Dark & dramatic beauty: top 5 products

There’s something about dark, dramatic and vampy makeup that exudes confidence, sensuality and strength. When we channel a dark and bold burgundy lip, deep set eyes or a sculpted contour, we can instantly look resilient and commanding, whilst being incredibly womanly and enticing at the same time. A dark and intense image can be so powerful and breathtaking on us women. I feel a similar way about the smell of strong, intense perfume scents. I much prefer a masculine and passionate smell to a more fruity and ‘girlish’ fragrance. It’s the beauty of being able to wear strong bold make-up and complement it with a dramatic scent, whilst oozing womanliness, that’s truly captivating. It’s a look that can be channeled from work to party. And so I’ve recommended some great investment beauty products to help obtain this day-to-night look. It’s time to channel our inner vixen!
