Neon Eyes




Finally! Here's a fierce neon look using the pigments from MAC that I purchased a while ago. You can see swatches of them here. Unfortunately they're a bit challenging to work with. As you can see on my pictures it look rather mottled.
So, it was pretty hard to get them even and I must admit a few cursing words slipped out of my mouth. These pigment should not be used if one's in a hurry, that for sure.
But I love the colours and how bright they are. I used the incredible Stick It! from Medusa but somehow I think I manage to over-saturate the primer hence the uneven result! Nevertheless, I will try again but with another not so sticky primer!

What do you think? Any experience working with these pigments?

Products used:
Primer - Medusa's Stick It!
Shadows - Sleek Palette in Acid, Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Tako, MAC Pigment Poudre Éclat in Magenta Madness, Neo-Orange & Full Force Violet
Eyepencil - Biotherm Define Eyes in 125 
Eyeliner - Illamasqua's Precision Ink in Abyss
Mascara - Illamasqua Masquara in Raven
Eyebrow - Illamasqua's Fine Pencil in Eerie 

Enjoy!

I have used Magenta before, but only as an accent color in my crease. It does have a LOT of fallout, but it is so beautiful! Awesome look!

I don't like neon on me just because it doesn't suit me. But NEON suits you so well. I admired.

I understand what you mean by "challenging to work with"! I have both Magenta madness and Neo-orange and though I love them so much 'cause they're cool and bright and blah blah blah I actually need to relax and calm down before applying them! :D However you managed to create a stunning look, love it!

Lisanne said...

I find truly matte eyeshadows a lot more difficult to work with so I know what you mean. But I have to say it looks absolutely stunning. So the end result was worth the cursing ;)

I ADORE this colour combo!! I have Neo-Orange as well and it IS a b*tch to work with, I can't say I have any tips to make it easier!

Ruthy said...

What the hell?! How did I miss this earlier? This is fucking rad. Sorry to swear but holy crap. How did you blend them so beautifully? They are tricky ones to use those matte pigments. I adore this, so inspirational! x
