Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

There have been too many serious threads lately--let's start a fun one!

 

If there was no dress code and no social norms, what look would you rock daily? I would wear glitter eyeshadow non-stop!

Probably a dark or colorful smokey eye and my MUG Utopia pigment. 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

OMG some days I'm sure I would look like Effie Trinket or some mad woman from the Capitol in the Hunger Games. Being in my forties I can't always rock some of the more out there stuff without looking like somebody's mum that's having a midlife crisis. I definitely push the boundaries but would go more crazy sometimes if there were no social expectations for age appropriateness. Smiley Very Happy

This lady is our inspiration!

False eyelashes. Long, curly ones! Or bedazzled falsies, like the Dior Grand Bal ones! Obviously I should wear glitter shadow with those Smiley Happy

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I don't really have a set look to begin with. I'm the kind of person who wears purple lipstick out weekly or ombre purple lips. My eyeshadow looks will have color in them 3 out of 5 days in the week, and it's mostly shimmer as is!

 

I want to say the top two things I want to do right now are:

Black lipstick

Dark green lipstick.

 

The black lipstick I just need to buy, but the dark green one I'm still on the look out for. I was looking at Lime Crime Serpentina, but it's not on the site anymore.

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I would LOVE to rock a matte black lipstick but I'm also an introvert and couldn't bear the looks or even compliments!

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I feel like I beat the Portland Black Lipstick Company drum a little too often - but have you seen their color Metallurgy? It's a very dark green. 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

Oh I've been lusting after Serpentina AND Portland Black Lipstick Company black for months now!  I'd never wear either in public, but I want to try them SO bad!

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

You're a star. Wish I had the guts to rock purple lips on the daily.

I love Amber Heard…she's stunning!

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I'm living the dream - I don't really tone down my look and am not subject to any dress code (the benefits of working from home and tech jobs - notoriously lax on dress codes! I think ours is "are you street-legal?") PTA meetings are fun to drop in on, though - women seem to be very judgmental of one another if they don't fit the look of a group (and it doesn't matter if it's someone like me with an edgy look at PTA or my soccer-mom-ish friend that likes to join me for goth-club-nights - it's so frustrating!)

Things I rock now full-time that I've had to tone down or cover in the past:

Large, visible tattoos
Half-white, half-black hair and a 'hawk
The reddest, blackest, purplest, fuchsia-est of lipsticks
Smoky eye whenever I please - dark or neutral or purple, usually
Jewel-toned nail polish (I don't glitter but I'll metallic every now and again)
Mostly-black clothing (I wear purple every now and again) 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

If there was no dress code, and i had all the money to maintain it i would...

Wear 6 inch high heels everyday

Have yellow hair

show off my body

Basically i would dress like lady GAGA

 

 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

What a great dream. Sounds like we all want to live in The Capitol!

 I would go for a look like this:

Red lipstick is literally my obsession, and I love how simple yet smoky the eyeshadow is in this look as well. But I would add some false lashes just for fun! 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

Yup, I'm the same way being more restricted by time constraints and age appropriateness than dress codes.

The only makeup product I can't get away with at work is black lipstick, which is fine since I don't wear lipstick anyway.

 

My work has a dress code but no real makeup code. Makeup is "up to our best judgment" according to HR.

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I would rock eyeshadow winged ALL the way out, 80s glam status, heavy contouring, rhinestones, insane color combos, the whole nine. If Glam, Goth, and Sci Fi/Cyber had a weird tangle love baby, that would be my look. Smiley Very Happy

 

 

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

^5! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Pretend there is no dress code--What's your perfect makeup look?

I'd probably stick to a gold sparkly eye or some purple. Then just like a plum lip I think. I would quite like to have my hair (as mentioned below) yellow like Gagas… or when it was teal… or curly and light pink. Pretty much anything she wears I'd love to try.
