I recently came across this beautiful hair piece from asos that I had lost amongst my many hair accessories for quite some time. When I found it I felt really inspired to do a dramatic gypsy goddess look. Although it’s Spring here and bright lip colors are what’s “in”, I still like to rock a good dark lip every now and then!
Prep + Prime: Start by moisturizing the skin with a light but hydrating oil. I used Sibu Beauty SeabuckthornSeed Oil and added a light layer of Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Cream (review here) on top.
Correct + Conceal: To combat my stubborn dark circles I applied Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation in “Like Porcelain” (review here) to the under eyes and on the eyelids to act as an eyeshadow primer. I also used the Kjaer Weis foundation as a concealer around any other areas that needed covering (ie: nose, chin). I blended everything out with a beauty blender.
Bronze + Illuminate: Who doesn’t want dewy skin? For an extra “glowy” look I dabbed RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (for those sensitive to coconut oil – I also use and love Ilia Beauty’s Polkadots & Moonbeams Illuminator) to the highest part of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid’s bow. To add some color to my cheeks I blended RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer (again if sensitive to coconut oil, try Ilia’s Sway Bronzer) and Lip2Cheek in “Smile” to the apples of my cheeks.
Eyes: I started off by applying a light layer of Red Apple Lipstick Eyeshadow in “Porcelain” all over my lid and brow-bone. I then applied Alima Pure Eyeshadow in “Orchid” all over the lid, making sure not to go into the crease. For my crease color I used Red Apple Lipstick’s Pressed Eyeshadow in the color “Vamp”. I blended all three colors together and lined just the outer part of my eye with the Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner. To bring out the purple from the Alima Pure eyeshadow I applied two coats of Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara in “Aubergine” and added false lashes using EcoTools non-toxic glue.
Lips: I prepped my lips with Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lipbalm and added two layers of Ilia Beauty “Ink Pot” Lipstick. I used the actual lipstick to line my lips before coloring in.
What do you think of this look? Would you wear a dark lip color in Spring? Would you rock a hair piece like this!? Share your thoughts in the comments! xx

Gorgeous! I love that headpiece and the dark lips go really great with it.
I think the dark lips look beautiful on you, I am a little less brave but I am still deeply attached to Ilia’s Arabian nights and refuse to stop wearing it Xx
Absolutely gorgeous! x
You are beautiful inside and out! You totally rock that headpiece. I love Ink Pot and I’d definitely wear darker tones in the Spring /Summer as well 🙂 Also, thank you for mentioning coconut oil free alternatives, I love RMS but coconut oil can be too rich for my skin especially in warmer seasons. xo
This is such a beautiful look! The lip colour is so striking, absolutely love it all 🙂 x
I’ve been thinking about getting Ink Pot, but it looks quite pinkish in your pictures. I thought it was a darker purple shade. Hmm. Decisions, decisions…You look beautiful regardless though! x
