FOTD: Plum Sunset
I don’t grab for my Sleek Sunset palette nearly enough.
Sometimes the shimma shimma in their palettes sort of scares me off, because it tends to emphasize uneven eyelids.
Yadda yadda, imperfections bla bla.
But today, today I was a brave little hobbit.
And I shall name it… Plum sunset.
Here’s what happened:
Excuse the one very blurry pic!
What’s that on your face?
1) Even canvas
Essence: I love stage primer once again, and Wet n Wild Brulee e/s on top of that.
2) Black base
I started off with UD’s 24/7 liner in black, for a nice smokey base.
It’s not cruelty free (i’m using it up) but a gel liner like the Essence or Catrice ones would be even better.
3) Burgundy red (which turns out really purple on me..) on the lid
4) Plummy plum plum in the crease
And I warmed up my 2B Kohl with a lighter to smudge it on the lower waterline and lashline
5) A burnt orange on top of that, I used the 88 matte palette
Then also some pink in the crease, up to the browbone
6) Warm gold on the inner corner
7) Pumping up the lashes
I used my UD pencil again, smudged along the top lashline and blended out with some more of the burgundy shade.
Again, the gel liners would be even better.
(Not JUST ’cause they’re cruelty free, they also stay put longer! :))
Then I applied Ardell’s Demi Whispies in Black.
8) Gold toward the nosebridge
I decided to put some more of that gold toward my nosebridge, following along with the plum, to make it more interesting…
MUFE: HD foundation
2B: Concealer Stick
Catrice: Apropos Apricot blusher
Double brave! ;)
I felt a slightly shiny face would look nice with this.
Catrice: 150 Lovely Lilac
How do you like this new set up?
I figured showing the products would possibly be more fun? :)
