Dupe this Look: Kourtney Kardashian

I know there has been a lot of hoopla around that other, more famous Kardashian but I thought I'd stick to Kourtney as an inspiration after a friend of mine, Roxanne, had asked me to do a smokey eye with a red lip. Kourtney's super smokey eye paired with a deep red lip is very dramatic. Roxanne will be attending a wedding in a royal blue dress and I thought the red lip would be a nice and sophisticated pair for the dress. I started her smokey eye with my NYX Jumbo pencil in Black Bean for a base and patted on MAC's Satin Taupe onto the lid. For the crease color I used MAC's Smut and Carbon for the outer V. I lined Roxanne's entire eye with MAC's Blacktrack fluidline and since she opted to skip the falsies for tonight, I finished with a coat of L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black. To contour her cheeks, I swept MAC's Raizin onto the upper cheekbones and added MAC's highlighter Light Flush to her temples, across her forehead and down the bridge of her nose. I finished her look with MAC's Heartless lipstick and Wicked Ways lipglass. Pictured below is Roxanne's FOTD. I apologize in advance for the terrible lighting in these pics. What's your favorite way to rock the red lip and smokey eye? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Roxanne look so beautiful :) I really love the smokey eye and red lip combo. What I think would look even sexier is very dark red lips! I wonder if that'll be too intense :p

    I have to admit that Kourtney is pretty gorgeous herself, even if the whole K clan is getting to be overexposed everywhere :P

  2. Wow, Alexis, I'm so impressed with this look because i think smoky eyes and red lipstick can sometimes look harsh, but this is really glamorous. Your friend looks great, and yea I'm over the hoopla with Kim too :)
    Your comment on Twilight made me laugh, I've never read them but I'm going to trust your judgement. Can't believe they're so popular if the writing is bad. That's lame.

    Have a great weeekend,
    xoDale

  10. That is a very bright red on kourtney, wow!
    I haven't found the right shade of red that I'm comfortable with, so I usually stay away.
    But I do love me some smokey eye! I like to experiment with different colors as well, green or brown.

    Ps. Now following :)
