FOTD: Gas masks and Gloss
My oh my.
A friend got me running to my make-up stash, digging for that black lipstick aaaall the way in the back.
Some Juna Helminen photography he linked got me all hyped up. Seemed like the perfect time to try out a black glossy lip!
Ahhh it felt good being inspired..
I literally felt daily routines “om nomming” my brain. You know?
The rest of the face looked like it was asking for a strict wing, a pop of sharp red and skin as shiny as a freshly polished gas mask.
To be honest i’m feeling the black lip, would be fun to go have a drink or something!
Would you wear it?
What’s that on your face?
1 – 2 ) Primed and evened out the lid
Essence I Love Stage primer held everything in place!
And Honeybee Gardens’ Geisha powder evened out the lid for an even canvas (this face powder is so pigmented it works as an eyeshadow, holy hamsters!).
3) Winged liner!
What else would I have used, huh! :D
Used some Catrice Gel Liner as well, to fill in the upper waterline.
4) Pop of red
Inglot’s matte 382 just because it’s awesome!
5) Mascara, lashes and liner touch-up
The mascara I used is Physician’s Formula Organic wear, just a teenie bit.
Don’t get this lash glue! It’s horrific. :(
Absolutely won’t hold onto big lashes..
However these MUD lashes though are super comfortable and oh – so flared & flirty..
6) White waterline
Pretty much had this pencil for ages as you can see! ;)
It’s called “White”.. Gosh how surprising! Hee hee.
First of all I went for some cream concealer everywhere needed..
Then I mixed in some Manic Panic Dreamtone with my Catrice Infinite Matte foundation to lighten it up.
Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips in Natural Glow went on the tip of my nose, cheekbones, cupid’s bow and around the edges of my face.
Then some more of that shimma shimma mixed with Essence 44 It’s Up To You on the cheeks.
Lined them with Gosh’s Velvet Touch black eye pencil.
Then Manic Panic’s Raven to follow it up and some gloss on top!
Just a clear one.. mine’s from 2B.
I hope you liiike, sure had fun creating it over here.
