...kind of a Greek Goddess Inspired look

I'm calling this my " kind of a Greek Goddess Inspired look". I wore this look to a kind of a Halloween thing that I went to with my friends on Friday. Half of the people wore costumes and the rest didn't lol. As you can see in the photos below, it doesn't exactly look like a Greek Goddess with the gold leaf crown, white toga and all that jazz but I promise I did my  makeup with a Greek Goddess in mind. I think of a Greek Goddess with a flawless and bronzey face, light gold, silver eyes and nude lips with a hint on gold. There are so many variations on how do it but this is just my own take. I hope you like it.



I wore a loose and off the shoulder white shirt instead of a toga. For accessories, I wore chunky and layered matching necklace and bracelet instead of a gold leaf crown and a the messy and wavy hair of course for sexy look.

 Makeup
eyes:
-Almay Line Smoothing concealer (as a base on the eyes)
-Mac Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in medium deep (so set the concealer)
-Urban Decay Primer potion (as a primer to saturate the colors)
-Urban Decay Book of Shadows Alice in Wonderland 
  • Oraculum e/s (brushed above the crease with the blending brush and inner half of the lower lash line)
  • Vorpal e/s (applied all over the lids)
-Mac e/s in Spiced Chocolate (applied on the outer V with a crease brush)
-Miliani e/s in Almondine (applied on the brow bone as high light)
-Sonia Kashuk gel liner in Ebony (to line the upper lash line and water line)
-The Select false eye lashes

face:
-Dermalogica oil control face lotion (to mattify the face)
-Maybelline Instant Age Rewind face primer (applied next to help the foundation apply smoother)
-Revlon Color stay liquid foundation in Golden Caramel (applied with a foundation brush to even out the skintone)
-Almay Line Smoothing concealer in light/med (applied under the eyes as a highlight)

cheeks:
-Mac blush in Gingerly (applied on the apples of the cheeks)
-Milani Mosaic blush in Afterglow (applied on the temples and under the cheekbones for a bronze look)

lips:
-Say Yes to Carrots lip butter in Melon (to moisturize the lips)
-Wet and Wild lip liner in Willow (applied on the lip line and blend on the entire lips)
-Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick in Spotlight Beige (applied on the lips as the lip color)
-Urband Decay e/s in Oraculum (applied in the center of the upper and bottom lips for high light)




                                                                                          












...just a little cam whoring I did as I played with the different settings of my camera. The makeup changes depending on the lighting. I like the photos without the flash because it doesn't wash out the colors.




I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!!!
