Monster High Monday: Rochelle Goyle


A wee technical issue (well big one actually) meant I didn't have time to post this yesterday. My MHM this week is the beautiful Rochelle Goyle, a (Parisian) gargoyle if you couldn't guess. She's very chic in pink, grey and black-I love her outfits!  I'm also a fan of the pink and blue streaked hair and and I love that she has speckled skin to really look like stone. I didn't realise my doll had such a dodgy eye until these photos though. The paint isn't in the right position.
Anyway, as with last time I totally struggled to find a matte pale pink eyeshadow. It was either too frosty or looked the correct colour in the pan, but applied too pale. I have literally thousands of eyeshadows and was becoming exasperated when I couldn't find a good dupe. In the end I went for the same palette I used for Lagoona. The lips came much easier, I literally tried two colours and the 2nd was a perfect match.
So on the face there's the usual; Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 005 with Dainty Doll concealers in 001 and 002. I added Urban Decay powder blush in Quickie (a sweety bright pink) on cheeks and finished with Clarins Ever Matte Mineral Powder Compact in Transparent Opal.
Over Too Faced Shadow Insurance (I've been finishing this tube for weeks now, it's never-ending!), I applied the pink shade from Hard Candy Eye Shadow Quartet in Pixie, over the lids and past the crease and also along the lower lashline. I used a thin brush to apply a line of MAC 'Showgirl' eyeshadow roughly following the crease and winging outwards. Other than finding the correct colours, the eyes were actually really simple. I would've liked to add a highlighter under the brow to soften, but I'm supposed to be stone afterall.  I added lots of YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil and Lancome Artliner for the big flicks, with Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless on my lashes.
For the lips I lined and filled in with V-sculpt (Victoria Beckham) liner in 702 Cool and the glossy looking lipstick is No7 Vital Brights in Blooming Pink which was limited edition a few seasons ago.  My lips look darker in the photos than Rochelle's, but in the flesh, they looked identical.   
I had a lot of fun with the pretty colours this week. The pinks looked fabulous against my new purple hair.  As usual if you would like to see the full look without pinkish/lilac eyes (the closest I could get to Rochelle's bright pink), then head on over to The Shoe Girl Diaries.  Did you like the sweet pink look this week?
