Parisian Pink

I’ve worn stupid amounts of dark brown eye pencil lately, I apply it in this thick smudgy cat eye shape and smudge it with my fingers, dab some highlighter on the inner corner and pack LOADS of mascara on. Mascara smudges, asymmetrical lines, uneven blends? Don’t care. Totally obnoxious and I love it!

To get that dirty golden sheen I first line the top lid with an intense sparkly gold eye pencil (Make Up Store Czar), then I go over it with a dark shimmery brown (Make Up Store Seduced By The Dark) on top. It makes the result a lot deeper and softer than if I would do it the other way with the gold on top of the brown. This method works great with purples, greens, any glistening shade with something darker and more neutral on top.

Frenchie

Would you look at that! A makeup look from last month that I forgot to post. Sadly I can’t remember what I wore on my skin/brows, but the lips are ColourPop Lippie Stix in Frenchie! I LOVE this intense red, total cartoon lip.

Laura Mercier Eye Glacé “Wet Sand”

Eye Glacé från Laura Mercier är en tunn vattenfast krämögonskugga, helt ny för sommaren, som kommer i tre olika nyanser. En i silver, en koppar och denna vid namn Wet Sand som är lite smutsigt guldgrön. Alla nyanserna är transparenta, inget färgspackel för ögonen utan snarare en tunn “wash” som du antingen kan lägga på ett naket ögonlock för en mjukt gnistrande look (vilket jag gjort flera gånger redan, se hur det ser ut nedan!) eller över annan makeup för att ge extra tryck. Skimret är riktigt fancy, det är inte det där tunna avmattade som budgetglittret utan det gnistrar verkligen som diamanter! Skuggan låser snabbt in och rör sig inte ur fläcken så det gäller att jobba rätt snabbt. Perfekt sommarprodukt för den som vill att makeupen ska kännas viktlös, snabbapplicerad och hållbar i värmen.

Shoppa på t.ex. svenska Cow Parfymeri eller brittiska Space NK.

 

Laura Mercier Eye Glacé is a thin waterproof cream eyeshadow, new for this summer, that comes in three shades. A silver, a copper and this one called Wet Sand which is kind of a dirty greenish gold. All shades are transparent, not opaque and spackle-like at all, just a sheer wash that you can apply on bare eyelids for a soft sparkly look (which I’ve done many times already, see how it looks below!) or over other makeup to give it that little extra. The shimmer looks really fancy, it’s not that thin matte budget glitter, it sparkles like diamonds! The shadow sets quickly and doesn’t budge so you’ll have to work with it quite quickly. Perfect summer product for those who want weightless makeup that’s easy to apply and wears well in the summer heat.

The eyeshadow comes in a squeeze tube with a little window at the bottom where you can see the colour.

The tube feels hygienic and you don’t have to worry about squeezing out too much.

I’m repeating myself: Viseart Neutral Matte Eye Palette 01! So versatile! Today I’m wearing all the warmest shades in a messy smokey eye with the soft black as a smokey liner. Plus the lipgloss with the funniest name ever, still can’t handle it.
