Do NOT Try This At Home-Not-So-Lazy-Summer
6 July, 2009
DISCLAIMER: THIS LOOK IS NOT MEANT TO BE WORN OUTSIDE THE HOUSE. I REPEAT, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
So this is the artistic look that I promised from earlier today. By artistic, I mean experimenting with a buttload of products to create a more costume-y look. I haven’t done one of these in awhile, but I should do them at least once a week to give me some inspiration.
The products used (this is a continuation of the earlier basic look):
Fuschia pigment, Teal pigment, Silver Fog pigment, Gold Stroke pigment, Gold Dusk pigment, Dancing Light Beauty Powder, 3D Silver glitter, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Helium pigment, Goldyrocks Dazzleglass
Directions: Apply a line of UDPP underneath the eye, from a little inside of the outer corner up to a little below the brow. Use a 213 or 231 to apply 3D Silver on there, while the primer is still wet. Take a 219 and apply a little line of Gold Stroke as an extended liner from the inner corner down, and then apply some above the 3D Silver as an extended outer corner shadow. Blend well. There should be a distinct line though at the very edge of the glitter. Then apply a little smidge of Gold Dusk to the outside of the Gold Stroke. Line the lower lid with Teal, and do two curlicues-one at the very end, butting up against the Gold Dusk, and the other a little to the outside of that. Finally, apply a smidge of 3D Silver in the inner corner. Dip a 109 or similar brush in Fuschia pigment, and apply it along the cheekbone. Apply Dancing Light on top of that, to soften out the Fuschia, and then apply Silver Fog with a 217 on the top and bottom edges of the blush. Buff in, so there are no harsh lines. Then apply some Silver Fog along the edges of the nose, the very tip of the nose, the Cupid’s Bow, the chin, and above the eyebrow, if you want. Finally, apply Goldyrocks on the lips, and then apply Silver Fog using a lip brush on the outer portions. Apply Fuschia on the center portions of the lip, and use Helium in between those to create a sort of graduated look.
