Illamasqua inspired look

When I was browsing through the Illamasqua home page, I instantly feel in love with their next photo.

Swatch: Illamasqua Noir collection

I took the picture as an inspiration and I tried to do my version of the Illamasqua Noir look. Of course my version is nothing compared to what you see above. But you know I’m not a make up artist and my eyes are way different from the ones the beautiful model has. Well … at least I tried. :angel:

I used tons of different things to create the look. Sorry, I can’t remember what I used, but I can tell you it was a lot. And there was a lot of blending involved. I know how important perfect eyebrows are, that’s why I tried really hard with them and I painted them very dark. I freaked out, when I looked in the mirror and saw almost black eyebrows.  :scared: Unfortunately I didn’t have any false eyelashes at home, when I was creating the look. I know that false eyelashes are almost a must when you do such a dark and dramatic make up. Well, I have to buy some and learn how to use them. :cute: Which false eyelashes are your favourite and why? I would really love to know. :rose:

OK, move on to the manicure I would wear to such a make up. I’m not completely sure, whether I would wear the very eye-catching and gorgeous China Glaze – Entourage

… or maybe I’d go with the half moon manicure …

  1. The emu and the nails are awesome though I love the green emu much more. Damn, this is hot! You did a great job in recreating it!!!

  2. Kot sem že rekla: noro lepo :wub:  res si professionalka za delanje Mu-jev :hmm:  bravo :bow: .-= Lyra´s last post … Essence: Into The Wild Trend Edition =-.

  3. In ta prispevek že z nestrpnostjo pričakujem. :nervous:
    OMG, Veruschke pa še nimam. Se tolažim z mislijo, da lahko sama kakšnega podobnega zelenega zmatiram.  :idea: .-= Mamy´s last post … Orly: Gumdrop and Snowcone from Sweet Collection and Mint Mojito =-.

  4. ta prispevek je prava poslastica zame!  Čudoviti zeleni odtenki, meni se zdi mejkap super! res mi je všeč.  sama bi izbrala zoya lakec, ne vem. zdi se mi da bi temnejši nohtki bolj šli zraven :nails: ( pa kakšen veeeelik prstan mogoče – jaz jih obožujem :happy: )
    poleg tega pa sem vesela, da so k nohtkom dodane namazane očke, oz. obratno.
    Masetra, maestralno! :wink:

    • Hvala, Neža! :rose: Izgleda, da bom morala večkrat pisati “kombinirane prispevke”.  :nails: + :lips: + nakit + … Vidim, da imamo kar nekaj bralcev, ki vas zanima make up in ne samo nohti. Super! Z veseljem vam ustrežem. Ko bi le imela več časa za pisanje in ustvarjanje … :hmm: Vsekakor se bom potrudila. :yes:

      Samo prišepnem, da že pišem prispevek tega look-a z odprtim očesom. :zip:
