The Penguin Makeup Challenge: Black & White

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

It's finally here! I'm delighted to take part in The Penguin Makeup Challenge along with many other fabulous bloggers. Today's challenge is using the classic black and white.

Since I haven't done any outlandish makeup looks lately, I felt like I wanted to do something a bit more editorial than a day to day look. I was heavily influenced by the the makeup MAC did for The Blonds NYFW 2011. Even that was too safe though, I added in a bit more! I didn't want to over power it with false lashes though. Minimally outlandish?

Brows: NARS Bali shadow
Face: MUFE Full Cover Concealer, MUFE HD mixed with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, e.l.f. HD Powder and NYX Taupe blush
Eyes: LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, NYX Jumbo Milk Pencil, Wet'n'Wild I <3 Matte Palette, Calvin Klein Night Dust shadow, MAC Mixing Medium Gel, Urban Decay Uzi shadow
Lips: BECCA Gisella 
I wanted to play with sharp lines, but soft rounded curves at the same time. Hence the huge hair bun, and the contouring of the cheeks. 

Check out the other bloggers that participated and their awesome black & white looks!
