Glowing embers

Hello everybody! :)

Now I've made so many wearable looks lately so it's time for something that most people wouldn't call wearable.

The inspiration for this look actually came from a look that I encountered on the fabulous makeup site the Makeupbee.
Here's the look I was inspired by:


It's an amazing look, but I didn't want to copy it 100% so I made my own version. :)

My skin is a disaster right now, but luckily it doesn't look to bad on the photos (at least not if you watch it from a distance...). I really need to find a better foundation but most foundations are not light enough. I'm thinking about trying Illamasqua Skin Base because it is possible to get it in a very light and even a white one. We don't have Illamasqua here in Sweden though, so I would have to order it from their website and wouldn't be too happy if it turned out to be a bad foundation for my skin...

I realized today that I feel very, very comfortable with black lipstick. Black lipstick can goth up practically any look. :) 

On the lid I'm wearing Shimma shimma by MakeupGeek, which is a gorgeous champagne color that would look awesome for a prom look. Since it's shimmery it's very easy to blend it with darker colors. 

A tip if you want darker brows but are afraid it will get too dark is to fill them in as usual with a color matching your natural brow color and then apply a black (tap off the brush to remove excess eyeshadow) on the "tail" of the brow, creating a gradient. 

In the future I intend to do more lip-looks. I usually don't spend too much money on lipsticks, since eye-makeup is more fun, but recently I've discovered that lip-looks can be fun as well. :)

  1. On the glowing embers look, would you be willing to do a step-by-step photo shoot?

  2. I might do that in the future. :) Right now I have several tutorials planned that I will do first, but after I've done them I will go back and do tutorials on some of my old looks.

  3. nice blog
