Not much to say today other than “blame the readings.” Seriously; there are so many of them! I have the sneaking suspicion that my Sociology prof is A) totally crazy, B) totally brilliant, and/or C) secretly trying to teach the course as if it was a FemLit class, rather than a general Soc one.
So, instead of a tutorial, today you will get a simple statement: Marcelle’s Lux Metallic eyeliners blend and layer like whoa! I love how insanely easy it is to create an ombre effect with them.
Wait! I lied (again.) I actually have two more things to say — it was incredibly difficult to intensify the pinky-violet, and even harder to keep the distinct separation of the blue and pink/violet/whatever the heck you want to call it. I really like the final effect, but I don’t know… Purple Haze isn’t exactly in my “good books” right now.
And one more not-so-great photo, to show off that awesome ombre:

(Argh, I can NOT get this spread to centre itself within the box!)
And if you’d rather try to dupe it:
I’ve heard that Revlon Vintage Lace (bottom left) is a great replacement for MAC Blanc Type, and Riviera Blue is as close to B-Ray as you’re going to get! Plus, everyone keeps raving about Illamasqua mattes… perhaps they’re more impressive than Urban Decay’s were?
