Just want to do a little follow up to the Dark Lids look that I posted a couple of days back, click here to read more if you are interested.
I used all different products (different black products, different lashes and blusher) for the same look, and to very nice effect too -- I think.
I wanted to test the 'wearability' of this look, and learned a few pointers in the process:
- Do the eyes first, because there is going to be fallout, and you don't want to spend time cleaning up the undereye area and smear your foundation.
- Keep the rest of the face clean and as flawless as possible. Hence I spent time painstakingly concealing all the little spots on my face.
- Keep the brows groomed but light, so that the focus is on the dark lids and clean face.
Nonetheless, I was determined to rock this look and here are the results. And hey, I added a faux mole above my mouth, cos that's what Nic (pixiwoo) did in the tutorial.
Eyes: MAC painterly paintpot(base), MAC Your Ladyship pigment & Inuovi Platinum e/s (highlight)
The Black Part: Stila Golden Noir smudgepot, Ed Pinau (that freebie eyeshadow) on top. Perfect match for each other because of the whole black and gold glitter going on.
Lashes: Sasa lashes (forgot the brand), and YSL Faux Cils mascara
Face: Dior Extreme Fit, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer
Cheeks: NARS Laguna, and MAC Azalea (which is AMAZING for this look!!)
Lips: YSL RV Lingerie Pink (7)
And I did say tried and tested, so here are a few pictures of the night:
FYI Sister is using Style Demon on her cheeks :)
Sidenote: I think the whole dark lids/ pink lips combination is the Louis Vuitton runaway looks for the past couple of seasons.
That's all (so much for a little follow up), and thanks for reading!!
