Taylor Momsen is what many may refer to as a beauty rebel. While she is just 17-years-old, the Gossip Girl actress and budding musician usually steps out wearing more eye makeup than most women will wear in a lifetime.
And while she is most often seen with heavy black liner and shadow, Taylor was recently photographed wearing a new hue on her lids – maroon.
Though red eye makeup is often thought of as a fashion faux-pas, this hue is a welcome change from Taylor's usual dark raccoon-like application. Seeing a bit of color on the young girl's face brighten's up her typically Goth-chic appearance.
However, the blonde starlet went a bit overboard by wearing a dark lipstick as well. Her purple pout competed with her intense eye makeup, and made her look more vampire than vamp.
Ladies who want a softer smoky eye can follow Taylor's lead and don warm-toned shadow instead of blacks and charcoals. But remember to pair the look with a sheer lip gloss to keep from looking like a Gothic princess.
