Todays Makeup

Today I felt a little rebellious (this does not happen very often, maybe once a year!) so my makeup reflects this. Some days I use makeup to help me look my best, other days my makeup is an expression of how I’m feeling. The latter is the case today.

Some people might get rid of negative energy by doing a kick boxing class and knocking a punchbag to kingdom come. I’m not that girl (I wish I was!). Instead, in a rather self destructive pattern, I like to keep smiling and laughing when there is trouble brewing. Since I’m not overly fabulous at expressing my emotions verbally, they come out in other ways; a painting, writing, my makeup and outfit choices.

Today, I think my makeup says it all :)

Eyes:  (MAC)

  • Parfait Amour – Inner 2/3’s of lid
  • Smut – Crease
  • Black Tied – Crease (to add depth)
  • Beautymarked – outer third of eye lid
  • Vanilla Pigment as highlight
  • Fluidline
  • Carbon over fluidline
  • Engraved liner on waterline
  • Loreal Telscopic Mascara

Face:

  • Loreal True Match N3 (completely too pink for me, I’m a warm not a neutral)
  • Laura Mercier Primer – Oil Free
  • Benefit Erase Paste
  • Strobe cream on cheekbones
  • MAC MSF Natural – Medium
  • Blush: Dollymix (inspired by Brittneegirl)

Lips:

  • MAC Pretty Please Lipstick

What do you think?

    The eyes are really striking. You look very rock chic, but in a kinda polished way (does that make sense??) Love purples but they dont seem to suit my blue eyes. Perhaps I’ll try again….we should all be a bit rebellious sometimes! x

    Which mascara did you use, Amy?

    In your post you said it’s L’Oreal Telescopic, but in your comment here you said, “The mascara is MAC Zoom”.

    I’m interested to know which one it is! :) Thanks!

    I love this look on you!I saw Aleksis (Alpha Blonde) wearing the MAC Parfait Amour e/s and it looked amazing, I’ve wanted it ever since although I wasn’t sure how it would look on a blonde. Now I know it looks fantastic, I’m definitely getting it. You look great!
