~Over the Top FOTD~ Antipodean Beauties Challenge



It’s time for another Runway inspired Antipodean Beauties challenge. This weeks theme is ‘over the top’ and I thought the Dior 2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture makeup was appropriate. Rainbow eyes and a vampy lip seem pretty over the top to me!


I think that the model’s brows was covered and then drawn higher for the original look but I decided not to for my look. Covering the brows would allow for more space to fill in and, if I ever recreate this again, I think I would go to the trouble of covering my brows.


The look calls for many bright shades so I decided to use my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils and Sugarpill shadows. The shades I used are swatched above and from left to right they are NYX Jumbo pencils in Hot Pink, Yellow, Rocky Mountain Green and Electric Blue. The Sugarpill shadows are Dollipop, Buttercupcake, Acidberry, Midori, Mochi and Afterparty. The product swatched on the end is the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Purple.





I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils as a base and patted the Sugarpill shadows on top. I also applied Sugarpill Tako (white) to the inner corner and underneath the blue on the outer corner to anchor the brighter colours. I finished up by lining my eyes to add some definition.



For the lips I used NYX Cocoa lip liner topped with Wet’n’Wild Megalast Lip Colour in Cherry Bomb.

      Thanks Olivia! You always leave me the nicest comments 🙂 The shape was unintentional (turns out my tape laying skills aren’t that great) but I like it.
