Smokey Eyes and Lip Tars

My nephew accused me of having had plastic surgery when he saw this photo. I guess I should take it as a compliment. lol.

This was for a smokey eye assignment. I used mostly wines and purples. It looked much darker than this in person, but that's what happens when you use a flash.

I used Chanel Vitalumiere in 40 on my face, and MAC studio finish concealer in NW 20 mixed with a little eye cream under the eyes. Over that I applied Benefit's Powderflage.

The lip color is a mix of Lip Tars that I unfortunately don't remember.

I like how it turned out. I just wish the eyes showed up better in the photo.

Is it Spring yet?

In honor of sunny days and warm feet, I convinced my good friend M to let me try this look on her. It was the first time I ever worked on Asian features, so I'm fairly impressed with how it turned out. I managed to match her skin tone perfectly with some Kryolan cream foundation, and the false lashes really bring out her pretty eyes. Her lips are my fave, though. She's blessed with wonderfully full lips so they were easy to work with. I totally ripped the look from Petrilude (he did it quite a while back) and I love it. I used MAC 'Nightmoth' lipliner to line the lip and fill in the corners, then used OCC's Lip Tars in Katrica, Anime and Safety Orange. The blue wig and hair clip are mine, but they look so much cuter on her!
