Hey guys =)
Hope you all are doing OK and that summer is not giving you skin problems like it is to me.
Seriously, breakouts, when was it ok to occupy a persons face in a season when heavy make-up just isn't comfortable neither to wear not to see someone wearing?!
Here is a rare everyshadow mish-mash for me - pinks. But it's all ok because I used my favorite palette of all timesor at least, to what has Sleek brought out in to date: Sleek Monaco LE I-Divine palette.
I wanted a pink and gold combination and I wanted it to be vibrant and yet blended. With eyes as small as mine that is not easily achievable. It could be if I used pin needle sized brushes, but I wasn't feeling up for the time-comsuming detail work this time.
I was inspired by Swatch Freak. She has a very distinct shadow placement I been trying to mimic but I cannot seem to do it. I think it's just my eyeshape is being in the way, stupid little buggers.
She is also known for her amazing sense of color-coordination and predominant use of indie mineral make-up. You'll love her BLOG, I am sure of it.
The lid color I made myself using Alverde Rose Garden LE white eyeshadow, an Isadora lilac color with blue shift and EDM corrector in Lavander. I used it on my cheeck as well.
I went straight for that bright pink from the Monaco palette and layered it a bunch on my outer corners.
Inner corner highlight is Kayla eyeshadow by Joppa Minerals.
The lipstick was given to me by a friend and it comes from one of those Mueller Drugstore Make-up traincases.
And then I traced an U shape over my lid, starting at the end of my lashline. I used Essence Metallic Eye Pencil in 03 Iron Goddess (discontinued now, it's only a yellow based gold kohl anyway). I layered Sweetscents Arizona Moonlight eyeshadow on top and blended it out using the pink I put on my lids.
This look is two things;
a) WEARABLE. This was not my initial intention when I sat down to play with make-up, I really wanted something out there and gloriously loud. It turned out cutesy, so I can't be too mad at myself for messing up ever so slighlty.
b) BLUE EYES friendly.
I feel like I always end up liking color combinations that in my head sound wrong, yet once applied to my actually eyeballs I warm up a bit to the idea of wearing them.
Blue and pinks, in my case. What are your colors that do not excite you one bit?
Let me know
