I started doing the Monday Shadow Challenge's Facebook group looks again last week with my Acceptable in the 80's makeup look and I was thrilled to do this week's where I had to use pastel green and beige.
Not that easy to mix those colors and I have to say, I wasn't crazy with how it turned out until I took that picture. I did take more but none has the cachet this photo has so I'm keeping just this one.

I love graphic looks and I've practiced on models often but it's much harder to achieve a perfect symmetry and fine strokes of brush on myself, especially on a big look like that AND with an Inglot Gel Liner. In case you didn't know, I am a very very big fan of Inglot, I love their matte lipsticks (I have reviewed my three red Inglot matte lipsticks a few weeks ago and my first two Inglot nude matte lipsticks too - and more reviews are coming your way soon !) but the first thing I fell in love with were their Gel liners. They're awesome, they're pigmented but they're also very fluid, dry very fast and are waterproof so you kinda have to be a makeup ninja to use them properly - I've actually never come across a liner that glided that well and it always takes me by surprise.

Also, I'm finally wearing my MAC Marrakesh lipstick for a look ! I just love this color on myself and I think I may have two of these lipsticks at home - one backup, just in case... Xx
