As you can tell from pretty much all of the beauty looks I have shared on my blog, I’m don’t normally experiment too much in terms of funky eyeshadows or unexpected lips. I pretty much stick to a natural eye and a bold lip whenever I feel adventurous. I know, super lame!
But a few weeks back Estée from Essiebutton posted a look she created using a navy blue eyeliner and that sounded really interesting to me. She has, like me, blue eyes, and with the help of that thin blue line they popped even more! So obviously I was intrigued and stormed straight off to my closest drugstore to find something similar. I ended up with a Limited Edition product by P2, but Essie recommends the Stila liner.
Apart from that I kept my face really neutral, as always, and just applied a bit of a nude lip. For foundation I used my beloved Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in shade 4, one pump gives my face an even appearance without looking too done. In order to make the eye really pop I tried to cover up any darkness under my eyes as good as possible for a fresh and awake look. For that I applied a mixture of my NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and MAC’s Pro Longwear concealer in NW20. Then onto the brows, I have talked about the Catrice Absolute Eye Colour eyeshadow in the shade Starlight Expresso before which is a dupe for MAC’s Copperplate and I like to fill in my eyebrows with. I have been told that for blonde eyebrows a grey shade often works better than blonde-labelled brow pencils as they are often too red- or yellow based. And I do find the result to be looking quite natural and not grey at all. On my lashes, as always, the In Extreme Dimension mascara by MAC.
Lastly I applied the Clarins Instant Lip Perfector in the nude shade 06 – rosewood shimmer. I absolutely adore this product, it makes the lips super smooth even hours after application and gives a nice shine without looking too glossy.
