Illamasqua inspired eyeliner

I don't usually post promo images but I'm making an exception for these from the new Illamasqua 'I'mperfection' collection. They are amazing!






Gorgeous aren't they all? At the moment I have no money for makeup (thanks in part to the Illamasqua sale that just ended) but when I do that green gloss is MINE!

The last photo shows one of the signature looks of the collection, the speckled eye. I absolutely loved this idea. It's so simple and yet I don't remember having seen it done anywhere before! It reminds me of a feather or snow. Both good things!

So anyway I had a go at recreating the look and I absolutely love it on me!

  

 






Wearing:
Face: Illamasqua Skin Base in 02, Sleek concealer and Correcter in 1, Illamasqua powder blusher in SOPHIE
Eyes: MUA matte eyeshadow in 16, Illamasqua eyeshadow in Blink, Illamasqua Precision Ink liquid eyeliners in Scribe and Abyss, MUA pencil eyeliner in Snow White (on waterliner), black mascara
Lips: No 7 Moisture Drence lipstick in Waterlily

OK I think I went a bit overboard on the white but I think it looks great and I felt absolutely gorgeous!
It was dead easy to do too. I think I might try adding some pink or other colour ala Robyn. Will you be trying this look? What do you think of the campaign images?

    1. No it's dead easy! You just do liner with a wing using liquid eyeliner and then dot little bits of the black and white all over. It doesn't matter if some of the dots are bigger or different shape than others because that just adds to it looking like a natural speckle and not polka dots. You should definitely give it a try :)

  5. Oh Lils, you look so so beautiful! I think it's a perfect rendition - not OTT at all, going a bit deeper seems to really open up the eye. I really want to try this out now! xxx

    1. Aww thank you so much! You should try it! I don't think I've seen the look on anyone apart from caucasians so far and I bet it would look amazing, the white will really 'pop' with a deeper skin tone :)
