The colours in question:
2. dark brown from Visée Glam Glow Eyes BR-7 Bitter Brown (LE Holiday 2011)
3. Rouge Bunny Rouge Bohemian Waxwing
4a. Chanel Vision Illusion D'Ombre
4b. goldenrod from KATE Deep-Trap Eyes GR-1 (discontinued)
5. palest ivory satin from the same KATE quint
I mixed (4a) and (4b) to get an approximation of the rich Suqqu gold, and layered (2) over black liquid liner (KATE Super Sharp S) for a blackened, cooler brown.
Ivory as base and subtle inner corner highlight; golds mixed all over the lid and in centre of the lower lashline; mauve-taupe through the outer v and socket; brown-over-black to line, extended straight out. Maybelline Rocket WP mascara.
As this collection, and this quad in particular, riffs on traditional geisha makeup and unexpectedly beautiful kimono colour combinations, I also opted for a not-too-literal and not-at-all-precise geisha-inflected rounded placement of the pink at the outer corners.
(a slight modification, with more Bohemian Waxwing blended up and in to the inner brow)
Still on that geisha riff thing: matte base with Shu Uemura Nobara stick 584, lacquered red lips by mixing Suqqu Creamy Rouge 18 Karakurenai with RBR's honey-toned Kiss Elixir balm. Light sweep of RBR Gracilis blush and Shiseido High Beam White highlighting centre of face.
Usual brows (Suqqu brow pen 02) and concealer (Burberry 01).
Anyone else go stash-diving to recreate your favourite looks or products this new season? I'd love to hear/see!
