FOTD: Colourful Winged Eyeliner

16072013

It’s summer and I’m done with sticking to my trusty neutrals. I took inspiration from my soft yellow neon top and all the colors eying me from my drawer.

Sadly, my camera didn’t pick up the colors as lively as they are in real life, but alas, this has to suffice for now! So on with the products and procedures I chose for this look!

Eyes:

Base: MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre + MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
Lid: L’Oréal Super Liner Ultra Precision in Black + INGLOT in 439 + MAC Pigment in Teal + MAC Yellow Chrome + UD Virgin
Crease: MAC Swiss Chocolate + MAC Star Violet
Browbone: UD Virgin
Lashes: Max Factor False Lash Effect in Black
Eyebrows: MAC Omega

After applying the base, I went drew myself a winged eyeliner which I then coloured in with a purple and teal eyeshadow, creating a gradient effect. I pushed the eyeshadows on the eyeliner for a more vivid effect and more lasting power. I then applied a yellow eyeshadow just above the winged eyeliner. I lightly added a bit of pearl eyeshadow on top of the yellow eyeshadow to make it even more  distinct. A warm brown and a cranberry eyeshadow went in the crease for more depth and warmth. I used the same highlighter shade I used on top of the yellow eyeshadow to highlight my browbone, inner eye corners and 1/3 of my lower lid. Lastly I curled and applied a black mascara onto the upper lashes and filled in my brows with my holy grail colour.

Face:

Base: MAC Fix+
Concealer: Garnier Roll-On Anti-Dark Circles in Light/Medium + Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Longwear Concealer in Fair
Foundation: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in 02 Light + Revlon Nearly Naked in Ivory
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent
Blush/bronzer: Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink
Highlighter: /

I applied the Garnier concealer before applying my mixture of foundation to my face using the Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge. I then blended in the Collection 2000 concealer using the same sponge. I lightly powdered my T-zone using a translucent pressed powder. I used no highlighter as the foundation mix provides enough dewiness already.

Lips:

Stila Convertible Color in Gerbera

So now I have a question for you guys; what does summer do to your choice of make-up? Do you stick to your neutrals? Go for a bold color on the waterline or just skip the whole shebang all together and go naked (well, not literally… I hope)?
