I do find that I can be on the lazy side when it comes to reapplying so I tend to wear dark colours only now and then. However this little beauty may make me turn to the dark side more often.
I decided with a colour this strong to keep the eyes simple. I used hardly any shadow on the lid to keep it a liner look. For the cheeks I used a small touch of Diablo again.
So what can I say, I heart Illamasqua.
I do still want to try and find my perfect red. Tacky Blue Eyeshadow did a great post a while back about finding your perfect red for your skin tone (go read if you haven't already) but the trouble is I’m not sure what I am. I think I am a “cool toned with pink undertones”. I feel way to pale to be anything other than “cool” although sometimes I think that perhaps I’m yellowed toned. Trouble is trying lipsticks. I would never EVER try a lippie from a tester in a shop EVER so how to I find my perfect shade without wasting a load of cash on lipsticks I won’t use? The reds I have are more in the orangey side and I do feel they make my teeth look yellow so I will have to try a blue one soon. I have heard that MAC’s Russian Red is a good colour on most so I might treat myself to that soon.
I was thinking I could perhaps take a photo of me smiling and photoshop different shades of red on me to see what tones work! Tee hee
