Primer – TFSI
Base-MUFE Aqua Creme # 12
NYX – Burgundy Pearl & 24 Karet
Marbella – Permanent Eyeliner in Black
Another goodie from my Australia swap – Australis Paparazzi Perfect HD Eyeshadow in Snap Attack
Although this palette is very shimmery it actually creates very wearable ‘work appropriate’ looks. Here is just one combo that I do. This look has a little bit of all five shadows, over TFSI and MAC Painterly paintpot, finished off with Marbella eyeliner (from one of the MyGlam bags) and Lancome Doll Lashes.
Here a swatches of the individual shadows.
They are shimmery/frosty, soft and blends easily.
The only cube I didn’t use in this look was Go Violet (dark purple)
I applied MAC Painterly Paintpot over TFSI and Tint it Pink (light pink/champange color) all over the lid, Live Lilac (top right) in the creaae with a little bit of Think Pink (top left) in the outer crease. I love all my shimmer cubes but I think this one maybe my overall favorite 🙂 If you haven’t seen my initial review/swatches check it out here or my first look here. I finished the look with MUFE eyebrow corrector as eyeliner and TBS #10 to soften the edges under the browbone.
A EOTD I wore to work one day last week.
Black Radiance Sunrise/Sunset, L’Oreal Amber Rush, Jordana eyeliner Eggplant, Jose Maran mascara (I didn’t like that much).
Here is a first look using the Body Shop’s new Lily Cole Shimmer Cube Palette #24. To see swatches check out yesterday’s post here. For today’s look I used Chanel’s Illusoire, Live Lilac all over the lid, Think Pink in the crease and a little of Go Violet on the outer lid. I used Jordana’s Fabuliner in brown, Lancome’s Doll Lashes mascara and TBS #10 to blend out the edge of Think Pink.
I’ll have a different combo for tomorrow 🙂
Giving some love to one of my favorite color combos: pink and grey
L’Oreal Infallible shadow in Sultry Smoke over
Estee Lauder Smokey Twilight
Then from my Coastal Scents 88 Metal palette a
light and dark pink to complete this awesome look.
This look I wore to work a couple of weeks ago. I really liked it and have worn it a few more times. I haven’t bought a lot of makeup recently (does nail polish count?) so I decided to give some love to my neglected Inglot and BodyShop shadows.
Clockwise: Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes (awesome mascara), MakeUpForEver Brow Corrector (best liquid eyeliner), Inglot e/s # 402 (taupe with pearl finish), #360 (taupe in a matte finish), Horizon Blue (Body Shop shimmer cube #17) and MAC Imaginary Paint Pot (base) plus TFSI as primer.
I am trying to be very good and not buy any makeup, although I do have my eye on the Clarins Summer palette. So shopping my stash I decided to use a very neglected item my Chanel Bronze Universal. I wanted to see if it could be used as a n eyeshadow base.
This look – TFSI (primer), Chanel (base), Sunrise/Sunset (Black Radiance), Brown (Dior Silver Look) and Buck (N1)
12+ hours later after a very long sweaty day. I ended up going to the mouse room (in the basement of one of the research buildings) for a couple hours and then in lab running around.
I’d say it held up pretty well with only minimal creasing and the colors were still vibrant. So I have another use for the Chanel bronzer apart from highlighting since it’s a bit too light for my skin tone.
