So, on to my final look from Sunday. By now I was seriously running short on time and these pics are the best of about 8. I'll put this into context for you...I have been known to take getting on for 100 to get the look I want. My skills are improving but my skin isn't and my slap head, well that's not going anywhere. I did the fringe thing while I was at school and I'm not going back there. Fact of the matter is I wear a hat most of the time anyway light sensitive creature that I am and so it's not so noticeable as it is in these photos. However I wanted to share them because I loved the effect I got combining Illamasqua Solstice and the Sleek Bohemian palette, which I believe is only available until today. So get it while you can, I love this palette:)
Base: Smashbox Photo Finish Light
Face: a mixture of Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Foundation in Porcelain (too yellow) and Illamasqua rich liquid foundation in 145 too dark - approx 3:2 this didn't look bad at all....I got compliments while I was out anyway and I wouldn't, wearing either one alone!
Smashbox Camera Ready Concealer 2.0
Smashbox Halo in Fair
Brows: Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Enrapture
Lashes: Rimmel Sexy Curves
Shadow: Illamasqua cream shadow in Grace as a base
lower lashline and lid - Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Solstice
blended with Bohemian Palette - Gilt and a touch of Clover below the outer corner - for colour name see the ever lovely Lipglossiping who's names for the shadows in this palette were adopted by Sleek!
Cheeks - My very favourite blush from a smashbox highlighter quad with no name - I'll put a photo up sometime
Lips: a touch of BarryM Lip Laquer Crayon in Cherry Red
then a Models Prefer (QVC brand no longer available) lipstick in Riviera Rose
Wooowooowooo! I made it 3 posts in 3 days and I'm a happy bunny :D
