Decora look

I did this look over the weekend. It was a bit impromptu, I wanted to use Sugarpill Chromalust in Decora (seriously gorgeous hot pink with turquoise sparkles) but had absolutely no idea what I was going to use with it. Instead of spending ages debating, I just grabbed some other colours & ended up using Sugarpill's Weekender, Bulletproof & MAC's Bough Grey with some Kat Von D Autograph Liner in Black Metal Love.

The end result was something that I really liked & would definitely do again.

I used a touch of MAC's water based mixing medium with Decora to get it to really shine (this photo just doesn't do it any justice).
Bough Grey was used in the crease with a tiny amount of Bulletproof, which I also used on the outer corner.
MAC's Blanc Type was used on the browbone with a tiny amount of Illamasqua's Idol to highlight. Idol was the inner-eye highlight shade too.
Black Metal Love is an amazing liquid liner with tiny silver sparkles which, unfortunately, don't show up here.
The lower lid is Weekender with a touch of water based mixing medium to dampen my new favourite brush, Illamasqua's lip brush. Yes. A lip brush. It's fantastic to use on eyes.

This isn't the greatest picture but the colours show up a little brighter here. It's still not as vivid as it looked in reality. Decora is an amazing hot pink that these pictures just haven't managed to capture the true beauty of.
