♕ Fairy Queen Make Up ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Goldust Collection}

I'm really excited about the look I'm going to show you today! It features my favourite piece of the Goldust Collection by NABLA Cosmetics aka the Dazzle Liner in Klimt. Since I first saw it, I knew I had to do a look just for it, focused on it, to show and enhance its beauty.

Even thought I didn't have any particular inspiration, I realized this look gives a lot of fairy vibes - with all the tiny dots and swirls. The more I look at it, the more it makes me feel like a Fairy Queen - if I were a fairy queen, I would wear this makeup look every single day... Hence the title ;D

After the first test run look (here), where I managed to use all the Goldust products I bought, I decided to do the Klimt focused makeup I was dreaming of since day 1.

At the very beginning, I thought I would go for nude lids, barely contoured - to make the gold liner stand out - but, on a second thought, I decided to apply an eyeshadow that could get along with the liner. So I chose Danae, my second favourite product from this collection - and my favourite eyeshadow so far. It has a bronze base and it's filled with gold glitters - in one word, perfect for this looks.
(Needless to say, all the products used for this look are by NABLA Cosmetics, unless where stated. Check the full products list for further details!)

First thing first, I applied the Crème Shadow in Morning Glory all over the lid as eyeprimer (I really, really like to use it as eye base lately). I applied Glasswork on the inner corner (still disappointed by its colourless base) and Danae all over the lid, outer corner and crease included. I added some depth by using Unrestricted on the outer corner & crease - just a subtle touch, as I didn't want the look to be really intense...
I used Narciso as transition shade, to create the most evanescent blending ever; on my brown bone I used - guess what? - Antique White.

Done that, the most exciting part: time to use Klimt *_____*
First of all, I drew the classic winged line, with a sharp edge on the inner corner. Then I got creative and traced swirls here and there, in a fairy-like pattern, and then I placed some dots on both inner and outer corner. The result is amazing, thanks to Klimt's unique duochrome colour: it changes from gold to pinkish to red, depending on the angle and how the light hits it. Seriously amazing, the fact that this liner is limited edition is unforgivable.

I completed the look with the usual drill: black eyepencil on the waterline and lashline, false lashes, mascara and brows.

That'is it! Pretty simple, as you can see - Klimt is the key product here, does half of the job on its own, effortlessly. I can't stress enough how perfect its shade is - but also its texture, not too liquid nor too dense. I wore it for hours, like the whole day, and it lasted, stayed in place without fading or tearing off. The little brush that comes with it's perfect for my taste and skills - very thin, flexible and precise. It allowed me to easily draw lines, swirls and dots, and I mean easily. 100% happy with it and 100% sad that it isn't permanent ç_ç
Why, NABLA, why?

Danae, on the other hand, it's the perfect companion for Klimt here - not too dark, not too light, very bright and shiny - yet it doesn't overwhelm the liner. Way better that plain nude lids, in my opinion ;D
