Eyeshadow - July 3rd, 2012
Despite it being summer, it was mostly overcast today and I felt gloomy. So, I decided some dark, dark eye makeup was just the thing to match my mood. I rustled through my stash and came up with some appropriately darkened purples that were perfect. Black Rose Minerals (who is having a 4th of July sale btw) has a great almost-black violet that was perfect, along with a dark plum from Meow Cosmetics.
The lid color is Dour, from Meow Cosmetics. Dour is from the Shattered Equinox collection, and is a midnight plum with golden sheen. This color is seriously beautiful! I used Coma Black from Black Rose Minerals in the crease. Coma Black, from the Luciferi collection, is a darkly deep violet. I used Pixie Epoxy underneath to make sure that all the sparkles and shimmers from both these colors really stuck on. The picture isn’t doing Coma Black proper justice, it’s definitely got a strong purple sheen. The highlight is Ice Princess, from Pumpkin & Poppy. I used L’Oreal HiP Kohl Eyeliner in black on the waterline, and essence’s I Love Rock Gloss Eye Pencil on the upper lashline. I really love this glossy black pencil, btw. I patted more Coma Black on top of the glossy pencil, as well as using it on the lower lashline.
The blush is Mesmerize, from Fyrinnae. Mesmerize is a medium berry shade with no brown tones. The lipstick is Aristo-cat from MAC.
