I shared my version of Luxe Grunge outfit for the Mango 2011 Fall/Winter fashion show in my previous post. Now, here’s my look on that day.
I believe, makeup should be part of our over-all look. You may have the nicest clothes on earth, but if you’re looking haggard, FAIL! I’m not saying to do a full makeup all the time. Even a fresh no-makeup look would do. If you have the perfect skin, just brush on some powder to keep you oil-free. We put time and effort in choosing the clothes we wear everyday. Makeup should be part of it. After all, it’s part of the outfit.
For events and night outs, I make sure my face stays matte throughout the night. I want minimal retouch as much as possible. I don’t want to lock myself inside the powder room and miss the rest of the event just because I need to retouch. LOL! I have very oily skin so in such occasions, I use matte foundation and loose powder.
Since I went for safe colors- black, white and gray (as seen in my Luxe Grunge post), I thought of giving life to my outfit through my eyes. It’s bright, but subtle-kind of brightness. I should have done smoky eyes for a grunge look, but I told you, it’s my version of “luxe grunge”. Hehe! I don’t want to be dark from head to toe, so for my eyes- yellow, pink, purple and green it is! I used yellow all over my lids, pink on my crease and dark purple on the outer-v. For my lower lash line, I used green, then dark purple on the outer corner. To brighten up my eyes, I used white eyeliner on my waterline and white eyeshadow on the inner corner of my eyes. To finish of the look, I lined a black gel eyeliner on my upper lashine, curled my lashes, and mascara, mascara, mascara!!!
Lastly, I used a pale lipstick to at least compensate my colorful eyes. Hehe!
