Beauty Inspiration: Futuristic and Dystopian

I have to admit that I am slightly obsessed with dystopian novels, and  love all those futuristic and manus x machina themes. And, yes, I do have a board on Pinterest.

It may have something to do with the fact that I did culture studies back at uni and read lots of philosophical theories on the subject.  Whatever it is, I have been always fascinated with the futuristic beauty.

Here is actually a photo I’ve posted on Instagram recently.

Beauty Inspiration: Dark Lips

It’s not a secret that I am a huge fan of dark but wearable lips. So after looking at the close-ups of the makeup from the MET Gala 2012, I have chosen my favourite looks.

One of my favourites is this look on Lana del Rey, how gorgeous does she look?  Flawless skin,beautiful contouring, impeccable eye makeup and the lip shade is just perfection!

Then there are also Kate Bosworth and Camilla Belle. Kate, who usually wears a ‘barely-there-makeup’ is rocking that dark lipstick. Bravo, Kate! The brows are also to die for.  Only what’s with the hair?!
