Soooo… You might have noticed before that I like dares. I cannot turn down a good challenge. So when Demak’up challenged me to create an inspiring facelook I could not resist. I had to come up with a fun, modern and daring look that still fits me. And I think I can say that I have succeeded! Today I’m going to share my facelook with you.
This was the result of several experiments, this is my face look. I wanted to do something more than my regular natural look (even though there is absolutely nothing wrong with a natural look, it was just missing the necessary vavavoom). I like darker colours around my eyes, i feel like they make my blue eyes really pop. This look is elegant because of the classic eyes and face and even the bright lips. However this facelook is also a bit rebellious! In traditional make up there is an unwritten rule that one cannot combine bright lips with heavy eye make up. I think this is so old-fashioned! In this day and age there are no more rules. Ladies, it’s time to ditch that handbook and go wild! Challenge yourself! And i did, I boldly combined my dark eyes with a dark purplish pink lipstick. It works!
On my lids I am wearing a grayish purple with a sheen, in my crease is a black shade of shadow with (subtle) gold shimmer. I paired this with a metallic skin toned highlighter on my brow bone. My lips are sporting a lovely matt lipstick in a purplish pink. My skin (which is being a menace at the moment) appears smooth and clear with the help of a matt foundation, an orange blush and a silver highlighter (and, duh, concealer!) .
Curious as to what I’ve used exactly?
