Not So Quick Look: Iris/Pistachio

One of my latest makeup goals is to play with shapes more. I mean that in two ways; carving out new contours on my face, and also incorporating more interesting shapes into makeup looks. This look, I think, has accomplished both of these things!

This look was done with Madison Street Beauty's Iris and Pistachio eyeshadows and was blended out with Blue Chocolat from the Creme de Couture palette. I used the Iris shade to create first one really exaggerated crease that went almost straight up. I then pulled a second crease in from the middle of the first. I think this gave my face some interesting shapes.

On my lips I used Impulse Cosmetics Psychedelic lipstick.

Somehow I think this makes me look like a sad alien or something. What do you think of it?

  1. There's something about the shapes in your eyeshadow that almost reminds me of butterfly wings... not sure if that's what you were going for, but that's what I immediately think of. I'm loving it with that lipstick color btw!

  2. This looks is very interesting Kat! I was actually thinking of ways I could get more creative. A lot of the time people ask me to do everyday looks but I get so bored of that! I like to play with color. I was shooting a valentine's day look this weekend and I was going to create something soft and then when I got going I ended up with bold bright pigment lol.
