Illamasqua contest entry







(Note: The video looks much better in high quality, click the red HQ button!)

I couldn't wait to enter Mizz Worthy's contest to hopefully win some Illamasqua goodies. I just love the philosophy behind Illamasqua's slogan of creating one's alter ego. This is exactly what I like about makeup and how I like to use it to let my imagination run wild.

This look is my rocker, rebel alter ego. I wanted a very intense eye look without using too much colour, and just completely nuded-out lips. I used hair and accessories to compliment the make-up to let my inner rebel shine through. Thanks to Mizz Worthy for the opportunity and giving me a chance to get creative!

    yeah please make a tutorial for this exact look and colors... most tutorials attach the smoky color with the edge of the eye or liner which gives an end to ur eye, whereas, ur is open and extend the eyes. beautifully.
    im not in to the make up tutorial, i dont think i need it, but ur work worth recognition.
    im waiting for this look tutorial :)
