Yesterday I posted my swatches of Baroque Cosmetics’s Always With Me Collection. Today I’ve got five looks using these shadows that I’m really excited to share with you. For the most part the looks are on the soft and subtle side.
Look 1: Confetti Candy and Smells Like Human Spirit For this, I primed my lids and then applied Confetti Candy to the inner half with a flat brush. I flipped it over and used the other side to apply Smells Like Human Spirit to the outer half, up slightly past the crease at the outer corner and overlapping a little bit in the middle. I blended the two together to get a smooth transition. I lined my upper and lower lashlines with a lot of black pencil liner and smudged it out with a brush. I smudged it out past the end of my eye in the outer corners. I mixed a tiny bit of Smells Like Human Spirit with Superstar Serum and used it to line my lower waterline. I finished the look with mascara. (Lips are a blend of Kae Q Sapodilla and Fyrinnae Meloncholy, a combo I absolutely love.)
Look 2: Ocean Railway and Herbal Bath Soak I primed my lids and applied Pixie Epoxy over the top. After it set I patted Ocean Railway on top of the Pixie Epoxy, concentrating more color close to my lashes and stopping before I got all the way to the crease. I used a swiping motion to fill in near my crease with less intense color. Then I picked up a little bit of Herbal Bath Soak with a round blending brush and used it to blend out the upper edge along my crease. I lined my upper lashes with thick black liquid liner and added a dramatic wing at the end. I curled and mascaraed my lashes and finished the look with a tiny bit of Ocean Railway applied to my lower waterline with a liner brush. (Lips are Kae Q Guava.)
Look 3: Bathhouse, Boiler Room and Confetti Candy After applying primer, I patted Bathhouse all over my lids, focusing the color most intensely on the inner part. Then I applied Boiler Room at the outer corner and fanned it up and out. I blended it down and in over the red at the outer corner as well. Then I put a little bit of it on a round blending brush and worked it into the crease, concentrating on the outer part. I used a fluffy brush to highlight under my browbone with a teensy bit of Confetti Candy. I added dark brown winged liquid liner to my upper lashline and lined my lower lashline with a golden brown glittery pencil liner. Then I deepened the outer third of my lower lashline with dark brown pencil liner. I finished with mascara. (Lips are Shiro’s Red Wedding.)
Look 4: Give Me Sen, Herbal Bath Soak, Dragon, Confetti Candy First I applied Give me Sen to the inner third of my already-primed eyelids. I rubbed my brush on a tissue and then used the same brush to apply a vertical stripe of Herbal Bath Soak down the middle of each eyelid. I cleaned off my brush once more and use it to apply Dragon to the outer third. I used a blending brush to very lightly blur the lines between the colors. Then I picked up some Herbal Bath Soak with a blending brush and applied it above my crease and along my lower lashline. I blended out the top edge. Then I used a tiny bit of Confetti Candy as a brow highlight. I lined my upper and lower lashes with a little black pencil liner and ended with mascara.
Look 5: Give Me Sen, Smells Like Human Spirit, Confetti Candy I started by priming my lids. Then I swept Confetti Candy all over to give a sheer wash of shimmer. I mixed Give Me Sen with Superstar Serum to make a paste and then applied it as winged liner. I also applied some along my lower lashes and connected the bottom line to my wing and filled in the triangle they made. I took my tiniest brush and applied Smells Like Human Spirit as an inner corner highlight. Both my upper and lower lashes got a coat of mascara. (Lips are Shiro’s It’s Called Love, which is also Spirited Away themed.)
So those are my five Always With Me looks. I had a ton of fun with this collection. I was really surprised by how much I liked Smells Like Human Spirit when used in actual looks. I think overall look number one was my favorite, and actually pretty different from my usual looks. If I’m ever in the mood for wham bam in your face blue sparkles though, look number 2 is where it’s at. What about you? Which look is your favorite?
