"Dark and Twisty"

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I currently reside in Virginia, so the weather changes as often as one changes underwear. That being said, I tend to wear darker shades of eyeshadow and nail polish when the temperature drops. I chose to do a smokey eye in the purple family because the "V" eyeshadow is my favorite color in the True Blood for Tarte palette. I didn't want to take attention away from my eyes, so I decided to go with a nude colored lip by M.A.C. I just so happened to purchase a burgundy polish a month ago on The polish is infused with gold and purple glitter and it really added a great finishing touch to this look.
