May FOTD Challenge: Geisha

I had a lot of fun doing this look for Sara May‘s May FOTD Challenge series. Check out her blog for her Challenge FOTDs (which are both inspiring and very humbling for me).

Then I applied more lippy… I realise now I prefer the first image….

When I first saw the gorgeous Inglot Matte 382 (a vibrant reddish pink) I bought it because it reminded me of Geisha makeup (which I absolutely LOVE). I knew it would come in handy! Like all Inglot shadows that I own, it is very pigmented but applies like silk and blends like a dream- so it can easily be used as a blusher.

And of course, I must mention that the Ellis Faas creamy lips in Ellis Red (L101) is a red lipstick lover’s wet dream. TMI?

Makeup breakdown:

-NARS Smudgeproof eye shadow base
– Inglot e/s 382 (matte reddish pink) on lids and temples ( see review/swatches here )
– Bobbi Brown gel eye liner black
– Smashbox single eye shadow ‘champagne’ on inner third of top lid, and inner corners.
– MAC Carbon for brows

– MAC Mylar e/s (I scraped some off and used a powder brush to apply to my face, mostly in the centre)
– NARS Sheer Glow ‘Fiji’
– Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L101 to draw dots above eyebrows.

– NARS Sheer Glow ‘Fiji’ to erase lips
– Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L101 (Ellis Red) drawn in exaggerated pucker
– MAC pigmented ‘Jardin Aires’ highlight cupid’s bow.

On Tuesday I did the ‘Rock Chic’ challenge, and coming up we have ‘Crazy Cat Lady’, ‘Cleopatra’, ‘Pin Up’, ‘Bold Lips’ and lots more so stay tuned!
