Look of the Month :: Fall 2012 :: October

October has always been an active month for me, probably like it is for most people as well. It's the beginning of the holidays, the cold air brings us inside together, exciting new work opportunities always seem to pop up, there are places to go, and people to see in the evenings. It's a great month.

So for this look I wanted to stay simple yet sultry, almost with a retro Twiggy feel to the makeup, focusing most of the attention on the lower lash line. It's definitely something to go with all of that oxblood, and if you're feeling a little extra confident, switch up the nude lips with a bright red. I did that a few days ago and it was just lovely. Fashion this season is all about decedent colors, prints, and textures (like velvet), so makeup is trending pretty matte right now, specifically lips and nails, to counterbalance that beautifully.          

The current look is:
