Face of the Day SUQQU

To be honest, it took me a few attempts with EX-30 Hekikai to find the perfect placement. The looks I’d seen with it thus far were all so subtle and pretty, but I really wanted to do something that showed off the colours to their full, nearly-neon potential. (You had to know this was coming, right?)

Though I initially thought the standout colour for me would be the shimmery bright blue, I ended up falling hard for the matte chartreuse. It wasn’t love at first sight though – applied lightly to my lids it looked like a cross between a yellow stain and a healing bruise! But once I patted it over a white base, it showed up as an unapologetically bright acid green, just as it appears in the pan.

To achieve the level of intensity you see here, I used both white and black pencil eyeliners as a base and really, really packed the colours on with an arsenal of small flat brushes. As with all SUQQU shadows, these blend like a dream…but if you want oomph, you have to resist the urge to go back and forth with your brush and just press on the pigment in a slow dabbing motion.

For a better look at the colours in their natural state, my review and swatches can be found here.

    This look is amazing. It’s a shame the palette was so limited.

      It is a shame. I wish they had made these permanent, or at least produced a larger number of them.

      Thank you so much Annabelle! Unfortunately I don’t have time to film youtube tutorials right now, but it’s definitely something I’m working towards.
