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:

  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:

  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:

  5. Najlepša hvala za lepe komplimente! :rose: Da poskusim odgovoriti na tvoje vprašanje glede temno zelene senčke. Če misliš na senčko v creas-u in malenkost v zunanjem delu očesa – gre za miks – spodaj Sweetscents Jade (fantastična zelena) in nato čez za potemnitev na določenih mestih Sweetscents Fancy + čisto v crease mat temno siva senčka (pigmentek), katere ime mi je neznano. Upam, da sem si vse prav zapomnila. :nervous:

    Half moon sem dejansko izbrala zaradi Illamasque kot take. ker gre k celotni njihovi podobi. ;) Tvoja ideja je fantastična in bi verjetno krasno izpadlo, a žal nimam Rampage laka. Morda preizkusim s kakšnim vsaj približno podobnim. :nails:

    Bom med fotkami pogledala, ali lahko iz kakšne fotke z odprtimi očmi kaj naredim. Resnično sem izgledala na fotkah kot albino zajec z rdečimi očmi. :cry:

  6. O, tole pa je prelepo! :stars: Komplimenti za fantastičen make up! Bi lahko prosim zvedela vsaj za glavno, temno zeleno senčko, čigava je, kje si lahko naredim zaloge? :) Ali si ustvarila tako popolnost iz večih senčil? Res noro lepo! Sicer pa, čisto za moj okus, spodnja manikura bolj paše k Illamasquini posebnosti, če gledam na to, da je make up ustvarjen po njenem navdihu. Morda bi le half moon spremenila, ker mi tale CG sploh ni všeč (čeprav obožujem zeleno), in kombinirala Veruschko z Illamasquino Rampage, da bi bilo v stilu. :))  Sicer pa super, še enkrat, kar onemela sem ob očeh. Bi pa tudi jaz zelo rada videla še sliko z odprtimi očkami. :)

  7. Tudi jaz glasujem za samo Veruschko. MU je pa :thumb:

  8. veruschko :wub: joj kak je lep, ta lak :stars:

  9. Valjde, spet je treba vse pohvaliti. Ampak imam pa nekaj pripomb!
    Pogrešam sliko  :yes: z odprtim učom! Pa jaz bi imela samo Veruschka  :hmm:

  10. Predivno :D obožavam zeleno na očima!

  11. Lepo! Meni bi bilo še lepše, če bi na nohtih uporabila samo Zoyo (brez dodatkov). :)

  12. Nična? Tvoja verzija je čudovita!

  13. I love the colors you used for MU. :wub:

    Entourage – khm – not my style. :whistle:
