We have to admit we squealed a little when we saw one of our favorite darkling makeup babes, Drac Makens, post these sneak peeks on her Instagram. Once again, she is teaming up with @taterroundsbeauty (read more about them here) for a collection based on her favorite clown (Who could IT be?). Makens teased the most ethereal, glowiest highlight ever, and liquid lipsticks named “Sewer Dweller,” “Pointed Smile,” and “Dancing Clown.” There’s no release date yet, but you can be sure Dear Darkling will let you know when it drops.
