What I discovered from the very first post is that I have really crappy lighting conditions for photographing makeup. That or I really need to play with my camera settings, but as far as I played tonight, I didn't really get anything better than this. The bathroom lighting just makes all of my pictures have a reddish hue to them and using flash washes everything out. Bah.
I altered the pictures below so they would at least look decent. (I don't alter my nail pictures aside from cropping them.)
Jordana - Perfect Team black and white shadows
Wet n Wild - Spoiled Brat black shadow
Markwins - unnamed cream shadow (came in a large makeup pack, only labeled Markwins on back)
Kiss Luxury Eye Liner - Classic Black
Kiss i-ENVY mascara - Very Black
I was inspired for this look by the Illamasqua SOPHIE-I technique that they have on their site.
This is definitely not something I would wear for going out all the time unless I got used to the really dramatic eye looks. Because I wear glasses, I generally just swipe a single color on my lids and use mascara and eye liner for any makeup I'm doing. But this was definitely fun to do - as you may know from some of my older posts, I took a theater makeup class while I was in college and really enjoyed it. This was a nice little throwback for me doing something really dramatic.
Also, my eyebrows look crazy. They're one of the things I wish that I could change most about my face. I'm just not that good at shaping them myself. :/
I hope you enjoyed this little experiment in makeup!
And here are the other ladies' makeup looks for today!
