Focus On is a work in progress. Have you ever talked yourself out of buying a product because the color was too odd, and you wondered how often you would really be able to use it? Or, you know those colors you LOVE because of some hidden versatility that you never imagined when you bought it? I do that ALL of the time. In the interests of loving what I HAVE, and learning its limitations, rather than relying on the influx of new colors, I will be doing this post every Saturday, focusing on a new color from my collection, with examples of past work, ideas for other uses. Please feel free to suggest colors you wish to see, or uses for the ones listed, or let me know what your favorites are for future posts.
Urban Decay Asphyxia may well be one of my oldest makeup colors. It’s a classic. Applied over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, for true to pan color. This is a light lavender, with a cool blue-ish pearl, and almost a hint of grey. There’s a touch of pink, that really emerges over certain primers.
You can mix and match these effects by using a colored base over half the lid, and a standard base over the other half, to intensify elements of the color. A blue base draws out the purple. A pink base draws out the pink.
