My Go-To Look

20160228_210912

My go-to look for a night out is a deep red lip and a red and/or black smokey eye. this is partly because red brings out the green in my eyes, partly because I think bold make up suits me and partly goth reasons.
You’ll find as you read the product list that everything in this looks is from one of two brands: Illamasqua and Kat Von D. I’m a long term fan of Illamasqua, both their products and their brand. Also, in all my customer experiences with them they have always been very friendly and helpful, including emailing me a list of their vegan products when I needed it.
The Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye contour palette I bought for it’s matte shades. As much as I love shimmer and glitter they’re not always the way forward, and this product put an end to my long search for a neutral, matte palette.

The most important thing about any smokey eye look is blending, with a clean, soft brush. I used one to blend the red and black together and then a different one to blend the black in to the base shadow and under the eye.
I also think it’s really important to go eyes then foundation with a look like this. There’s nothing worse than beautifully applying foundation and then ruining it with dropped black eyeshadow!

My Halloween Make Up

I was aiming for Maleficent, but I have to admit it ended up more vampire. Unfortunately working at my bar job for Halloween means that I couldn’t go as gory as I would have liked but I’m happy with the finished look. I didn’t think the lip scar all the way through, it didn’t stand up to eating, drinking or talking very well.

Base:
Illamasqua Skin Base 01, and the contour colour was this foundation with black eye shadow mixed in to make a grey foundation.
Illamasqua Translucent Powder

Eyes:
Saffron Cream Eyeliner
Kat Von D Eyeshadow in Shax (Shade and Light eye pallet) also for brows
Grimas eyeshadow 541
Benefit Bad Gal mascara

Lips:
Saffron Cream Eyeliner as a lip liner
OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia
More Skin Base foundation with an angled brush, to sharpen lip line

Scars:
