It was my New Year Party at work the other day and I was in a rush to pull together a look that would complement the purple-berry coloured dress I was wearing. This look is extremely easy and requires very little skill (honestly!)
To start off I primed my eyelids with MAC Prep + Prime Eye in Medium to neutralise the discolouration on the lid. I then used Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the lid. I brushed Bobbi Brown “Ivory” eyeshadow all over the eyelid as a neutral base then took the ELF Baked Eyeshadow in “Burnt Plum” and blended this into the crease, outer V and two thirds of the eyelid. I wing-lined the top eyelid with Urban Decays Liquid Liner in “Perversion” and finished with Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara on the top eyelashes only. The reason I didn’t do anything with the bottom lashes is because I was wearing a dark lipstick and didn’t want to over-do the look.
My eyebrows were outlined first with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in “Spiked” and then filled in with KIKO Eyebrow Expert Kit in Deep Brunette (this is a fabulous product by the way).
Next I completed the base. I used MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW40 and blended out with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This foundation is high coverage and photographs really well. To cover up my panda eyes I used MAC Pro-Longwear Concealer in NW35 (another fabulous product). As there was already a lot going on my face I didn’t want to use a blusher, so instead I used ELF Studio Baked Bronzer in St Lucia to bronze all over and contour my nose and cheeks.
As a final touch I lined my lips with NYX Lip Liner in “Deep Red” and applied a few coats of “Black Dahlia” from OCC on my lips to reach the colour below >>>
