Day 10-12 Black, Smokey and Glitter- October Makeup Challenge


Day 10- Black!
Black Lipstick was actually a trend for black women in the 90s. I think that its back now! Its one of them love or hate types of makeup to wear and definitely for the more daring out going type of gal.
This lipstick shade is by BlackUp Cosmetics, and I thought this look will work well for my monthly challenge as it is somewhat a peculiar type of makeup to rock. When I posted this unto my instagra, however, A lot of ladies loved it, some however were not so keen! But its ok! This is the fun of makeup!

Products Used:
Face: Illamasqua- Skin base Foundation in No.17
Contour- BlackUp- Palette de correcteur in CR03 (dark shade)
Highlight: La Girl Pro Concealer in Toast and Almond (mixed)

Day 11:
Everybody loves a smokey eye. Its a dramatic look, but so easy to achieve. Day 11 was interesting as I got to do a smokey eye but because of the base I used, it had this velvet look. Smokey eyes are great for fall, can be worn day or night or an evening out. I added a pop of colour on the lips and dazzled the eye look with my signature gold tear duct and luscious lashes!

Day 12: Glitter
I looooove me some glitter! Its so gorgeous. This look is so sexy, like its such an effortless day time look, I didn't want to do the typical glitter look where I added the same colour on top of the same eyeshadow colour, I wanted to be bold and add a contrast. So I used green and gold cosmetic glitter... I actually cannot wait to the holiday season where I can really play in my glitter stash. The bold lip signifies everything sassy and cute yet elegant and classy. Instead of a classic red, I went for a bold burnt orange matte lip which to me was so much more interesting.
