UD show pony colorful look

I know you haven't heard from me for a long time now.. It's because of the wedding party I had. :) My husband arrived to my town and we've been really busy lately. But I've finally found the time to make another makeup look for you. In this look I used the UD Show Pony Palette. The colors I used are: Mildew, Flash and Painkiller.

Pics from the wedding soon to come :)

Blue smokey - Glowy Eyes

For this look I used 3 different shades. For the "glowy" effect I used a very bright blue around all the eye blending it into the other colors. You can do this look with any other color you want. Just use 3 shades of it - light, dark, and bright.
Usually, blue color is not very flattering for green eyes. so I don't use it very often.. Although this was kind of fun.

Less Is More (Makeup For Teens)

I started using makeup at the age of  16. I only wore a little bit of powder and black liner on the water-line. I started to wear full makeup as I was 18 years old. I really do not recommend to start using makeup at young age! Especially if you have good skin! Teens are starting using makeup mostly because of acne, and I just want to tell you right now that if you try to cover it with tons of makeup it will look even worse! As we are young most of us has good skin and if you'll use too much makeup your skin will break out more easily and will get older faster, and you really don't want that! For beginners of using makeup I recommend to start with just a little bit for evenings or if you go out somewhere, And even then - try to use light weight products and try to avoid using too much foundation if at all!
For this look I didn't used too much products at all. It looks natural and as you're even not wearing makeup at all.. It's good for makeup beginners or if you just want to look good without looking too made. (Like when your new boyfriend tells you he wants to see you without makeup but you still want to look good :P )

# First, apply foundation. ( I used a little bit only on my T zone where there are more discolorations)
# Conceal any blemishes and under-eye circles 
# Lightly dust it with a little bit of powder
# Use a natural colored blush. Not too pink.
# Define your brows
# For brow highlight use a bright pencil and blend it out (You can use something like the benefit eye bright, or just a white eye pencil)
# Use an eyeshadow for the lid that is one shade lighter then your skin tone (I used MAC Brule)
# Use some bronzer on a fluffy brush to warm up the crease (Don't use too much)
# Light up the inner corners of your eyes using the same product you used for your brow highlight
# (You can skip this step if you wish) - Apply a very thin line of balck/brown eyeliner to the upper lash line
# Curl your lashes
# Apply one coat of mascara
# For the lips use some lip balm or lipstick that is similar to your lip color

Aaaand.. You're Done! :)

Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection for Spring-Summer 2011

Launch Dates: 
At - March 10th, 201
At UK Counters - March 17th
At Sephora - April 2011

Unpredictable, uncharted and unnat¬ural, Illamasqua unleashes Toxic Nature for Spring/Summer 2011, a colour collection born from a visionary concept of nature fighting back against the genetically modified society that plunders it. Illamasqua has created the Toxic Nature collection through a palette of lurid shades, corrupted hues and glistening muted tones that offer intoxicating versions of their original selves.

As Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director claims, “Having an artist background highly influenced this collection. The medium of paint when it is in various states [mixed on a palette, on a canvas, the colours mutating when you wash your brushes] inspired the product colours of Toxic Nature. Blends, washes, dabs, drips, daubs and splashes of colour are evident in the imagery of the collection.”

Like nature itself, it’s not all sweetness and light. Shades of mint, mushroom, plum, orange and rose are distorted with rich textures and pops of acid-infused brightness that command attention and draw you in…

For me.. The pictures tells all!!


Cream Pigment:
A new matt formula that can either neutralise or dominate. Create the ultimate in textures whether it’s on your face, eyes, or body, bringing a flash of colour to a subtle contour.  “The power of the products in this collection is evident in the intensity of the Cream Pigments they are intense, raw colour but blend down easily exactly like an artists paint palette.” Alex Box.
