Last Sunday, I went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday! We went to Love Machine which was billed to me as somewhat gay, but it was disappointingly not very gay. I did see my hairdresser there, though, so a bit, I suppose.
Obviously, my first priority when it comes to parties is what makeup I will wear.
Face: MAC Skin Base primer, Ben Nye cream stick foundation in Ivory, Ben Nye neutral set translucent powder, Illamasqua cream pigment in Hollow, NARS blush Orgasm
Eyes: Chanel Stylo Yeux waterproof eyeliner in Noir Intense, Urban Decay eyeshadow in Blackout, Gorgeous Cosmetics eyeshadow in Dusk Rose, Illamasqua liquid metal in Surge, Violet Voss glitter in Goldie, Sugarpill Baby Dewdrops lashes
Lips: Gorgeous Cosmetics lipstick in Whimsy
This was the first time I used any of the glitters that I ordered from Violet Voss a few weeks back! I was a bit surprised at the colour, because in the pot it’s a lot whiter, with just some gold sparkle to it, but that’s probably because I used a gold base as an adhesive. I’ll try a white base next time, and that should bring out the colour a bit better. I’m really pleased with the feel of the glitter though! It adheres so easily to anything, and is very finely milled. I have a few Kryolan glitters that are a lot more chunky – sometimes that’s exactly what you want, but this is a lot easier to work with! I’ve been using the pink ones I ordered over lipsticks to get glitter lips. It looks awesome, and weirdly a lot more subtle than it sounds. On the downside, you do end up swallowing a lot of glitter. They’re surprisingly tasty, though!
Oh yeah, and I dyed my hair blue. By some strange twist of fate, I actually like it even better than the pink, even though pink is by far a colour I like a lot more than blue. I think it might be because it provides a nice contrast to all the pink makeup I like to wear, rather than all of me being the same colour!
