Illamasqua Toxic Nature Inspired Look


When I saw the promo pictures of the Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection, I was blown away by the makeup on the models. Yes, the looks are over-the-top, but they are also some of the most artistic  ones I've seen so far. So, I couldn't help but try them on myself.

My look is a hybrid of these 2:

Only lips from 2nd pic




Products Used:
Face- Revlon Colorstay foundation, Body Shop Loose Powder
Cheeks- Nyx Pinky Blush (also on nose & chin)
Freckles- Maybelline Eyestudio Brown Gel Liner
Lips- Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Mat1, I applied some peachy pink blush on top of it, then a beige-pink eyeshadow, and then a bit of coral blush in the center where the lips meet. To line lips I used brown eye pencil (I don't have a brown lip liner :))
Eyes- Beige, Peach & brown eyeshadows, Bourjois Liner Feutre black felt tip liner, Dolly Wink Lashes


I hope the look didn't scare you all too much, and did you notice the plastic leaves? I ripped them off the basket I got from Lakme.. haha.. ;)

♥ Cynthia Z ^.^

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
