here is a look I did using two of my favourite eyeshadow colors: green and purple. Although you can barely see the green in the finished look, which wasn’t what I had in mind at first, I really like how it turned out. It’s colorful but still very wearable.
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Barry M Dazzle Dust #15 aqua
- Sleek Original eyeshadow palette (green and purple)
- Sleek Acid palette (purple)
- Barry M Dazzle Dust #65 green iridescent
- Kiko eyeshadow in Vinaccia Scuro (purple)
- Prestige eyeliner in Kiwi
- L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara
Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion with your fingers all over lid as a base.
With an eyeshadow brush (I used E.L.F’s one), apply an aqua shade (I used Barry M Dazzle Dust #15 aqua) on the lid.
With the same brush, gently pat an emerald green color above the aqua shade to slightly change the color.
Apply a bright purple shade (I used the one in Sleek Acid palette) on the crease and blend.
Apply a line of green eyeliner (I used Prestige eyeliner in Kiwi) on the lower lashline.
Apply a dark purple shade (I used the one in Sleek Original palette) on the outer corner and, with MAC 219 pencil brush, on the outer lower lashline.
Swipe a sheer white shade (I used Barry M Dazzle Dust #65 green iridescent) on the browbone to highlight. Apply the same shade in the inner corner and inner lower lashline. Blend.
Apply a purple shade (I used Kiko in Vinaccia Scuro) on the crease to blend the colors a bit more.
Finish off with mascara.
I also wanted to show you my E.L.F. studio haul which arrived this morning. I didn’t order many things because I’m supposed to be on a makeup ban this month. And if you follow me on Twitter you know that’s not going very well. The Studio Line was on sale so how I was supposed to say no? But I’ve been good and only ordered things I needed:
Powder brush: I’ve been wanting this brush ever since I saw Connie’s review. She said it works great to apply liquid foundation and this is exactly how I plan to use it. Can’t wait to try it!
Complexion brush: I was surprised at how soft the bristles are! It has a horrible chemical-scent, but that should fade after the first wash.
Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder: the blush is gorgeous but the bronzer looks way too dark for me. Still, I’ll try and find a way to put it to good use.
Golden Bronzer: I love bronzers but it’s hard to find one that works with my pale skin. Hopefully this will. Unfortunately it’s a bit broken but nothing irreparable.
Reviews are coming soon! Have you tried anything from the E.L.F. Studio Line? What do you think of the products?
