Why so serious? Have fun with your make-up…you know you want to!
With my bright red hair you would think I would be restricted with make-up options! Think again. I remember in a very early post saying there are no rules with make-up and that is what I remind myself often. I do try where possible to use complimentary colours and more importantly make sure that the look is one I am comfortable with.
I am sure when people see me walking down the street with red hair, hot pink lips and green smokey eyes comparisons to ‘Ronald Mc Donald’ come to mind- especially when I wear stripes. Joking. Or am I? Yes…I am! I couldn’t possibly be restricted when I am having so much fun.
My current obsession is green anything so I try and incorporate it in my looks. I had Batman on the brain yesterday and so this look was inspired by that. Hope you enjoy. Details below.
You look may come out different according to your eye shape. I have hooded lids! What’s that you ask? Click here to find out more.
Here are the pics!
On my face:
MAC Conceal and Correct Palette in Dark. Under eyes on on the lid. Also used as brow tidy. No foundation in this look as my skin is taking a break.
Strut eyebrow pencil (MAC). This is a reddish brown colour. In previous posts the one I have used is called Spiked. All shadows are by MAC for this look. Arena as highlight. Texture as blending transition colour. Green colour is called Humid. This was used to set the green eyeliner pencil in the water and lower lash line called Minted. Purple shadow is called Spoiled Rich (from the Archie collection). I used a NYX Jumbo pencil Purple Velvet as the base. Eyelure lashes 145.
NARS Dolce Vita and Albatross- gorgeous gold highlight.
NARS Como (nude pink) NYX African Violet
