Whaaaat??? TWO posts in one week? Yeah, I’m probably blowing my wad in one go, but what a way to go! I mean it! Look it at how pretty!!!
The fabulous Mikey Castillo (@mikeylemetier) was visiting and taking appointments, so I absolutely HAD to meet him and have my makeup done. I learned tons about the line and got to see what LMdB’s latest kaleidoscope looked on my lids, and guurl! I had to hold back from buying everything the man put on me!
So, yeah, we chatted makeup and blending, how I’ve totally been applying blush the wrong way (apples of your cheeks, ladies, apples), and how smokey doesn’t *have* to mean “I’m working on this day time black eye look”. The technique is called Couches de Couleur which layers colors to create a prismatic effect (translation: soft, pretty, multidimensional glow on your lids, cheeks or lips).
Mikey accomplished this on my peepers by starting with a base of Dualistic eye pencil in Champagne all over the lid then using the colors from the Chauvet Pont d’Arc kaleidoscope (top to bottom) and then punching it up by adding a layer of Lapis e/s and a layer of Fire Lily e/s. On my upper lash line and on my waterline he used a liquid liner that’s changed my life, in Noir. (Changed my life b/c it’s water based and doesn’t make me want to rinse my eyeballs at the end of the day…plus totally safe for my eyelash extensions…yeah, you heard that right, I’m vain, I pay someone to painstakingly individually glue lash extensions on my feeble Asian lashes–shout out to my girl Kathy at Consher!)
I believe on my cheeks was Blushing Brozed Duet in Traviata and layered on my lips was the NM exclusive Indian Summer lip gloss lip creme set in Ginger Snap and Copper Leaf.
