Mizz Worthy's Illamasqua Contest Entry

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone has had a great day!

I was feeling inspired by the amazing entries by @Kelanjo19 and @He1e for Mizz Worthy's Illamasqua contest and thought I'd give it a go. I've never tries Illamasqua before by have heard really good things about it. To make an entry you can find all the information here.

I felt really inspired my the pictures on Mizz Worthy's blog and this is my own take on the look. It's kind of gothic for blondes hehe! I've always wanted to wear some crazy eyelashes and do really dark angled make up in my favourite colours (blues/turquoises) but I would never wear this out. To add an 18th century vibe to all the drama made my freckle into a heart using kohl liner!

Products used were (in order):
Nina Ricci Exact Finish Eyebrow Pencil No4 in light strokes to define my eyebrows,Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the eye lids,
No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil in 03 Blue smudged out with GOSH smudger brush,
Barry M Dazzle Dust in 10 on inner corners of the eyes,
GOSH Effect Powder in Spa on inner thirds of the eye lids using MAC 230 shader brush,
Clarins Colour Quarter For Eyes 03 Blue shimmers light blue colour on middle third of the eye lids using MAC 230 shader brush,
Giorgio Armarni Eyeshadow in 51 on outer third of the eye lids using the MAC 230 shader brush(I used sellotape to create the straight line),
Over the top of these colours I used a little bit of MAC Phloof! Frost in the inner corners of the eyes using the GOSH smudger brush. I also used this as a highlight colour using the Body Shop's large angled brush,
On the inner third of the eye lid I used MAC Jewel Blue Veluxe using the Ruby & Millie Eye Brush (M) - SHORT,
On the middle third of the eye I used MAC Cornflower Pigment Colour Powder using the Ruby & Millie Eye Brush (M) - SHORT,
Then on the outer corner I used Nina Ricci Plush Mono Eyeshadow Strass Effect 15 Nuit Noire using the Ruby & Millie Eye Brush (M) - SHORT,
I also used these colours in the same order underneath my lower lash line using the MAC 230 shader brush and blended everything a little bit,
I lined my inner lids and tightline with Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in black using the MAC 209 brush,
I then drew around the outer edge of the shape I created with with the GOSH Extreme Art Liner in 08,
I then dusted away any fallout using the Body Shop large powder brush,
I then applied Revlon Beyond Natural 210 Light Pale and APt Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation SPF15 in Porcelain using my fingers all over the rest of my face, neck and lips,
I then used MAC Select Cover - Up in NC20 underneath the eyes and over any discolouration,
I then contoured and highlighted using the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde with the MAC 168 angled brush,
I then added the little heart using black Lancome kohl eyeliner,
Added Lancome Definicils and L'Oreal Voluminous both in black.
Glued on the eylure TOKYO LASHES (limited edition) and finally used GOSH lipstick in 134
Darling - volia!

I can't wait to see everyone else's looks!
