I got Bored...

I was bored, so decided to tackle the tribal trend with leopard print make up!

I wasn't sure how to approach this look at first, but after a bit of thought I decided on liquid eyeliner.

Now I am a bit silly and I didn't take any pictures where you can see the colour perfectly but this one is the best I  snapped!

I assure you the base of my eye was a pale cream/goldy colour, with black liquid liner used the create the spotted affect. Then I dabbed some dark brown eyeshadow into the gaps created by the liquid eyeliner to make the spots look a darker colour to the rest of my eyelid. (Just like leopard print looks!)
I used the same dark brown shadow to line my lids very close to the lash line.
I then used a black mascara to intensify my lashes.

After I was finished playing with my eyes, I decided to be a little more daring. Now I wouldnt wear this next look out in the street on a daily basis, but perhaps for a fancy dress party, or a catwalk/modelling show it would be appropiate.

I applied a base coat of  loose powder on my lips, then applied the same principle of using liquid eyeliner to create the illusion of leopard spots onto my lips. I dragged the spots upwards over the top of the right hand side of my lip.

Overall very pleased with how it looks! I just need an excuse to wear it now! (well the eyeshadow at least!)

What I used:
FrontCover eyeshadow in "powder puff"
FrontCover eyeshadow in "'coffee coin"
ELF Cream Eyeliner in "black" applied with FrontCover ShadowLine applicator

Maxfactor Facefinity Compact Foundation in "Ivory"
ELF Cream Eyeliner in "black" applied with FrontCover ShadowLine applicator
