illamasqua inspired speckled eyes

Hello lovelies, today I tried a little experiment. I know, I know, I am slightly late with this trend. I have been meaning to try it out for ages but just never managed to find the time. Illamasqua are always a brand that intrigues me, their collections and values are amazing and encourage people to be unique, which is so refreshing to see!

Now I don't own an awful lot of their products, its not lack of wanting to, its just nowhere near me sells them so I have to rely on online swatches. Personally I am more of a hand swatch kind of girl, so tend to stock up as soon as I find a counter. I was browsing online and came across a tutorial for the speckled eyeliner look from the I'mperfection collection. I decided it was time to try it out and added my own twist on it.

I used l'oreal superliner luminizer eyeliner in 'blue' as the base and added the speckles with illamasqua presicion ink in 'glister' to make it look like cut out sections of eyeliner. I do need to hunt down a white eyeliner to try this look properly though.

What do you think? Is speckled eyeliner your kind of thing?
