I had a blast with makeup today! I played with a ton of colors to create this look and I think it’s awesome. Be warned, this is a picture heavy post. I love doing color like this!
First I started out with Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Then I took an Urban Decay Crease brush and applied Fyrinnae Princess of Darkness widely in the crease and up onto my lower browbone. I used a small ecotools smudge brush with a bit of Sugarpill Dollipop to blend out the upper edge of Princess of Darkness. I used a fluffy ecotools highlighter brush to apply MAC Vellum to the browbone. I then added a bit of MAC Stars & Rockets to the upper crease on top of Dollipop. Then I blended the crease and browbone together. Next I applied Urban Decay Frigid to the outer crease with a fiber optic pointed crease brush. With the Urban Decay crease brush I applied Sugarpill Love + to the inner crease. I then blended again. I applied Fyrinnae Wake Not the Dead to the lid, patting it on. I dabbed a bit of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to the center of each lid. After it was ready, I applied more Wake Not the Dead. This color is AMAZING when you wear it.
I used MAC fluidline in Blacktrack to line the upper lash line. For the lower water line and lower lash line I used L’oreal Extreme Carbon Black liquid pencil from the Project Runway collection. I applied Raven’s Prophecy on top of Extreme Carbon Black along the lower lash line, extended out, with a dense, wide smudge brush. With a Medusa’s Makeup smudge brush I applied Vellum to the inner v and inner corners of the eye.
For my lips I started by lining them with Nyx lip pencil in Purple Rain. I took Urban Decay Jilted and applied it with a lip brush over my lips, very thinly. Then I took Morgana Cryptoria Nightshade and darkened the outer 1/3 of my lips, using a lip brush. For the middle 1/3 of my lips I used MAC Show Orchid, also applied and blended with a lip brush. For the center 1/3 of my lips I used MAC Candy Yum Yum, applied and blended with a lip brush. I added a tiny bit of MAC Pervette to the very center of the upper and lower lip but I don’t think you can easily see it in the pictures. I’ve not done this type of lip very often, but I think it looks cool!
