Laura Mercier Luster Eye Colour “African Violet”

Här  är en av mina senaste förälskelser, African Violet från Laura Mercier. En kall plommonlila ögonskugga med intensivt guld/kopparskimmer som på grund av sin alldeles lagoma färgintensitet och mix av varmt och kallt lär passa exakt vem som helst. Den är krämig och välpigmenterad, applicerar som en dröm och skimret sitter ordentligt på plats när väl skuggan är på huden. Alla rätt!

Finns att köpa på NK, Cow Parfymeri och Kiss and Makeup.


Here’s something that I’ve been loving, African Violet from Laura Mercier. A cool plummy purple eyeshadow with an intense golden/copper shimmer that because of it’s perfect amount of intensity and mix between warm and cool probably suits anyone. It’s creamy and well pigmented, applies like a dream and the shimmer is very evident once the shadow is on the skin. It’s perfect!

Available at Kiss and Makeup.


Here you can see how the shimmer changes the shadow depending on how light hits it.
Many of you ask how I create these animations, it’s made in Photoshop with a technique similar to this one.

On skin, over a creamy black base.

    It’s something like Trax (MAC) but in good quality, I think… Isn’t it? ^_^
