I should really do face of the day posts more often seeing as all I do is play with makeup! Today I was messing around with my Illamasqua goodies as shown in my last post and thought I'd get a little blue smokey eye going on. This is a nice alternative to a traditional smokey eye if you want to try something a little special.
Just a little note - I still haven't quite mastered the art of taking self portraits and I don't know why I chose to use this foundation knowing full well it's too light for me, I look like a ghost!
Face: Illamasqua cream foundation in CF115 // Kryolan Dermacolour Camouflage concealer palette // Estee Lauder bronzer in Cinnamon // GOSH blush in Flower Power // Topshop highlighter in Sunbeam // Illamasqua eyebrow cake // Mac lipstic in Forecast Nude
Eyes: Illamasqua liquid metal eyeshadow in Resolute // Annabelle eyeshadows in blue, white and beige // Mac eyeshadow in Carbon // Mac pigment in Platinum // Illamasqua mascara in Lewd // Mac fluidline eyeliner in Blacktrack
After doing this makeup I decided that blue doesn't really suit me, maybe because I have blue eyes? I don't know. I'm going to keep trying out different looks in my FOTD posts, which will hopefully become more regular now. So if you have any suggestions/requests please do leave them in the comments.
I kept the rest of my face very natural including the lips, I never like to have both a strong eye and a strong lip unless doing a really avant garde makeup. Also, although I chose to do really strong eye makeup in this look I still wanted it to be wearable which I think it is, maybe only on a glitzy night out though!
