Currently sitting on a tram in Melbourne and about to meet with some lovely Melbourne bloggers for lunch. I’ve been here since Wednesday for a mini holiday with le bf, and to start apartment hunting. God I love this place.
Anyway, I thought I would share a bronzey eye + red lip makeup look which I drafted before the trip. This look mostly uses products from the Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism collection, which I reviewed in my last post. This was what I was wearing in my (very first) youtube video.
- Lancome Teinte Idol Ultra foundation
- Two Faced Shadow Insurance to prime
- MUFE Waterproof HD Brow corrector to fill in brows. (see my youtube demo here)
- ‘Vintage’ eyeshadow from the Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Neutral Palette (swatched here) blended all over mobile to to crease, and smudged below bottom lashline.
- ‘Buck’ eyeshadow from Urban Decay Naked Palette to blend out harsh lines above crease. (swatched here)
- ‘Wolf’ eyeshadow from the Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Neutral Palette blended on mobile lid on top of Vintage, stopping before the crease. I also applied this on half of the bottom lashline closest to the inner corner.
- ‘Obsidian’ eyeshadow from the Neutral Palette to darken outer third of upper and lower lids.
- MAC Blacktrack Fluidline on waterline and top lashline.
- ‘Sin’ eyeshadow from Urban Decay Naked palette to highlight inner corners of the eyes.
- Illamasqua Androgen Cream pigment blended into apples.
- MAC Golden Bronzer to contour
- Illamasqua ‘Vintage’ eyeshadow from the Neutral Palette to deepen contour (yup you read right).
- MAC Cherry Lip Pencil to define
- Illamasqua Box lipstick
I apologize for the radio silence the last few days. I didn’t bring my laptop this trip but will get back home on Tuesday night.Posted by myfunnyvalentine on Apr 28th, 2012 in FOTD, Illamasqua | 47251 commentBronze+smoky+eye+and+red+lips%3A+a+Human+Fundamentalism+FOTD2012-04-28+03%3A12%3A30myfunnyvalentinehttp%3A%2F%2Fmyfunnyvalentineblog.com%2F%3Fp%3D4725
“Human Fundamentalism is the unique spirit and fundamental human drive for individuality. It’s a belief, a movement and an emotion. A connection with the spirit of the age and its global motifs. You are your own human hybrid, a unique nomad of street cultures and global trends.” Alex Box
The Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless collection was a hard one to top, but as usual Illamasqua has done it again. I was very lucky to be sent a selection of the Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism collection to review.
What a collection! If you haven’t seen the breathtaking promo images from this collection, I highly suggest that you take a look at www.illamasqua.com.
The Neutral Palette includes…
Stealth is a matte warm white that applies quite sheerly. Not a colour I can see myself using very often.
Vintage is a matte dark chocolate brown, that is fairly pigmented and blends easily. Quite similar in colour to MAC Mystery eyeshadow, but has a silkier texture than Mystery.
Obsidian is a matte black, and my new favourite black eyeshadow. It’s the darkest/most pigmented black I own, and blends beautifully (unlike MAC Carbon, which is a chalky, patchy mess).
Wolf is an antique gold with an olive undertone. It’s not super frosty or metallic but has a gorgeous satiny shimmer. It’s pigmented, buttery smooth, and such a versatile colour.
price: $78 AUD
Scribe Precision Ink is a stark white eye liner, which is completely opaque in 2 layers and resembles white correction fluid.
I. LOVE. THIS.
Not something that I would use every day, but it’s great for an editorial type look, or if you want to create a look that’s a little bit dramatic/raving mad. Like below.
Price: $43.50 AUD

Escape from the ordinary with the Lost Weekend Palette. This limited edition 3-hole eye colour palette washes eyes in earthy tones of nude, fawn and tan, in a combination of velvet matte and soft shimmer formulas.
Availability: David Jones , www.beccacosmetics.com
After seeing this review on Modesty Brown on the Becca Lost Weekend Palette late last year, I was intrigued by this palette- particularly the colour ‘Moire’ , because I have a weakness for dusty rose browns. I finally caved and purchased the Lost Weekend Palette a couple of months ago.
- Chino :
A matte wheat beige, which is very similar to my skin tone. Applied all over my lid it brightens it slightly, but is otherwise almost invisible.
A matte golden brown, and the most pigmented out of the three. It’s like a slightly darker version of MAC Cork, but has a much nicer texture. Buttery soft, silky, and looks wonderful on the eyes.
A satin/soft shimmer rosey fawn brown that gives me a sort of flushed ‘English Rose’ type look (which I’m very fond of). The colour is perfection, and the texture is silky, but a little too sheer for my liking.
Overall I still think this palette is something special and would suit paler skin tones, but I’m a little disappointed in the pigmentation of the two lighter colours. I’m having a blog sale reload, and am really agonizing over whether or not to list the Lost Weekend Palette.
