Face of the Day (FOTD): Getting Vicious
Posted by: dweam on: October 3, 2009
Following in the footsteps of one of the hottest trends for the Autum/Winter 09 season, I decided to try my hand at being vicious, Lid Vicious that is.
After attending the M.A.C Autum/Winter Trend Presentation, I couldnt help but drool over the images and demonstration by Gregory Arlt. I definitely picked up a couple of tips from watching the master at work.
Looking to the runway, here is an example of what it’s like to be Lid Vicious. Various fashion brands including Dsquared2 turned to the dark side for their runway shows.
The girls look like they lived in their makeup overnight! The smokey, smudged effect is something I personally think is wearable on the streets. Very apt when we want to invoke the rock chick in us.
The trick is to line the bottom lids with eyeliner AND then BLEND the line out with a dark eyeshadow in a similar colour.
My take on it.
Rare Minerals SPF 30++ in Medium
Kate Gel Eyeliner in Black (must have!)
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Pandora (shimmer white/matt black) (must have!)
Top lash: Maybelline Define-a-lash mascara
Bottom lash: Maybelline XXL Waterproof mascara
DuWop Lip Venom
My second attempt at underlining my bottom eyelids and hey, I’m liking it! Remember, do keep the rest of the face clean if you’re sporting strong eyes.
