I love playing up my eyes. My favourite part of doing make up is doing my eyes. Whether you are doing a look with eye shadows or just keeping it simple with a winged liquid liner, eye make up is very important to me. Sure, a nice lip is too but to me personally, eyes are EVERYTHING.
I used to be such an eyeshadow whore (pardon my language). I always experimented with different colours, mixing and matching. I feel like I sort of grew out of it you can say. Most days now I just do a liquid liner and mascara and I love that look. But I do have my days where I still go all out.
This past weekend I was wearing a lot of bright colours so I did my make up very earthy and nude so that I wasn’t overwhelming all over.
(Pictures of all the products used below)
FOUNDATION: I use Vichy Dermablend (review of it in previous blogs). It is the best foundation ever in life. It creates a complete flawless look and believe it or not I have rosacea but my face looks smooth and blemish free does it not?
EYES: I used Essence eyeshadow duo that consists of a pearly/creamy shimmery shadow and a chocolate brown eyeshadow.
I applied the pearly/creamy eyeshadow all over my eyelid and then with an angled brush applied the brown eyeshadow on the outer corners of my eyes working my way in towards the middle of my eyelid, blending it.
I used Rimmel Exaggarate Black liquid eyeliner and my all time one and only mascara, L’oreal Telescopic black mascara.
LIPS: NYX Matte Lipstick in Nude (more of a peach nude)
CHEEKS: Lastly I applied just a bit of MAC’s Warm Soul on my cheek bones.
This is one of my favourite looks. It can match with pretty much anything you are wearing and it can be done for a daytime or nighttime look.
Til next time !
