My Favorite Alternative to Black Eyeliner | Burgundy Eyeliner – The New Neutral

Fall is all about shades of deep wine and burgundy. I already have the Rebecca Minkoff handbag in the shade Port picked out that I know is going to be my favorite fall accessory. This week the Makeup Wars team is looking at more unique eye product colours. Burgundy shades may be best suited to accentuating green eyes, but I also happen to find plum and burgundy shades incredibly flattering on blue eyes. When I want something a little different than the traditional black and brown eyeliner I love using a deep dark burgundy. It is

Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Look Review Including the New Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl

Oh my goodness I am in TROUBLE. I have developed an all consuming obsession with Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics. I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury for years.
