Beauty Is Boring

Beauty Is Boring is responsible for creating many striking make-up looks, showcasing them on a range of different faces so we can all relate. This latest look is one we’ve taken very seriously, in terms of gorgeous party make-up. It’s simply a case of blending up a smokey, shimmery deep eye and pairing it with a sweet cherry red lip. Combine with a fresh dewy foundation and lashings of mascara.
