MAKEUP MOOD: SHOCK WAVE

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

This look is quite an advanced glam as I wanted to experiment with graphic eyeliner in combination with a statement lip also. A very vibrant, nod to the ’80s wearable look that I think will be perfect for any upcoming festive events this fall/winter or just to try out and have fun with creating.

I gave the base a more glass finish with a higher coverage foundation mixed in with an illuminating foundation. In contrast, I used a mixture of a matte red and matte pink liquid lipsticks to create a cherry-pink based hue on the lips and made the eyes more defined and diffused with a shimmery champagne/gold eyeshadow and black eyeliner (blended in with a black/brown eyeshadow) without losing the cat eye shape I wanted. Once I had my desired shape, I took the time to extend and carve out the liner as much as possible to break up the eyeshadows a bit and stand out more.

Inspired by Old Hollywood makeup artist, Whitey Snyder‘s eyelash shadow trick he was known to use on Hollywood Icon, Marilyn Monroe, you may also notice that I drew a line right underneath my eyeliner outwards to create a more 3D effect with my lashes (this is very optional). It was my first time trying out the infamous eyelash line trick but I think it worked out pretty well for this look. I’d love to know what you think of it in the comment section below…
