Look: Shadow Glam.

Yesterday I had the urge to play with Concrete Minerals loose shadow in Risqué.
It's a shadow I bought earlier this year as I realized I didn't have any red at all in my stash, which is nuts!
I love red eye shadow, there's something very (for lack of a better word) cool about it.
It can however also look horrible... Key, as in all make-up application, is to build it slowly. And bleeeeend...

I really wanted to share this set as I didn't feel like Instagram made it any justice.
And can we just take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous lavender highlight? (Product deets at the end)
It looks blue on it's own but as it was applied over red on the eyes and purple on the cheek bones it tuned out a bit more magical than I expected it to. A happy accident.

And yes, I'm still experimenting with my table lamp. ^^

Product details:
Dirty Hippie Cosmetics:
-Mineral concealer in Sunkissed applied lightly to cover a bit of redness on my cheeks, on and around my nose.
-Mineral shadow in Carbon, my absolute favorite matte black shadow probably ever. Used here for the brows, under eyes, as eyeliner and a tony bit around my lips to help the golden shimmer to pop against my pale complexion.
- Mineral shadow in Boysenberry: This was the first time using it on it's own not over another base than just skin. It's a gorgeous pale gray purple. Used to hollow out my cheek bones and ever so slightly as a blush.
- Eyeshadow in Goldilux. Used to outline my lips, over my lids and with a super light hand down the bridge of my nose and along the outer part of my brows.
Concrete Minerals:
- Shadow in Risqué (red). All the red seen. Constantly blended and layered.
Shiro Cosmetics:
- Finishing Powder: Fatality. A colorless rice and clay mix finishing powder.
Espionage Cosmetics:
- Shadow The Engineer. Which is the gorgeous lavender highlight... It's so much more beautiful irl. I did apply it with a damp brush then packed on a bit more because I <3 it.
- Kiss of Death lip serum in Gilded Force as my lip base.
