Retro Cherry


This was just a simple look i did when going to a friends house. Pretty basic, just eyeliner, brows and then slightly overdrawn lips. Sort of 40s inspired.
Can't remember what was on my face, which is annoying because i think it was looking particularly good. Typical!
Eyes: Sleek circus palette white (terrible pigmentation, but was just used to highlight my browbone), black eyeliner, black mascara
Eyebrows: middle colour of the brow powders on Jelly Pong Pong's Wakeup Makeup kit
Lips: NYX Round lipstick in Black Cherry

Lips like these look good (to me anyway) when i have a neutral  or slight smile but when i really smile i look bizarre! Check it out:

I think it's because it's not my natural lipline, which makes it a bit clownish looking. Which i don't mind because i like clown makeup, though usually i do more Pierrot inspired looks not whiteface or auguste types.
As you can see i need to re-dye my hair.

Excitingly my air inspired look won second place in MizzWorthy and Illamasqua's Elementals contest :) Thank everyone who commented either on my blog or the contest page with kind words.

Also i just hit 400 followers, which is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much to any new additions reading this :)

  14. Your face can takes any kind of makeup very well.

    I know that sounds like a really creepy thing to say but I'm sure you know what I mean, your looks are seldom the same and yet they all seem to work.

  23. This retro style fits you so well!
    I just discovered your blog, and ending up reading it all :)
    About the liptick, I have actually the same problem: I just sweep the middle of the lower lip to get less liptick on that spot, and it's looking much more natural.
