Illamasqua Week - FOTD 4

A more exciting look today :)

I actually think it's quite flattering!

Face: Cargo foundation, ELF concealer, Illamasqua Loose powder in LP005, Illamasqua powder blush in Nymph, Illamasqua Illuminatior in Fondle.

Eyes: Lancome Oscillation mascara in black, Illamasqua powder blush in Nymph, Illamasqua powder eyeshadow in Sylph and Rasp, Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Whiplash.

Lips: Illamasqua medium pencil in Whiplash, Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Torrid.

Here's a brief how-to if anyone wants to copy this look :)
I prepared my face as usual (today i wanted fuller coverage so i used a new foundation, review coming soon) then lightly applied powder with a flat-top brush. Then i applied blush quite heavilly in a 'c' shape from my temples to cheekbones then i used the illuminator lightly over the blush. I applied the same blush colour lightly over my eyelids, then used a darker, bright pink eyeshadow on the outer v, crease and under my eye. I used Sylph, a light iridescent shadow on my browbone and the inner corners of my eyes then used the medium pencil in Whiplash on my waterline and finished off with mascara. Then i used the pencil again to line my lips (following their natural line) and fill them in completely before topping them off with torrid lip gloss using a lip brush.

In other news, my bolshy sister managed to get my bank charges halved, so i'm very pleased :)
And yes i know my eyebrows look very silly :P


  1. Great news about your sister!

    Why do your eyebrows look silly? I thought they complemented the interestingness of the look. But hen again mine are super larege and pale so maybe that's what people think of mine. But no, I stand by my eybrows!! who want's to be a clone of everyone else....
    Great look including the eyebrows!

  2. What a fab look! The colors complement each other so beautifully! Torrid looks lovely on your lips :) I wish they sold that color in U.S. Sephora stores.

  3. This looks GORGEOUS! I especially love the lips <3

  4. AMG I love love love the lips!

  5. Ooooh I love it. Love the bold blush and the lip colour :D

    Yay halved bank charges! Gotta love forceful relatives...

  6. yayy! I had no idea what bolshy was, so i googled it. I'm glad she halved your bank charges! I LOVE YOUR pink eye look and green lips!

  7. ...I love the word bolshy. Congrats on getting your bank charges halved!

    I just read your reply to my question about your eyelashes: wow, you're so lucky! D=

    It might be just my imagination but I think I can see what you meant about the Illuminator in these pics. Your face has a lovely glow to it :)

  8. Amaaaazing. You look like a doll! That is the most amazing lip color I've ever seen also. It suits your look perfectly <3

  9. Hehe, "bolshy." Normally I think that unusual lip colors look terrible on most, and are better left for photoshoots. But with the eye makeup, I think you look great. You look like an anime character with 3-D eyebrows :)

  10. I love the colors in all of this...the green lips, pink shadow, blue eyes, pale hair. Damn you pulled this off!

  11. :-) this look is awesome, I absolutely love and the lime lips. I'm also really happy to hear about the bank charges <3

  12. Love love love this look! Its unexpected how much the lip color brings out your eyes!!
    I definitely need to get my hands on more Illamasqua lipglosses
    I gave you an award on my blog, please check it out :D

  13. You look like a cute, creepy doll in a good way! You have big, pretty eyes. :-)

  14. LOL @ BLIX's comment.

    Duuuuuude, I dont think I've ever seen anybody wear lime green lips before! You go, Glenn Coco!

  15. Love how you can pull off green lips! :). Love this! Also I need to get nymph in my life - it's such a gorgeous colour! xo

  16. Pink & Green! Prizewinning combination.
    I have got to get some of those Intense Glosses. I mainly have cheap (albeit good) colourful lip stuff, I should get something posh for a change.


I love comments and try to reply to every one i get.
