A softer Neo Sci Fi themed look :)  I didn’t pick up Time & Space/Magnetic Fields, but I used Bronze & Smut as substitutes instead.  Replace at will!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Evening Aura eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Expensive Pink eyeshadow on outer lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer crease, Smut eyeshadow in outer crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) above crease and on brow, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Posey blushcreme with Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Sci Fi Delity lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) on lips.

So I know we had a post a few weeks ago about what kind of look would you want to wear but haven’t, and a lot of you mentioned red lips.  You’re not alone with having a bit of trepidation when it comes to consideration a red lip–I have plenty!  Especially when it comes to deeper, vampy reds.  I invite you to take the Temptalia Red Lips Challenge and try out some reds for yourself.  If you’d like to post your results, just send them along to temptalia@gmail.com.  But I still urge you all to try them out, even if only in the bathroom by yourself!

For my challenge, I chose my arch nemesis:  Alta Moda. You can see how Alta Moda looks on its own, but how I attempted to make it more “me” friendly by adding a lipglass on top.  Plus, you can see a comparison of this look with and without upper lash liner.

I used Cash Flow paint pot (LE) on lid, Casablanca eyeshadow (LE) on inner and middle of lid, Embark eyeshadow on outer lid, Smut eyeshadow on outer crease, Nylon eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line (in some photos), Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks with Daisydust beauty powder (PRO) to highlight. I wore Alta Moda prolongwear with clear gloss and Red Romp lipglass (LE) (in some photos) on my lips.

Cash Flow = Patina; Casablanca = Nylon, Other Worldly = Trace Gold; Red Romp = Russian Red

Ohh, a little overboard in this look. I’m probably heading up to my parents’ house, so I’ll end up wearing a different look there anyway! (I usually spend all day outside running around with my puppy, so minimal makeup is usually better!)

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!
