The Dark Duchess

  Okay so the only reason I called it the Dark Duchess is because I have been obsessed with watching Victorian Age movies and movies based off of Jane Austen books. My favorite one was The Duchess with Kira Knightly based off the true story of the Duchess of Devonshire. I LOVE IT. If you take interest in this genre of movies/books then you should definitely check this one out if you haven't already. 
  Anywaysss, I posted this picture of me on Instagram and Facebook the other day and have had pretty good feedback on it. So I thought I would post it on here and tell you the products that I used. It was a lot of fun, and as a lot of you know, I like to play with makeup when I'm bored, especially on my days off from work. And HEY could make for another Valentine's day look, if you like that dark type of thing.

Flirty Valentine's Day Look

  Yay! I'm finally posting something BEFORE the actual day/holiday so it is useful. I have decided to put together a Valentine's Day date look. I thought it would be fun, flirty and a little pouty. I decided to copy Kylie Jenner with the Botox overdrawn lips too. Take a look!
  I wanted it to be soft and cute on the eyes with a light shimmery pink and then bring out the lips with a sultry reddish/pink. I also overdrew the lips to make the look a little more sexy. I have noticed that if you want to over draw your lips, the best type of lip product to use is matte. Anything glossy will make your upper lip pop out and make it obvious you're wearing lipstick past your lips.
