Trends | The Lady is a Vamp

I want to start this off by saying this is NOT a tutorial. I'm not a make up artist or any kind of expert in applying make up. I just love playing with it and trying new trends. I've really wanted to try out this new vampish trend that seems to going around this autumn so I thought I would share the results with you!
I'd bought a couple new products to help with this as well so let me talk you through it...

For me, the idea of a vamp look is the eyes and the lips. Keep the eyes nice and dark and the lips deep and berry-ish. For the eyes I used new Bourjois Cream to Powder eyeshadow in Prune Nocturne, a deep purple berry with hints of gold flecks through it. I popped this all over the lid, adding another layer through the crease and lash line. Then I used Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Crayon in Blackmail as a liner along the lash line. Then, my usual Chanel Intense Eyepencil in Noir along the waterline. Add L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara and you had a nice vamp eye. I also used Soap&Glory Kick Ass concealer under the eye to help create a porcalin affect under the eye, just to make the eyes stand out more.

For the lips I used Mac Lip Liner in Cherry to create a nice matte base and outline, then I covered it with Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in 107. Both create a gorgeous dark vampy berry colour on the lips that make them stand out and make your skin look paler.

I love this look, it's quite a subtle vamp-ish look for me, I could have gone darker with the eyes probably but I'm not usually one for really dark eyes so I wanted something a little lighter as everyone is different. Again, I'm not a make up artist so there are probably better ways to create this look but hey, this is just me.

How would you create your vamp look?
