Cool Toned Smokey Eye – Grey

IMG_3923

 

Hello My Bunnies!

It’s been so long that I’ve done a post. It’s been hectic with the holiday season and work. On top of that, I’ve been feeling super uninspired lately but nonetheless I have a look for you today. It’s a pretty simple cool toned smokey eye with a peachy nude lip. I love using warms colors most of the time but there are times when I gravitate towards greys and taupes. I think they pair beautifully with a lot of different skin tones and you can match them with many different lip colors aswell.

EYES:

~After priming I used MakeupGeek (MUG) Creme Brule per usual on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a denser crease brush (MAC 217) I used MAC Saddle on the crease blending with Creme Brule

~With a fluffy brush I gently blended Saddle on to the outer corner in a circular motion towards the crease

~Then I used MUG Slate and with a MAC 217 and blended it in a circular motion from the outer corner bringing it inwards and stopping 1/3 of the way

~Keep blending in harsh edges with a clean brush or with a teeny tiny bit of Saddle

~Then I took Lorac Gray and started applying from where I stopped with Slate (mainly on the middle lid)

~Blend Blend Blend!

~Then for the inner one third I used MUG Rockstar which is a greyish silver with pearl pink duochrome

~For the tear duct I used Urban Decay Virgin and I also applied that to my brow bone

~Lastly I decided to deepen outer corner and crease so I first used Lorac Espresso which is a dark brown and then to deepen further I used MUG Corrupt (Black) and blended it on my outer corner very carefully so that I don’t muddle everything

~Again go with a little bit of Saddle and blend any harsh edges

~I lined my waterline with a black kohl pencil and then with a pencil brush I took a bit of Corrupt and Slate and smudged the bottom lash line

~I dragged a little bit of Virgin from the tear duct to the inner one third of the lower lash line

~I applied Mascara and Falsies – Ardel Demi 120

Warm Rustic Eyes feat. the Sleek Sunset Palette

IMG_2367

 

HIYA MY BUNNIES!

I was just experimenting with the Sleek Sunset Palette today and came up with this look. The lighting killed me as there was barely any sun at my end and the photos really doesn’t do justice to the actual intricacy of the eyes. I wanted to upload it anyway and share the details with you all! 🙂

EYES

~After priming my lid, I started off with Makeup Geek Chickadee on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a slightly denser crease brush, I applied Inglot 383 (matte orange) on the crease

~Then I applied the shimmery orange shade from the Sleek Sunset palette (refer to photo above) on both corners of the lid keeping the centre bare

~ Then I mixed the two shimmery terracotta shades and applied it with a crease brush on the outer and inner corner of the lid taking it slightly to the crease (inner crease aswell) and blending out the orange shade

~I applied the gold shade from the palette with a wet brush on the centre of the lid

~Then with a more precise crease brush I applied MAC Hepcat and MAC Fig. 1 to the inner corner and outer corner of the lid blending out *make sure it is precise enough not to overpower the shadows on the inner corner

~Then with a pencil brush I applied Makeup Geek Corrupt (matte black) on the outer corner and slightly upward to the crease

~Then I took MAC Hepcat and Fig. 1 once again on the same crease brush and blended the black out

~I applied MAC Brule (matte cream shade) on the brow bone

* if there are any harsh lines make sure to go back and blend everything out

~I applied Australis Grape Cake eye pencil on my waterline and slightly on the lower lash line

~blended it out with a pencil brush and MAC Hepcat

~I applied the gold color from the palette on the tear duct area

~Then with a crease brush, I took Inglot 383 and blended everything on the lower lash line

~I lined my upper lash line with MAC Blacktrack fluidline and made a wing

~I darkened the line with Physicians Formula Eye Booster eye liner pen

~I used Maybelline Falsies mascara on the top and bottom lashes and then added false lashes (KOKO lashes in Ariel)
