Hi, everyone! Given the epic proportions of my order, it's no surprise that the ColourPop Looks of the Day keep rolling out. It continues to be an utter pleasure using all of the goodies- there's not a weak one among them! Today's look is bold, colourful, and a bit retro- loosely inspired by Charlotte Tilbury's Glamour Muse makeup, but at a much more budget-friendly price.
The first star of this show is ColourPop's Super Shock Shadow in Lace, a vivid violet with blue and red shimmer. I love the way it catches the light and complements my brown eyes! I applied Lace heavily over my lid, gradually blending up towards the crease. I also swept it along the outer half of my lower lash line. For some definition and a neutral touch, I applied ColourPop On the Rocks shadow, a warm brown, on the outer corners, and Urban Decay Naked eye shadow (from the Naked Palette) above the crease as a transition shade. With a swish of black eyeliner and 2 coats of black mascara, the eyes were done!
I wanted to keep the complexion flawless, but dewy, so I used my brand new Clinque Even Better Foundation in Alabaster, going easy on the powder afterwards. I highlighted my cheeks with ColourPop's Super Shock Highlighter in Highly Waisted and blush in Jelly Fish. They both add such a beautiful glow without overpowering the rest of the look.
Finally, the second standout- ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lip Colour in Mars. We all know that I'm s sucker for a bright, hot fuchsia lip and Mars is no exception. It's in-your-face but oh so flattering!

And a few more shots of the look:
As we transition into Fall, sultry, colourful looks like this one become more appealing. The '70s are definitely a huge trend in the fashion world, so why not in makeup as well!? ColourPop Lace really reminded me why I love purple shadow- it's such a fun way to play with colour minus the maintenance and shock factor that comes with other bright hues. And while I certainly didn't need any new hot pink lip colours, the pure matte finish of Mars makes it unique in my collection. The Ultra Mattes definitely aren't my favourite liquid lipstick formulation (controversial, I know!), but the saturation and long-wear of Mars still make it a true gem.
Do you like wearing purple makeup in the Fall? Are you a fan of the '70s fashion/makeup trend? What is your favourite liquid lipstick formula?
Have a wonderful day! xo
