FOTD: Duochromey Goodness with Darling Girl

I was complaining on Twitter that my camera can't capture duochromes properly and while I was right, the photos didn't turn out as bad as they looked on the screen. Obviously the duochromes are more pronounced in person but it doesn't look awful, at least! Unicorn is just gawjussss.

I've had this color combo set aside for a few weeks and didn't have the time to try and use it. It takes me ages to do a look with Pixie Epoxy... lame, I know. I didn't have a lot of time this morning but decided to try it anyway! Tonight I will be filming a video for The Makeup Heroes for my favorite items from indie companies and favorite scents, so I figured it was appropriate to wear some indie stuff, ya?

ANYWAY, onto the look!

Quick Disclosure: I did edit some mascara smudges on my eyelid in 2 of the photos. Just a simple slight blur and tiny pixel copy and paste to mask it a little.

  2. I love the way you look here....like so fresh and beautiful with a hint of glow...LOL I know it doesn't make sense but in all you look beautiful!

  3. you've used all of my faves!!! I esp LOVE my little pony and unicorn! :D

  4. Your eyes look amazing! Seriously so gorgeous!

    Love Britt xxx

  5. That iridescent pink color is very pretty. I can never quite get my camera to capture the 'true' colors of my makeup either, but thank goodness for photoshop!

  6. Very pretty and that lippie is soooo flattering on you!

  7. I fight with my camera all the time. I want the colors in my pics to look vivid...just like they do to the naked eye! I know how you feel!

    Your look is very pretty! Your skin looks amazing!

  8. Beautimous! Your contouring looks amazing, unless you just naturally have awesome cheekbones...which is equally amazing. I have such full cheeks I have to contour like it's my job. :-(

  9. So pretty! Love these colors! And the blue gloss looks amazing over Up the Amp!

  10. You look gorgeous as always! I can't wait to get Up The Amp. :D

  11. Beautiful, the lips look amazing and I love that duochrome shadow :)

  12. I have a lot to say so you get it in list format! :)

    1. This looks fabulous! I love the color combination between the eyeliner and eyeshadow. And I really find it refreshing and honest that you put disclosures for a simple messy mascara cover up.
    2. Hooray I'm your 600th follower on GFC! :D
    3. I found you via Wendy/The Make Up Heroes youtube channel. I <3 TMUH; it makes me want to make response videos, even though I never make personal YT vids. :)

  13. Thanks so much everyone for the support! Love you all.

    @Judikins: THANK YOU :) That made me so happy. I was out yesterday all day so didn't even know that I hit 600... welcome! Also, thank you for supporting the collab channel!

  14. This is really pretty! I love the eyeliner and the lip combo.

  15. Pretty, I really love the lips :3 my camera can't photograph duochromes at all, it likes to make them look like I have a big bald patch with no shadow :|
