Road Test: The Best Makeup on Pinterest
We tried the fall makeup trends everyone's pinning to help you figure out which looks are worth trying to mimic. Here are the ones to try
Smoky eye and red lipOne look that never goes out of style is the smoky eye/red lip pairing. My trick to pulling off this classic combo was selecting an eyeshadow that was more brown than black so it would complement the almost burgundy lip hue. I opted for Too Faced Natural At Night Neutral Eye Shadow Collection, $36. Then to highlight the lid and under-eye I layered on "Unbelievable" from Lorac Unzipped Eye Shadow Palette, $40. And after seeing Kat Dennings on the Emmy's red carpet wearing Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Iconic, $28, I knew it would be the perfect rich red tint for my lips.
My hints: To keep the smoky eye from looking too dark, don't use the same brush to apply and blend. Apply the dark shade along the crease and then use another clean, fluffy brush to blend outward. I also layered the liner on last so it would be one clean line -- no shimmery residue on top.
