FOTN: Makeup Rule Violated. (dramatic eyes and bold lips

They always say never do dramatic eyes with bold lips. Either do one or the other to create balance. For example, if you're doing dark eye makeup, it's best to pair it with nude lips or if doing light eye makeup, try bold lips for a pop of attitude. This is a common makeup rule which I happily violated ^_^
I did a slight dramatic eyes with bold red lips just because I want to!!!! Its worth the risk and the outcome in my opinion is pretty! Feel free to criticize :)

I'm using my mom's Sony Cybershot camera and, I must say that its better than my Canon one. The photos came out crisp and saturated.

A dark grey eye shadow with slight shimmer. I love this color. I was surprised the pigmentation is really good and the texture is smooth and very easy to blend. It's only $4.50.

  11. I love dark eye and lip combinations. They are so much more fun. I also like paring dark eyes with a bright lipstick for a bit of contrast.
    This look is beautiful on you.

  14. You look stunning! I think almost any look can be pulled off as long as it's applied well, and of course yours is always applied flawlessly.
