Look In Mandarin Mist

A rather defined look featuring Stila Mandarin Mist Eyeshadow Trio in Cool (reviewed here). I would wear this look for a party or a dinner. Hope you like it.

For face: Start off by applying a thin layer of Lancôme La Base Pro to even out skin texture. I applied Clé de Peau BEAUTÉ Concealer to conceal spots and redness before applying Lancôme Teint Miracle Compact Foundation SPF 20 / PA++. After foundation, I lightly dusted some Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder in Porcelain Pearl to brighten up my complexion.

For eyes: Shaped my brows and applied Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Shadow Cream in 06 Ivory Lace all over my lids as a base. Went in straight with the taupe from Stila Mandarin Mist Eyeshadow Trio in Cool – all over my lids and along my lower lash line. Applied maroon to the outer corners of my eyes and brought it up, along the crease for more definition – I also blended the colour along the outer corners of my lower lash line.

After the eyeshadow application, I used MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to draw my winged eyeliner and added a coat of Benefit Magic Ink Jet-Black Liquid Eyeliner to make the black pop. Added MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Gilded White to the inner corners of my eyes and beige eyeshadow from the trio over. Finish eyes with some mascara and false eyelashes.

For cheeks & lips: I went quite simple on the cheeks, applied some Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color in 400 Anna Rose to my cheek bones and blend outwards. Pair this look with your favourite nude-pink lipstick.

Thank you for looking, TGIF.

  1. This is so pretty, Joey! I’m very happy Stila is available in Sephora now because I am a huge fan of their eyeshadows :-) Just wondering if you usually use an eye primer and what would you recommend?

    • Hi Lyn,
      Thank you so much =)
      Yes, I am so happy that Sephora is bringing in more brands!!
      I am trying to wear some sort of eyeshadow base nowadays – cream eyeshadows from Benefit, MAC and Estée Lauder makes excellent bases so does NARS eyeshadow primer if you wish for something colourless =)
