...pretty and sophisticated make up inspirations, perfect for the upcoming holiday season. I would love to celebrate with smokey eyes or ruby red lips. Which one is your favorite look?

Dearest Evi, I have always preferred accentuating my own eyes, while keeping my lips glossy but without lipstick.
Even though I think a more natural look can be so beautiful (such as the first gorgeous image here), there is something about those smokey eyes.;)
Have a lovely day my dear friend,
xoxo

Such a very hard choice..but I say: smoky eyes for ever!! I adore the misterious and magic touch they give! Love.

I so love both looks, I really can't choose. It's fun to switch back and forth!! Whether you are dressed in red lips or smoky eyes, darling, hope your holidays will be fab! Thanks for dropping by the blog and, of course, YOU would be listed in my favorites! Violet left you a tiny note for when you're by next time. xoxo

Have to go with the first look...I love red lipstick but haven't been able to pull it off!!!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I love every single one! And I just love Doutzen. She is unbelievably gorgeous!

Hope you're having a wonderful day :) xoxo

diane said...

Because I'm older, the 1st one is the best choice for me.
The second one makes me look like Agnes Moorehead in Bewitched, and the third one makes me look like Joan Crawford. Oh well, at least one of them works for me.

Gorgeous pictures, Evi.
Thank you again and have a great weekend.

Annie said...

I have to go with #1 - she looks soooo beautiful!!

Martina said...

I LOVE red lips on dark haired women - for myself, the color needs to be a bit softer, a berry tone, more on the pink side. I also love dark eyes and nude lips. Hope you'll have a fantastic weekend - glamour & fun!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Eve,

Great post, dear friend.
I am with the first look, more natural most of the time.
But do love them all.
I wonder if your glasses have arrived? You must be looking forward to getting them.

Happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn
