Flaming Love Tutorial

May 4, 2011 4 comments

While looking around for inspiration, I ran across the picture below and instantly ran to get my camera and my makeup. [edit] The model featured here is Jangsara. Check out her makeup blog here.

I don’t know which products were used for the photo, but I have similar colors, and possibly, cheaper products than used on this model. Cheaper in my opinion is better, more-so when they are awesome quality!

So let’s get on with the tutorial!

Products used on my eyes:
Sugar Pill in Love+, Flame point,  and Poison Plum
UDPP in Eden
Inglot in #73 [gel liner] and #373[not pictured]
Fyrinnae‘s Pixie Epoxy
NYX‘s Eyeshadow Base in White
Clinique‘s High Impact Mascara

If you don’t like doing this yourself make sure you take precaution and add more loose powder under your eyes to catch fall out from your shadows! Nothing worse than having fall out mess up your foundation!!*

First I added UDPP in Eden all over my lid and smoothed out then added NYX’s eyeshadow base on top of that, less is more, with a very little amount of Pixie Epoxy. I waited a few minutes for the Pixie Epoxy to become tacky.

I’m a certified MAC-aholic. I have papers from my doctor proving it. Hell, I’m just plain addicted to makeup. At least it isn’t anything too nasty, like hookers and blow – right? And when I heard about Inglot, I was slightly curious. Yet, how can something be at the same quality as MAC without the hefty price tag?! Madness I tell you!

I peeked around online only to find (at the time) I had to drive to an Inglot store to buy it (they have an online store now go take a look! I found there were two store located in my city and made a trip. As soon as I saw the storefront, I think I passed out. I was in, or rather, at the doorway to Heaven. Makeup Heaven anyway.

Inglot store front. I swear I hear angels singing!

The store is clean, and modern, like its creators lab (the makeup was made by Wojtek Inglot a pharmaceutical company’s chemist!). And everything is testable. The entire stores stock is out for you to play with and swatch. One of the girls behind the counter let me know if I wanted she would give me brushes to play with if I wanted. Read more…
