Monochrome-Pink on Pink
Saturday December 28th 2013 was a day all in attendance would never forget. The PurplelAbel events presented a Sweethearts Dinner and the hostess of the evening, featured above, asked me to do her makeup. I've known this woman for over 20 years and I happily agreed to give her a "beat" She wanted something soft but striking that would revolve around her new lipstick obsession: Beauty Brownie Cosmetics color Lighthouse available here.
This fuchsia purple was a great jumping off point for her monochromatic makeup.
Here is what I used
Milk of Magnesia
Black Radiance Liquid Foundation in Brownie
MAC Cosmetics concealer in NW45. I also used Covergirl Pressed powder to set the concealer to keep it from creasing
Filled in her brows with Ruby Kisses Eye Liner Gel in Brown
To make the colors pop, I used NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk as a base.
Inglot Cosmetics matte shadow in a pale pink and used Make Up Forever No. 92, a vibrant purple in her crease. I used a dark brown eye shadow to deepen the crease.
Tarte Cosmetics powder blush in Flushed
NYX lip liner in Prune and Beauty Brownie Lipstick in color Lighthouse
House of Lashes in Noir Fairy
Loreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
