It's been quite some time since I did an 'inspired by' look (I've decided to add a tag for it).

I was looking for something really colourful and bright but was fresh out of ideas so browsed the older posts on Ale's blog.

Whilst it's not at all fitting with the season, I had an overwhelming urge to take inspiration from this:


Here's my inspired look:


Face:
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation - Calico.
Benefit Boi-ing - Light.
HD Brows - Dark Brown (Vamp palette)*.
M.A.C Powder Blush - Well Dressed.
Illamasqua Cream Blush - Zygomatic (contour)*.
M.A.C Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Light.

Eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion.
M.A.C Eyeshadow - Chrome Yellow (inner corner), Passionate (all over lid).
VIVO Pearl Eyeshadow - Electric Purple (crease).
88 Shimmer Palette:


1 (brow highlight), 2 (over Chrome Yellow), 3 (over Passionate), 4 (crease), 5 (above crease into highlight).
Illamasqua Precision Ink - Abyss (upper lashline).
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil - Zero (waterline).
Barbara Daly High Impact Mascara*.

Lips:
Revlon Lip Butter - Sweet Tart.

I opted to go a little less darker as I unfortunately don't have as much space to work with between my crease and my brow bone. If I'd have gone too dark it would have closed the eye right up and I prefer how it looks without it. Colourful and bright!

I shopped my stash and used what I had. I used the M.A.C shadows as bases. They're matte so had good colour pay off. To add the shimmer I then used shadows from the 88 Palette over the top to give it a similar effect to the picture I was working from.

Overall I loved the look and got a ton of compliments on it.
