As the fall season approaches, we’re inspired by the sign of Scorpio to try out some dark and mysterious makeup trends. Here are three looks to try:
1. The Gothic Glamour Look
For this look, think black eyeliner and mascara, smoky eyeshadow, and deep burgundy lips. To get the perfect gothic glamour look, start with a clean face and apply a foundation or BB cream that matches your skin tone. Next, use a black pencil eyeliner to line your upper and lower lash lines. Smudge the liner with a brush or your fingers for a softer effect. Apply several coats of volumizing mascara to both your top and bottom lashes. Fill in your brows with an eyebrow pencil or powder for added definition. Finally, sweep on some deep burgundy lipstick (try MAC’s Russian Red Lipstick) or lip gloss and you’re good to go!
2. The Dark Angel Look
This look is all about playing up those sultry Scorpio vibes with winged eyeliner, false lashes, and nude lips. Start by applying foundation or BB cream as usual (we love Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation). Then use a liquid eyeliner pen (we like L’Oreal’s Infallible Super Slim Liner) to draw wings that extend slightly beyond the outer corners of your eyes. Apply several coats of black mascara (we like Maybelline’s Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara) to both your top AND bottom lashes for an extra-dramatic effect. Finally, finish things off with nude lipstick or gloss (try NYX Cosmetics’ Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée). And don’t forget those falsies! They’ll really help give you that dramatic ‘dark angel’ look we’re going for here..
