Glossy Eye Make-up

I fancied doing some creative make-up this week, so I thought I'd try a glossy colourful eye. I'd done a greasy, black look before for a photoshoot, but this is quite a different look.

I'm quite pleased with how it looks, and would love to try this out with a decent photographer!

I used my own special blend of 'eye gloss', which basically consists of Vaseline and clear lip gloss. I applied that over Sugarpill Dollipop and Hi-Fi Cosmetics Live Large. Under the eye is Sugarpill Poison Plum, and Barry M Dazzle Dust in 66 (matt black).

The key to the glossy coloured eye, if you're wanting it to look neat, and not really grungy, is to apply very carefully, taking care not to drag the eyeshadow. I used a cotton bud to pat and roll the gloss over the eye lid.

Let me know what you think!

Tropical Fish Collaboration with Robyn: Dory Eyes!

I've been so bad with the blog lately! Sorry! My makeup for photographic work and college seems to have sucked the creative bug out of me. But I'm back with a tropical fish collaboration with Robyn of Stay Beautiful, which has been in the pipelines a long long time!

We decided to do Nemo and Dory, aka the clownfish and regal blue tang. I did an interpretation of a blue tang on my eyes:


For the blue, I used Illamasqua powder eyeshadow in Dance. The yellow is Sugarpill Buttercupcake. To blend out the blue, I used Fyrinnae Winter Again.

This is a pretty basic interpretation to be honest, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of blogging still. If you have any ideas of what sort of looks you'd like to see from me, let me know!
