I was doing my regular you tube surfing and came upon Scandalous Beauty's Billy B Contest. The winner is selected by Billy B and Erin and wins a set of Billy's Makeup brushes! These brushes look absolutely fab! We were directed to Billy B's Website to look at his portfolio for inspiration. This man has done makeup for everyone from Beyonce, to Pamela Anderson, to Missy Elliott, to Sharon Stone...everyone you can think of! There are so many drop dead gorgeous looks...very very pretty. However, I wanted to try something out there!
I saw this picture below and it was one of the brightest looks in his port. Talk about edgy makeup!
I decided to try to recreate the look with products I have at home. It took a couple of tries to get those lashes right! I ended up applying the lashes and then painting a mix of clear duo lash glue and yellow pigment on the tips. The glue helped to separate and spike the lashes as well as keep the pigment from wearing off. The other key thing about this look is to create a Joker type lip by drawing outside your lipline.
Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise specified):
-MUFE HD Foundation
-Trucco cream highlighter
-eyebrow pencil in spiked
-lucky jade shadestick
-fascinating eye kohl
-smolder eye kohl
-elise lashes on top
-ardell lashes on bottom
-duo lash glue mixed with primary yellow pigment to paint the lash tips
-Black Opal black plum lipliner
And a quick video showing you how I did the look:
Even if I don't win I had so much fun doing this. It's great to try new things and push past your comfort zone.
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
