I've mentioned that I’ve been making an effort to be more experimental with LOTW these days, and although I was generally underwhelmed by the fashion at the Met Gala this past weekend, I certainly found plenty of beauty inspiration. 

Two things I noticed on a few different celebs were super dark lips and barely-there brows. I decided to play with both of these elements and come up with something fun to share with you babes.

You guys know I'm ride-or-die for blush, but I decided to skip my normal flush and contoured my forehead and cheek bones using my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. I also used the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Moonstone to add extra glow on the tops of my cheekbones and down the center of my nose. 

Finally, I lined my lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth and layered on a deep purple liquid lipstick on until it looked almost black (I used the Australis Velourlips in Mum-bai that Morgan sent me) . 

I'm a little scared of myself right now, but also kind of into it...

This look is interesting to me because it’s not particularly pretty (which is the overall aesthetic I typically aim for) but it is definitely a look. I applaud celebs for taking a chance on more out-there look because I'm sure it takes some amount of courage!

Speaking of looks, here are my favorites from last week:
