Femme Boulevard: Ushering 2013 With Style

Femme Boulevard is a group of beauty bloggers that post monthly themed looks. That's not unlike us Lipstick Bandits. Well guess what: the Femme Boulevard members invited other blogers, among which some of the Lipstick Bandits, to join for a New Year stylish celebration!

The mission: metallic eyes and vampy lips. I was too happy to accept this collaboration and create a dramatic face.

What I used to create this look:
- Nars Sheer Glow in Gobi is my base of choice for special occasions, so of course I picked that one
- The vampy lip was only a question of deciding which color to pick in my large collection. I opted for the very classic Mac Rebel!
- For the metallic effect on the eyes, I used the beautiful Nars Etrusque single eyeshadow, that I applied wet for a more metallic effect. I then blended a  matte brown in the crease to give more depth. Etrusque is also applied in the inner corner and under the lower lashline.
- A blush that I love for dramatic looks is Rouge Bunny Rouge Florita. This is really scary in the pan but is so pretty and subtle when applied. It goes with any vampy lip.

Check out the other beautiful looks created to start the New Year in style!
