My look today is mainly to test my new Blackground Paint Pot. I've seen so many great looks with Blackground p/p but I wasn't sure this is a must have in my collection. After seeing lollipop26's post I decided to give it a try :)
Black color base supposed to add intensity and depth to any color you use on top, depends on how much black added, u create multiple brownish gradient by mixing black with orange, so the color appears richer...
I used the orange from Well Plum quad from forever ago. The orange color in this quad has very bad color payoff so I can really see if the P/P does its work.
Select Cover up NW30
Studio Finish concealer NC35
MSF Natural medium plus
Nuance mineralized blush
Blackground P/P - base
Espresso - brow, Outer V
Shroom - Brow bone, inner highlight
Courage(orange) - all over the lid
Blitz & Glitz FL
CG Lash Blast
Lip Fusion lip plump Clear
Naked Space Lipgloss
The color definitely looks more intense on top of Blackground P/P, and it gave a nice smoky kick to the look. But... the texture of this baby really sucks, unlike other P/Ps, it requires lots of blending otherwise it shows up patchy and uneven.
Overall, I like the effect but it does require more works, and sometime you lose the true color by adding too much black or blending too much. I had Sable on top of too much Blackground P/P yesterday, it lost the warm plumy tone and looks more grayish like Satin Taupe... I could just use Satin Taupe instead...
Still, I'm happy to add this to my P/P collection. The effect and versatility worth the extra works imo, great for night time or smoky looks!
I also have some F21 goodies to share! I've been very easy on cloth shopping for awhile since I still have 12 lbs. pregnancy weight on me, ugh...:( I should definitely work on that before I buy more clothes... Anyway, I got these long sleeve shirt and hats that I thought will work with what I have easily... and I like the bold belt that can make a statement with some simple long shirts and dresses.
Now me, hubby and little Jacob all have the same style shirts :)
