Brown Smokey Eye + Nude Lips

Hello, lovelies!

How are you all doing? Today, as promised on Monday, I bring you the post all about the makeup look I was wearing on my previous post. If you haven’t read it yet, it was a First Impressions on the products I bought recently, and you can read it here.

So today I’m sharing with you the remaining products I used to achieve the look. It was the look I wore on Christmas Eve, and one I’ve worn quite some times afterwards already, since I love it so much. It’s just flattering – for all skin tones, eye colours and shapes -, suitable for everyday of for a night out. The most versatile look I’ve ever shared here on the blog, probably. And you could pair it with a bold lip or a nude one, which’s what I went for.

Here’s everything I used:

I’ve already shared with you most of the steps I followed on Monday’s post (here), but for foundation I went with Bourjois’ Healthy Mix Foundation, since I wanted light to medium coverage and a ‘healthy skin’, natural finish. For bronzer / contour I used the same I always do, Benefit’s Hoola. Then I applied a touch of blush with the ‘105 Dark Rose’ blusher by Kiko.

Naked 3, Urban Decay

For eyes I chose the Naked 3 Palette, by Urban Decay, and went in with the shade ‘Nooner’ (a deep mauve) on the crease. Then I drew a very messy, medium thickness line with my black pencil (Khôl & Contour in ‘ultra black’, Bourjois) close to my top lashes, and on the outside corner of the lower lash line as well. After that, applied ‘Mugshot’, the most stunning, metallic brown in the world! I did that with the Cream Shader brush by Zoeva (see Monday’s post), which I’ve also used to smudge the black pencil I’d previously applied.

I then added a tiny bit of ‘Strange’, the lightest shade in the palette, to the inner corners and topped the whole thing with two coats of mascara – Benefit’s Roller Lash.

Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick in ’61 Naked’, Milani

For lips, I chose to go with this one, since I wanted a ‘your lips but better’ sort of colour and I thought this one was exactly that. Turns out it wasn’t, it was more on the nude side of the spectrum, but I like the way it went with everything else.

Here’s the final look!

What do you guys think? Would you wear this look?

Love,

    1. Totally! I do, however, think that this is a look that you could wear everyday, since it’s not too made up. It’s simple, yet classic and timeless. And it suits absolutely everyone! 😉 xx
