Smokey Eye & A Bold Purple Lip

Nicka L Amethyst Lipstick

Another Fall Makeup Look for you guys. This time it’s a simple light smokey eye that can go from day to night paired with a bold purple lip. This NK lipstick is another dupe for MAC Yung Rapunxel and only costs 99 cents at the local beauty supply store. The lip adds drama to the look and amps it up a notch or two, so you can lighten it for daytime if it’s too much for you.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    Hi Ms Fabulous..
    I love the look.. Just had a quick question. Does Nars Foundation seem to have more yellow undertones? In the photo, it seems as it does and is a different hue then other foundations you have used.. Just inquiirng before I go and buy it.. I ususually buy most of the stuff you use. 🙂

      Yup, it has more yellow undertones in it. I explain it in my review of the Sheer Matte here. As it sets it leans more neutral, and definitely not orange or red. That is why I love it so much, it made me realize that a lot of my other foundations are too red. Hope that helps 🙂

    You look so pretty and I love that lipstick! Do you always use a lip liner with your lipstick? You have THE best stuff! Have you done a makeup post showcasing all of your makeup before?

      Nope most of the time I don’t use lip liner. I’ve never done a post showcasing everything as my collection is always changing. I’m in the process of purging again so maybe when I’m done 🙂
