I don’t remember exactly what the inspiration for this look was but I’m in a very “dark makeup” kind of mood lately. I guess I wanted to lighten up the look a bit with Sugarpill Lumi but still, dark gloomy autumny look ahead!
When I was almost finished it was a blue and green look but I felt like I was missing something. I didn’t want to add even more green so I used the purple colour from my Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette.
I love the sparkly, shimmery colours in this look because even though the look is quite dark, you still notice all the colours in it because the shimmer and glitter reflect the colour. If this look would have been all matte it probably would have been way more boring. 🙂
For the lips I used one of my favourite Dior lipsticks. It’s almost empty and I can’t get it anymore because it was limited edition a looooong time ago. 😦
But it’s a pinkish brown colour with a gorgeous blue sheen to it. It perfectly suits the colours on the eyes.
I love how Lumi worked out great with Sugarpill Magpie. They are both such special blue pigments. At first I didn’t like the fact that Sugarpill Lumi is a bit transparent, but looking at the pictures now, I actually like that a lot. At least it’s different. 🙂
What do you think? You like this combination? Do you think the slightly transparent part on the inner corner where I applied Lumi or do you think it looks weird?
