Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: Purple Glitter | Dramatic Fall Makeup

Purple Glitter | Dramatic Fall Makeup






Are you tired of all of the fall makeup looks yet? No? Me either. This is the time where my favorite trends come alive and new ones are created. For sure I LOVE wearing darker lips and even though I'm not one to care about when it's appropriate to wear dark lipsticks it does fit better with this weather, The cold air just goes well with dark dramatic makeup (and a black leather jacket to complete the badass effect)

Today I was feeling inspired and I decided to do a more glam fall makeup look. I used purples because in my opinion purples are perfect for brown eyes and women of color. And you just can't go wrong with a purple ombre lip (right?!) 

To change it up a little bit I used some glitter. WARNING: It is not recommended that you use glitter near your eyes. It can irritate them if it falls in there or cause damage. So if you do decide to use glitter PLEASE be very careful!!!!

When I use glitter, I use duo lash glue to adhere it to my skin. This prevents the glitter from getting all over the place or falling in my eyes. I used a small angled brush that I didn't mind losing if it got ruined. I applied a small amount of glue to it and applied the glue to my lid, and before the glue dried I dipped the same brush into some glitter and applied the purple glitter over the glue. You have to be quick with it because the glue dries fast but you have to also be careful and precise. 

Since the eyes were a little more dramatic and I also wanted to add a bold lip I decided to add a light eye liner to my waterline. By using a light pencil you open up your eyes and it helps to soften the look as well. You could also use a white eye liner but in my opinion white eye liners makes the look bolder and it can be a little more harsh. But it all depends on the look you are going for. 

To create the ombre lip, I started with the darker color which was Cyber from MAC, and only applied it as an outline to my lips leaving the center empty. In the center I applied 3 Witches from Pretty Zombie Cosmetics (you can see it in all its glory with a review HERE)






There you have it folks. A dramatic purple makeup look with a sprinkle of glitter to brighten up your day!

  3. I freaking love this look! You should try Lit glitters, they have this liquid to apply it with and it doesn't ruin your brushes either. Best part? No fall out! And yes I realize I sound like an ad, but I'm serious lol. Either way, I absolutely love this look!
