I haven't done one of those in ages, frankly because I've been feeling quite insecure about my skin's condition lately. I'm trying hard to change the attitude I have towards my face; it's quite unbelievable how critical we can be of ourselves. I've noticed I don't even pay that much attention to uneven skin texture in others, but it drives me to tears in myself.
Anyway, back to business: I neglected my black liquid eyeliner a lot in the past months, so I decided to whip it out together with another forgotten product, Inglot Gel lipstick in a vibrant deep pink shade. Here's the effect:
The photos were taken after a few hours' wear, so excuse any smudges or imperfections. I was after very clean, minimalistic lines on the eye and a bold splash of color on the lips. I think of this make-up as of a modern version of classic pin-up look, and in my opinion it goes quite well with a very pale complexion like mine because of the huge contrasts between the paleness of the skin and black and berry make-up colors.
I don't know how much of those guidelines I managed to put into practice, but this sure was a hit with my father. He likes darker lip colors a lot, maybe being educated as an actor he's not really into the whole 'make-up no make-up' trend :)
