Today's look is a super hot pink eye! I have done a lot of pink eyes lately, which is weird since pink is normally my least used colour. I think I have noticed that and have been making a somewhat conscious effort to use it more often.
I also have crimped, wavy hair in these pictures from a pirate themed party the other night. I thought my hair would be more piratey if I crimped it and then put some little braids all through it. this is what it looked like the next day. I have done this kind of hair before, so you can see the tutorial for it here! I loooooove my hair like this and really want to do it more often! I'll have a post with pics of my pirate makeup up soon! Unfortunately it was a busy night and I didn't get many good pictures, so I'm still trying to decide which to use...
Anyways, on to the look. I went pretty bold everywhere. I did some contouring and bronzing with my ELF Blush & Bronzing Cream duo in St. Lucia, then a bright eye and a bold, dark lip. Here it is:
I used my only Manic Panic eyeshadow to do this look and it is one of their Love Colour eyeshadows in Mod-A-Go-Go, which is an almost neon hot pink. It has a very matte base, but it is packed with silver glitter! I've had this colour for a long time and it is one of the brightest hot pinks that I own, but it does take a lot of work to get it on. The hardest part really is getting it on to the brush. It's a really hard eyeshadow so you need to jam your brush in it to get any product. Once you work it onto your brush though, the colour payoff is nice, plus the glitter transfers onto the lid well too!
To do this look I placed Mod-A-Go-Go all over the lid, on the bottom lashline and lid, and all in the outer corner so it formed a big oval around my eye. I then used a Star Crushed Minerals eyeshadow in Wine in my crease, outer corner and slightly on the bottom lashline. I deepened the crease further with a bit of a matte black eyeshadow from NYX. I blended all the edges out with Madison Street Beauty's Rose Quartz eyeshadow, which is a matte pale pink. I then lined my waterline with black and did a really elongated eyeliner wing on the top. I also used a shimmery white called Lexington from Glamour Doll Eyes on my inner corner.
For my blush I used NARS Mata Hari and on my lips is Pandora from Impulse Cosmetics. I think this is my new favourite lipstick in the normal range of colours. I still have favourites out of my blues and greens though!
That is it for this pink look. I probably won't do another pink look for a while, it really isn't my favourite colour. I would much rather cover my face in greens or blues or bright neon oranges!
What is your least favourite makeup colour? Do any of your products get ignored because of it?
