FANTASY GEISHA make up look
I got the inspiration for this look while listening to "Princess of China" by Coldplay and Rihanna, one of my favourite songs <3
I used L'Oreal Lumi Magique (True Match Lumi) foundation in W3/D3 Gold Linen which is my everyday foundation, mixed with L'Oreal True Match foundation in N1 Soft Ivory to make it lighter.
I applied it with my Real Techniques stippling brush for a flawless and perfectly blended finish.
Clinique Line Smoothing concealer in 02 Light, both on my face and under my eyes.
Under the inner part of my eyebrows I dusted Washed Ashore (matte apricot colour) from the Sleek Monaco palette mixed with Sleek Aruba blush (matte neon orange).
This helped give my eyes dimension while using an unusual colour that would fit this look.
I lined my upper lashline with Le Rose de Versailles eyeliner from Creer Beaute, a Japanese brand.
I love this eyeliner for its exceptionally thin and precise brush, perfect to line the inner corner of the eye.
Under my eyes I created a very thick line using the matte black eyeshadow from the Sleek Original palette, and I lined my waterline with Pupa True Kohl eyepencil in 01 (black).
Around the outer part of my eyes I dusted Washed Ashore mixed with Magenta Madness (matte magenta) again from the Sleek Monaco Palette, and I brought it down outwards and towards my cheekbones.
I finished off the eyes with Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara.
On the apples of my cheeks I applied Sleek Santorini blush (matte neon fuchsia/magenta).
On my lips, I first of all applied the concealer all over to blank them out. Then I created that peculiar square shape using Maybelline Superstay Lip Liner in 46 Red and NYC Expert Last Lip Colour lipstick in 432 Red Rapture.
I wasn't too sure about the finished look at first, but it has grown on me and now I love it :)
I hope you will like it too, thank you for coming to see me <3 :-*
