This is a post I have been very excited about! I was recently asked, along with a few other excellent UK beauty bloggers to take part in the Ladyboys of Bangkok Makeup Challenge with Stargazer cosmetics. The Ladyboys of Bangkok were recently performing their new show Glamorous Amorous in Brighton, my home town and generally the best place ever, and are touring the country as we speak!
When coming up with ideas for my look I was thinking about the amazing transformation of the Ladyboys, that metamorphose into these beautiful performers for their dazzling shows. From there, and inspired by those huge fluttering lashes, I came to the idea of a colourful, glitter drenched butterfly! The exaggerated shapes may have been influenced a little by my obsessive trawling through Alex Box's makeup artistry and the super cool Under Blue Light's cartoonish fantasy makeup.
I loved those crazy pink lashes and was determined to use them, so for this I cut off a centimetre long section from the inside end of the lash band and applied them to my created lower lashline like little wings. I think this is a really fun way to use these kinds of lashes in a way that doesn't necessarily take over the look, and is also much less heavy on the eyes if you aren't used to falsies.
Here's what I used for this look!
Glue Stick and spatula to cover eyebrows
Stargazer Rose Pink (flourescent) eyeshadow all over brows and down to crease
Sugarpill Flamepoint at inner part of upper crease shadow and up to new brows
Sugarpill Poison Plumon lower lashline and blended out with Dollipop
Stargazer UV Orange glitter shaker all over upper crease, adhered with cheapy glitter liner
Darling Girl cosmetics Bubbles pigment over Sugarpill Tako on the lid and inner corner
ELF Eye Transformer in blue over inner corner for more shimmer
Maybelline Eye studio Gel Liner to line the eyes and crease lines to mimic butterfly wings
Snazaroo Clown White face paint mixed with a little Sugarpill Afterparty for brows and dots beneath eyes
Collection Glam Crystals glitter eye liner in Le Freak on inner part of brows
Stargazer Diamonte Coloured Diamonds (clear) on crease, with other ebay gems
Stargazer Pink Feathered False Eyelashes #53 cut and applied.
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 10
Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether all over the face as setting powder to give a soft golden sheen
Sugarpill Dollipop a blush on high points of cheeks
Dainty Doll blush in My Girl on apples of cheeks, nose, temples and chin
Stargazer Lipstick in 104 (turquoise with golden sheen) on upper lip
Barry M lip liner in 12 on lower lip with 17 Lasting Fix lipstick in Pink Power on top
Stargazer UV Orange glitter shaker applied to tacky lipstick
What do you guys think? I felt like a magical pixie creature in all of this and was so happy to have been asked to take part in such a fun challenge! I am always blown away by the beautiful glamour makeup of the Ladyboys, but for this I wanted to put my own playful spin on it!
Have a wonderful, glittery week!
