Seven Deadly Sins: Lust

Hi everyone! The illustrious Yasumi at Worship at the House of Blues recently had the brilliant idea of doing a Seven Deadly Sins challenge for Halloween. I was the last sin, Lust. Here’s my take:

I actually had quite a bit of trouble coming up with a good FOTD for this look… I think in a lot of peoples’ minds Lust is one of the easier sins to personify in a face, but I also found it one of the more boring ones. In the end I went with traditional and did a dark smokey eye and red lips. Have to say – pretty proud of myself for getting the lashes on though!

Face: Dr. Brandt Pores No More, NARS Sheer Matte in Stromboli, MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel; Cheeks: NARS Exhibit A, MAC Improvise; Lips: Laura Mercier Cranberry; Eyes: Shu Uemura P Beige, Bobbi Brown Velvet Plum, Espresso, Guerlain cream colored shadow, HIP Gold Charge, UD 24/7 Underground, K-palette 24 hr eyeliner, Ardell lashes, Kiss Me Heroine Make mascara, Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown;

See the other 6 Sins:
Yasumi @ Worship at the House of Blues – Wrath
Yumeko @ Bittenbefore – Pride
Justine @ Sakura Lovely – Envy
Jian @ Pinkfish Tart – Gluttony
Vicky – Sloth

Thank you to Yasumi for organizing this challenge! :)

    Thank you Yume!! & hahaha, I think I have to agree with Yasumi – you just haven’t found the right red yet! Everyone can wear red! :D

    & oh, that’s actually the metallic cream Guerlain shadow (from one of their quads, I’ll go look up which one it was when I get home) over the HIP gold liner so it pops more hehe. :)

    I like what you did with your eyes and the eyelashes looks great. You have amazing lips and combined with the red lipstick made it look more lustful.
