As of late, we’ve been prepping for fashion week, shopping the fall collections, and praying it will be cool enough to break out our favorite leather jackets. Those perfect Fall looks would not be complete though without a new beauty routine! If you’re as ready for Fall as we are, you’ve already ditched the self tanner and are ready to get into the sultry shades and moody blues that have been popping up everywhere. The Gothic inspired look had many incarnations on the Fall runways with shiny blue shadow and nude lips at Prabal Gurung, and plum pouts and shimmery lids at Rochas. The Met Gala was also a big night for the Goth-glam look, with celebs like Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth donning dark rouge lips, and model Joan Smalls sporting a serious smokey eye. If you’re looking to experiment with makeup from the dark side, follow in these models’ footsteps and pick one feature to accentuate. The Gothic beauty trend is meant to be sultry-not sinister. If you’re a lipstick lady looking for a long-lasting shade, dark enough for the True Blood cast, we recommend Guerlain’s L’extrait Lip color in Luxure (the shade was named for the cardinal sin, lust.) If you’ve perfected the smokey eye and are looking to take on the buzzed about blue shadow from the Prabal runway, make sure to create a base first using Urban Decay’s top selling Eyeshadow Primer potion. So which look will you choose?
