So here is the cover of issue #43 that my look is based on. I wish they would feature a how to of each cover look in the magazine, so here is my modified version, made easy!
And the products I used were:
- the Pore fessional by Benefit
- Studio Fix Fluid in NW10 by MAC
- Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay
- Bulletproof pressed eyeshadow by Sugarpill
- a white/silver shade from Lipsy London's Nighttime Goddess pallet
- Supercat black eyeliner pen from Soap and Glory
- Exaggerate waterproof black eye definer pencil from Rimmel
- Shade 04 Kate lipstick also from Rimmel London (a very dark purple)
- Feather eyelashes from Stargazer (I had to cut them up into various small bits as you can see below)
So I started with my standard primer and foundation routine of the Benefit pore reducer with MAC foundation on top, and next I covered my whole lid up to the brow bone with this very white silver shadow. Please do excuse this very messy pallet I haven't cleaned it in a while!
Next I blended my black eyeshadow into the outer corners of my eyes to create a very slight wing, and lined my eyes very thinly (a hard task for an eyeliner addict like me!) with the eyeliner pen. The fact that it was quite a fine tipped liner really helped to get the fine precise lines, as well as the those inner corner flicks!
Next I lined my upper and lower waterlines, and coloured my lower lash line as well. I then set about snipping up the feather lashes into smaller more useable portions, as they were originally a strip lash designed for the upper lids. I used a small portion of the inner lash corner and attatched to feather lashes to each one. I had to trim the feather lashes down a bit as they were very long. I also tried to leave as much of a usable lash strip as possible after all the trimming down, so I actually still have a smaller pair of feather lashes to use now. After this step I lightly shaded in my brows and added my lipstick to finish.
I'm thinking of doing a few more of these looks, as it was a very fun to do, although fiddly and challenging at times. So keep your eyes peeled!
