So if you can detect a little sadness in my eyes (or eye in this case) it’s because today’s look didn’t go quite to plan! Finn decided to cut his nap short by about an hour and he desperately wanted in on the action! I gave him an old eyeshadow palette and a (Lancome!)brush to occupy him but he was all about the Heat palette so I struggled big time! That plus the miserable weather in the UK today making for bad lighting the whole thing was pretty much doomed to fail from the get go! However, I’m not here to put a downer on your day and moaning isn’t really my thing! After some freaking out on my part the photos didn’t actually turn out half bad. Phew!
To prime the lid- MAC Soft Ochre
Illamasqua loose powder
NAKED Heat shades used
‘Scorched’ (all over lid)
‘Ashes’ (through the crease and outer ‘V’ also smudged under lower lashes)
‘En Fuego’ (through the crease)
‘Lumbre’ (over inner 1/3 of the lid)
As I didn’t want to use a liquid or gel liner for this look I used a black eyeshadow from the Zoeva Nude spectrum palette on a push liner brush just along the top lashline. I also used my new favourite mascara, Makeup forever smokey lash. And a little bit of Bobbi Brown creamy concealer (porcelain peach) through the brow bone. All in all, it turned into quite a simple smokey eye. It’s definitely one that you could get away with wearing in the daytime. I’m expecting an eyelash delivery from Amazon tomorrow so the rest of the week’s looks should be a bit more exciting!
I hope you are enjoying this series so far! See Day 1 here.Let me know if you have this palette and what your favourite shades and looks to do with it are!
