Unlimited, our lives are unlimited

Unlimited, our lives are unlimited - Wicked

It's been a long time since I've posted a makeup look inspired by lyrics, and for some reason I cannot get enough of the wicked soundtrack right now.  The first time I saw Wicked was the 16th of November 2006 and it was really a life changing night.  I don't think I've ever been so inspired by something in all my life, and I'll never forget that night.  I was lucky enough to see Idina Menzel in all her glory and I guess no-one really can do it better than her, you can never do better than originals.

Not only is this look inspired by Wicked, but also by the beautiful Illamasqua.  To say I love this lipstick is an understatement, and it really stands for everything Illamasqua is about, which is great.  I remember watching an Alex Box interview and Alex mentioned something about teal being an opposite of red on the colour wheel, and something about tricking your mind with colours.  I'm not entirely sure with the science of it all, but what I am sure about, is how perfect this lipstick is for any skin tone.

I guess this look is something Elphaba (if you don't know the Wizard of Oz or Wicked - shes the 'wicked witch of the west') would wear in OZ, that is if Illamasqua was sold in OZ, and It most likely would be.  Who knows, maybe Glinda buys skin base foundation?!

After all, her skin is flawless!

So if you want to try this beautiful teal shade for yourself, get down to an Illamasqua store or counter now! 
For now here's a little link for the lipstick (you can buy online aswell) ;)!

I always like to end a post on some kind of moral, but I don't need really need for this lyric, it says it all.  Our lives are unlimited, and never forget that.
