Area 51

Area 51 from the the Alien Abduction collection by Meow Cosmetics is fantastic. Just as fantastic as my friend Sofia who gave it to me after I had spotted it in her (massive, nearly erotic) makeup stash and ooh-ed and aah-ed. <3 Thank you sweetheart, I will give it a good home!

It is the perfect sparkly blackened forest green with a drop of teal, which you by now probably understand is my favourite shade for colourful smokey eyes. It’s all I’m wearing on my lids in this look, I just applied a shimmery teal pencil on my waterline and highlighted the inner corner with Mary-Lou then packed on some mascara. So simple!

Fireball

I have written about Fireball highlighter from Urban Decay before as you might remember, it’s an apricot base (which makes it work as a blush on fair skin) with bright pinky blue glow. It really is as odd as it is fantastic. Fireball is also available as an eyeshadow, you know more intense and probably a bit creamier, but hello, with the new Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner release coming to Sweden soon (I think it’s out in the US already?) we get our favourite duochrome shade in pure liquid metal form!! I am so excited I could puke. Blog post with more photos of it will be up soon! Blog post about the eyeliner is up, link to the review here!

This makeup started out as a basic soft brown smokey eye where I half way through started craving the new Fireball liner, so to lay down a matching peachy base I packed Fireball highlighter on the eyelids. With mascara, liner and everything in place I felt that something was missing, so I went in with neon coral Slowburn from the Urban Decay Electric Palette to top off the brown lower lash line. And as you can see – this is the product combo dreams are made of. Duochrome coral dream!

Electric (I just want to dance)

Played around with the Urban Decay Electric Palette the other day, here’s the result. I’m wearing all shades except for light blue Gonzo, silly enough! Read my blog post about the palette here.

I’ve also started experimenting with the Naked Skin Foundation again, I got it a few months ago and didn’t really get that excited over the finish, but recently I’ve started feeling like wearing more mattes (well it has the velvety look of a matte but it doesn’t look flat or dry, it’s probably wrong calling it matte though) and as I still want something that looks like skin, this one is a great choice. Does need solid moisture prep if you have combo/dry skin though.

Amethyst

I felt it was time for a winged cartoon eye, overly highlighted skin and purple lips, so that’s what I’ve worn today. Quite simple, quite crazy. Love this lip!

Rosewood

Here’s another lippie from the IsaDora Bohemian Flair collection! Not as fab as the blackened plum in my last post, but I guess this will be a popular one.
