Smokey Smokey...

I have made myself up doing what I love most.. a smokey eye and a nude lip :) But this time I used colour! How exciting? ok, perhaps not! But, I had fun anyway. :)



Face: BB tinted moisturiser & Eyeko bronzing cream. (Loving this combo) BeneFit Boing as under eye concealer.
Cheeks: Nars multiple in Orgasm as blush, South Beach as contour - this wasn't enough so I used BB cream blush stick in Dusty Mauve. Barry M bronzer. YSL Touche Eclat as highlight.
Lips: Gosh Darling, Mac Underage and Mac Oak lipliner - I then added a tinge of the rosey one, not sure why, im just weird like that! :)


Eyes: Mac Cornflower pigment all over lid, Mac Teal pigment on outer V, Mac Club eyeshadow on outer V and blended into crease, Bourjois Blanc Diaphane on inner corners. Mac Carbon to softly cut the crease. Everything has been super blended hence the colours are not so vibrant! Mac blacktrack fluidline on waterline. Chanel exceptionnel mascara.

Moving onto the hair, why oh why didn't I get a conical wand sooner? I avoided getting it because I really didn't mind using my hair tongs as I thought it gave the same effect but quicker, I was wrong! The conical wand gives you more "beachy" waves as opposed to ringlets.


My one is by Babyliss and is £24.95 from Boots! I'm not sure what size it is but basically if you want a thicker wave, just grab more hair!


Btw I have not needed to dye my hair again :) it's become alot more of a softer dark brown and i'm quite enjoying it - FOR NOW!

Nice colour combo, the eyeshadow really complements the lippy. Does the conical wand heat up quickly? x

Love the look! I've been searching for a conical wand here in the US...and no luck! :/ i really don't want to settle for the enzo milano.. don't think is worth it!

Wuschel said...

makeupmadb said...

Pretty look, the eyeshadow compliments your necklace beautifully :)
I have that conical wand and LOVE it! I have layers and I've never been able to achieve curls with a tong or GHD's that I'm happy with. This was totally different, it's fantastic and now I want to use it all the time! Perfect hair for summer.

Loving the color of your hair...looks like it has more dimension...and that necklace is divine! I really hope you eventually do more colors on your lips...I know you love the nude lip, but your skin color looks amazing against a fresh pop of color! :) Xo

The whole look is gorgeous, hun! I admire you for using colors! I'm such a neutral person, sometimes I'm intimidated by color, but I really like how yours is. Maybe I'll give it a go =] And your hair looks fabulous! I've been unsure about the conical wand but you may have just convinced me!
