Playing with Color Placement

7 Sep

Hey there friends. Not really sure if I like this one, but I’ll post it anyways, see what everyone thinks.color placement 2

I’m always impressed when makeup artists are able to pick seemingly random color placements on their eyes and it turns out f*cking fantabulous every single time. So I turned off my brain, grabbed my UD Electric Palette and some Colourpop and MUFE shadows, and got to it.

The eyeliner is definitely my favorite part of this look. I’m planning to replicate it in a simpler, more neutral look so it can really shine, as I do feel it gets a little overpowered by all the colors.

Products used were most of the Urban Decay Electric Palette, a few Make Up For Ever shadows, a tiny bit of Sugarpill, Colourpop SuperShock shadows in Dare, Slave2Pink, Animal, and Ibiza; and the Physicians Formula Eye Booster.

Neutral Cut Crease

6 Sep

Hey there friends. In all my years as a makeup enthusiast (read: two, maybe three years) I don’t think I’ve ever done a proper neutral cut crease. Let’s remedy that, shall we?DSC08948

I got a bit creative with the pictures in this one, so consider yourself warned.

Man, I feel like Urban Decay’s Freelove (my lid shade) is such an underrated eyeshadow. It’s a beautiful subtle deep-orange-to-gold duochrome with a lovely shine. I heart this so hard.

Also I swear to god that crease took me AN HOUR to blend. I suffered for my craft today.

Main products used were the Saucebox Batalash palette, UD Freelove, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer.

Hey there friends.

I did this look for an Instagram makeup challenge hosted by Jessica @wallflower_artistry; her theme for June 16 was Orange Crush. I’m not sure I really dig it, but it was definitely outside the box for me and I thought I’d share.
