1. Silver/Gold and black eye makeup

2. Bright red lips

As long as you put the red lipstick on, you don’t really need much. Amazing red lips can transform the most basic LBD (Little Black Dress) into something dramatic. It will not only push your X-factor up but also draws immediate attention to your beautiful face. That’s all you need. Learn it from Dita Von Teese!
