EOTD using Illamasqua pure pigment in berber

Hello my sweeties! How are you today? I have been planning my makeup for Valentine's day, and I decided this year I'd go with something new and unusual. What would you say of an EOTD involving brick red pure pigment? Unusual enough?

The star of the show is Illamasqua Pure pigment in berber, and this is the look I've come up with.

This is what I've used:

- NYX Above &beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion
- MAC eyeshadow Honey Lust
- Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber
- CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 104 Khaki précieux
- L'oréal Volume Million lashes luminizer hazel eyes

- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- MAC Pro long wear foundation NC20
- NYX Stay matte but not flat compact powder #05 soft beige
- Guerlain Crazy Terracotta


- NYX round lipstick in 611 Peony

As per usual I've taken a full face pic to show you the whole look. The MAC NC20 foundation already looks too dark on me this time of the year, so I'll probably be using YSL touche éclat BD40 on day D which is slightly paler and less yellow.

So, what do you think? would you dare something unusual or edgy for Valentine's day? would that surprise your loved one in a good or a bad way? I know my hubby is quite traditional, but I don't think he would be shocked with this look. We shall see :)

  1. Salut ma belle! I read your post while sipping coffee this morning and went to use your EOTD as inspiration for me - this is how much I loved it! In case you wonder: I used the bordeaux in the Nyx Fierce Palette ;-) have a wonderful day - bisous xxx

    It looks a lot less red on the skin, and it definitely doesn't give you that teary eyed look that red can sometimes give you. The effect is really seductive, a bit smoldering :-) Likey likey!

  3. These pigments are so beautiful, I currently own three shades: Static, Ore and Feverent, by far the best pigments I have tried and this review makes me want more!


I love your comments!
I read all and each of them and answer as much as I can. Don't hesitate to leave one, even if it's just to say hi :)
