Anyway, enough babble, here's my look:
Chanel Vitalumiere - 10 Limpide/Nude
MAC Studio Finish Concealer - NW20
MAC Powder Blush - Harmony & Pinch O'Peach
Urban Decay Primer Potion - Original
Sleek Makeup Palettes - Storm (dark green, black) & Circus (electric blue)
Sephora ColorPlay 5-in-1 Palette - frosty white
L'oréal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara - Black
MAC Lipstick - Jubilee
The eyes are definitely my favourite part of this look. In fact, I've worn it on two separate occasions already. I started off with some UDPP then I slapped on the dark green eyeshadow with a rounded shading brush (Sigma E55) from the lash line to the brow bone. Then I applied the electric blue colour on the lower lash line with a Sigma E30 pencil brush and applied some matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner to join the green and blue together (I used a Sigma E70 angled shading brush). Next step: blend, blend, blend! For this, I used a fluffy brush from hana k that I've had for ages. I blended the edges of the green shadow and smoked it upwards and winged it out as well. Then I applied a shimmery white eyeshadow from Sephora to the brow bone to highlight (Sigma E25 blending brush). I cleaned up the bottom edge with an F70 concealer brush from Sigma, curled my lashes, applied L'oréal Voluminous and the eyes are done!
As for the face, I applied Chanel Vitalumiere with a Sigma F60 foundation brush and concealed with Studio Finish concealer under my eyes and around my lips with my fingers. I used Harmony to contour with a Sigma F40 (suck in cheeks and apply to the hollows) and Pinch O'Peach was applied with a Sigma F50 duo fibre brush to the apples of my cheeks. A few swipes of Jubilee lipstick and the look is complete (complete review of Chanel Vitalumiere and MAC Jubilee coming soon).
I really hope you guys enjoyed this and I'm wishing you all a fab week ahead!
