How are you all doing? Hope you’ve had a great week 🙂
Today’s post’s yet another makeup look (surprise, surprise!). There have been quite a few posts recently about Day to Night Makeup, meaning how to take a look from daytime appropriate to nighttime appropriate, so I thought I’d do one myself, and featuring my gorgeous new lipstick.
Since it’s still Autumn – though colder and colder – I thought I’d go with coppery eyes and berry lips. A lighter version for the day, which I’ve then amped up for the evening, smokying the eyes and applying a dark, vampy lippie.
These are the products that I’ve used on both looks:
♥ Foundation: Nude Magique Cushion, L’Oréal
♥ Concealer: Liquid Concealer, Wycon
♥ Powder: Fix & Matte Translucent Powder, Wycon
♥ Bronzer: Hoola, Benefit
♥ Blush: 105 Dark Rose, Kiko
♥ Eyeshadows: Tartelette in Bloom, Tarte
♥ Mascara: Smoky Extravagant, Make Up For Ever
Then I used these two lipsticks, the Dior for the daytime since it’s a berry-stained version of a ‘your lips but better’ colour, and then the vampy NYX for the evening.
For the day, I decided to keep the eyes rather simple. Applied Smarty Pants all over the crease, then Rebel to the outer crease/corner of the eye, making sure the were both seamlessly blended. After that, and with my finger, I applied Firecracker on my lid, and Funny Girl on top, blending the two, because I’m not fond of them individually but I love them mixed together. Finished the eye makeup with a smudgy line of Activist on the roots of the lashes and slightly winging it out, to give a lift to the eye.
For the eyes, I added Leader to the outer corners (both top and bottom), to smoke out the look. But I didn’t want it to be too intense, since I wanted the focus to be on the lips.
I bought this lippie at the beginning of the month for a few reasons: wanted this colour in my collection, had my eyes on the more expensive version of it (Nars Train Bleu) but this one was a dupe and I’d been wanting to try NYX for a while. Thought it’d be perfect for this post, though you could totally wear it during the day, as I’ve been doing since I got it! 😛
What do you guys think? Would you wear this look?
