Crossing Over to The Dark Side

 It is yet ANOTHER rainy day in jolly ole England!  Am I complaining?  Absolutely not!  If it hadn't been for this lovely English weather, who knows when I would've completed my post today?  The sunny days are getting more few and far between, with each passing day  as dreary as the next; a sure sign that summer is on its way out.  What better excuse than to adopt the re-emerging goth trend that is sweeping the Autumn/Winter runway shows!  Why fight the gloom?  You know what they say: "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"  I don't know about you, my fierce fashionistas, but I am totally on board!

If there's one thing to be learned about this season's collections, it is that black is back!  More and more designers have crossed over to the dark side, and I'm tickled pink!  Or should it be black?  And, as always, when trends change, it's usually in both the fashion AND makeup scene.

Burgundy lips paired with light foundation are all the rage and I am loving it!  It gives a very dramatic "porcelain doll" effect. Have no fear if you are not a fan of burgundy or  if *Gasp* it is not in your color wheel.  Darken your favorite lip color with a brown eye pencil, or, if you're feeling particularly daring...use black. If this trick is good enough for the industry's premier makeup guru's, it's good enough for this fashionista!

Prada's Autumn/Winter show revealed an opposite approach in going for a (very) dramatic eye and pale lips.  Eyes a little too extreme for your liking?  It's nothing a little smokey eye can't fix!  Definitely a more subtle approach, but still VERY effective.   Make sure to tread this season's makeup trend carefully because it definitely has the potential  to become too much too fast, and before you know it, this could be you:

Lets be real: The only person with enough sex appeal and cool points to pull this look off is Johnny Depp!

Stay Fashionably Fabulous!
