Fire Eyes

Hi Bellas,

I was surfing through you tube and came upon this hot tutorial! I love gaining inspiration from others because sometimes I get bored with my own creations and get really excited when I see what others come up with.

If you haven't heard of xxsgtigressxx she's freaking awesome! She does bold and beautiful eye makeup and isn't afraid to be crazy with it. I love it! Here's the link to the tutorial she did recently called Eyes on Fire.


I recreated the look on my roomy Melissa. She likes when I experiment on her and I love that I have a willing participant to practice on :) I think she wants to step out of her neutral makeup box into the world of funky makeup, yay! She has a more fair complexion so colors really pop on her.

Take a look at my version of this look. I added a really cool lightning bolt on the side of her face with a gradient type effect. I told her she could totally be a super hero with this makeup...not really your everyday wear, lol. But it's fun to play! I also did the tape trick on her to make the cool extreme angled shape on her eyes.

Here's what I used (All MAC unless otherwise stated):
EYES
-corn shadestick
-golden lemon pigment
-rule e/s
-mi'lady mineralized eyeshadow - red side
-nylon e/s
-fluidline in blacktrack
-max factor mascara
-tape
-spiked brown pencil

FACE
-cinema secrets concealer
-mineralized satinfinish foundation
-camera ready cosmetics transulcent powder
-drizzlegold beauty powder
-sculpt and shape duo in lightsweep and shadester
-camera ready cosmetics peach blush

LIPS
-revlon colorstay red lipliner
-dubonnet lipstick
-clear gloss from Rimmel

After
