One of the hottest makeup trends of the season is wearing a vampy matte plum shade of lipstick … And I just realised that I love it! Although dark, vampy colours like this have a reputation to look ‘goth-ish’, if it’s worn right it doesn’t have to look gothic at all! I didn’t really get into the trend until now because it’s currently summer here in South Africa and plum lipsticks are more of a fall/winter trend … But then I did my Skyfall Bond Girl Makeup Tutorial and I realized that the colour is perfect for a hot evening look whether it’s winter or not! … Which also makes it perfect for the holidays!
I love Bond movies and one of the things I like the most about Bond Movies is to see the Bond Girls’ looks! In fact, seeing what the Bond Girls are wearing and how they do their hair and makeup is sometimes my favourite parts of the movies! … I saw Skyfall about two weeks ago on the opening night here in South Africa and actress Bérénice Marlohe who played the Bond Girl ‘Severine’ definitely did NOT disappoint! I was in complete ‘awe’ of how absolutely stunning she looked! … Everything from her gorgeous gown to her hair and of course … her makeup! She had an absolutely gorgeous sultry version of a ‘reverse smoky eye’ which is a huge makeup trend for 2013 and is a perfect look for holiday parties! So of course I had to try it! This is how I got the look.
