One of my favorite makeup "rules" here at jane iredale is that there are no rules. While fresh and pretty is always in season, we do love to play with our makeup!
Saturday night was the annual costume ball fund raiser at IS183, the Art School of the Berkshires. This year, the theme was "Radioactive Bodega" and the costumes were wild! Our own Brand Creative Designer, Courtney has been swooning over spring's tribal trend and this event was the perfect venue to experiment with it.
The centerpiece of Courtney's radioactive look was her "yellow raccoon eyes." She started with the gold end of Double DazzleHighlighter Pencil on the inner half of the lid including a large dot at the inner corner of the eye. Then she used the copper end on the outer half of the lid, extending well beyond the outer corner of the eye, ending with a large dot out there. She sketched it on straight from the pencil and barely blended, as the line was meant to be quite defined. Next, she applied the Yellow shade from Artists Eyes with the Eye Shader Brush from the inner corner of the eye to the brow, extending out to the temple and sweeping it under the outer third of her eye. She used quite a lot of shadow and tapped it on carefully to create intensity. Then with the same brush (wipe it clean first!) she pressed 24-Karat Gold Dust in Aquamarineonto the upper lids. She wet the Detail Brush and applied Aquamarine as eye liner all around the eyes. Midnight BlueEye Pencilwent in the waterline (inner rims). She finished the eyes with Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in Black Ice. Her secret to setting the look and keeping it bright all night? "Lots and lots of D20 Hydration Spray!"
To finish the look, Courtney used plenty of In Touch Cream Blush in Clarity on the cheeks, and Lip Fixation (we're all obsessed) in Desire on the lips. Although you can't see it in the picture, she also has Grey Silk Eye Gloss on her ears for added intrigue.
While this look isn't exactly office-appropriate, even for us, it's so much fun to take a walk on the wild side.
