Fall Makeup Look | Dark Lips

Hello! I recently bought a super dark purple lipstick from Mac called Instigator and was playing around with it. It's the darkest lipstick I own and slightly out of my comfort zone. I ended up really liking how this looked so I thought I would do a makeup post to go with it!


Face Makeup 

Benefit Porefessional, Makeup Forever Mat Velvet+, Mac Pro Longwear Concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Doll 10 palette- Sculpted for my contour, Dolled Up for my Blush, Glow for my highlight. 

Lips 

Mac Instigator over top of Nyx Nebula Lip Liner

Eyes 
I used the Tartelette Palette for my shadow. Wanderer as my transition shade, Power Play in my crease, Fashionista in the outter corner and lower lash line, Natural Beauty on the lid, and Super Mom in the inner corners. I used Loreal Lineur Intense for my eyeliner, UD shadow stick in Rehab in my water line, and Covergirl Super Sizer for my mascara. 


*My September favorites video should be up tomorrow! I wanted to do that post today instead but when I upload to YouTube, it steals all my internet so I get too impatient lol!! I will probably upload it tonight and do a post on it tomorrow! I'm wearing this makeup look in the video so you can all see it in action!*

What is your go to makeup look for Fall? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You're not kidding about the lipstick being very dark, it is very vampy and almost gothic but you pulled it off beautifully, Ashley! I have been bouncing between thick liquid eye liner with nude lips and bare eyes with dark lips, very boring I know. LOL!

  10. You look amazing in a dark berry lip! I still have yet to rock any dark shades this Fall, I really need to pick up a few myself from MAC since I only own nudes from them so far :} Such a great formula.
