Sometimes I don’t know what colours work for me until I’ve seen myself in a photo wearing said colour, this is the case with this nude lipstick. I got it as a free gift with purchase and always loved it but never worn it since I figured it didn’t suit me. But now, I like it!
As for the look, I’ve always dreamed of working in a fashion house, whether for a fashion designer or fashion magazine (what beauty blogger doesn’t think this!?) and so I thought this would be a fun look to play with. I can’t remember which Korean band I saw rock eyes similar to this, but I thought it would be fun and “fierce” *flips hair*… lol
The more I stare at the photos, the more I think the two wings are not exactly the same. They probably aren’t, and honestly it’s crazy hard to get them perfectly the same too! Just gotta keep practicing!

Nothing new here, primer, foundation, concealer then powder. Take a bronze to help contour your features, such as cheek hollows, sides of nose, temples and chin. Then take a beige blush to your cheeks, and finish off with a shimmery highlighter.
After primer, I applied a silver shimmery eye shadow to the to my lids. Take a matte white eye shadow to the inner corners of your eyes and directly under your lower lash line.
Now take a black gel liner to draw the winged eye look as shown in the photos. Go slow with this, even after all my makeup experience I still had to do this step twice to get the right shape. I used the shape of my eyes as a guide, be prepare to step back and look at your face as a whole to see if they are as you want them to appear.
Then with a black pencil liner blend the colour into the silver eye shadow. Line your upper lash line and waterline. At this point you may need to take some silver shadow to blend into the black liner, just work with it till you achieve the desired result.
Take a glitter gel and apply directly to your lids, then while still wet apply pearl glitter. I tend to use glitter gel than lip gloss since it is lighter and less prone to creasing.
Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara. Apply your false lashes.
Take a black eyeshadow and heavily shape your eye brows. I wanted a strong look here, finally set with a clear brow gel. Then take a tiny bit and apply to your lower lash line.
Apply a nude lipstick and top with a nude lip gloss.
