Espresso Smokey Eyes & Red Lips

I was feeling really festive today and wanted to do a special makeup look so I decided to go for a dark brown smokey eye and red lips. I didn't really feel like having fire engine red lips (NARS Heatwave) so decided to mix it with a shimmery plum lipstick to mute the red but keep it looking rather christmassy. I really like the colour that resulted from mixing the two lipsticks and I really want to start mixing more lipsticks together.
