Look In Grand Palais

A pretty simple, romantic and monochromatic look for you today using NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Grand Palais (reviewed here) and Chanel Glossimer in 297 Sweet Beige. Grand Palais is a beautiful duo and it’s really wearable depending on how you use it and which colour you are more comfortable with emphasizing on. Whether you choose the taupe or rose, the outcome will still be spectacular. I have chosen to use rose as my main colour for this look and let’s get started.

Nail colour by Chanel521 Rose Caché (reviewed here).

For face: I applied a thin layer of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief to moisturize and prep my skin for the Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30/PA +++. Concealed dark circles and blemishes with Clinique All About Eyes Concealer and set with Clinique Derma White Bright-C Powder Makeup. I lightly dusted some Lancôme Golden Hat Illuminating Smooth Powder all over my face as a finishing powder and used Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in WT 905 to highlight parts of the face, including cupid’s bow.

For eyes: Prepped my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and gently pat on the rose shade from NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Grand Palais to my lids – stop just under the crease. Apply Bobbi Brown Creamy Eye Pencil in Dusk along the upper lash line and use the taupe shade to soften the line. Apply the taupe shade to the outer corners of the eyes and along the crease – blend. If you need more definition, add a darker colour to the outer corners and blend but I did not do it here. Use a natural colour to highlight the brow bone, I am using MAC Velvet Eyeshadow in Vanilla.

I used Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Clair to line my lower water line and used the taupe shade along the lash line. I also applied a tiny amount of Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Powder to the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up a little. Apply some mascara and false eyelashes.

For cheeks & lips: I used MAC Matte Powder Blush in Darkly My Dear to contour and added a pop of Bobbi Brown Blush in 5 Plum on the apples of my cheeks. I chose a soft rosy lip colour and added a little gloss over for that extra feminine touch.

Thank you for looking, have a wonderful day ahead.
