticks line. Its a beautiful brown mauve shade that is a nice satin formula, and gives just enough color without being over the top. For those of you who aren't afraid of this trend and looking for some lip colors, Maybellines "Touch of Spice," is a beautiful dark reddish brown (a couple steps up from Pops). And those of you who want to be totally bold and vibrant try MAC Cosmetics Rebel, Cyber, Diva and Milani cosmetics lipstick in "Sangria." If you are wondering my makeup details in this picture… You're gonna have to head over to my instagram @makeup_bymckenna (just click the instagram icon at the very bottom of the page). Have a fabulous day, and remember to be bold and beautiful! And Hopefully you'll start rocking those dark lips this fall and winter!
