How To Nail The Moody Makeup Look

Coming into fall, it’s all about darker, moody makeup and it is so easy to create the look. You’ll fall in love with our beauty selections below, which will leave you feeling sultry as a can be.


Add drama to your eyes

Deborah Perfect Smokey Eye Shadow

A great starting point is a smokey eye and the best product for an intense gaze is the Deborah Perfect Smokey Eye Shadow. It comes in a black colourway which consists of a shimmer black, matte black and dark grey eyeshadow, plus a couple of lighter ones for the corners of the eyes and under the brow arch. Build the darker eyeshadows, blending layer on layer depending on the intensity you’re after. Apply the darker greys on the main lid, paying particular attention to the outer corners and smoke outwards. Lastly, apply the black glitter shadow for a festive look.


Find your fifty shades 

Max Factor lip gloss and lipsticks

The whole spectrum of reds through to berry shades are also suited to the season, so why not try out this colour on the lips? The Max Factor Lipfinity Colour & Gloss Lip Gloss gives your lips a high definition shine, and even better, it lasts up to 10 hours so reapplication is minimal. A top tip is to apply all over the lips with a little added extra to the middle of the lips, as it will create a fuller effect. The whole range of Atomic Red Mat Lipstick is great for sexy lips and we especially love lippy in the shade of ‘Red Bordeaux’ as it’s got that dark, extra-moody factor. Just team it with a little black dress and you’ll be sure to turn heads. If a liquid lipstick is more your thing, try the New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick by Maybelline. Their shades of ‘Voyager’ and ‘Pioneer’ are deep, rich reds and they also have a shade called ‘Creator’ which is more of a classic plum colour.


Polish your nails

Gel Look Nail Polish

A classic way to also rock the fall look is via clean, dark nail polish. Go black or go home, with Gel Look Nail Polish for a goth vibe, or try the ‘Red Garnet’ colour, which is totally irresistible and a complete must-have for your beauty collection.
