This is a simple look featuring the Ocean Scene Eyes in EX 01 Shelly Ocean which I bought in June. The first time I wore this palette, I experienced some fall-outs with the darkest shade so I have used a base since and it helped.
For face: I started off by applying BECCA Resurfacing Primer to smoothen out the pores around my nose and lines under my eyes. Then I used Make Up For Ever HD Primer in #2 to take away the redness around my cheeks and chin. I have been testing out Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and I would like to do a look using it. It doesn’t provide much coverage – meant for the “good skin days” but overall, I like this foundation – more about it in another post. I used Lancome Teint Miracle Multi-Lights Touch Corrector as a concealer under the eyes and set everything with Giorgio Armani Micro-Fil Loose Powder.
For eyes: I prepped my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and went in with the beige under my brows followed with the taupe all over the lid – up to the crease. Then I applied the deep brown on my lower lid and blend upwards and outwards to create an angle – you don’t have to do that, go with a shape that suits your eyes. Blend the deep brown with the taupe but try not to overlap as we want the taupe as a transition colour. Apply the gold along the lower lash line to “lift” and brighten up the eyes.
Line the upper lash line with a dark brown eyeliner, here I am using Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 20 Espresso. I also lined my lower water line with Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 47 Rose Platine. Finish off the eyes with some false eyelashes.
For cheeks & lips: I started sculpting with Benefit Hoola (sorry, I forgot to include that in the picture below). Then I have chosen a bright orange blush – applied it higher than usual, along the cheek bones for this look. I went for a natural nude beige lips to finish the look.
Thank you for reading.
