Halloween is here. Although I wish I could have published this look earlier, I have been terribly busy.
Well, let’s begin.
I wanted to do a Greek Goddess, but how do you portray one? In this case, I wanted to be Persephone, b/c of my boyfriend’s fondness of Hades. She’s known as The Queen of the Underworld and the origin of the Seasons. I didn’t want anything too dark, b/c Persephone, tho known for her dark beauty (black eyes and hair), was a great beauty and lover of spring and flowers. She was abducted by Hades and doomed to spend part of her year with him and the other part on Olympus.
Well, here’s what I’ve done. I used the 80 Shimmer Palette, Catrice’s eye Quattro in Aqua Flash nº5, Natura’s Unica Foundation, makeup remover and white pigment, the blush from the 42 palette, a darker pressed powder to contour…. oh, and HUGE fake lashes too lol.
<<< I used these colors >>>
This is how I looked before.
This is how I looked after.
I mixed a little makeup remover to thin the foundation and a little amount of white pigment to make it paler. I used the pink on the inside, the lavender in the middle, white to highlight the top of the eyebrows.
I used too much blush, I know. The thing is, the flash was washing out the color so I added more. And now that I’m looking at the pics I could have toned it down a lot.
I used an eBay gel liner (the best I’ve ever got!!) to line and do my water line. Also, I used the rest of it in the brush to define my brows.
In these close ups you can see the blending and the distribution of the color. I used the purple to contour my nose too. The lashes I got on eBay, I don’t remember the seller but he/she had a great selection.
Until next time,
Huggles to all!
