FOTD: Locked Doors as Liner

locked doors linerIn her review of Hello Waffle’s Painted Flowers Collection, Pigmented Lips suggested that Locked Doors would make a great liner on people with pale skintones, especially with blue eyes. I am both pale and blue-eyed, so I decided to try it out! I needed a simple look for running errands, so I took my usual no-make up make up locked and added Locked Doors to it as a sparkly liner.

  • Stila Bare (In the Light Palette)
  • Stila Kitten (In the Light Palette)
  • Darling Girl Superstar Serum
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Buxom Lash Mascara

I started by priming my lids and applying a skintone matte base color. Then I mixed Locked Doors, a sparkly medium brown, with Superstar Serum and applied it as liner, including lightly on my lower lashline. I highlighted my tearduct with a sparkly white gold shadow and applied mascara. I did my usual foundation/concealer/powder routine and tapped some 1-Up, a peachy pink loose blush, out onto a mirror and applied it with my usual blush brush. I finished with Come Out Come Out, an apricot tinted balm.

Usually if I wear make up, I want it to be more visible, but I could imagine myself wearing this to work once I have a job that I can wear make up to. The sparkles in Locked Doors make my eyes look brighter for sure, but it’s not in any way bold. Work appropriate for sure.
