Fall Beauty Trends: Smashbox Is Wicked Lovely

Throw out the rules this Fall because it's all about pairing moody eyes and lips together. Smashbox's newest collection for Fall, Wicked Lovely, allows you to be wicked in vampy shades or lovely in luminous nudes. And here at Makeup Junkie, we are loving both!
Wearing nudes never looked so lovely. There are 2 shadow duos to choose from. I got to try Wicked Lovely Eye Shadow Duo in Sexy/Demure ($24 USD), shimmery dark brown and shimmery ivory. I love basics and this is definitely one to have for everyday or to smoke it up at night. The texture is velvety and blends nicely onto the skin.

They can be very shimmery for day so I suggest applying the ivory shade in the inner corner and on the center of the lid. Wet a liner brush and line your eyes with the dark brown. Your eyes will look defined and luminous. For night, I used the dark brown shade on the lids and on the bottom lash line. I used the ivory on the brown bone and inner corner of the eyes. To smoke it out even more, I layered a matte dark brown into the crease. The results - wicked lovely.

Complete the look with a layer of Wicked Lovely Lip Gloss in Coy ($18 USD), a sheer nude. I've been a fan of Smashbox glosses and have quite a few. When you go nude, you don't want to go chalky. Coy is the perfect balance - gives the face a little bit of warmth yet is still subtle enough to compliment a smoky eye. You get a lot of colour from one swipe and a whole lot of sexy shine. It just hugs the lips and is ultra-moisturizing. Feelin' a little frisky? It comes complete with a naughty little tassle on the cap!

Have you tried Wicked Lovely? Love it? Hate it?
