The Lipstick League – week of 11.10.14

Question of the Week: What’s your go-to party makeup look? Smoky eyes? Cat-eye liner? Bright lips?

EauMG’s Answer: Wow, I’m so flattered that you think I party 🙂 Honestly, it really depends on the occasion and the time of year. This time of the year, I’m most likely going to do minimal eye makeup and really dark lips. Other times of the year, I may do a matte red lipstick or bright coral with cat-eye liner. I rarely do smoky eyes but I do if the mood hits. And when I do that I like for it to look all Serge Lutens for Dior in the 70’s.
