Probably my favorite trend for this season is the combination of deep, wine-hued lips paired with pewter-toned eyes. Of course, pairing both of these trends together in one look could totally spell disaster, but it is all about balance! And of course, pairing both trends together is not a look a lot of people can get away with. Even though above it looks like I pulled it together, in real life I looked supremely goth, and not in a good way. Of course, I have to go a bit extra-dramatic when taking pictures so the makeup can translate better.
If you're going to go with the vampy lip, a nice wash of a shimmery pewter color all over your lid into the crease will pair well, along with a nice lengthening and volumizing mascara. On the reverse side, if you're going with a pewter smokey eye, pair it with either a light pink lip or a slight berry tint on the lips. Pictured above, I am wearing Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Entwined, paired with a combination of Benefit Creaseless Shadow in Skinny Jeans + Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire. I used a combination of a gray-toned purple taupe with the pewter cream shadow to bring out the purple tones in the lipstick.
I compiled a list of high-end and drugstore products that are perfect for any budget if you want to achieve this look. Now you have no excuse to not try out this trend!
