Bitch perfect

Today I wore another Laura Mercier Caviar Stick on the eyes, Burnished Bronze is a darker reddish/coppery bronze (read my review here). I chose to boost the red tone even more by wearing Garnet from the LORAC PRO Palette dabbed in the center of the lids, it’s as if they were made for each other! The colour impact of them combined is amazing. On the inner corner I’m wearing a mix of Gold and Nude from the same palette.

Moonlight

After todays post about the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks I took a picture of the colour Moonlight when worn all over the lids just to show you the 3D effect of these eyeshadows. I darkened the top lashline a little on the outer corner with brown shadow, but the entire dark crease/pale lid effect is just Moonlight. Best way ever to do super quick eyes!

Dim Infusion

Today I did a quick smokey eye by sweeping my apricot blush quite heavily almost up to the brow, packed my brow powder on the lids, smudged some black liner along the top lashline, some brown liner on the waterline, shitload of mascara and done!

I haven’t worn Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion in a while but I’ve fallen in love with it all over again recently. A pale very warm apricoty peach that pairs GORGEOUSLY with bronzed cheeks. When worn on the lids it really enhances green eyes.

Blått är helt klart en av de svåraste ögonskuggsfärgerna att bära, men två tricks som hjälper är att bära den med en solid liner för att definiera ögat och en varm skugga att sudda ut kanterna med så skuggan inte blir grönaktig. Bara smacka på den och låt den ta den plats den tar, det kommer bli skitsnyggt!

Jag har haft det sena 60talet/tidiga 70talet i den mentala inspirationsmappen på sistone, så jag gjorde en lös tolkning av det! De rundade Twiggy-60talsögonen är inte alls smickrande på mina ögon hur mycket jag än vill att de ska vara, så jag lade en ren 50talsvinge med en trashig undre fransrad istället.

 

Blue is probably one of the hardest eyeshadow colours to wear, but two tricks that help is pairing it with a solid eyeliner that brings definition and a warm eyeshadow along the edges as blending help for it to not turn greenish. Just smack it on and let it take the place it needs, then it will look stunning!

I’ve had a serious thing for late 60′s/early 70′s makeup lately, so I did a loose take on it! The rounded 60′s Twiggy eye shape doesn’t flatter my eye how much I ever want it to, so I did a clean 50′s eyeliner flick with a messy bottom lashline instead.

Recension, Skönhet

Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow “Mango”

Är det inte en OTROLIGT tillfredsställande känsla det där, ni vet när man lite bitterljuvt drömt ihop en pryl/ett scenario/en upplevelse osv. utan egentliga förhoppningar om att de ska existera, och så stöter man faktiskt på dem? Jag hade länge en idé om “den där ögonskuggan” i något slags guldskimrig aprikosorange nyans som ser knallig och glad ut utan att dränera mitt face på färg, rätt motsägelsefullt då blockorange är en svår nyans i allmänhet. VIPS stod jag där på Grand Parfymeri i Göteborg under förra sensommaren och mitt öga fångades av Phyto-Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow från Sisley i färgen Mango. Jag tyckte då att det var befogat att gå och gräma mig över denna skugga i ett halvår, så nu efter jul var det bara dags att ta tag i saken. Jag ska ha gladaste ögonlocken i vår, för jag har den perfekta skuggan för det! Jippi!

Isn’t it INSANELY satisfying to have a bittersweet dream of a thing/scenario/an experience/etc. without really expecting it to exist, and they you find it? For a long time I had an idea of the perfect golden apricot orange eyeshadow that looks bright and happy without draining my face of colour, which is quite a contradiction as block oranges are hard to handle overall. And then, there I stood at Grand Parfymeri in Gothenburg while my eye catched Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eclat Eyeshadow in the colour Mango. I then found it completely logical to whine about this eyeshadow for half a year, so after christmas it was time to do something about it. I’ll have the happiest eyelids ever for spring, now that I have the perfect eyeshadow for it! Yay!

Worn all over the lid with black liner and mascara, simple as that! I love how oranges work with all eye colours. My grey-green-blue eyes seem more grey than usual with this eyeshadow for some reason, and just imagine what it would do to ice blue eyes! Yum!
