Smokey purple

Idag har solen bytts ut mot strilande regn så jag passar på och sminkar mig lite roligare när jag slipper smälta bort av ökenvärmen.

Jag använde mig idag av tre skuggor från Makeup Academy, intensivt duokroma nr 9 över hela ögonlocket, sotade kanter och eyeliner med nr 13 och highlightad inre ögonvrå + brynben med nr 1. Behöver jag än en gång säga att de är fantastiska?


Today the rain is pouring down so I took the chance to do some more inspiring makeup now that I won’t melt away from the heat.

I used three Makeup Academy eyeshadows today, number 9 which has an intense duochrome all over the lid, smoked the edges out with number 13 and highlighted the inner corner + browbone with number 1. Do I need to tell you how awesome they are?
