'Petrol Spill' Look

The inspiration for this look started with me playing around with a few items from the MAC Kabuki collection that came out not too long ago. The crystal glaze glosses in particular really caught my eye.

I started by both lining & filling in the entire lip with Feline eye pencil, i then topped this with the 'overnight sensation' paint from the kabuki collection.

Next I layered the crystal glaze glosses in colours 'it's a great feeling' & 'ice follies' on opposite sides.

Ice follies has blue & pink reflective pigments that catch the light beautifully. 'It's a great feeling' is a red gloss with a warm orange pearl running through it; it creates a rich berry tone on top of the paint and black liner.

All of these colours work harmoniously and reminded me of the rainbow of colours you see in a petrol spill because of the way the glosses catch the light.

To keep the focal key the lips i decided to keep the eyes neutral with a touch of soft definition. To achieve this i used Rimmel magnif'eyes Pencil in 'Queens of a bronze age' I used the light shade all over the lid then the bronze shade as a soft liner by the lash line.

To amp up the look that bit further i added a generous amount of the ice follies gloss on top to get that gorgeous high shine.

To keep the skin fresh i used a MAC face & Body water based foundation to give a beautiful glow to the skin. I team this up with their pro long wear concealer to boost coverage in problematic / oily areas, keeping the cheeks glowing but t-zone matte for a controlled glow.

For the cheeks i just wanted to add a bit of warmth with minimal blush, to achieve this i used Sisley powder gel bronzer onto the perimeters of the face whilst paying the most attention to the cheekbones.

I always like to use powder shadows to shape my brows as i like a soft but defined look.For this particular look i used NYX Dark brown eyebrow palette along side their clear brow set to lock the brow hairs in place whilst adding texture.


Finally with a heavy focus on glossy skin, eyes and lips. I thought a wet hair look would compliment this the best giving it more of an edgy feel.

As always thank you for stopping by. I hope the look has inspired you to try something new!
