Poison Absinthe

Today I played around with a different makeup technique and Pixie Epoxy. I love the results. I should have used a bit of foundation under my eyes or concealer, because I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night.


Eyes:

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark – widely in crease
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy – lid and lower crease
Sobe Botanicals Glowstick – inner corner of lid
Sugarpill Absinthe – inner lid
Fyrinnae Leopard Print Galaxy – outer lid
Sugarpill Weekender – outer v and lower crease
Sugarpill Poison Plum – on top of Weekender to deepen
MAC Vapour – on browbone to highlight and inner eye area
Wet n’ Wild Black Creme Liner – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Midnight Cowboy – lower water line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Stray Dog – lower lash line
Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Primer
Flirt! It Curls Mascara in Bombshell Black
Cover Girl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black
Avon Glimmersticks Brow Pencil in Soft Black

Face:
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Perfecting Base Primer
Hard Candy Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder – dusted on t-zone
Meow Purrfect Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese -dusted lightly on t-zone

Cheeks:
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark – to contour
Sobe Botanicals Blush in Icing on the Cake

Lips:
MAC Lipliner in Summerfruit
MAC Lipstick in Shy Girl

8. Blend out the edge of Weekender in the upper crease. I used an ecoTools smudge brush.
9. Apply Poison Plum to outer v and crease. I used the Sigma E30.
10. Apply Vapour to browbone. I used the ecoTools highlighter.
11. Apply Vapour to the inner eye area. I used the ecoTools highlighter.
12. Apply Black Creme liner. I used the Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush.
13. Apply Midnight Cowboy to lower water line.
14. Apply Stray Dog to lower lash line.
15. Brush brows and then define brows with Soft Black Pencil.
16. Apply mascara primer.

      The combo of green and purple is so modern, I like it a lot! ;) I love that you kept the rest of the face pretty neutral! :) x
