Fall Fashion 2011: Steam Punk Chic

I am starting a new series of posts that will focus on fall fashions for 2011, including outfits, makeup, and nails.  I have dubbed this entry Steam Punk Chic.  If you don't know what steam punk is I highly recommend you google it!  It's really fun.  To make the idea of steam punk wearable I chose Camel leathers, Deep burgundy shades, and gold accents.  to pull it all together I did a very deep smokey red eye and red shimmer nails.  Crimson on the face has been seen a lot for fall 2011, so take the plunge and just go for it!

  Steam Punk Chic

I used a NYX Jumbo Pencil in French Fries and the Coastal Scents 88 Metal Mania Palette to achieve this look.

Left to Right: Color Club's Slow Jam, Sinful Colors' Mercury Rising, Sinful Colors' Wild at Heart, OPI's Midnight in Moscow, Sally Hansen's Real Royal.

So what do you think of Steam Punk Chic, and the crimson trend?  Will you be trying it out this fall or winter?
