I thought I’d drop in with a quick post to show you this fun and funky look I did. I’ve been making it a point to get out of my comfort zone, and this time, I rather like the result. As has been the case with me lately, I used mostly indie brands for this look. On to the deets!
Starting with my eyes, I used my StudioMakeup On-The-Go Cool Down palette for my base and transition shades, as well as the outer corners. I was intent on being sparkly, and used a few AmmoCosmetix shadows that really made things come together. I used Love Fire, a glittery rose with pink-to-blue shifting microglitter on my inner lid. I used Surge, which appears to be a violet base with turquoise-to-blue shifting glitter, on my outer lid. On the inner corners, I added Obscene, a light pink base containing pink-to-green shifting glitter. I just foiled the shadows, being timid. The next time I try a similar look, I’ll be bolder and use a sticky base.
I added my usual winged liner, using Juvia’s Place The Saharan gel eyeliner in black. If you like gel liners, as I do, I’d highly recommend this set, which includes one black and one brown liner and a brush. The formula is divine; it isn’t too thick, and it glides on smoothly, without skipping. I then lined above the crease with BH Cosmetics glitter liner in Riot.
On my cheeks, I used Notoriously Morbid products. My blush is called Skin, and the highlighter, I Burn, I Pine, I Perish, was part of February’s Vanishing Cabinet. Because I wasn’t glittery enough, I chose Pink Diamond, a lip jewel by Who is She Cosmetics. This lip jewel was a bit of a challenge to apply evenly, but once on, the wear was surprisingly comfortable, and it stayed on until I took it off.
So, there you have it! I was so chuffed about how this look turned out. I’d love to do it again, this time with even brighter colors and more glitter. You know, because I’m extra.
Have you tried any of these colors? Is this a style you’d wear, or is it too over-the-top for your taste?
Thanks for reading!
