A bit of fun (and absolutely no originality)

A friend wrote that it was a pity Addiction Revenge powder blush wasn't as multipurpose as the cheekstick, as she preferred its pink tinge. So I present: Revenge powder blush as eyeshadow!

The entire look was shamelessly -- shamelessly -- lifted wholesale from Lisa Eldridge's latest video.

All pics in artificial light without flash because I expected it to be hideous but it ended up being surprisingly bloggable. Sorry for the weird angles -- I was circling my brightest lightbulb like a particularly vapid moth.

Still, the front view shows it's never going to be the most flattering look on my asymmetrical eyes. Unless you lovely readers should have some advice...?

Addiction Revenge powder blush on eyes and (very lightly) on cheeks
KATE gel liner BK-1
Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Fatal Blacks Waterproof mascara
Lips are a mix of Guerlain Rouge G Girly and Sonia Rykiel Sublime 02
Lunasol Undereye concealer 00
Nars Sheer Glow Siberia (man, this is yellow. I always forget that.)


  1. will you hate me when I say - I LOVE IT! OMG, you should be in biteki for sure! amazing! <3 <3 <3

  2. Very Kabuki-esque! This will only work on beautiful pale skin like yours!

  3. You look great in practically all colors. And I wouldn't have noticed any asymmetry if you hadn't pointed it out, but I suppose that's why eyeliner is so exalted in Asian makeup, because it has the power to shift the shape of the eyes, so maybe it's just a matter of tweaks?

  4. Very bold and fun! So unexpected :D I think I love it <3

  5. Thanks guys!

    Jamilla: the grass is always greener! I always wish I could pull off the looks on Makeupandbeautyblog :)

    Dain: Sadly I have to do the classic eyeliner-ALL-over-lid thing on my left eye to make it match my right. And then strive not to blink. Stupid British slacker upbringing ruining my innate Azn powers of dedication....
