Gold

Inglot Scandinavia were so sweet and sent me a little package of luvvv containing products that all were 100% my taste, I’m so excited to dig through them! Thank you so much! <3 Just look at this gold pigment for example, my brain just exploded. It doesn’t even look a tenth as amazing photographed as it does in real life, it’s like a gritty gold leaf with a drop of bronze. When rubbed into the eyelid, especially over a sticky base, it turns into a solid foil. So crazy!

The other day I wore it on top of a brown eyeshadow, just smacked it on with a finger and brushed the fallout off my cheeks (because can’t deny it, there’s quite a bit with this much shimmer). Who can resist this glam rock goodness?

Stone

Todays eye makeup was done with the new Inglot palette I mentioned buying in my last post. It’s so pretty! I love how pinks make my eyes seem bright blue, it really brings life to the face without really looking like a ton of weird eyeshadow.

The lip combo is also a current favourite. I did this combo in a haste last week and since then I’ve just kept doing it – it’s NYX Stone lipstick which I define super softly at the edges with a brow pencil. Finally a taupe lip that I actually can wear. Ha!

After seeing this mini tutorial by Harry Makes It Up I felt the need to smack on some coral/lime/blue on my eyes. Such a perfect colour combo! Thanks for the inspo gurl. I went full on colour block, no fuss, not even very blended. To take the overall look down a notch the skin and lips are on the “hyperreal” side, softly flushed colours and faked freckles.

The bright colours I used were from the Viseart Editorial Brights palette, the coral is a mix between the pink and the orange, the lime is a mix between the lightest green and the yellow, plus the already blue mascara got a dusting of the bright blue eyeshadow on top.

I really ended up loving this shade of bright coral and would love to be able to use it without mixing, do you have any tips on eyeshadows like this? Loose or pressed doesn’t matter! Thanks :*

Paranoid

I can barely look at the Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadows, this entire line of shiny metallic shadows is named after famous rock albums and singers, and then colour coordinated to the album covers. Kat obviously has some great taste and it just GETS ME, I just.. need them all?

How about this one blue I’m wearing today one called Paranoid (after the Black Sabbath album which is on my top 5 albums ever), royal purple Danzig (after horror rock & punk icon Glenn Danzig), silvery Static Age (after my personal favourite Misfits album), deep wine Raw Power (after The Stooges super influential balls to the walls album) and so on. Sorry for the nerd attack but omg yes. Anyone else feeling the same?

SO, HOWEVER, UHM. Paranoid! This shade is a super bright turquoise tinged blue. Not turquoise enough to look tropical, but a tad too happy for me to feel 100% comfortable. So I layered it over a wash of KIKO Water Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue (215) which is noticeable deeper, dirtier and cooler in tone, they really help each other pop. Then to contrast even more I lined the eyes with a deep lavender pencil. Matching different tones of the same colour (= monochromatic) is so damn effective.
