Look In Habanera

Hello, another look for the week. This look will feature some base products I got from BECCA a while ago and a NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Habanera which I fell in love with the mint green and brown infused with multi-coloured shimmer. A very beautiful duo which can be used on its own.

Pardon my left eye, a little swollen.

 For face: Preped my skin with a thin layer of BECCA Resurfacing Primer which will minimise the appearence of lines and pores. After it sets, I applied a thin layer of BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal all over. Skip this step if you aren’t into shimmering skin – you can apply only on desired areas after foundation. I wanted an overall sunkissed look so I applied on my entire face. Apply foundation and set with powder – this will help tone down the illuminator.

For eyes: After applying the Urban Decay Primer Potion, I went in striaght with the green. Pat it on gently along my entire lid. The colour is very pigmented. Then I applied the brown on the outer corners and lower half of my lower lash line. Blend up to the crease and with what’s left on the brush, blend the brown shade above the green. I used MAC Velvet Eyeshadow in Vanilla to highlight the brows and a tiny amount of Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Powder at the inner corners of my eyes, just to sparkle them up a little.

I have chosen to use a brown eyeliner for this look. Finish the eyes off with some false eyelashes.

For cheeks & lips: Contour the cheek bones with MAC Matte Powder Blush in Darkly My Dear and brush a hint of Benefit Bella Bamba just above the contoured cheek bones. And for the lips, you can use any coral lip colours to spice up this look but I have chosen Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Deauville – a brown tone lipstick instead.

Thank you for reading.
