Humid....

Last night I wore "Humid" which is my favourite green Mac eyeshadow. I teamed it with "Brun" e/s which is becoming my favourite crease colour and "Vellum" e/s which is a white with a blue/purple duo chrome finish which completed the look for a more blended exotic look.



Step By Step....

1) Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2) Apply Mac "Humid" e/s on 3/4 of lid.
3) Apply Mac "Brun" e/s on the outer corner of lid and blend into the crease.
4) Apply Mac "Humid" e/s on the lower lash line.
5) Apply Mac "Vellum" e/s on the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone to highlight.
6) Dab Mac "Vellum" e/s onto the centre of the lid for added dimension.
7) Blend everything together with a fluffy blending brush.
8) Apply Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in "Zero" on the upper lash line and smudge with "Humid".
9) Apply Chanel "Exceptionnel" mascara in Smoky Noir to the upper and lower lashes.
PS: I forgot to line my waterline, you can line it with anything you like for a more striking look!

Here's how the look came together.....



On my face I used Revlon Colorstay mixed with Bobbi Browns tinted moisturiser applied with a flat top kabuki brush. I contoured my cheeks with Benefit's foundation faker in deep. I used Illamasqua "Synth" (lilac) e/s on the apples of my cheeks which was a very bad idea as I was in a rush and didn't stop to think. The glitter was way too much to use as blusher, Next time I will try Mac's "Beautiful Iris" which is a matt lilac.

On my lips I am wearing Illamasqua sheer lip gloss from the Dystopia collection, which deserves a post of its own, it's a gorgeous pink / lilac gloss which is very pigmented with a duo chrome finish! I'm also wearing a nude lip liner from the brand "Pastel" which I am also loving!

Your lashes are out of control!!! I'm going to have to get the Chanel mascara.

@Jo thanks hun, it's my favourite colour!

@Esmeralda thank you :) but it's not just the mascara as my lashes are quite long anyway. But the mascara does help to intensify. However I have found that the mascara gets better after a few uses.

Oh Emm Gee! Your lashes!!! I NEED LILASH!!!!!!!!!

bubblegarm said...

Thank you very much girls :) X

@Dye-A-Graham aww thanks, I don't think i'm losing that much weight for you to be able to notice it in my face. But, ive changed my skincare so my face is more matt looking, which immediately makes me look slimmer as the shine isnt reflecting of my face to create more angles.... at least I think :)
