Wearable Halloween: Contrasting Green and Plum Dark Witchy Makeup Tutorial
Complementary hues can be quite gorgeous, but I myself, enjoy change! Instead of another gradient smokey eye, or dramatic glitter bomb, for today I went with the contrasting route. Essentially, contrasting hues bring out the best of each other, in the terms of being opposites. To avoid confusion, complementary’s are indeed opposites, and inhibit contrasts, but in the context of direct opposites being molded together, the term changes! Not only is the makeup look pictured below sexy, it is colorful, and vibrant. I don’t know about you loves, but I’m tired of seeing mounds of neutral– this applies to makeup pallets as well! What happened to the electric hues that used to be distributed throughout numerous pallets?! Perhaps company’s find they make more money off of dupes…dunno, but do care. For one, I will say this is the second look apart of my “Wearable Halloween” series, since it has a witchy vibe to it. List your thoughts below love bunnies, XOXO, your Lilz!

Notes: Glow From Within Skin Finish, Dark, Sexy
Morphe M439 Deluxe Buffer; One (1) Pump of Primer
*Hourglass Ambient Lighting Finishing Powder(s): Dim Light; Incandescent Light
Unlike most days, blush went a bit differently today. Instead of actually applying a peachy, plum like, or even orange shade of blush, I dusted Hourglass’s Dim Light Ambient powder across the apples of my cheeks with a Mac 159 brush. The peachy powder creates a bronze like effect on my skin while maintaining a luminous glow! Speaking of glows, from the same brand, I dusted the shade Incandescent Light on top of all highlighting zones. Sadly, I am aware that MANY do not know how to manipulate the Ambient powder’s! For as long as you blend evenly, and place your products strategically across certain zones of your face, there really should be NO problem’s yielded, but if you have further questions feel free to shoot me an email :). As far as the lips go I applied TWO coating’s of Venom Lip Gloss by Anastasia Beverly hHlls onto both my upper and bottom lips, then sprayed on Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray to ensure my witchy makeup look would remain set, and glamorous all night long.
