Razzleberry Glamorous look with MakeupGeek (MUG) eyeshadows: for the brave-hearted

Hello again!

Although considered somewhat unwearable, red eyeshadows have really started to grow on me. Wearing a bright bold colour, such as red, on your eyelids is not for the feeble-hearted…because you WILL be seen, you WILL stand out, people WILL notice your makeup. But then again, why not?! Why neglect this beautiful colour for fear of the looks you will get throughout the day (some will approve and compliment you, others will frown upon it “oh look she has Sooo much makeup on!”) Who cares! As far as I am concerened, NO colour should be excluded for such trivial reasons…Now, if you happen not to like it, that’s another story.

…But how can anyone dislike Razzleberry? Let me introduce you to the MakeupGeek e/s Razzleberry:

Can you honestly tell me that you do not like it?! Can you be this cruel?! I guess not 😛 Red-pink e/s with gold shimmer…speaks for itself. Very rich and pigmented, easy to blend (although if you blend too much the gold shimmer disappears)…and oh so warm!

I paired Razlleberry with Glamorous and added some glitter 🙂

Rainbow and Fire

I don’t really spend all that much time on naming the makeup looks I come up with… And that’s not because I come up with brilliant names instantaneously. No no, I am simply too lazy and impatient. That could be a wrong strategy, after all, a catchy name gives the look somewhat of an additional layer of creativity. Hmm, I should perhaps change my strategy…

Anyway, today’s looks are called “Rainbow” and “Fire”. Not very original, I hear you! It’s just instant  association – my mind associates a certain image with e certain word, and once that happens, the name sort of sticks.

Rainbow doesn’t really consist of ALL the colours of the rainbow, but as it turned out pretty colourful, that was my first association. I really wanted to do something with green and pink, I think it is a beautiful combination :)…and that was the outcome:

I was very keen on using the Chartreuse (Ben Nye) pigment; it is such a lovely grass colour, not very dark..with a hint of yellow. Then I got really inspired to pair it up with the MUG eyeshadow Simply Marlena (gorgeous pink!)…and then I got so excited I couldn’t fall asleep for a while. Yes, I think about makeup before I fall asleep (or recipes for baking cakes for that matter, but that calls for a different blog post!). Sometimes, I even dream of it 🙂 Believe me, that is better, than dreaming about my PhD!

Hema eyeshadow base

Ben Nye pigment Chartreuse

MUG eyeshadow Simply Marlena

The second look, Fire, was also born last night (at least the idea for it). It combines yellow, orange and red/purple. It was mainly inspired by my idea to use the Barry M Dazzle Dust in Burnt Orange, splendid colour! That is how it turned out:

I had a lot of fun creating Rainbow and Fire today (and so did my husband, upon seeing me with two differently made up eyes :)). I hope you enjoy them too, and they inspire you to play with your makeup collection.

Have a great weekend!

Sleek looks :P

Did I actually tell you that the Sleek eye dust pigments are the only Sleek products I own? I have none of the i-Divine palettes in my possession…not a single one. “??!?!??!” You may ask “?!?!?” I don’t know..it just has not happened yet. I look at them, I see colours that I already own…some others I’d like to have…and I can never decide which palette I want. So basically, I am still thinking about it…Do you have a favourite Sleek i-Divine palette? Let me know in the comments please, I’d appreciate it!!!

Anyway, I wanted to try out the three eye dust pigments from Sleek which I showed you in my previous post. I wanted to use them all in one look, but given how similar Vintage and Green with Envy turned out to be on the lid, I changed my mind. I did, however, really want to combine Hypnotic with Vintage…Do you think I succeeded?

Then, on my other eye, I made sort of an autumn look…or at least that is the feeling I got when I looked at the final result in the mirror.
