FFF: Illamasqua Speckled Eyeliner makeup look

Friday, 1 March 2013

FFF is finally back after a little break.. and I thought I'd follow on from the last post with a speckled eyeliner look.
After the Illamasqua ImPerfection launch (read about it here), I felt so inspired after seeing Alex Box demonstrate the speckled eyeliner technique. I decided to do my own version as in the visual from the campaign (at the bottom of this post), but with normal black eyeliner and gold. 
I posted a preview on my Instagram (above) but here is the full look with the rest of the ImPerfection products:

Products used

> UDPP- Greed (yellow gold)
> UD Naked 2 - Bootycall, Tease & Blackout (eyebrows)
> NYC black liquid liner 
> UD 24/7 liquid eyeliner in El Dorado
> Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl kajal in 005 "Nude"
> Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara
> Khuraira ACC in Light 
> Graftobian HD foundation - Desert Sand
> Illamasqua Blush Duo in Hussy & Lover
> Illamasqua Immodest lipstick

After applying UDPP in Greed all over the eyelid, I used the NYC black liquid liner to create a simple fairly thin winged liner, then speckled with the same black liner along the wing. I then went in with the UD gold liquid liner (El Dorado) which is slightly glittery and did the same speckled effect on the eyeliner wing and followed it on to the main liner on the rest of the lid. Using a crease brush I then slightly contoured the eyelid using Tease in the crease and Bootycall on the brow bone. Blackout was used to fill the eyebrows with a angled brush. I lined the bottom inner waterline with the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Nude and finished off the eye with the Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara on top and bottom lashes and concealed under the eyes with Khuraira ACC in Light.
I used the Graftobian HD creme foundation lightly all over the face then using the blush up brush, lightly added both Hussy and Lover blushes, using Lover more than Hussy.
For the lips I used the new Illamasqua Immodest liptick:

I think the speckled eyeliner effect is really wearable when worn subtly like this, particularly if you dress it down with a nude liner on the waterline; I love how easy it is too!

Here's the original ImPerfection campaign visual that inspired me:
The flash on my camera washed out my blush unfortunately (it was a bit more prominent like in the promo image!), but I loved doing this look nevertheless. 

Would you wear this speckled look? What colour combinations would you try?



  1. This looks gorgeous! Think the black and gold work really well together x

  7. True. I just saw Coco's one (the blogger above) as well. Similar with two different techniques. I love your eye shape. Beautiful.

    1. Just saw it too, I agree it's great how you can tailor it to however heavy/speckled you like =D
      And thank you =) x

  8. lovely, I done a black, gold and white speckled look. I love your technique, it's great that this can be made to suit your own personal style and preference xo

    1. I love yours, think its one of the best I've seen so far, love it better than my version!
      And yep you're so right how it can be adapted =D xx

  9. Oh, I LOVE this! I've been getting so bored with the same old looks, and this is so different, yet completely wearable! I can't wait to try it!
