I’ve never experimented much with smokey eyes because I find it difficult to make them work for my eyeshape. Lots of dark eyeshadow directly around my lashlines looks odd on me, I always go for darker colours in the crease. However, I’ve been admiring Lisa Eldridge other people’s smokey looks for a while now and I am determined to make this work for me. Here is a first attempt… I wanted it to work in the daytime, so skipped gel liner, etc.

Face:

– YSL Youth Liberator foundation in B30

– Maybelline Dream Lumi touch concealer in Ivory under the eyes

– Nars deep throat blush

– Nars Laguna bronzer in an attempt to contour my nose

– Nars light reflecting loose setting powder

Eyes:

– Rimmel Exaggerate eye-shadow primer

– Nars Fairy’s kiss eyeshadow palette (light lilac over the lid, matte grey in the outer corner/lower lashline/eyebrows, matte black in the centre of the outer corner, with plenty of blending in between)

– Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Uzi (grey) along top lashline

– Gosh Volumateur waterproof mascara (new love)

– Rimmel Scandaleyes nude eyeliner in the waterline (I tried a dark grey first – looked aweful!)

Lips:

– Nothing, just Nuxe Reve de miel lipbalm

Look of the Day: Shopping my stash

I get very excited about new products. Who doesn’t? But today I ended up using all my old favourites. It started with my thinking “Why don’t I use my beloved Naked palette anymore?” And then one thing led to another…

Face:
– Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B20
The only full size high-end foundation I own. Why do I always look for new bases? This one still has my favourite texture, finish and application.

– Nyx mosaid powder in Highlighter
Great highlighter. Not glittery at all, just a fine silvery shimmer.

– Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Exposed
Oh my gosh. So natural and beautiful. I used to use this every single day. Then summer came and with it my coral-peach obsession. This one is more plummy pink, great as we are going into Autumn.

– Soap and Glory solar powder
– Nars light reflecting loose setting powder

Eyes:
– Urban Decay Naked palette (Sin, Virgin, Darkhorse)
Amazing pigmentation, creamy texture. WHy did I ever stop using this?

– Eyeko skinny eyeliner
Helen Mirren signed my programme with this. If that’s not a good reason to use it, the easy application and staying power is.

– Rimmel Scandaleyes eye pencil in Nude
How could I forget about this instant eye brightener?

– Maybelline One by One waterproof mascara

Lips:
– Mac Hug me
Long before I got properly into beauty, this used to be my go-to lipstick. It is pretty much the colour of my lips. Why am I still looking at nude lipsticks?! I also love the Lustre finish.
