Hi, loves! I’ve finally had time to edit a post for the Try It Out Thursday series. I love doing these posts and I have a long queue of ideas for the series. However, they take a lot of time to put together because they usually include several looks in one post. Today I have a recreation of the popular Illamasqua Speckled Eyeliner look. This look is part of Illamasqua’s new collection: I’mperfection. They’re selling a Speckled Eyeliner bundle on their website that includes both a black and a white liquid liner.
I adore Illamasqua for their creativity and makeup artistry. I’m not a makeup artist but I decided to recreate this look just for fun. It’s quite easy to do since it’s supposed to be messy. Two things I wish I had done differently though: Used a different liquid liner. I used the Bourjois Liner Pinceau which has a really fine tip that gave me jagged specks instead of round ones. Used a different lipstick. I wore this with MAC’s Velvet Teddy. I think a bold lip color would have looked better since the eyes are very neutral.
I actually found speckled eyeliner to be surprisingly wearable. Probably because I have hooded lids and most of the speckles remained hidden unless I looked downwards. I did get “looks like a spider” and “peacock makeup” comments (LOL). They were all in good fun though. Let me know if this is something you would try. Also, I reached 1000 GFC readers yesterday!!
