Beauty Insight Au-Currant by Celine Bernaerts

To me there’s nothing more attractive on a woman than a strong brow with a bold lip. Dominating this fall is a make-up look called au-currant, which takes a bold lip to a whole other level. So far indeed that you’ll look like a beautiful damned vampire that stepped right out of the endless amount of fantasy series that are being aired this season. However, this look isn’t for everyone. You’ll have to reach deep into your soul for some courage, for this look will turn heads wherever you go.

Simply said, the au-currant trend uses deep cranberry- and purple tints that can go all the way to black on the lips. To counteract this dramatic feature, the eyes are kept simple and clean with hardly any eyeshadow. However if an eyeshadow is used, it’s kept in the same colour family with dark oranges or reds. The skin is kept light and matte with a hint of shimmer on the cheekbones. To finish the look, try some darker pieces from the Calor Jewelry Fall Winter 2013 Collection like the Hazel earrings, the Reine earrings or the Ghislaine earrings.
