FOTD: Changeling

I haven’t posted a makeup look in ages. In fact, I haven’t created one worth documenting in ages either. I did this waaaay back in April. Whoops.

This look started out with the intent of using TopShop Chameleon Glow Changeling, but the name of the shadow and its incredible color shift kind of took over and it evolved into this.

Aaaand I just realized that I never did post pics of that gorgeous eyeshadow! So, here you go:

Looks mildly interesting in the pan. Reddish with a green shift. Okay, what makes it special?

Feast your eyes:

How pretty is this?? It has such a delicious, delicate iridescent sheen, and that color shift! I don’t have anything else like this in my stash. It is utterly unique.

Come a little closer:

*__* Like a mermaid scale. On your eyes. (Mermaids are still a thing, right?)

Now that you’re convinced you need this, you can grab it here.

So, with that swatch in mind, can you really blame me for coming up with something like this?

FOTD: Changeling

Intense purple in a halo placement, and Changeling patted in the middle to catch all the shimmery light. It occasionally flashed green and it was SO PRETTY, I didn’t want to wash my makeup off that night.

The intensity of this purple made my eyes look so brown! I normally don’t think my eye color is very interesting, but this only illustrates the power proximity has on our perception of color.

The lips were a glossy ombré in a darker berry color. I actually originally made it deliberately messy, like this:

Like a creature that has just feasted on something…

Because why not? This is my answer to the too-perfect, crisp lip lines of Instagram makeup. Sloppy, glossy, and bleeding.
