FOTD Featuring Shu Uemura Painting Liner in Citrine

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 13 - 2009

No laughing… this has to be the boldest ‘look’ I’ve ever done.  And no, I didn’t leave the house.

This Shu Uemura Painting Liner in Citrine (Part of the Primtribe Fall Collection) is B.E.A.U.TIFUL, but how the hell do I create a toned down look with something so bright?

Is it destined to sit gathering dust?  I love you, beautiful liner… but there aren’t enough Mardi Gras’ in the world for me to wear this look to.

Suggestions most gratefully received!!

    Ohhh you SHOULD have a left the house! You look stunning! You don’t need to create a toned down look with it if it’s summer. That make up is perfect for now. Maybe when it gets cooler, pair it with a copper to dark brown eyeshadow? Beautiful. xxx

  6. Haha, you lot are brilliant!! I love that you’d all wear this out with pride. Hand on heart, I’d have to be off my face to brave something this bright in public – but I’ll totally rock it whilst doing the washing up.

    Stunning!! To tone it down, I would stay with neutral look and do a tight line with this gel liner on the upper lashline. I do that with Shu green, pink or blue ones. Just a pop of color lol.

  8. @Natalie, thank you very much! Great advice, ‘ll need to practice my ultra fine line lots to achieve subtlety!
