The Penguin Challenge

I’m participating in a fun 3 part challenge called the Penguin Challenge. Part 1 is to use the colors Black & White. So for the penguin challenge, I used Sugarpill (affiliate link) Tako and Lumi mixed together, along with Bulletproof, to create my winged look. I did the black winged out crease, but I also did a winged out matching liner with Lumi.

How to achieve the look:

  1. Prep the eye with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Mix Sugarpill Tako and Sugarpill Lumi together on your brush, then apply as a wash from the lash line to the eyebrows.
  3. Apply Sugarpill Bulletproof in the crease.
  4. Use Too Faced 3 Way Liner to line the upper and lower lash line.
  5. Line the lower waterline with Nyx white liner.
  6. With MAC Fix+, apply Lumi to the lower lash line, extending it out to mimic the black triangle in the crease. Also apply right under eyebrows.
  7. Add mascara and you’re ready to go!

I stole Dave’s plush penguin speakers (for his ipod) for this picture. He took the picture, hence the cleavage *facepalm*.

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Sugarpill Tako mixed with Lumi – all over eye area
  • Sugarpill Bulletproof – crease
  • Sugarpill Lumi (with MAC Fix+) – under brows and along lower lash line
  • Too Faced 3 Way Liner – upper and lower lash line
  • Nyx white eyeliner – lower waterline
  • Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso
  • Smashbox Lash Primer
  • Milani Runway Lashes Mascara


  • Laura Geller Balance-in-brighten foundation in Porcelain
  • Nyx Taupe – blush/contour
  • tarte provocateur in Champagne – highlight


  • Urban Decay lipstick in Oil Slick

To fit with the black and white theme, I stuck to just a contour shade instead of blush. I also used a sheer black lipstick.

      This is so very Cirque Du Soleil – which is a compliment, promise!  I love going to those circuses because I could be amazed by the makeup for days.
