For those who have been reading my blog a bit longer, I think it’s clear that I love playing with make-up, especially with eye shadow. Why do I like it so much? The eyes are I ne of the most outspoken parts of your face, but also the part you can manipulate the most. Meaning: you can look totally different when wearing eye shadow, and you can variate in so many ways. Eye shadow is just like lipstick, a great accessory to a full look and can definitely uplift your outfit.
I made this look to go with one of my previous outfits (you can see it here) and I received positive reactions on my make-up. I knew I wanted to use my bright red lipstick Ruby Woo from M.A.C. because my outfit was rather neutral. When using bright lipstick (especially red) it is important to keep your eyes a bit more tempered and natural. The risk of looking cheap when you combine a heavy eye look with red lipstick is quite high, so try to avoid that.
I used my The Body Shop Smoky Eyes Palette I recently won on Natalie’s blog to create this look. Yay, I finally won something! I never tried make-up from TBS, so I was surprised about the quality of this palette. Ok, it is not as pigmented as my Naked palettes, but it was still very good. The colors are nice and shimmery and they stay on for a long time.
The look: I used the upper left color from the inner corner of the eye lid to 2/3rd of the lid. I applied the upper right color in my crease and afterwards, I applied the lower left color on the outer part of my eye lid and blended in. I finished with my usual eye liner from Catrice and my Volume Million Lashes Mascara from L’Oreal. And that’s it, super simple right? :-)
