Beauty Inspiration: Futuristic and Dystopian

I have to admit that I am slightly obsessed with dystopian novels, and  love all those futuristic and manus x machina themes. And, yes, I do have a board on Pinterest.

It may have something to do with the fact that I did culture studies back at uni and read lots of philosophical theories on the subject.  Whatever it is, I have been always fascinated with the futuristic beauty.

Here is actually a photo I’ve posted on Instagram recently.

Eyes Of The Day With Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge

I promised to show you how Illamasqua’s Liquid Metal in Surge looks like on the eyes so here is the photo. My aim was to show you the easiest way you could wear it, the one you can create even when you have minimum time in the morning. But with Illamasqua products you can create so many looks, you just have to use your imagination 🙂

So here are the products that I used:

  • Korres Eyebrow pencil #2.
  • Light eye shadows under the brows and to all over the lid, I used MAC skintone 1 which is a LE.
  • Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge.
  • NARS shadows in Night Clubbing which is one of my favourite  eye shadow and you can see the swatch here.
  • Hypnose mascara by Lancome.
  • Le Crayon Khol by Lancome in Brun Noir which is my HG, review here. I used it on the eye waterline.

So what do you think? Would you try such look? I’ve already tried some very creative looks using Surge but wanted to share the easiest one with you. The one you can wear every day and spend minimum time creating it.

You can get Illamasqua from Selfridges.

Liquid Metal in Phenomena by Illamasqua. Review and Swatches

As I promised here is the first review of Illamasqua products. This time it’s liquid metal in Phenomena from the latest collection called Dystopia.


What is written @ the official Illamasqua website about this product:

Prepare to dazzle with this gloriously rich and highly pigmented metallic cream. Use to adorn eyes, face and body, and apply with fingers or a brush. Release your inhibitions and illuminate your alter ego.

£16.00 , 1.5g (0.05 OZ)

Available in:

  1. Solstice, Molten gold
  2. Enrapture, Molten bronze
  3. Phenomena, Molten silver

So what do I think:

I was very excited to try this product but I was a bit afraid because of the cold silver colour. I have warm brown eyes and I usually wear warm colours. But I totally loved how Phenomena looked on eyes! I felt in love with this product from the first sight. The design is amazing and stylish the products is very pigmented and you need a small amount so it will last you for a long time.  Plus I really loved how it smells (and it is very important for me).

My recommendations:


You can put it on with brush or just fingers. I’ve tried both ways and it’s very easy to use it with your fingers, so don’t worry.

Be careful when you put it on  and don’t touch anything if you put it on with your fingers because you may end up with glitter all over your face and clothes.

You can use liquid metal on your eyes, lips or somewhere else. I’ve tried it on my lips (on the balm) and it looked great!

A base is essential when you wear liquid metal because it will crease without a base. You can also put it on  a shadow. I would not recommend to put it all over your lid because it doesn’t look very nice at the end of the day.

My conclusion:
