TUTORIAL: Elegant Date Night with Ombré Lips10:19 AM
Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share a tutorial with you that was composed of the various elements of Saks 5th Avenue's Fall beauty lookbook. This look features a soft, golden smokey eye, glowing skin, and these striking ombré lips which I am currently obsessed with. Although not shy of color, the finished face gives off a very pulled-together look which is perfect for a romantic date with your favorite person.

I wanted to share close-ups of the makeup on both eyes and lips to give a better idea of the completed look. The upper lid of the eyes are smokey but kept quite subtle to let the pop of navy blue on the lower lash line really shine through. You can use any color for this but this Diorshow Waterproof liner in Navy is a favorite of mine since it makes the whites of eyes look whiter.
The lips, of course, are my absolute favorite part of the look. There's something about ombré lips that just screams sexy to me. Here I used the user-friendly NARS Satin Lip Pencils in Majella (red) and Yu (hot pink) which are both gorgeously pigmented and feel great on the lips. To give a ridiculous amount of shine, I added a Le Métier de Beauté clear lipgloss to just the center of the lips to give them that 3-D effect.
The final face is clean yet eye-catching with an emphasis on both eyes and lips but not overwhelmingly so. It's a great choice for looking classy and glamorous for your night out. I'd love to know if you try out this tutorial (or any of my other looks) so feel free to send photos to my twitter or facebook!
