Club Look: Matte vs. Shiny

A few months ago, I went to a special alternative event where everyone got all dressed up for the evening. The dress code was such that people could be a bit risque in their attire if they wanted to. My outfit was going to be super shiny so I decided to play around with some contrasting textures in my makeup. I went for matte eyeshadow with shiny eyeliner and lips. I wanted to keep the look neutral but added a bit of drama with some thick false lashes. I added a bit of teal eyeliner to match the only bit of colour in my outfit.......black pasties with teal trim. I was looking for plain black ones but ended up ordering the teal ones instead just for fun!

FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.

LIPS: NYX Black Cherry Lipstick, Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Flash in 982 Black Tie Plum, NYX Deep Purple Lipliner.

BROWS: MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

CHEEKS: Sobe Botanicals DuoChrome Blush in Nouveau.

EYES: Base: UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Eyeshadows: Annabelle Vanilla Chilla, Buff Naked, Foxy, and Ebony, shadows from the WnW Lust palette, and Sugarpill Darling (used as liner on the bottom lashline).
Eyeliners: UD Perversion, Lime Crime Uniliner in Quill (IT'S SHINY!)
Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Star.
False Lashes: Ardell Fashion Lashes 136 Black.






As I mentioned above, this event allowed people to dress in some risque attire. Thus, since I don't think anyone wants to see any more of me than they really need to, I shall describe my outfit rather than post a picture. I wore a long mermaid-style black latex skirt from Ego Assassin with a black halter style top with transparent panels also from Ego Assassin. Under the top, I wore teal and black pasties from PlastiKat and long black latex gloves from Polymorphe. For shoes, I went with my Jeffrey Campbell Night Nails. The synth dreads were made by me.

How was your weekend?


  1. Your outfit sounds hot and your face pic looks good enough to leave the rest for imagination... ;) I especially like the glossy eyeliner and the matte eyeshadow. Need to try that for myself one day!

  2. I love the curved flick, sexy matte and teal pop with those fine long lashes! Your outfit sounds amazing, I'd love to wear a sheer top with a sexy bra underneath for something special if it allowed!

  3. As usual your makeup looks awesome ;)
    I love the colored lower lashline , nice contrast with the liner and neutral shades :)

  4. Well that sounds like a really brave outfit!!!

    And the teal part in the look was great but you least of all should have gone for some more lashes!! I know you can wear them like no one else!!! Still very classy but too much lashes is never wrong, right??! ;)

  5. Loooove that lip color! Gorgeous as usual!:)
