Trend Mode: Modern Gothic
It’s the Fall 2016 buzz word that re-hashes bringing plum and purple hues back into fashion with a touch of heavy eyeliner for that romantic and edgy vibe.
Winter is possibly the best time to experiment with heavy makeup looks and get away with daring styles to get ready and celebrate the Fall holiday season *cough*Halloween decisions*cough.* So unleash your inner vampire blood thirst to bring a whole lot of attitude to your outfit with these bloody fantastic fall colour makeup looks (bad pun intended).

Glow like the Sun
Maximise that blush and add a touch of colour over a plain canvas. You might think that the blush is doing all the work but it’s the blemish free skin that pulls it off in my opinion here. I used a duo blush to add dimension with a light and richer contrast look.

Like giving your eyes a 5pm shadow, the contour of black around the eyes creates a shadow not only on the lids, but the under eye area too to give a smokey hazed look. I used a purple hue here to give it a more romantic look.
Velvet Black Lips
Don’t be scared. If Taylor Swift can rock the near black lip then you can too. The key is to apply a gloss to get that wet look like liquid darkness.
Too scared to venture to the dark side just yet? Add a touch of red to make it more adaptable. Switch it up with a wine stain gradient to make it look freshly bitten. Either way, you decide which poison you choose.
Which one was your favourite?
Until Next Time!
