Hotties! I got to participate in another fun collab with the ladies of Indie Makeup And More and the theme this time was the seven deadly sins. I got Greed, which is totally fitting! Now, when I was originally brainstorming this look I was going to go with all green and gold and maybe draw a money symbol on my face. In other words very literal.
I decided to think outside the box and when I googled greed I remembered that another name for greed is avarice and avarice is the Orange Lantern in the corps. Green Lantern of course is very well known but the orange lanterns with the power of avarice, well that seemed like a cool idea! I decided to go with it….oranges, golds and yellows it is! This look is all about excess, extreme greed…..the preciousssssssssss.
Face: I started with an airbrush base, flesh colored foundation with lots of gold and a little bronze mixed in. Morgana’s Fire Opal powders finished over the whole face. Lots and lots of sparkly powder.
Cheeks: I added a little straight orange to the foundie mix and added to cheeks and topped with Aromaleigh Sunday Girl.
Lips: Morgana Solar Flare packed with MAC’s Marigold glitter.
Eyes: Brazen’s Cheeky foiled on lids and blended under lower lid as well with Brazen’s Buzzed in crease and blended out and also applied underneath eye as well. Meow’s Yellow Snow applied to upper brow bone with Brazen’s Scorching applied under brow and on inner corner of eye. Urban Decay Whiskey liner on upper and lower lids with two coats of black mascara on lashes. Kat Von D Deadhead orange shadow on brows.
I wanted this look to be too much of everything…too much orange, too much sparkle, too much shimmer, too much jewelry. Not a pretty look, but an interesting and slightly gritty look none the less. Greed typically isn’t pretty and I wanted to portray that just a bit but still have it be somewhat ‘glamorous’. I topped this look with a super duper bright orange wig, a champagne sequin sweater, a huge vintage necklace and all the warm colored sparkly bracelets and rings I could find. I hope you like it!
