Anyway, the rut rolls on. I am officially cutting myself off from neutral eyes and roseberry lips today, and hope to share some actually colourful looks in the coming week (mostly Fyrinnae, thanks to a suggestion from the lovely laitae). But if you'll bear with me, here are the last scrapings from this barrel, which do kind of chart a seasonal shift from how I like to play off the golden light of late summer/early autumn to the colder, crisper winter light filtering through now.
Also photographic evidence of how much I love my RBR matte eyeshadows.
FACE: Burberry concealer 01, Shu Uemura Nobara 584, RBR liquid bronzer, Shiseido High Beam White. RBR Florita blush.
EYE: Softly contoured with RBR Bashful Flamingo and Chestnut-Napped Apalis, and Unforgettable Oriole to highlight inner lower lashline. Addiction Lady of the Lake pencil to line. Curled lashes, no mascara.
LIP: Guerlain Rouge Automatique Samsara, a juicy ripened fig.
Actually I can date this to the 27th September i.e. the day after I saw Lisa Eldridge's Wide-Eyed 60s video, and threw together a very subtle uncostumey and falsies-less version for work. Even kept so understated I think the basic architecture of this look did really make me look a little more dollyishly wide-eyed, if not noticeably more leggy or supercool.
EYES: RBR Sweet Dust Seriema in socket and Grey Go-Away Lourie to line, with Blackpepper Jay to darken lash roots. A long-discontinued Shu Uemura IR Pink Rainbow 900P single (white with opalescent pink flash) over the lid. Fasio Ultra Curl Lock Volume mascara.
FACE: Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation 90, Burberry concealer 01, Kjaer Weiss Lovely cream blush (which camera subsequently ate).
LIPS: Guerlain Rouge Automatique Liu.
HAIR: very uneven job thanks to Schwarzkopf Perfect (ha!) Mousse 388 Red Velvet. STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND! Also somewhat perplexed as Schwarzkopf also manufacture the faultless Blythe Freshlight bubble dyes....
EYES: Chanel Notorious on its own. Yes it is just that shimmery on me, yes it does catch the light differently, looking more brown or more grey depending on the contours of my eye, no I have still not succumbed to its charms [have now returned it to the kind friend who let me play]. RBR automatic eye pencil Salome, GOSH white eye kohl, Armani ETK Waterproof mascara.
FACE: Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation 90, Illusionist Concealer 000, Aura Stain 209 Impulse.
LIPS: YSL Glossy Stain 24 Fuchsia Intemporel.
HAIR: Kao Prettia Antique Rose.
|y so blurry. sorry.|
PS recommendations for styling ideas and products very welcome i.e. sorely needed! Also, I am blogally obligated to buy a wardobe of wigs now, yes?
PPS the roseberry nail polish that's been rarely off my nails since a pal surprised me with it: Zoya Paloma. Sandwiched with Barry M 349 Rose Quartz, 351 Yellow Topaz, 352 Pink Sapphire and 354 Amethyst, and Models Own Dancing Queen.
