Editorial FOTD - Leafy Eyelines & Purple Lips

I have been wanting to do this editorial look for some time now ever since my blog friend Larie did these beautiful looks inspired by this.
(And she encouraged us to do it! )

Of course, all the models look beautiful and their makeups are stunning but I was particularly attracted to this look.
Maybe I just wanted her shoulders.
(Next life, baby)

It was also a little too much for an everyday look, but I just had another holiday concert which was a perfect occasion to wear this dramatic look.
This is what I came up with.


my editorial/stage FOTD





Sorry for the excessive lighting although it seemed very necessary for an editorial look aiming for a model shoot. ;p
I also used a different camera this time. 
I was amazed to see the different effect and texture cause the other settings were the same.
Funny this camera makes everything look blurry except for the hair! 
(Don't my eyebrows look bushy??)


The eyelines looked quite different than those usual winged ones.
They remind me of a pair of leaves or even feathers, which was kinda challenging for me.
I don't own any black liquid eyeliner so I just used a pencil type.
Another problem was that the lipstick color I was so sure was purple was not purple enough!
(I am wearing Revlon Berry Haute here.)

So, now I have concluded that I need a black liquid eyeliner and a (real) purple lipstick.
(It is never gonna end, is it?)
And I am going to have to quote my friend Larie cause she's so right about this.
"It is so much eyeliner, guys!".


I hope you enjoyed this look.
Wish everyone a happy new year! :)

  23. exactly..they are different than regular winged liners and i love it..i once tried and failed...it was quite obnosious, the result that is.it looks lovely on you.

    ReplyDelete
  24. thank you, Debi!
    i drew flat(?) lines rather than flicking them then put more underneath.
    i am glad to hear it worked out. ;)

  28. Hahahaha! Thanks, Lena - I love this look on you! I agree that the eyeliner shape was a little different - it was hard for me to try to mimic it, too. It's a different shape. And SO MUCH EYELINER, lol! But I really like it on you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. no thank you! and thanks for encouraging us! :)
    seriously, i had to sharpen my pencil in the middle of this. lol
    i need to find a good liquid eyeliner but at least this pencil gave me better control. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ive never been able to achieve looks with a lot of eyeliner.
    You pull it off really well!

  31. thank you, Cecilia!
    i need more practice but this is very encouraging. ;D

  32. Totally loving this look on you! I cannot believe how well you can draw that line with a pencil liner. I find pencil liners smudge on me too easily so I need to use a liquid liner to get a more sharper and "pointed" look. It's a great alternative to the liner/red lips holiday combo as well-purple tinted lipstick is much more fascinating! Oh and by the way, happy new year! <3

  33. you think so? awww thanks so much!
    i used the milani liquif'eye pencil and it doesn't smudge if i use it on top of my lids. on my waterlines, it is a different story..

    happy new years to you, too! :)

  37. I like the twist on the winged liner - it looks really good on you!

  38. thank you, Becky!
    i thought the eyelines in the original pics were quite interesting and charming, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. ok, thought these looked familiar. another blog friend tried to re-created this look with the gold. i love the eyeliner....mine actually turns out this way often, when i keep having to correct each side. my eyeliner gets bigger and bigger, lol!

    [oomph.]

    ReplyDelete
  40. whenever i do eyelines, i realize how lop sided my eyes are!!! it was quite difficult for me as well.
    i am relatively new to eyeliners. need more practice. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  41. hello pretty lady! i love the eyeliner!

    ReplyDelete
  42. aww Helen, thanks so much! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. It still looks similar to your reference photo, but it's still wearable at the same time! The OCC lip tar in Belladonna could be your purple lipstick, it looks a lot like the shade in that photo :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. awww thank you so much!
    and that's for the color rec as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love this look on you, especially the eyes! Very glamorous, you look gorgeous :) I think the most purple lipstick I have is Airborne Unicorn by Limecrime, though I'm not sure how wearable it is :p

    ReplyDelete
  46. thank you so much!

    now finding a wearable purple lippie sounds like a mission to me. lolz. :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love this eyeliner look, I always think when I've done it it looks way too bold even for a night out but when photographed it looks so gorgeous. Definitely suits you x

  48. thank you. ;)
    it was too much to wear on daily basis. i think it worked out fine for my performance, though. :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. I like this look. I could never pull something like that off :D
    I am a huge fan of black liquid eyeliner :D

    I hope you'll have an amazing new year

  51. beautiful!! I like how you winged the eye liner :))
    As far as I know, I don't really have any purple lipstick, the purpl-est I could think of is Revlon Lip butter in Raspberry pie :P

    ReplyDelete
  52. thank you, Pam!
    it was more challenging than the usual winged lines. i had to pack on the lower parts as well.
    i had raspberry pie and it looked very red on me. lipsticks are hard to figure out!! ;p

  53. You look stunning! Love this look on you!

  54. Yes you definitely need a liquid eyeliner! Purple lipstick? I don't know. I have some purply glosses that look great over certain pink lipsticks, but purple purple? I wouldn't have the guts to really wear it! Early happy new year honey :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. i know i am going to be shopping for a nice felt tip eyeliner soon. i thought the berry haute was very purple but my lips pulls more pink for some reason. i still want one purple purple, though!

    happy new year to you as well! :)
