Funky Arabesque FOTD

Wednesday, 9 February 2011

So here's the funky arabesque look I did the night of the makeovers, but first let me show you the FOTD before the funky look; Simple black topliner with coloured bottom liner; in this case the Bourjois liner in Bleu Clinquant.

As requested, I did the lips with the Pixi Lip Blush in Desire (purple stain) and a bit of Vaseline. My lips are quite pigmented, so the true colours don't show up, but it suits me just fine! For the cheeks I used Sleek Pomegranate cos I wanted to use purple and turquoise (as I love these two colours together).

As for the funky/arabesque look, here's a list of what was used:
> Manly 120 palette - turquoises and purples and pink
> UD 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
> Sleek Ink Pot
> Bourjois metallic eyeliner in Bleu Clinquant
> Khuraira Age Control Concealer in Light
> MAC moisturecover concealer in NC35
> Dior Show mascara (black)
> Sleek Pomegranate blush
> Sleek Pout Polish in Raspberry Souffle (on top of Pixi Desire)

To start I primed the eye with UDPP, then applied turquoise eyeshadow all over the eyelid, followed by purple in the socket, up to the eyebrow, blending upwards but not using too much purple. I added light pink to the browbone, blending down into the purple, and then blending the purple and turquoise in the crease.
For the bottom liner, I used the Bourjois metallic eyeliner, followed by Sleek Ink Pot under it, following the Bourjois line carefully and bringing it up at the outer corner of the eye. For the topliner I also used Sleek Ink Pot, with UD Zero liner inside the eyelid at the top.
To finish the eyes, I used Dior Mascara after adding Khuraira & MAC concealer under the eyes (the Khuraira is so thick and disguises the dark circles so good!).
For the cheeks & lips I used Sleek; Pomegranate blush as it's a shade of purple and Raspberry Souffle Pout Polish as its a pink-purple tone that I love!

So here's my two looks, it's my treat for not posting as frequent as I'd like to!
Hope you like, let me know if you have any requests!
