Unicorns Lounging by the Poolside

I’m wearing blue again today, since April is Autism Awareness month. I keep forgetting to take pix of it but my toes are Illamasqua Phallic with a coat of Cult Nails Hypnotize Me on top, making them an awesome deep blue with sparkly flecks of teal. Anyway, back to the look at hand. I just sort of played with colors again, keeping in mind that I wanted to use Poolside as my central color and went from there.

I started with TFSI, because a good primer is a necessity! I used Cinderella on my browbone and blended downwards to my crease. I applied Poolside to the inner and outer lid, leaving a small gap for the highlight on my lid. I went back with MAC Fix+ and used that with Poolside again, to intensify the color. I used Mermaid in the small gap on my lid, and then went back over it with Fix+ to intensify it. I applied more Poolside to my lower crease. Above Poolside, I applied OMGWTF in my crease and blended upwards and inwards. I then realized I needed to add Mermaid to my inner v. I applied Poolside as an elongated cat eye shape at the outer lash line and blended some more. I took Galaxy and applied that along the lower lash line. I then blended some Poolside on top of Galaxy along the lower lid. Next I used Unicorn at the elongated cat eye shape in the outer v, blending inwards and upwards. I used Vanilla Bean under my eyebrows and blended. I took MUFE Aqua Liner in 13 Matte Black and lined closely to my upper lash line, slightly thickening at the outer corner and I used a bit along the outer lower lash line. I applied UD 24/7 liquid liner in Siren above that for a subtle double liner effect. I used UD 24/7 liner in Binge on the lower waterline. I defined my brows with UD’s Frigid.

      Love this! How are you liking the Dior bb cream?

      • Phyrra

        The texture is really nice. The color is awful on me. It’s too dark and orange on me.
