The Great Makeup Purge revealed a recent acquisition from Youngblood at The Makeup Show: A liquid gold liner. It made me remember two things: That it’s been a very long time since I’ve done a layered lashline, and that I need to secure passes for PHAME.
Looking at it now… maybe I should have skipped that lip. We’ll get to that in a minute.
The base is Armani Maestro Fusion in #7. I’m getting over the initial grey cast because it does adjust and I start to look like myself within about 5 minutes. So I resist the urge to ‘warm it up’ with a golden base or a bronzer and keep it moving. There is the slightest hint of Kiko Blush in #1 on the cheeks, just to tie it all together.
The eyes are Becca Pearl highlighter all over the lid. I wanted a ‘lifted’ base for the gold liner to play off of, and Pearl makes my lids look kind of ‘lit from within’ instead of looking like I applied actual product there. The base lash liner is from Aurora. This is normally an awful product because the felt tip really doesn’t dispense any viable pigment. BUT for this look it’s perfect because I just wanted to lay a base layer for the gold without the black having too much of a personality. The gold is the Youngblood Precious Metal liner in 18 Karat. Mascara is Charlotte Tilbury Legendary.
Lips are Caked Makeup Jelly Lip Fondant in Creme de la Creme. The finish was SO matte that I got the bright idea to pop a little Armani Ecstasy Lacquer in Amber in the center. Not my best idea. Next time I’ll use OCC Liptar in Hollywood. I think that would have been a better choice.
At least I can wash it off and keep it moving.
Now let me go get the PHAME passes before I forget again…
