Fall is here and we’re all striving for the same thing, effortlessly beautiful skin. Actually, I want that all year round, who am I kidding? While barely-there makeup is my ideal situation, I’m also fond of the high contrast dark lippie with an almost bare face. It’s perfect for a night out or just adding some drama to your usual look.
One of the easiest ways to give your skin a boost is to dust some light-reflecting powder on the high points of the face – cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. I love the Illuminating Powders from Bobbi Brown because they come in 6 shades, which means it’ll look more natural on my olive complexion.
Eyebrows should always be on fleek. I have a few brow pencils from powders to gels in my makeup bag but these days I’m always reaching for The Perfectly Defined eye brow pencil. I got mine in the shade Saddle and I find it matches my dark eyebrows perfectly and leaves them looking natural as opposed to filled in.
Finally, the dark lip to complete this vampy look! For true drama, I love Black Plum from the Nourishing Lip Colour Collection. Even the name is dramatic! For a daytime look, wear it as a stain on the lips and for an evening look, pair it with a lip liner for some real oomph and stay power. If Black Plum is too intense for your liking, check out Russian Doll from the Luxe Lip Colour collection. It’s a browny-red colour that’s flattering on many skin tones and looks more natural but it’s still dramatic and elegant.
