Christina Aguilera - Lady Marmalade Inspired Look

Hi Everyone,
So the weekly challenge theme on Makeup Geek is Christina Aguilera inspired, I know I've just done one for Not Myself Tonight but I really wanted to do a Lady Marmalade inspired look - I think it's safe to say I've been in awe of the makeup in this music video for a ridiculous amount of time. I think I'm a sucker for anything to do with Moulin Rouge - I'm one of those annoying people who sings along to all of the songs when you watch it... hehe.

I've come to the conclusion that I love looking at Christina's makeup looks in awe, but hate trying to re-create them, they just don't turn out the way I want them to! I thought I'd post it up anyway seeing as it took about an hour to do :)

Inspired by:

Products Used:
Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation
ELF Blush/Bronzing Duo bronzer as contour
Milani Loose Translucent Powder

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Milk
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Black Bean
Sleek Graphite Palette - Black (satin finish not totally matte)
Milani white shadow from Domino quad.
Matte red shadow from ebay 120 palette, mixed light pinks used to blend out the red on the cheeks also.
False Lashes (top) from eBay (Seller:Glamlabel
L'Oreal Super Liner - Carbon Gloss

Revlon Colourstay lipliner - Red
MAC - Lady Danger lipstick
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Black Bean blended around the outer edge.

Rhinestones are assorted sizes of Swarovski crystals left over from bedazzling my phone... haha, I like sparkly things what can I say. I don't have my nose pierced those are rhinestones too in the shape of a flower, attempting to mimic the flower shaped nose ring she wears in the video.

All this talk of Moulin Rouge really makes me want to watch it now!
