I love a dark lip, and black is no exception.

Although I didn't have any ghoulish parties to attend, here is the look I wore out to dinner on Halloween. 

To create this look, I used Addiction's Black or White palette. So please click here for swatches.

Look Breakdown: 
Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 in 031 (yup, still wearing my Summer color).
Addiction Blush in Nocturne (in the hollows of the cheeks).
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Metal Rock (blended into Nocturne and applied on the apples).
Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow Pencil in Seal Brown.
Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette in Black Or White: used the tuxedo black shadow to fill in and line the brows. 
MAC Mineralize Concealer in NW25.
Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette in Black Or White:
The wedding white shadow (in the inner corner blended into the inner half of the crease).
The tuxedo black shadow (all over the lid and lower lashline).
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero (tightline and waterline).
L'Oreal Waterproof Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.
MAC Lipmix in Black.

The camera's flash faded the intensity of the black shadow. 

What did you wear on Halloween?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. You look amazing and I could never rock such a dramatic eye OR lip let alone eye AND lip look. DId it take a lot of work to get the black lipstick off later?

    1. Not really. Some of the lipmix did settle into the line of my lips, but I thought it looked cool.

  2. You rock this look so well, beautiful x

  3. Love love it! I think your beautiful tan skin carries the black lip look off sooo well! And I love how you blended your shadow from white to black, soo perfect! Great job!

    1. I'm NC25-30 in mac, but I guess my lighting makes my skin look tan. It would be great to see you try this look :D

  4. You look AMAZING!!!! Perfect makeup on a perfect face. Aki must feel like a king having you at his side.

    1. Buggsie, can you come live with you PLEASE! I just want to keep you in a box, under my bed...sounds to morbid.

      Yeah, Aki feels that way, until our credit card bill arrives at the end of the month >:P

    2. Hahaha, he's no different to any of the other men out there ;)
      Mind you, I rather not have to see, let alone settle, my credit card bill at the end of the month either :(
      Especially around the change of seasons when all the pretty new stuff is sooooooooo tempting & makes a horrible looooong list of entries on my creditcard invoice.Boohoo:(

    3. How do credit cards work in Germany?

      In Japan. they're like an American Express card. You have to pay the full balance on your payment date. Also, you can only make payment on said due date...so restricting :(
