TAG I Goth You Babe: Smells Black Magic – Black Smokey eye

black smokey eye kat von d shade light palette
 Everyone has a dark side, and I know I explored mine thoroughly in previous years. Ranging from mohawk haircuts when I was 16, to wearing all black all the time and wearing the dreadful black kohl in my waterline. Good years. I have grown out of it slowly and gradually now, but in never really goes away. So I was extremely excited when I found the I Goth You Tag from Cosmetic Mind and decided to participate immediately. The first episode of this tag is dedicate to The goth shade BLACK and what better homage to it than a black smokey eye.

I’m a bit late but here is the fourth episode of the Paciugopedia3 by Beautybats. In this series we try to reproduce or give our own interpretation of looks by other beauty bloggers/vloggers. If you missed the previous episodes you can find them here. For the month of January, the chosen look is a warm toned and red smokey liner by Kamilcia that you can see in the top left quadrant of the collage above. I love this look for the use of red eyeshadow, which is my favorite color to wear as makeup.

Paciugopedia3 #2: Plum smokey eye with a silver pop

Welcome back to the second appointment with the Paciugopedia3 initiated by Beautybats, where a bunch of beauty addicted attempt to reproduce and reinterpret looks from famous makeup artists and beauty bloggers. Last month was time for a colourful green and purple look that you can find here, and for November the look is this intense plum smokey eye by the instagrammer @makeupby_ev21.

The biggest challenge I found was finding the right shade for the lid. I had multiple alternatives like Mimesis by Nabla or the Plum shade in the Lorac Pro 2 palette, but in the end I went with the Kiko Colour-Up Long Lasting Eyeshadow Crayon n.33 from the Daring Game collection. It made application and blending a bit of a nightmare because it set really quickly and after an hour my oily lids had it crease all over the place. Oh what we do for a good Paciugo (lol).

The sharp lines of the wings were only possible thanks to the “tape trick”. Now to be honest here, placing the tapes down symmetrically was a challenge, especially since my eyes are not symmetrical at all.

The original look called for a glossy baby pink lips, which is really not me. I don’t own any color like that, or any lipgloss for that matter, so I tried by using Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in 903c Just Peachy. Well, that didn’t really work for me so I folded back to my latest obsession MAC Instigator to finish up the look. Dark eyes, dark lips, I was in makeup heaven!

Products used:

Face:

  • L’Oréal Infallible 24h matte foundation in 20 Sand
  • MAC Blot Powder in Medium
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Light/Medium

Brows and Lips:

I am so glad I got to try to do this look and play with blending cream and powder textures together. 

Now if you made it throught my whole blabbing tell me, which lip choice do you prefer? Dark or light?

Rock chick FOTD for Halloween

halloween makeup rock chic
Happy Saturday beauties!
Did you enjoy Halloween last night? I had an amazing time playing with my band Whatever Alice Said. Being on stage is such an amazing feeling, I can never get enough! Another great thing about being on stage with a rock band is that I can go heavy and crazy with my makeup, the bigger and the darker, the better! So here is what I came up with yesterday, a dark burgundy and black smokey eye with dramatic winger liner and dark red and black lips.

The fall brown and gold smokey eye

brown and gold fall smokey eye
Good morning beauties!! Welcome to October! I am so excited for the season change and being able to charge up makeup with darker colors that now I can wear during the day without having people turn around looking at me weird. Yay Fall!! Another small change I’m excited about for Fall is the color brown: quite common for me in makeup, but fashion?! In the colder months I’m a black on black with the occasional dark color here and there, but never brown. So I’m excited that I found some bits I love in brown that will go great with my beloved brown boots (I raved about them here), and this means I get to wear gold jewelry as well!
