I saw Naomi having a contest. Whee, that got me excited. Till I saw what colour she wanted the contestants to use. My heart took a nose dive.
The one colour that makes my eyes look wonderfully bruised and swollen. You see, yellow skin really don't go with purple. It some how brings out the 'yellowness' in me. But I really wanted to joined it and all week while at work and while driving, I kept wondering how to create and what colour to mix with the purple so I don't look like;
- a) Barney wanna-be
- b) Victim of assault or something
I give up!
Having given up, I decided to just go ahead and pile whatever and do whatever just for the heck of it since I'm going to wash everything off anyway. Added the NYX pearl mania power in lilac, the one colour I would usually avoid since it's somewhat violet. EEch on my skin after that added MAC Paint pot in blackground since I don't wanna waste my BB gel liner. Put MAC Typographic on top and it wasn't black enough. So I drew everything with the eyeliner Elyn gave me, Bourjois Crayon eye pencil. Took a step back and hey, it wasn't that bad!
Slap on Kate foundation on half of my face along with Dodo Palgantong loose powder, MAC Blush of Youth and took the pictures and cross my fingers that this do.
Now what to do with my messed up right eyes? Oh lets just try to make it look even with the left. 7 minutes later, I ended up a *ahem* 'somewhat' similar left eye. Hee hee.
Of course, me being me. I had a super strong coffee just before I started everything so by the time I tried putting the lashes on, my hands were shaking very badly. Serves me right! I hadn't had strong coffee for a while now so I didn't expected this. My lashes came up a bit funny thanks to my shaky hands, the lip sticks part was worst, I started dropping things. ARGH!
But anyway, all's done. Now I'm left wondering if I should even submit something like this to Naomi. *scratch head* I doubt I'll be doing this entire look again... *sigh* I'm stuck again.
Since it was an impromptu testing, I didn't use my usual stuffs much
A little info
I wanted to use as little products as possible mainly because I do realize that there are a lot of people out there (including me) that don't own a lot of make up and don't have like over 10 eyeshadows in one particular shade. I also want to keep the look somewhat easy to duplicate so just about anyone can try this look on their own. I know Naomi requested for a wearable look and I wanted to make this wearable daynight that can also be transcribe (is that the word?) to a night time look easily just as well.
