Eyeshadow, Makeup Fun - February 5th, 2012
It’s been kind of a rough week in Claire-land, so I didn’t really do much makeup. But I was bound and determined to do this week’s Makeup Challenge from Toxid-Lotus, because it was Dragons. And Dragons rock. I decided that my dragons were going to be greenish and bluish and sparkly. So that’s what I did.
I used Electric Stardust from Fyrinnae in the inner corners. Electric Stardust is bright, cheery, shimmery mint green that can change to a lighter aqua depending on the light. The outer corners are Poseidon from Black Rose Minerals. Poseidon is a teal base with a high shimmer finish and turquoise glitter. It’s one of my favorite teal colors. The crease color is Cyranose from Linnaeus Cosmetics. Cyranose is a dark green with a lot of green sparkle. The highlight is Divinity from Persephone Minerals (which is on clearance right now, go buy it!!!). Divinity is a pale, glowing green highlight glistening with sparkles of green, silver, & green-gold. In order to make all this stick, I used Pixie Epoxy as well.
On my cheeks, I applied Morgana Cryptoria’s Mysterious Veil, for a green sheen. A light dusting of Bare Escentuals’ blush in Secret went on top.
The lip color is Ultra Phantom Lip Lustre from Fyrinnae. Ultra Phantom is a sheer aqua sparkle that turns to pink in different light or angles. It’s an awesome color, since it’s sheer so you can go light, or pile it on for an almost frosty look.
Dragons was fun. I kind of want to do a red-orange-green dragons look too. Maybe next week.
