This is from last night, where I was just playing around with makeup in order to avoid studying. I was trying to do something super over-the-top, and when it all finished, I was like, “You know, I could see myself wearing this out!” Not for everyday of course, but you never know!
I used Blacktrack fluidline on lid, Carbon eyeshadow all over lid, Freshwater eyeshadow above crease, Turquatic reflects glitter above crease, Vex eyeshadow on brow, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid, Vex eyeshadow on lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Sunbasque blush on cheeks. I had Brew lipstick with Comet Blue dazzleglass (LE) my lips.
I adore red dresses, especially these deep, elegant ruby red dresses. They’re completely royal and classic, rather than in-your-face kind of red. My favorite choice would be something in line with the second look pictured, because golds complement reds so well, and yet there’s a touch of Cranberry eyeshadow to tie everything together. I feel like it’s an excellent choice for both depth, color, and overall style. But of course, with a dress in such a bold shade, going completely neutral on the eye is never a bad choice! I also like a soft smoky eye, something with a little bit of gold and a brown-gray, not so much straight black. Pink lips, nude lips, coral lips… anything goes. Even red lips could work with the appropriate eye (and the right shade of red). For a dress like this, I would concentrate on perfecting the skin and using a subtle blush to bring out my natural flush.
Naughty Nauticals is still a few days away for most of us (May 1st), but I know some of you will be heading to unveilings this Sunday, and some of you have already sneaked peeks at it! Here’s a close-up shot of Mutiny pigment to get your engine started, plus Debbie shared a TON of swatches with us earlier this month @ the forums.
