Today for Makeup Wars we’ve decided to show you our favorite spring makeup trends, straight from the Runway (or in my case, the Red Carpet/X Factor). Yes, I fully admit that I thought Cece Frey was a tad kooky when I watched the X Factor with her constant painting of leopard print on her face (and on occasion, her legs). But, obviously my girl Mila can do no wrong!
I tried my own version of this (on the left) and tried to be more subtle with it, but looking at the pictures, what was I thinking? Can leopard on your face ever be subtle??? No. Obviously not. Especially since I had made it purple! I made a little photoshop on the right showing that really, I should have gone big. Go big or go home! I think of this as a temple makeup accent, that goes down a little and has a subtle hugging (but not really wrapping) around the eye.
To create this look, I used a few liquid eye liners, the Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner that Milani had sent me for review. I used purple, let it dry a little, and then added the black wrap around with black liner. It dried quickly, the color was vibrant and didn’t want to budge once applied! But, it was easy to remove with cleanser and a wash cloth.
