Look In Delphes

Hello everyone, I was quite bored one night and thought I would do a look using NARS Trio Eyeshadow in Delphes (reviewed here) which I purchased a while ago. I picked up NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Trian Bleu in Perth and I would like to play with it as well.

This look is definitely not an every day look and it’s not for everyone but you can pick up elements to create your own. You can change the lips or eyes to suit your personal preference.

Nail colour by Rescue Beauty LoungeStormy.

For face: I applied Make Up For Ever HD Primer in #2 to take away any redness on my face and I chose a lighter foundation for this look – Givenchy Photo’Perfexion Light. I use my usual Chanel Éclat Lumiére Highlighter Face Pen under the eyes and parts of the face to conceal and highlight. Set with Givenchy Prisme Libre in 5 Soft White.

For eyes: Because the colours in this palette are quite sheer, I applied some Urban Decay Primer Potion prior to eyeshadow application – hoping it will help. I applied peach all over the lids and under the brow bones followed by sage up to the crease. I define the outer corners of my eyes and slightly deepen the crease with grey. I used Make Up Store Eyeliner in Dusty Smoke along my upper lash line and blend to soften the edges with sage.

For the lower lash line, I used Chanel Le Crayon Yeux in Khaki Platine and darken the outer 3/4 with MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder. Apply some mascara and false eyelashes.

For cheeks and lips: I applied NARS Blush in Amour slightly under my cheek bones and highlight with Chanel Poudre Douce in 70 Almond. I have extremely dry lips recently so I applied a thin layer of lip balm before applying NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Trian Bleu directly with the pencil.

Thank you for looking, hope I didn’t scare you.

  1. The bold lip color is a nice change from the usual pinks and nudes always featured in blogs nowadays. I would wear this color when I want to look dramatic during night time holiday parties. ;-)
