NTMS- Black and White

I am stupid excited. Seriously. Stupid excited. Why? Two reasons:

1) This is the first look I've ever done for the Facebook group, Never Too Much Sparkle, and their weekly showcase theme- which is 'Black and White' this week.

2) This is the first time since the holiday season that I've been able to actually sit and play with my makeup.

So, needless to say, I've had a blast today.

  • M.A.C. Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • M.A.C. Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
  • Bourjois blush in 16 Rose Coup De Foudre
  • UDPP in 'Original'
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk'- all over the lid and up to the brow bone
  • Matte White eyeshadow (120 Pro Palette)- all over the NYX base
  • 'Black Dog' (matte black) by Urban Decay- in the outer 'V', and tapered out into a thin line towards the nose
  • 'Rock' (charcoal gray w/ subtle shimmer) by NYX- used to help blend out the black
  • 'Wedding Day' (white w/ shimmer) by Sephora- over the matte white
  • NYX studio liquid liner in 'Extreme Black'- winged out along the black eyeshadow, also thinly applied on the lower lash line and extended out
  • 'Black Dog'- along the lower lash line
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in 'Milk'- in the waterline between the wings
  • Matte White eyeshadow- to set the Jumbo Pencil
  • M.A.C. Technakohl liner in 'Graphblack'- in the tightline
  • Too Faced Lashgasm mascara
  • 'Marquis 'D' by M.A.C.

Later, my freaky darlings.

Heavy Metal- Gold Standard

So, I came up with this brilliant idea, and it isn't over used at all... (Could you detect the hint of sarcasm in the text just then?) Eye makeup based on metals (i.e. silver, gold, blah, blah, blah), what a unique concept!

Hur. Hur.


So up first is gold. Why? Because it glitters. Though, "All this is gold does not glitter, not all who wander are lost..."

Oops. Went on a bit of a Tolkien trail just then. Let's get on with the look, shall we?

  • M.A.C. Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • UDPP Primer Potion in 'Original'
  • M.A.C. Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
  • 'Nerdgasm' blush by Geek Chic Cosmetics
  • 'Woodwinked' by M.A.C.  - all over the lid and slightly above the crease
  • 'Baked' by Urban Decay - in the outer 'V' and through the crease
  • 'Goldilux' by Sugarpill - center of the lid
  • 'Blond Ambition' by Too Faced - inner corner
  • 'Virgin' by Urban Decay - brow bone
  • 'Strada' by NARS - lower lash line
  • 'Brownborder' Technakohl Liner by M.A.C. - tight line
  • 'Velvet' Eye Pencil by NYX - waterline
  • Too Faced LashGasm mascara
  • 'Marquis 'D' by M.A.C.

Later, my freaky darlings.
