Here’s a cool toned look I tried on today to test some products I’ll be reviewing shortly! The look features one of my favorite combinations – purple and pink! I’ve done a soft shimmery eye in white and lilac and paired it with pink blush and a berry pink lip! Read on for full makeup breakdown..
Eye makeup :
I did this look primarily to try out Illamasqua eye shadows in Sex (matte pure white) and Cancan(matte lilac) from the Human Fundamentalism Collection. Both these are shades are not the easiest to carry on my skin tone by themselves. While they can be great for creative artistic looks I was determined to create a look that was wearable! Basically I did 2 things to make the shades work – used a medium violet pigment (wet, as base) and after applying the Illamasqua shadows, I patted on some transparent shimmer with pink/purple reflects from Faces on top. Overall, I quite like how the look turned out. What do you think?
I’m wearing Geo Tri-color Violet contact lenses from Dbeautyshop.com.
