On The Scene

A few days ago Chic Rock asked me if I could give her tip for a eye make up with a matte white eye shadow.

This is what I came up with:




Stark white eye shadow is always a bit hard to combine because it doesn't look very natural. It's better for bold looks, but I tried to stay a little less bold than I usually would.

I applied MAC "Gesso" on the whole lid, then I used MAC "Scene"  in the crease. You would want to apply it stronger on the outer part of the crease, then go lighter on the inside. Then I applied "Scene"  in the outer part of the lower lid, that way your eye make up will look smokier. With a soft brus, dip into "Gesso" e/s again & then blend "Scene" & "Gesso" together so that all harsh edges disappear.
Line with a dark eye shadow or eye kohl (I chose MAC "Carbon" e/s) to give defintion to your eyes.
On my cheeks I used MAC "Hipness" blush & on my lips I applied MAC "Gotta Dash" Sheen Supreme lipstick.

A polish that would go very well with this look is Essie "Smokin' Hot":



It's rather thick, but dries quickly - 2 coats are all you need & application was flawless.

Hope I could help a bit & that you like it ;-)

  7. karo, Dabkeschön, Du Liebe :-) Natürlich mach ich mit, muß aber bis zum Wochenende warten (ist ja eh schon morgen dann *gg*).

    Fashionable Rose, Thank you, hun :-) I'm looking forward to you rocking the Dior polish!

    Belle, *lol* An solchen Farben kann ich ja nicht vorbeigehen :-D Leider muß ich sagen, so dolle ist der nicht: Der setzt sich total in den Lippenfältchen ab, so ein Problem hatte ich noch nie. Eine Chance geb ich ihm noch, sonst muß ich ihn leider an Douglas zurückschicken.
    Also teste lieber, wenn irgendwie möglich. Nicht, daß er bei Dir auch so rumzickt. Ich hab noch den "Full Speed", bei dem hab ich keine Probleme.

    The white cabbage, Thank you!

    Chic Rock, Thank you, I'm happy I could help :-) You could also use a lighter grey or green shade to get a softer look.

  44. Beautiful makeup! You always make it look so easy and effortless! One of these days, when I gather the courage, I am going to buy makeup and practice these looks! And if they turn out good, I will definitely send you a pic. :)

    And I'm sorry about your friend you mentioned the other day. How awful! It is so sad when people spiral so out of control and don't seem to care about themselves anymore. :(

    I don't blame you for not joining FB either. There are many people who have found me via the site who I would rather have no contact with. It has been the source of some distress for several years now. But it is such a GREAT way for me to stay in touch with long-distance friends and my family...so I can't seem to get rid of it!

  66. Your eyes look so amazing but I just can't wear that much makeup! I have really delicate features and sometimes even too much eyeliner makes me look strange... I stick to coloured pencils and draw a line over my top eyelashes and fill in with mascara. Then a tiny thin line of kohl on my bottom lashes :)

  68. that looks really lovely - i like the way you have blended the colours together to avoid patches and to continue with the natural shape and colouring of the eye lid.

    in response to your comment, you really should read the book, it's fantastic.

  70. I really like the irredescent look of your eyeshadow! It reminds me of an ice princess or something. Your nails are always so flawless. I just can't be bothered. It seems too much like work, lol. I really am coming around to black nail polish, though. It's no longer just for goths. I think I may have to purchase a bottle.
