Illamasqua I’mperfection = Speckled Eyeliner

Well, I did say I would be having a go at Illamasqua’s speckled eyeliner look in my recent post about their new I’mperfection collection. For possibly one of the first times in the history of my blog, I’ve actually done something I said I was going to do and in pretty quick time, too! I had to though, I just loved the look so much.

Naturally I used my Illamasqua Precision Inks in Scribe* and Abyss to achieve the high contrast black and white look, and although my feeble attempt looks nothing at all like the promotional images I still really like it. It’s a true statement liner look, and I got quite a few compliments when I wore it. Confused compliments I’ll admit, but I like that – keeps things interesting, right?

Although I don’t often wear bright lip colours, I thought the best way to offset the liner would be with a hot pink and Illamasqua’s new lipstick in Immodest* fit the bill perfectly. It is, as with most Illamasqua lipsticks, a little bit drying to make sure you balm up underneath and over the top!

It’s definitely very a very noticeable and unusual look, but I find it strangely wearable and would actually wear it on a day-to-day basis. How about you – would you rock the speckled eyeliner look?

  1. I love the look of EVERYTHING in this new collection. I totally agree with you that it’s something very new and different but actually VERY wearable. It’s only a little shocking because it’s new, but I’m pretty sure this will be a standard style in the near future. It’s funky and fun but not harsh or in your face. You did a great job :)

  2. Gosh, this is so well executed Fee! It looks so so pretty too – and so good to see a promo look translated into an everyday look. LOVE it with the lipstick too, it’s like a fresh take on a monochrome/dollybird 60s look.

  3. I really love this! It’s definitely a unique look but very interesting and cool! Just need to find a white liquid liner now so I can try it out :) sadly can’t really afford Scribe at the minute. Love that you paired it with the hot pink, lovely look :) x
