How are you doing? Hope you’ve all had a great week!
I know, I know, here I come again with another makeup post, but this time of the year inspires the makeup junkie in me and I can’t help it.
I looooove how this look turned out! It’s so out of my comfort zone (well, it’s still a smokey eye so not that out of my comfy zone), since it’s with a colour that I don’t usually apply. And it’s cool-toned, which is not my usual.
So I thought I’d share it with you, and maybe inspire to get out of your comfort zones and be risky. After all, it’s just makeup, it washes off.
Here’s all I used:
As I mentioned on my previous post, my base has been the same for a few months now, only changing the foundation depending on my skin’s needs at the time. I find that these are some of my favourite products ever and they work well on my skin.
For the eyes, I ventured! I applied Haux all over the crease, then went in with my Nabla palette that I put together about a year ago (here for more details). I first applied the deep purple shade to the outer corners, blending it in towards the center and making sure there were no harsh lines, just a nice transition to the purply-taupe from the crease to that deeper purple.
Then, the big change for me, I applied the shadow in the centre of the top row, which is somewhere in between a green and a silver. Not my typical colour but I was obsessed with how it looked! I then applied the three colours, in the same order, on the lower lash line.
I finished the look by making sure there were no harsh lines, then applied some liner (winged, of course) and mascara.
For lips I wanted something a bot more natural, since the eyes were already a tad heavy, but that still showed, and that was appropriate for this time of the year. This lippie is perfect for that, I love it!
And here’s the big reveal!
What do you guys think? Would you wear this look? Tell me all about it!
