Looks: Warm Summer Eyes

Hello everyone,

today’s look is more subdued compared to the bright looks I like to wear, but I wanted to do something with warm shades like yellow and brown to create a summery look. I’m sorry the pictures aren’t too good but, because of the heat and humidity we’re having at the moment, I’m mostly wearing makeup to go out at night on weekends. But unfortunately that means the lightening at night isn’t ideal to take pictures. Oh well, I hope you’ll still like it:

Products used:
Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
– Gosh Effect Powder in Pineapple
Sleek I-Divine Bohemian Eyeshadow Palette
– Sleek Storm Eyeshadow Palette (chocolate brown and cream)
– Pupa True Eyes eyeliner pencil in black
– Collistar Infinito mascara
YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation
Max Factor Erace Concealer
Paul & Joe Disney Face Color Ball in 001 Fantastic Orange
Senna Spot Lites Highlighting Pencil
Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Rose Petal

Directions:
– Apply an eyeshadow primer (I used Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer) all over the lid to create a base for the shades to adhere to and last longer.
– Apply Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy (if you don’t have, you can skip this step) on the lid to make the colors brighter.
– Pat a soft yellow/gold shade (I used Gosh Effect Powder in Pineapple) on the lid.
– Apply a copperish red shade (I used the one in the Sleek Bohemian palette) on the outer V and blend it into the crease.
– Sweep a warm chocolate brown shade (I used the one in the Sleek Storm palette) on the lower lashline. Apply some on the crease to darken it to.
– Apply a pale cream shade (I used the one in the Sleek Storm palette) on the browbone to highlight.
– Line your upper lashline with a black pencil eyeliner (I used – Pupa True Eyes eyeliner pencil in black) and apply mascara.
– On your face, apply concealer (I used Max Factor Erace Concealer) to cover dark circles and any other imperfection you may have, and then your usual foundation (I used YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation in no.5).
– Apply an orangey blush (I used Paul & Joe Disney Face Color Ball in 001 Fantastic Orange) and ighlight the cheekbones, middle of the nose and chin with a subtle champagne highlighter (I used Senna Spot Lites Highlighting Pencil).
– Swipe an antique rose lipstick (Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Rose Petal) on the lips and you’re done.

      Nikki, thanks, I’m glad you like it. And you’re too kind. I’m glad the pictures didn’t turn out too bad (although not as good as usual) even though they were taken at night. :)

      Vonvon, it’s a nice shade, isn’t it? Very soft and wearable. Plus, Gosh pigments have such a creamy texture, they blend like a dream. :)

    Hey, you often complain about the picture qaulity but believe me there’s no reason to do it. ;-) You have a very good cam (btw, what kind of cam do you use?) and the pictures are very clear and the colours are true. I really love this warm eye make up as it compliments your eye colour (I didn’t know that there are tiny brown spots in it – so cool!). I hope you rocked the party with such a wonderful make up!

      Mylanqolia, thank you. I guess I complain cos I’m such a perfection and want things done in a certain way. And when they don’t I get frustrated. It’s an aspect of my character I have to work on. I have to learn that even though I do my best, things may not always turn out as I want them to cos I can’t control anything.

      I don’t have a camera at the moment. :( I’ve always been useless at photography and just when I was finally learning how to use my camera, it died on me! So I turned to my bf and asked him to take pictures for my blog while I save money to buy a good quality camera. He’s a budding photographer that’s currently attending a photographic course and uses a Canon Powdershot 590is. He’s great at taking photos but I know these pictures wouldn’t turn out better if he had taken them during the day or somewhere else other than my bedroom as the lightening at night there is horrible, hence my frustration. :)

      And thank you for your kind works, I’m glasd you loved the look. :)
