How are you all doing? Today’s post is another look done with my trusted Tartelette in Bloom, aka the best eyeshadow palette ever!
This one’s all matte and a bit more smokey. I’d wear it just like it is on the daytime, and for night-time add in a darker shadow on the outer corner. It suits most skin tones and eye shapes, and it’s quite easy to achieve 🙂
As I mentioned on Monday’s post, the products I’ve used for my base are the same but I’ve changed the lipstick so let’s move on to the look!
To the inner half/two thirds of the eye, both on the lid and the crease, I’ve used Smarty Pants. Then I used Rebel on the outer third of the eye (also both lid and crease) and blended both colours really well so that I wouldn’t have harsh lines.
To finish the eye look off, I added Leader to the outer corner and, again, blended it really well so it would all appear seamless, like the perfect ombré look. I just love this eyeshadow, since it’s matte and like a deep wine colour, which brings out the green in my eyes.
As I mentioned above, if you wanted to add a bit more darkness/smokeyness, you could go in with Activist or Smokeshow and it would look stunning!
As for the lips:
As I was going for the all-matte look, I chose to go in with my favourite matte lipstick (and the only one I own since I don’t like matte lips at all) of all time: Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Bahama’, by NARS. I love this lipstick because: 1- the colour’s just perfect; 2- it’s matte but doesn’t feel matte/drying on the lips, it’s very comfortable to wear and lasts a long time on the lips!
And this is the finished look!
What do you guys think? I’m usually not a fan of an all-matte eyeshadow look but I think I’ll be recreating this one a lot!
