Yes! I finally had some time to create an FOTD entry! Actually, this look had been in my mind since December last year but I had been too busy to do it. It’s inspired from Jiyeon’s makeup in T-ara’s Sexy Love music video and Taylor Momsen’s smokey eye-that’s-never-coming-off. I’d specially bought Make Up For Ever’s Glitter and Mist & Fix for this but silly me had misplaced the Mist & Fix so I had to find an alternative – water – for the glitter adhesive. Here are a few more shots of the look, including a close-up of the eye makeup, and the list of products I used:
For Face: Dior‘s Diorskin Forever Compact SPF 25 PA++ in Shade 020, Illamasqua‘s Powder Blusher in Ambition, Laneige‘s Love in Bloom Sculpting Blusher (for highlighting) and Bobbi Brown‘s Eyeshadow in Shade 61 Saddle (for contouring of the nose).
For Eyes: Highlighter shade from the Wet n Wild Coloricon Palette in 248 Lust as a base, NYX‘s Jumbo Eye Pencil in 626 Knight, NARS Cosmetics’ eyeshadow in Night Clubbing, Make Up For Ever‘s Glitter in Multicoloured White 3 (in the middle of the upper lids), L’Oreal‘s HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in 915 Silver Lightning (for the inner eyes), Urban Decay‘s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar (for lining the lower lids) and Majolica Majorca‘s Lash King Mascara.
For brows: Bobbi Brown‘s Eyeshadow in Shade 61 Saddle.
For lips: Nivea‘s lip balm, YSL‘s Rouge Volupté in 01 Nude Beige and GOSH Cosmetics’ Light’N Shine Lip Glaze in 01 White.
Using a wet brush for the glitter (swatch and close-up here) was a great idea. The glitter stayed on for hours, even when I napped with the makeup on. Now that I’ve found this works, I’m not sure spending my money on the Mist & Fix was a clever thing to do. The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 626 Knight (swatch here) was used as a base for the dark eyeshadow later on and it was a lucky coincidence that both the Eye Pencil and Night Clubbing were very similar in terms of their colour palette – gold glitter/shimmer on black powder.
Is there any particular look you’ll like to see up on Laced Ivory? Do send in your comments, or drop me an email and I’ll try to work on them!
