A Time for
Danger Turn heads and catch eyes
with this seductive-yet-fun
makeup style that is perfect
for any event that you’ll be
attending in the fall
D ark, daring, and dangerous—that’s the look we
are capturing this fall regarding your makeup
style. We want our lips to make a bold state-
ment while downplaying the eyes and face. This
makeup takes a strong, conﬁdent woman to pull
it off and I know that you are just the girl to do so. Now,
nuzzle your Starbucks on the park bench while you watch
the fall’s gorgeous turning leaves ﬂoat to the ground, be-
cause you are about to learn how to achieve a sexy and eye-
catching makeup appearance.
This seductive style will deﬁnitely turn heads because it
is unique from the everyday natural look in regards to lip
color. Since we are using a deep burgundy red, we need to
keep the rest of the face neutral so the colors balance each

simple to do and will go with numerous outﬁt choices. If
you would like to wear this look during the day and the
deep red is too outgoing for your sense of style, you can try
a deep pink or another favorite color on the lip. Simply be

the entire face is not bland.

out different lip liners underneath your bright lips. If you
layer your lips, it will give the face more deﬁnition and draw
the eye to a more intriguing smirk of the mouth.

any type of lavish outﬁt. Like I mentioned before, the dark
lip works best for a night out on the town with your doll-

Here are the steps to achieving this look:
BLENDING IS BELIEVING
The ﬁrst step is to wash the face thoroughly so that the
skin is clean and makeup free, especially the eye makeup.
This step is signiﬁcantly important because this look calls
for no eyeliner, so we want to make sure all smudges and
mascara are removed beforehand. Then, we moisturize and
prime the entire face so the makeup lies ﬂat and smoothly
on the skin and lasts for hours.
For this particular look, we start with the eyes so that if
there is any shadow that falls, we can easily wipe it off be-
fore we move on to foundation. Begin by applying conceal-
