Get the look: Drama Darks!


Deep, dark lips and dramatically lined eyes are the signature makeup moves of the season, and no one does them better than makeup artist Tyron Machusen. “Layer on dark liner and then red, eggplant, or berry-toned lipstick and gently blend it out to soften the edge for this glamorous look,” says Machusen.


This look is cat-eye gone glam and it starts with a layer of beige cream liner, blended on the entire lid. For the winged effect, swipe black liner from the inner corner of the eye (on the upper and lower lids), right against the lashline, to the outer corner and then angle it up and out. Add two coats of black mascara to intensify the look, and keep brows in check with clear brow gel.

Load up on a dark shade of lipstick (or gloss) and then dab it onto the lips with your fingers or a lip brush to create a deep, stained effect that lasts all day.
