How are you doing? Today I leave you with a make-up look, another smokey eye: my favourite kind of eye make-up. So I grabed my eyeshadow palette from Sephora and started playing around with it and quite like how it all turned out 🙂
Let’s start with the face…
Primer: Porefessional, Benefit
Foundation: Studio Fix Fluid, MAC
Concealer: Pro Longwear, MAC
Powder: Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, MAC
Blush: 105, Kiko
Bronzer: Hoola, Benefit
I wanted my make-up to last all day so I chose to go with MAC’s foundation as it’s very long-wearing and gives quite a full coverage.
This is what I used on my eyes:
Eyeshadow primer: Primer Potion, Urban Decay
Eyeshadow palette from Sephora (it doesn’t say anything on it, not the name of the palette nor of the eyeshadows)
Eye liner: Super Liner, L’Oréal
Mascara: Roller Lash, Benefit
Brows: Gimme Brow, Benefit + a bit of eyeshadow
I was given this eyeshadow palette over a year ago and absolutely love it for creating more elaborate looks for special occasions. I did swatch all the colours so you guys could see them properly:
(top row, from left to right)
(bottom row, from left to right)
I started by applying number 1 all over the crease, in order to give the eye a bit more definition. Then I went in with 3 on the outer corner of the eye (lid, mainly, but also crease), making sure I blended everything really well. I followed that with 2 (my favourite eyeshadow of the palette) all over the lid, blended everything really well, added a bit more of 3 to the outer corner and blended again.
On the lower lash line, I applied 3 first, from the outer corner all the way to the centre. After that, I went in with 2 all the way from the inner corner to the outer, smoking out the darker brown I had just applied.
To finish the eye look, I drew a winged line with my L’Oréal liner, I applied my new obsession – the Roller Lash mascara – to my top and bottom lashes and then I did my eyebrows.
You could also go in with an eye pencil on the waterline (black, nude, you name it!) but I chose not to.
And for the lips…
My new favourite lip combo: MAC’s Twig with Urban Decay’s Liar Lip Gloss on top! I think it looks sooo pretty ❤
