Gray Smoke - Dragon*Con Trial 1

Thursday, August 19, 2010

I'm still not ready for Dragon*Con. I only have one outfit picked out and NONE of the makeup. And since D*C is next week you can imagine how I feel about that! I've been scouring YouTube for inspiration, for looks that I think might work and I stumbled upon this one done by pixiwoo (my new favorite gurus - these ladies are amazing!). It's a very dark smoky look that requires layers of gunmetal gray, black - plus a lot of blending. Since I was doing all this at 9pm sitting on my bed, I wasn't willing to commit to false lashes, but this look would definitely have them if I wore it at D*C.

I know in these pictures I'm kind of giving the camera bitch face, but this look just doesn't work if I'm smiling happily into the camera! Trust me on this - I tried.

Products Used:
--e.l.f. Mineral Face Primer (used as eye primer, but since I didn't wear this look long I can't comment about any longevity results)
--Ulta eyeshadow in Gunmetal
--Kat Von D True Love palette, lucifer eyeshadow (black)
--FaceFront Cosmetics loose eyeshadow in Xenon Zephyr
--MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
