After the excellent event that was the Illamsaqua ImPerfection collection launch last week, I could not wait to try out some of the techniques that were demoed to us by Alex Box and David Horne. Clearly the most exciting of these was the speckled eyeliner, designed to look like feathers. I didn’t have a black or white eyeliner at home to try this out, so thought I’d use what I already had and create a blue version.
I used the following products from Lime Crime and Barry M which did the job nicely…
I used the dark metallic blue to line my eyes with a vintage style flick pretty much as normal, but taking a little less care as this look is about imperfection and it’s supposed to be organic and simple to create. Once this had dried a little I speckled on top with both the Barry M silver and the Lime Crime Uniliner in Blue Milk, these shades did just the right amount of contrast and I really like the effect. What do you think?
In addition, I’m wearing other new items from Illamasqua: Immodest Lipstick, Blusher Duo in Lover & Hussy over the top of Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation. My eyebrows are filled in with a Paul & Joe Pencil and I’ve got Sleek Concealer on. More details on those new Illamasqua products coming in other posts in the coming weeks.
What do you think of this look?
Would you wear speckle liner?
