Well it's round three of IndieAna's "Come Play With Me" series ♥ And this time the utterly gorgeous Gemma from Lady Sapphire Blog has chosen the theme: Unleash the Artist Within. And what a stunning look she came up with! Crikey talk about setting the bar sky high for the rest of us gals... I've been racking my brain for days trying to come up with something...creative, and that I could wear to work without freaking everyone out. And then I thought...what if I did a look that I normally would NEVER do, using NO colours, AND black on my waterline? I use rainbow hues every day on my eyes, sometimes up to three or four in the one look, so to keep things monochrome was quite an artistic leap for me...
Having decided on a virtually colourless theme, I cheated a little and didn't use a stark white - with my ancient eyes, I was already pushing my luck with the black liner(!), so I opted for a shimmery cream. I used Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Too Cool as a base all over the lid and underneath, and then loaded it up with a gold-flecked cream from the MUA Blue Babe trio palette. I lined both lashlines with MNY Master Precise Liquid Liner, and then added Black Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Liner on the waterline...
I was wearing a cream and black outfit (really? ha ha!) and went with a sassy red lip so I didn't look too washed out. Oh if only I'd been brave enough to add some black polka dots to my eyes!
What surprised me was how this neutral creamy shadow brought out the green of my irises - go figure!?!
