Come Play With Me: Mad About Mattes.

21 February 2014
I don't think I do enough makeup related stuff on this blog so when I saw Indie over at Indieana had decided to do a fortnightly interactive makeup challenge I figured it could be fun to play along.

The current challenge is 'mattes' so I whipped out all my matte stuff and came up with this:



I started with Urban Decay's Primer Potion and laid down a base of MAC Brule, on the middle third of the eyelid I applied Urban Decay's Naked and followed with UD's Buck on the outer third of the eye before blending to finish. Using Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Liner in Black Ink I heavily lined the upper and lower lash line and both water lines, after creating a flick I applied Flormar Matte Black over the liner and blended the lower lash line to smoke it out. I then attacked my brows with Australis Tint My Brow in Blonde and my upper and lower lashes with Benefit They're Real.



My lips were lined with Revlon Colourstay Lipliner in Raisin and finished with Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate in 112.

BAM MATTE FACE!

    1. hahaha thank you Lily! My gel liner is actually in need of being replaced so I struggled considerably with getting a crisp line, at one stage there was some cursing. I'll be sad to throw it away though because I love it so much!

    Mattes are incredibly glamorous, I think. Love the lips!

  5. Wow! You look exquisite! Your foundation and subtle contouring is perfect. Your application of gel liner is flawless. I love the simplicity of your eyeshadow combined with the boldness of the black eyeliner and the dark lipstick. I would love to see you do some more makeup looks, especially as you're so talented.

    1. Oh Petal! You have me blushing!! Thank you for the compliments, most of the time when I look at my makeup I just see all the flaws so it's especially nice when it's complimented :)
