FOTD: Dramatic Fall Look with A Dark Bold Lip

Dramatic fall look with a dark bold lip

I finally decided to post some truly fall dramatic look with proper dark saturated fall lip color.

Since I'm working and rarely have the chance to go out and wear looks like these, I have only one option: to rock them at work. Yep, believe it or not, I did wear this look to work, but only because there is no dress-code in the company I work for, and I basically sit in front of my computer the whole day. So no one would care less about what I'm wearing either on my face or on my body, hence the freedom for me to wear whatever I want :) (even though I rarely go to extremes). But if your work place is different, I suggest to reserve this type of look for some night out because it is not really daytime or work appropriate. Be reasonable with it.

However, you could of course adapt it to suit your day-time needs by skipping the eye-shadows altogether and going for a thinner line of your liquid liner and blotting the lips slightly to get just a berry color stain effect rather than a full-on shiny dark lip color.

If you want to wear it as is, feel absolutely free to do so for a special occasion. I think it would make a great statement look for any party or night out of any sort. You'll definitely make an impression and will be remembered :).

Anyhow, I really love how the look turned out though. The superstar of it is definitely the lipstick. It is Clarins Rouge Eclat lipstick in 06 True Aubergine, which I am loving to pieces. It's gorgeous! This is such a rich sophisticated shade that will suit everybody, literally everybody. The pale girls like myself can rock it and the darker skinned beauties will look absolutely hot in it too, so if you want to get this one great dark berry-type fall shade, then get this one. It's amazing quality and equally amazing color.

  1. Beautiful job! I would wear this in a conservative work environment as well because the eyes are subtle n' the lips are POPPIN! LOL

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you liked the look. I would probably not dare to wear it to say the bank or ... or maybe I would lol, I don't know... Maybe if I were some kind of CEO or something ))).
