2014-08-25 13.06.39Here is a subtle make up look, work (office) appropriate. I’ve paired up two eye shadow colours that I never thought they would go together, silver/grey and brown… but it worked.

2014-08-25 13.02.49I am wearing a shimmery grey eyeshadow that I’ve applied all over my eyelid and on the outer corners I have a matte dark chocolate brown which I’ve shaded inward toward the middle of my eye. I blended the two colours in the middle so that it wasn’t so defined.

Along my lower lash line, I applied darker grey shadow. Of course, black liquid eyeliner and black mascara.

The dark brown shadow is from my BH Cosmetics 88 eyeshadow palette and the greys are from the Hard Candy palette. The ones I’ve used I’ve marked here for you guys.

On my lips I am wearing a nude lipstick by Essence. Actually, I just discovered a new line of Essence lipstick at a local drug store. I’ve never seen them around before and they’ve had some really nice colours and I was all over that!


I really love Essence cosmetics but I must say although the colours are great of these lipsticks, they last all of 5 minutes and the pigmentation at least of the nude one is not the greatest, which is strange because they are called Long Lasting Lipsticks and claim to last several hours without drying out…. totally wasn’t the case for me.

 I don’t know about the other shades as I’ve only purchased the nude. This one is called Nude Love.
