ILLAMASQUA’S HUMAN FUNDAMENTALISM: MAKING IT WORK IN REAL LIFE
Illamasqua is a company known for putting out some beautiful makeup. Their products are of the highest quality, eyeshadows are well pigmented with great payoff and they have a huge color range. Each time a color story comes out I wait with baited breath to see how I will be able to work the magical colors into my routine. This Spring/Summer their Human Fundamentalism collection was by far the most extraordinarily bright I have seen in some time. If you go to www.illamasqua.com you will see how Alex Box (their director of artistry) dreamed up a futuristic land where color reigns supreme for everyone’s alter ego.
From the top: (eyeshadows) Sex, Hype, CanCan, Inception, Fledgling, Vapour, Vernau, Pivot, Burst, Scribe liner, Neutral Palette, Fundamental Palette, Au Skin Base, Tremble blush, Flare lipstick, Eurydice lipstick.
Look No.1 consists of Fledgling (bright matte green) in the crease. On the lid I used Pivot (bright acid green). Under the brow I used two shadows, Vapour (bright matte apricot, then I went over it with Sex (matte white) to tone it down some. Under the eye I lined with Liquid Metal in Surge (silver) from the Fundamental Palette. On my cheeks I used Tremble (bright matte apricot) and on my lips I used Flare (bright matte orange) over nude brown lip pencil (Cover Girl’s Sublime). The nude lip pencil toned down the orange lipstick a little. Overall I think the look works for me, as I am used to experimenting with colors. Tomorrow a new look!
