FOTD: Sparkly Purple Winged Liner

madness big I was in the mood for something simple, and when I don’t know what to do, I default to sparkly neutrals and winged liner. To give it just the tiniest smidgen of interest, I used Superstar Serum to make a sparkly blackened purple into my liner, instead of reaching for my usual black.

Madness look I really have very little to say about this look. I like it, but it’s basic.

madness glasses It also gave me an opportunity to use the lip gloss I’m trying to finish this month, so there’s that. Not the most exciting color, but it has sparkle too.

I primed my lids and then applied Doge, a sparkly pinkish champagne all over my lids. I mixed Madness, a glittery blackened purple, with superstar serum and applied it as winged liner. I had a little bit of the mixture leftover so I lined my bottom lashes too. I added mascara, did my usual face routine and finished with a slightly purple gloss with gold shimmer.

Madness makes a really good liner color. It was a GWP a while back, but it’s still up on Ten Three Lab’s site if you want to snag it. My sample is hand labelled because Cara very nicely tossed it in as an extra when I bought some stuff she was destashing. I’m glad I got to try it!

FOTD: Trepanation and That Goat Got Devil Eyes Challenge

trepanation big┬áThis is my second to last look from the IMAM sample challenge. /u/sparsile suggested I use My Pretty Zombie’s Trepanation and Ten Three Labs’ That Goat Got Devil Eyes together. Both of them have pretty creepy names, so I really liked the idea of pairing them.

Trepanation look Both of the colors are pretty neutral, so I used purple liner as well.

For this I primed my eyes using a shimmery primer. I used a flat brush and applied Trepanation, a light brown with a greenish shift, all over my lids up slightly past my crease. I used a pencil brush to apply That Goat Got Devil Eyes, a dark grey with a bit of red shimmer, along my upper and lower lashlines. I also used it to deepen the outer corner and worked a little up into my crease as well. Then I lined my eyes with a dark purple pencil liner and smudged it out with a brush. I applied my face make up and mascara. I finished off with a light nude lipstick.

I really like this look. I used to be really bored by neutrals, but lately I’ve been enjoying them more and more. My light wasn’t cooperating when I took the pictures, but both of these colors have interesting shifts over a neutral base (green for Trepanation and red for That Goat…) which makes the look more interesting than it appears at first glance. If you wanted it to be more noticeable, I bet this would work really well over a sticky base.
