Nude & Black Eye

So I promised last time I would post some looks that I created with my new products from my StrawberryNet post which you can find HERE. I finally decided on a look I loved and here it is! Sorry about my shiny nose in some pictures, the lighting was giving me grief :(



The main product that influenced me to go for a nude colour on the lid was my new Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer. I was reading the packaging and I noticed it said to wear underneath eye colour or on it's own. As you can see, the primer is slightly tinted and gives off a natural/bronzy colour when blended into the lid. I love this by itself! It just looks really natural and clean and it takes seconds to blend in. AND it's pretty amazing underneath an eyeshadow too. After a week of use, I can report, NO creasing here.


After applying the primer, I added a little black shadow into the eye socket and under the lower lash line. I blended this out furiously to make it nice and subtle and winged it upwards and out to lift the eyes. I used my new MAC Eye Kohl in Facinating in the waterline. I love how lighter colours in the waterline can make your eyes look bigger. Been using this pencil a lot this week! I also curled my lashes with my new Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler before I applied mascara. It's so easy to use and definitely makes a dramatic impact.




On my cheeks, I used one of my new NARS Blushers in the colour Sin. It looks quite pink in the photo on the left, but it's more of a plum-pink in the palette. It is SO pigmented and has a really soft gold shimmer through it. This will look beautiful in summer, I can't wait!


So all in all I'm pretty happy with my purchases! I wanted to wait a week to post this so I was definitely sure they worked for me. I hope you like my nude look and I cant wait to start filming these for you! It's really hard to explain how to do it in writing. Let me know what you think and if you have bought any new products that I need to know about too.
