Mizzworthy's Illamasqua inspired contest


As you all know I love my dramatic makeup! When I saw Jenny's contest I thought it would be really fun to do a look inspired by a MAC picture I have been eyeing up for a while and think is beautiful and creative. This contest is about unleashing your alter ego, so I had to do something super editorial and bold with mile long lashes and heavy contouring.

Here is my inspiration:Unfortunately I did not have the right colours. For the life of me I could not find a yellow that was vibrant and ended up using a cheap yellow from a pallete I got from ebay. I packed on lots of it, but still it does not compare to the one in the original image :(. Also for the crease colour I used the pencil technique (check out Nireyna) and fig 1 eyeshadow. Being matte it was a total nightmare to blend and ended up looking patchy. Not my best work, but I thought I would post it anyway as I had fun doing it :)!
I used:

Face:
MUFE HD
MUFE lift concealer
MAC MSF natural in medium

eyes:
black L'ancome khol for pencil technique in crease
Fig 1., carbon, print, silly goose, bottle green, gesso, vapour e/s (all matte as there is no shimmer in the photo)
purple, yellow and cream from ebay pallete
Blacktrack fluidline
L'oreal voluminous mascara
red cherry lashes

cheeks:
Well dressed, tippy and full fuchsia blush from MAC

lips:
barry m lipliner (the really milky pink one)
barry m 100
MAC snob
MAC trifle lipglass
I think Maxie was scared of me.. hehe.

  2. Wow, amazing job! The yellow looks really bright. The only reason why you couldn't get yours to look as bright as the photo's is because her eyeshadow has been digitally enhanced so I reckon it's virtually impossible to get it like that. Love the hair too - absolutely fabulous darling!
