My look turned out quite fierce so I decided to name it 'Something wicked this way comes'. The look is a bit Egyptian but without the golden tanned skin so I couldn't use that theme.
Something Wicked This Way Comes FOTD
Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan (two layers)
Meow Cosmetics Concealer in Inquisitive Chausie (to cover up blemishes)
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (as a finishing powder all over face)
Meow Cosmetics Lush Blush in Kiss-and-Tell
Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder in Quartz (on cheekbones, nose, upper lip and chin)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Lime Crime eyeshadow in Nymph (all over upper eyelid, up to brows)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Fairytale (between the 'wings')
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (as a liner on upper and lower lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC Dazzleglass in Goldyrocks
So I lined my upper lid so that instead of following the actual lashline until the end, I draw a wing upwards. Then I did the same with lower lashline. I filled the space between these two lines with Fairytale. I chose Fairytale because although Nymph looks like golden off-white, it has a greenish shimmer to it.
Yeah, I know it's a strong look for kids' birthday party but I've noticed that children aren't as easily intimidated by strong makeup (ok, maybe the very extreme and scary ones that are used for theatre and such). No one asked me questions, like "why have you painted your face like that?" or anything. And no one started crying :D
I wish I had put some Shadow Insurance under Fairytale but I completely forgot because I haven't done anything like this ever. So next time I have to remember that. I think this look is totally cool and depending on what kind of colour you're wearing between the lines, you can transform this from cool to dramatic. I'm thinking about trying this with very vibrant purple for a night out clubbing.
BTW, Goldyrocks is a lovely colour. The problem with Dazzleglasses is that they are extremely painful to photograph: the shimmer and sparkle just doesn't show up. Goldyrocks looks lemony golden in the tube but on lips you can only see the sparkle. I like it still :) Goldyrocks is a limited edition shade so if you're interested, I'd say you should grab it sooner rather than later.
So what do you think?
