Today is an excuse to pile as much red on my face as possible. I thought I’d share the resulting look. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chinese culture, more red = more luck/prosperity/health/higherGPA (wait… what!?)
I started with my eyes, primer first as always (Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish). You can’t see it on my weird half mono lids but I put down a layer of The Body Shop’s color surge eyeshadow in Golden Cinnamon up to my crease. I followed with a few stokes of Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in shade 8, painting a thick-ish cat eye on my upper lash line (with an arced liner brush).
The only product on my lips is OCC’ s Colour Cosmetic Pencil in NSFW. It’s so nice in every way, I hope to get the review of NSFW and its siblings done soon. I have 6 colors to test. Blegh.
After my lips were done, I cleaned up edges with some makeup remover, sharpened the edges with concealer, and followed with my foundation routine.
Lastly I used Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow in ME-744 Poppy (review here) as blush. Poppy is an intense, vibrant orange-based red straight or of the pan. As you can tell (hopefully), I applied it quite sparingly. My skin is already yellow-toned. Had I not diffused Poppy out, I could probably pass for Pikachu.
Anyhow, Happy Sheepy Year!
