Halloween look: Colorful Phoenix

Hey, beauties!

Gradient effect on the cheeks. I added the "lower lashes" later.
Since today is halloween and creating my own phoenix look has been on my mind for a few weeks, I decided to try it out.
Ideally it would be perfect if you had some crazy eyelashes too: I would have liked to use something with red feathers. But since I didn't have any, I just added a few extra coats of mascara.
This is perfect last minute halloween look, because you can use eyeshadows-blushes-liners that you already have. Red  wig just adds to the effect, it is not compulsory.

What I used:
NYX HD eyeshadow base on my lids
NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk
Clinique High Impact mascara in black
Eyeshadows:
Lumiere eyepigment in jackpot(wet)
Yellow-orange-red is from 120 palette (1st edition)
Browbone highlight is soulmates from too faced romantic eye palette
Wet'n'wild gel eyeliner in black
Eyebrows:
dark burgundy-red eyeshadows from 120 palette (1st edition)
brow wax from NYX eyebrow cake powder
Cheeks: I wanted to create gradient effect so I used.
Fyrinnae highlighter in spotlight + a bit of orange eyeshadow
Sleek Blush by 3 in lace - orange and red tones.
Lips: keep them nude! You got so much going on in the "upper-department". 
ELF mineral lisptick in runway pink
ELF studio glossy gloss in ballet slippers 



The eyeshadow that I used for the eyebrows smudged a bit, when I put the wig on.. :( 

Do you celebrate halloween? What costume did you wear this year or what is your all time favorite?
Thank you for reading!

Hei, kaunitarid!

Kuna juba mitu nädalat painas mind mõte fööniksist inspireeritud meigist, siis otsustasin selle ära teha justnimelt täna, kui on halloween. Kahjuks ma kuskile teemapeole täna ei lähe, nii et pärast selle postituse kirjutamist võtan selle maha...
Ideaalis sobiksid siia hästi julgemad ja efektsemad kunstripsmed, aga kuna mul neid ei olnud, siis otsustasin lihtsalt mitu kihti ripsmetušši peale kanda, et ripsmed ikka välja paistaks.
Pähe panin punakat tooni paruka, aga see ei ole kohustuslik, lihtsalt nö aitab terviklikku pilti luua.  Midagi supererilist ma selle jaoks ei kasutanud - lauvärvid ja põsepunad kõik kodustest varudest, nii et spetsiaalselt midagi osta selleks pole vaja. Veidi tundsin puudust kuldsest lainerist, oleks ehk sellega kulmudesse(tiibadesse) paar kuldset aktsenti lisanud, aga ka ilma jäi tulemus päris lahe.
Huuled jäta sellise meigi puhul neutraalseks - niigi on kogu tähelepanu näo ülaosal.  Mida täpselt kasutasin, saate lugeda inglise keelsest osast. 
Kas teil on kombeks halloweeni tähistada ning kui jah, siis kelleks te sellel aastal kehastusite? Kes on teie lemmiktegelane? 
Aitäh, et lugesite!

  2. Väga lahe meik, nii ilus oranž värv laugudel! Mina tähistasin halloweeni sellega, et ostsin Rimist marineeritud kõrvitsaid. ;)
