Look In Onyx, Kiss & Brown

Another very simple look featuring some new products I bought namely the Bobbi Brown Black Ruby Sparkle Eye Palette (reviewed here), Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette and Lancôme Golden Hat Illuminating Smooth Powder (reviewed here).

For face: Nothing too heavy, natural with a bit of sheen. Because I have been on medication for my flu and cough, my skin feels extremely dry and sensitive. I prepped my skin with Shu Uemura Stage Performer Instant-Glow which doubles up as a moisturizer and layered Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse over before applying Shu Uemura Face Architect Illuminating Moisture Fluid Foundation and set with Shu Uemura Face Powder Matte. I did not apply any concealer in this look.

For those who has combination skin, I think by layering Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse over Shu Uemura Stage Performer Instant-Glow can help reduce the oiliness.

For eyes: I used MAC Shadestick in Street Cool all over the lid, up to just below to crease. Then I gently pat Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow in Onyx on top with a flat brush. Blend the edges with a fluffy brush up to the brow bone. Line eyes with a black eyeliner. I also applied MAC Shadestick in Street Cool along my lower lash line and lined the outer corners with a black eyeliner. Finish the eyes with some mascara and false eyelashes.

For cheeks & lips: I applied Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Kiss along the cheek bones and blend upwards and down – it’s such a beautiful dusty rose which doubles up as a contouring shade for me. Highlight with Lancôme Golden Hat Illuminating Smooth Powder. Complete the look with dusty rose lips, here, I am using Brown from Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette.

Thank you for reading.
