Thrifted vest, Charlotte Russe dress, We Who See ankle boots

Every so often, I'll run into a rut in the morning when I'm getting dressed. I'll throw something on but it will just be missing...something. In the case of this dress and vest combo, I wanted to add to the vampy-ness of the dress, but I didn't want to overdo it, so I turned to makeup! I'll mix my own lipstick from time to time, and I've been dying to really go crazy!

So being the nutcase I am, I tried this look out at school and people seemed to like it! Of course, the whole your-lips-are-blue-you-must-be-a-zombie joke was kinda unavoidable

If you want to do this yourself, it's really important that you use a really good moisturizing balm since powder can very easily just suck all of the moisture out of your lips. I started out with one of my all-time-favorite balms, Blistex Lip Medex. My mom has gotten me hooked on this stuff ever since I was little! It's especially great in the winter. The color came from Urban Decay's Deluxe Eyeshadow in Ransom. I didn't just choose this color for how batshit crazy it is, but how highly pigmented the shadow is. It stayed on forEVER and I didn't have to touch it up very much. Finally, I kept everything in place with Bobbi Brown's fabulous SPF 15 lip tint (unfortunately, this was a limited edition product and I can't really find it anywhere online).

So basically, here's the formula:
moisturizing lip balm + super pigmented eye shadow/powder + non-sticky gloss or balm = awesome

go nuts my pretties!
