Gossamer Wings Makeup Tutorial

Allow me to confess something: I’m an absolute sucker for anything iridescent, sheer and gauzy. I love the play of light and fire combined with translucency. Some of my favorite stones are Opals, Rainbow Moonstones, and Labradorite. One of my favorite things about the Kat Von D Alchemist palette is the many different ways I can use it to achieve these effects: a sweep of color is like a veil of iridescence;  Buff it on, it packs a punch. I also happen to love a great neutral palette from a Indie brand that just “gets me”. Today I’m sharing with you a great cool-neutral look with the Lunatick Cosmetics Labs Supernatural Palette, then layering colors from the Alchemist Palette over to create a look that, combined with the winged liner, reminds me of gossamer fairy wings. If you’d like to recreate this look, below the pretty pictures is a full list of products for the eyes and lips so you can use what I used or find dupes, and if you recreate any of my looks, please share with my on instagram with #vintageortacky and/or tag me!

    I have eyed this forever. You convinced me…also a couple of the contour singles. So glad we no longer have to buy the mega palette. Gotta catch up on your makeup posts. Been neglectful.
