Wear dramatic eye makeup and a bold lip color like Shingai Shoniwa, the edgy, lead singer of the London-based, indie rock group, The Noisettes. I dig everything about her style – from her sky-high pompadour and the application of her unconventional bold makeup choices, to her colorful wardrobe. Note to self: Incorporate more color into my closet for 2010. I salute this leading lady for daring to be herself amidst the pressures of society to conform to a generic idea of what beauty is.
For those of you itching to break out of the “generic” mold (at least for a few hours), wear dramatic eye makeup and a bold lip color like rock star Shingai with the help of Bare Esecntuals Tutorials – Rocker Eye ($38, sephora.com). And for those of you with deep skin tones like this leading lady, flatter your complexion by selecting a vibrant, rich peach lip color like Napoleon Perdis Devine Goddess Lipstick ($22, ulta.com) to bring out those gold undertones.
Tip: Even out two-tone lips by patting a cream foundation on them with a sponge or fingertip before applying lipstick.
Hue Knew It? I did.
