My goal was to use only pigments for this look. I got close – I was too lazy and frustrated with fallout to find a pigment for a highlight color so I grabbed Sugarshot which was sitting right there on my counter. I’m gonna do a black and gold smokey look tomorrow (for my dear reader Rachael who requested it!). I haven’t decided if I’ll use yellow-type gold or more gold (bronze) gold. Hmmmm Black Ore solar bits maybe? Perhaps…you’ll have to wait and see!! :-)
For this look I used:
- Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Cash Flow PP (base), Deep Blue Green Pigment (all over lid), Vintage Gold Pigment (crease), Golden Lemon Pigment (upper lid), Sugarshot (highlight), Mystery Kohl Power (liner), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
- Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Flame Shimmer Blush
- Lips: Chanel Monte Carlo Aqualumier lipstick + YSL Golden Gloss #7
