Winter Makeup: Smokey Eye and Burgundy Lip

Hey Pixies! 
So I know I'm a day late, let's just move on!
So I thought I'd show you a look that I have recently fallen in love with for this time of year. You could say that the burgundy lip is quite Autumny however I feel that paired with a cooler toned, shimmery smokey eye, it really brings the look right into winter! 


Revlon - Colour Stay
Benefit - Erase Paste
Collection - Lasting Perfection Concealer
Rimmel - Stay Matte Powder
Sleek - Contour Kit
Nars - Orgasm 


Rimmel - Exaggerate Undercover Eye Primer
Urban Decay - Naked Basics Palette - Foxy, W.O.S, Naked 2, Crave
Clinique - Chocolate Chip 
Urban Decay - Naked Palette - Hustle, Sin, Half Baked
Collection - Eyeliner Felt tip Pen
Maybelline - Gel Eyeliner


Urban Decay - Naked Basics - Naked 2, Faint


Revlon - Black Cherry Lipstick
Maxfactor - Bewitching Coral Lipstick

I hope you liked this post guys and that you like this makeup look and it's quite dramatic for me as I don't usually wear bold eyes and lips at the same time. However if you don't like the bright lips paired with the smokey eyes then a nude or pale lip would look just as nice. For example MAC Hue, Creme Cup or Topshop Nevada would look lovely! 

So there you go! I hope you enjoyed!
What makeup looks are you enjoying for this winter?


  1. I love your lip color! I really want to get Black Cherry now x

    Živa from Nothin' Fancy. Really.

    1. Thanks! Black Cherry on its own, although still gorgeous, is much darker but mixed with a pink is just beautiful! :) x

  2. You are so gorgeous! I love this look :)

  3. Love this look, especially that lip stick!
