So, here comes the next look in the Zodiac series, Scorpio. To me Scorpio is a dark and mysterious sign and the color I associate with it is dark red. I figured that the makeup look that best would describe this Zodiac sign is a grey smokey eye with sharp, red eyeliner. :)

As eyeliner I have used the rusty, blood-red gel liner Poison by Makeup Geek. I like it a lot, even though it clogs my brush just as Fame did. Another drawback with it is that it doesn't show up as good if you use it on a darker background. I tried doing this look with a darker shade of grey but the red just "disappeared".

For the lips, a burgundy red suits the Scorpio ladies. :) To emphasize it I applied black in the corners of my lips.

  1. This looks awsome! I think i will do something like this next weekend *_*
    I hope red liner goes well with jade-green eyes :/

    1. Thank you Sarah! I'm glad to have inspired you. :) Yes, I think it will look lovely with your eye color. :)

  2. So beautiful! I love how you did the lips :-) Something is so different about your pictures here, I almost didn't recognize you! Is it the hair?? (maybe I'm just crazy)
    Either way- exquisitely beautiful :-)

    1. Thanks a lot! It is the eyes that are different! ;)

  3. That is an awesome colour of red eyeliner! Great look!

  4. Thanks a lot! I'm a Scorp and I find this look strongly alluring, so I guess there is something to this whole Zodiac sign thing. Also, dark red eyliner kicks ass.
