Classic plaids, tweeds, and houndstooth feel brand new mixed with denim and vegan leather and accessorized with regency glamour-inspired pearls and lace, sumptuous updos, and bold romantic makeup.

Here, lead makeup artist for Deck of Scarlet, Jessi Butterfield, shares how to get the look:

After prepping the skin, I went straight for eyes. The look is a really tough rock ‘n roll smoky eye, so I love to get right into it. First, I used the Deck of Scarlet Kajal Eye Pencil in Black Magic. Completely line the upper and lower eye—don’t be shy. It doesn’t have to be perfect because we’re going to smoke it right after. After you feel good about the rims, use a tight pencil-like brush to buff the product up and out. Continue building your shape until you encompass the entire eyelid. Follow up with a fluffy eyeshadow brush this time to create a soft focus finish.

Next up is eyeshadow. This look is really bold and black. To get it all the way there I pressed the Deck of Scarlet Eyeshadow in Last Call into the Kajal with a tightly packed flat eyeshadow brush. Then, I blended up and out with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. I also used the Deck of Scarlet Metal Leaf Shadow Pot.

To make sure there wasn’t any gap at all between the lashes and the eyelid, I used the Deck of Scarlet liquid eyelinerin between the lashes for a bold impact. Finally, I added several coats of the Deck of Scarlet Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

After the eyes, I kept the skin fresh and glowing by applying the Deck of Scarlet Skin Gloss in Nymph. I love to apply this with clean fingers on the high points of the face for an ethereal glow. I also applied the Deck of Scarlet [Mis]take Proof Blush to the cheeks with the Deck of Scarlet Double Take Face Brush.
