I wore this makeup for my Dad's Las Vegas themed party quite a few weeks back now. (By the way I was wearing a strapless dress but you can't see it in the pictures, in case any of you thought I was au naturel!) 

I am not very brave when it comes to makeup and this is me being brave! However I did feel surprisingly confident considering I haven't really worn smokey eyes and a red lip together before (I know, what sort of beauty blogger am I!). I hadn't even planned it; it just happened and it worked for me. But both the eyes and lips are a more subtle version of what could be a lot more dramatic and the products I used are a great way to ease into this type of look. The Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon is a pinky red, so is a great choice if a true red is a scary concept!

What are your favourite products for smokey eyes and red lips?

  1. I'm not nearly brave enough to do smokey eyes yet but I have gradually brought myself to dark lipsticks. My lips are really thin so I have to be careful that they suit me first.

    1. My lips are quite thin actually, so I don't think I'd go too dark either! xx

  2. I think it's a really pretty look, I'm not that adventurous either but I could definitely see myself copying this!

    P.S We all know this was a nekkid photo ;) <3

    1. Thanks Tara! Haha you did make me chuckle :-) xx

  3. Looks lovely Sasha - pretty colours and work well together! I used to be adventurous in my younger days but have to play it down (a little!) now in my old age! xx

  4. This look is so pretty! I always go for a very similar style because I don't think many can pull off a full smokey eye and red lips look successfully so it's nice to tone it down a little like this :) x

    1. Thanks Evelyn! I'm not sure if I would go for super dark smokey eyes because I'm so pale, but maybe a little darker would be ok. I'm too scared of making myself look like a drag queen haha xx
