This fall, I decided to stray away from the usual boring burgundy lipstick and experiment with some poppin’ pinks and purples. As much as I love the vampy lips and brown halo eyes, I thought it was high time I explored other colors.
So, keeping in mind the color palette this year, I picked a deep purple and a lighter pink lip, to experiment with; as a NYX addict, I chose the “Amethyst” and “Antwerp” shades. Also, the base makeup is the same for both looks and I simply added an orange bronzer from Colorbar Cosmetics for the look in which I’m sporting the shade, “Antwerp.”

That’s the best part about these looks—you can change them so effortlessly just by switching the lip color!
And now, here’s a step-by-step tutorial, full with products, on how to rock these two shades!
Products and Make Up:
NARS Radiant Concealer (shade, “Custard”): Next, I applied the concealer under my eyes in a triangular shape, my cupid’s bow, chin, and forehead, and used a damp blender to work it into my skin.
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: This powder was used to keep the foundation and concealer in place.
MAC Eyes x 15 Warm Palette: For the eyes I used the black, brown, and copper shades on the left most column. I then used the three nude shades on the right most column to create a hooded, pink and gold effect. I also went in with my Kat Von Dee Tattoo Eyeliner to line the top of my eyes and used Bobbi Brown Kohl Pencil to tight line.
