Darker lips are meant for this season, here's how I pull it off, only wearing a little on the eyes and focusing on the lips and brows.

OHH MA GOD, I love makeup looks like these! This makeup is so sleek and simple, yet really in at the moment. This can both be worn dressed down with a soft sweater and your hair down or dressed up with a sleek pulled back ponytail and some black heeled boots!

The base pretty much always stays the same for my looks, so I'm going to mention it quickly. For primer I used Max Factor All Day Primer and foundation was L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte, then for concealer I used Maybelline Age Rewind and finished off with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Sleek Contour Kit, The Balm Betty-Lou Manizer and MAC Blush in Launch Away.
For the simple look eye, I just applied the NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Happy Hour all over the lids and into the crease and applying the highlighter in the Sleek Contour Kit. For mascara I used the Maybelline Sensational mascara, only applying it on the ends of my eyelashes, very lightly. For brows I used the Catrice Eyebrow pencil in Date with Ash-Ton.
Lastly for lips I used this beautiful darker red color in Down Town by H&M (definitely brings out my red birthmark), I added a dab of loose translucent powder on top off the lipstick, for a mattified look.

For a more evening appropriate, done up look, you can add tons of mascara or fake eyelashes, to add even more drama to the eyes.
