Edgy & Sexy Fall Makeup

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Todays tutorial has a double inspiration behind it. The first burst came while I was talking about makeup with my friend Jamie. She mentioned some Burgundy and Grey liners and instantly I thought- what a fab color combo! I immediately made note of colors to use in a makeup tutorial- I love when inspiration comes like that.

While I was getting ready to make this video I was listening to the Black Key’s “10 Cent Pistol”. In the song a woman gets back at an ex-lover and their new partner with a “10 Cent Pistol”(which could mean either drugs laced with poison or Acid). Not really a cheery song, but I love that type of stripped down, distressed music. The Black Keys make the type of music you feel like you’ve known your whole life- you just instantly like them (at least I do) if you haven’t checked them out please do!

This look is rather glam with the bold eyes and lips, a fall color palette, straight hair and the Kardashian Kurve top that is covered in lipstick and shoes, and is perhaps at odds with the sound and theme of the music. I imagined the Heroine (or Villain, depending on your perspective) getting dolled up to ruin the lives of those who dun wrong’d her! Looking good is the best revenge anyway.
