So since posting my favourite eye shadow yesterday, I was asked if I could demonstrate the look I explained in the post. So when I woke up this morning and was getting ready for uni I just felt like doing it today! My foundation today is the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow in Fair 2 (i’m still trying the samples out to decide which colour I like best but this one does seem to be a particularly good match)! I also used my favourite Clarins Instant Concealer in 01 which I wrote about way back on Day 2 of my makeup challenge! As you can see this combo really does create quite a flawless texture to the skin and I am desperate to order the full size of this amazing foundation! My brows are my usual Benefit Brow Zings in Light and my blusher is also the predictable Benefit Coralista. To give a bit of a warmth to the skin I used the Soap & Glory Solar Powder which did the job nicely.
So onto the main event, the eyes! I primed my eye lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and I only used one eyeshadow for the entire look and I achieved this by sweeping Mac Woodwinked all over the lid and using a clean brush to buff the edges out. I then went back to woodwinked and pressed the colour over the inner and middle sections of my eye. As you can see this really does create a lovely smoky look with quite minimal effort! I then used my Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen to create a nice winged line. I smudged some of the woodwinked eyeshadow onto my lower lash line to continue with the smoky effect. I used Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner in Grey to line my upper waterline and applied a couple of generous coats of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I also did quite a bold red lip (which unfortunately you can’t see in the picture) but I used a red No 7 Lipliner and Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Lipstick 3 hours post application, the lips (and everything else for that matter!) are still going strong!
As you can see from the picture, this colour really does make my blue eyes look brighter, more blue and more awake! If you try this look let me know as I would love to see the result!
