FOTD: Lambda Luv

Whipped out some new goodies from BornPrettyStore today to slather on a nuclear Half Life look!
As orange is the main “good” accent color throughout the game I went for a bright pop of that, and kept the rest clean. Accompanied by a little lambda to represent the rate of radioactive decay. And the resistance. And dog!

Accessories to match of course.
So the first gadget I used is this synthetic angled brush. Now what brand does that design remind you of… ^_~

Anywho it’s lovely for getting right under those cheekbones, cleans really easily as well.
Secondly! For that orange hue over the eyes, I used this double-ended eye brush.

Nifty thing for mapping out the outer corner, then flick it in to disperse the shade.

And then this sponge smudger you can obviously use to smoke out your liner or your lower lashline..
Buuut since sponges have the tendency to pack on color well too I used it to brighten up the inner corners with a powder foundation, worked like a charm.
Then to finish off the look I asked for some of their natural whispy lashes:

The case was sort of bashed up when it arrived though sadly enough.. but the lashes were oh-so-fine.

Synthetic and fluttery.

Love the way they flare out!

  1. Wat een prachtige wing, en wat een mooie ogen heb je!

  2. What a perfect name for a line of products.
    Love those first 2 brushes ( you always have the best helps and hints – thanks)
    Always always liked coral/orangy lipstick, but never thought of it on eyes – it works!

    Ohh, super gaaf gedaan zeg :D

  4. hello, i was wondering is all of bornprettystore cosmetics are cruelty free? Im not sure about aliexpress, but id love to buy cheaper makeup. Thanks!

    • I’m doubtful about their raw ingredients. If you’re looking to buy 100% cruelty free I wouldn’t go for their make-up products. :/ I’ve been sticking to synthetic brushes and lashes so far.
      But did mail them to ask about the raw ingredients as well and i’ll post a reply once I know more.
      I know what a hassle it can be , finding budget cosmetics.. sorry to dissapoint. But, you can try TKB trading for some lovely (incredibly beautiful) cheap, cruelty free pigments. I want to try their duochromes SO bad!

      This one for example:

      Seems divine..

  5. Yay, she’s back! Missed you <3 je look is weer superfantastischawesome, en ik vind het zo tof dat je altijd zulke felle kleurtjes gebruikt! Ik wil al een poosje een look maken geïnspireerd op Defiance, die serie ken je vast wel (en anders: kijken!) Lijkt me zo tof!

    • Oh bleep, yeah I know it, jij speelde de game daar ook van toch? There’s some seriously nice make-up in there, en challenging stuff ook! Als je je daar ooit aan waagt, massive respect hoor! Sheesh ;D cool!

  6. Wauw, wat kan jij mooie wings maken! Ook origineel dat je een game als referentie gebruikt! Nice nice!!

    Ps. Er is momenteel een winactie op mijn site. Super tof mocht je ook meedoen!

  7. Waauw mooie look en mooie foto’s meis! En je nagels gorgeous!

  8. Your wing is amazing, really sharp and the lashes are so fine! Never heard of the game, but it looks violent (like a Terminator movie sorta style).

  9. Wow, dit is een perfecte wing en wat een prachtige kleur oogschaduw heb je erbij gebruikt! Dan wil jij wat zeggen over mijn Galaxy nailart, maar jij kan er ook wat van. Dit doe ik jou echt niet na, excellent job!!!

  10. Gorgeous! I’m not usually a fan of orange near the eyes, but you make it look so darn good!

  11. I love this look on you! Great nails by the way… you always look stunning!

    • Thanks Lori! I just cut them short, they were just too long for me. Having them come to a point wasn’t safe at all, they were better already, but still: not handy when being a total clutz!

  12. Wow, really makes your eyes pop!! Not sure I’m brave enough for something that bright!

    Just quickly while I’m here, I’m going to a comic convention in October and I’m going as a female version of Gambit from the X Men (in case you don’t know him here is a reference image – ) I was just wondering if you had any ideas for make up? I need it to look good in photographs and stay all day. I think because pink is the colour of his mutant power I need to incorporate that a lot but I really don’t know where to start!! Any ideas or tips?!

    Thanks so much and great to see you again ^_^

    • Oehh neat! So many options! Ummm…. do you want a full-face or a personal interpretation with the eyes of some sort?

      • I’m going to do a face painted mask type thing but I want to come up with something for the eyes. He has red eyes but mine are too sensitive for contacts so I want to create something out eyeshadow :)

      • Sounds like a plaaan :D hmm.. you could do something with the wing maybe?
        Here’s one idea:
        The lid in any shade you like, vibrant pink or brown for his jacket, or even white for the cards.. and then a jet black double wing, coloring the area in between pink as well and fading that out?
        Then card symbols or even actual cards on top of that pink, like they’re popping out of the wing?

      • I’ll give that a go. It’s definitely going to be an elaborate look ^_^


  13. your eyes are G.R.E.A.T. !
