The entire lip is first coated in a layer of HD Cream Liner (ebony) mixed with HD Cream Liner (cacao) creating a deep obsidian. The lip line is defined with a fine brush before Supracolor 8 ml (095) is pressed into the center of the lips, resulting in a high-impact ombré effect. Glamour Sparks (noble sparks) are lightly pressed into the center with the finger adding a reflective finish. Finally, a glaze of High Gloss (crystal rose) is smeared over the complete design to add a super gloss finish. The cheeks are rouged with colorings of Himalayan Salt with Eye Shadow Matt (candy).
In this dark fantastical trend the eyes are dressed with an unusual pairing of orange and green ochre. Before the application of the striking pairing of orange and green ochre, a layer of Eye Shadow Matt (SM) is blended into the socket line and met with a blended wash of Eye Shadow Matt (moss) from the inner corner. The defused powdery tones create the perfect contrast once the creamy texture of High Gloss (crystal rose) mixed with Supracolor 8 ml (079) and Supracolor 8 ml (607) are placed over the complementary pigments. The result is the softly smoked alternative of this mystical fantasy.
An exaggerated cupid’s bow is key as well as a defined lip line, Contour Pencil (513) provides this definition in the complementing lavender tones of this trend. Metallic fluids are important, representing this are Holographic Pigments in Holographic Pigments (solar), Holographic Pigments (parrot), and Holographic Pigments (atmosphere) blended with a mixture of High Gloss (crystal rose) and a hint of Shimmering Event Foundation (silver) for the metallic vibe. This formula is then coated thickly over the entire lip creating an otherworldly metallic gloss.
Embracing wintery tones with injections of lighter warm tones, HD Cream Liner (aubergine) is first applied over the eyelid. Pure Pigments (pure courage) are mixed with a touch of Eye Shadow Matt (deep black), that has been scrapped from the compact and crushed into a loose powder. This concoction is then buffed into the eyelid and frames the bottom lash line. Polyester Glimmer in Polyester Glimmer fine (pastel red) and Polyester Glimmer fine (maroon) in both Coarse and Fine are emerged in Multi Gel 10 ml, clear and dabbed into the inner corners of the eye up to the brows in a haphazard, playful application.
The intensity of the deep bordeaux is created by applying Lip Stain (ska). Using a flat, rounded brush to densely apply the rich fluid. Precision is key, the lip line is well defined resulting in a full, matt impression. The cupid’s bow is enhanced by adding Holographic Pigments (kaleidoscope) teamed with HD Living Color (amethyst) which is carefully pressed into the top lip line, creating a metallic impression. Skin is perfected with lightweight Shimmering Event Foundation (amber) and a sheer layer of Ultra Foundation 15 g for a post-workout glow.
In this look vibrant, fruity tones are blended all over the eyelid in the form of Viva Brilliant Color (orange). The pigment is blended through the socket line up to the brow bone and diffused to create a daring smokey eye. While the orange takes center stage, the cool concrete grey of HD Cream Liner (state grey) is blended underneath the bottom lash line and softened by adding Eye Shadow Matt (stone) over the application. Pure Pigments Metallic (pure gold) is placed in the inner corners for a radiant finish.
HD Cream Liner (sea green) is mixed with a touch of HD Cream Liner (mud grey) and applied generously to the inner socket line, without precision, allowing the creamy texture to melt into the contours and natural plains of the eyelid. HD Cream Liner (dark orchid) and HD Cream Liner (state grey) are then blended together creating a rich tone of a ripe berry, this shade frames the outer corners by stippling playfully around the lash and socket line. Supracolor 8 ml (blue 10) and HD Cream Liner (ebony) and HD Cream Liner (snow) are then placed haphazardly around this framework creating accents of highlight and contrast.
An energetic color palette decorates the lips, fiery warm tones provide bold impact while flicks of gold creates flame like details. Lip Stain (fusion) pressed in for density and applied with a fine brush to create a precise lip line. Pure Pigments Metallic (pure gold) is then infused with Mixing Medium and, with a fine tipped brush, is painted over in decorative swirls. Finally, a layer of High Gloss (crystal rose) creates a high-shine finish over the rich tones. Skin has a youthful dew provided by Shimmering Event Foundation (pearl) with a touch of Supracolor 8 ml (081) for blush.
Bright bold pinks dominate the lips in this direction but are softened by blotting and blending the edges. Lipstick Classic (LC 071) is layered generously to the center of the lips for an opaque effect. With a tissue, the edges are then encouraged to softly blur in contrast to the dense central application of color, resulting in a semi-matt finish. Ultra Foundation 15 g is sheered down with Shimmering Event Foundation (amber) for a fresh look on the skin. HD Micro Finish Powder is lightly dusted over to bring a velvety quality to the finish.
A stunning contrast of matt and metallic effect powders are layered in this look. HD Cream Liner (emerald) is applied over the eyelid and under the bottom lash line. Satin Powder (SP 656), a soft moss green, is buffed on top creating a chrome like reflection. Eye Shadow Matt in ‘S5’ strengthens the outer crescent of the socket line and inner corner up to the start of the brows. Satin Powder (SP 121), a silvery ash tone, is applied to the inner corners of the eye a swept across the center of the lid, up to the brow bone, for a cool toned highlight.
Lip Stain (urban) creates a hint of brown undertone by being pressed in underneath a central application of Lip Stain (metal). The lip line is precisely accentuated with a fine brush increasing the dramatic impression. The two teamed together create a dark and moody feel that is lifted subtly by a light dusting of Polyester Glimmer fine (multicolor), layered into the center. High Gloss (crystal rose) is sparingly applied over the entire lip for a moist effect. Lipstick Classic (LC 212) is blended in for blush with a concentration on the apples of the cheeks.
HD Cream Liner (sunshine) is muted by mixing it with HD Cream Liner (snow). This is applied over the eyelid before Eye Shadow Matt (lemon) is layered providing a bright pop of energized color with a powdery finish. Adding a retro element, Eye Shadow Matt (cloud) and ‘AB90’ are pressed in, with a firm angle brush, creating a diffused liner traveling through from the inner bottom corner and winging out at the root of the top lash line. Polyester Glimmer medium (multicolor) is pressed in below the bottom lash line and along the top of the cheek bone adding a nostalgic drama.
