One of our hands-down favorite beauty moments from 2012 was Kate Bosworth's enchanting, yet vampy makeup look at the Met Gala. By taking the '90s dark goth lip and adding a high-sheen gloss, the effect felt quite sophisticated in a 1940s way.
We've become even better friends with dark lip color this winter — the deep-tinged look just feels so becoming in the colder months. Check out the video above for a play-by-play guide to recreating Bosworth's look.
Since lips are the major focus here, you'll want to keep everything else fairly simple. Start by priming the eye, then apply a pink-y beige color all over the eyelid. For a little glow, sweep a sheer gold shadow on top. Next, line the eye with a soft charcoal liner -- this will add a little definition, but will feel softer than liquid liner. A few swipes of mascara to the outer lashes will make them look healthy and defined, as opposed to clumpy.
For the big lip look, start by lining lips with a nude liner, then fill the lips in with a deep crimson color. Dab on a sheer chocolate brown gloss, which will create a rich, shiny effect. Finish the look by filling in brows.
