Looks: Naturally Extravagant

Hello everyone,

as you know I’m reviewing a few products from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Extravagant holiday collection at the moment, so I’ve been wearing them a lot lately to test how well they perform and last. So, I thought it’d be nice to share with you all one of the looks I did with them.

On my eyes, I used the Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold. At the event I attended, we were told to use the colors diagonally, three at a time, but I decided to just use them all in this look. It’s more fun that way, isn’t it? I wanted the lips to be shiny but natural so I used two of the shades in the Lips Palette 01 Extravagant, which are sheer.

I know this look, is not really natural nor extravagant but it is for me, since I usually wear much bolder and colorful looks. Yes, I’m not very creative when it comes to naming looks I’m afraid but I still hope you like the look. Let me know what you think of it!

Products used:
– Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold
Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Eyeliner in Brown
– Layla Love For Lash mascara
YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation
– Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Porcelain
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold
– Wet n Wild Cover All Concealer Palette
– Estee Lauder Pure Color Lips Palette 01 Extravagant

Directions:
– Apply an eyeshadow primer (I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance) all over the lid to make the eyeshadows stay put all day.
– Apply a gold shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the inner part of the lid. Sweep the same shade on the lower lashline as well.
– Apply a reddish brown shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the outer part of the lid and blend where it meets with the gold.
– Now, sweep a medium brown shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the crease and blend well. You don’t want any harsh lines. Apply the same shade on the lower lashline and blend where it meets with the gold.
– Apply a dark brown matte shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the outer corner to darken the color there. Blend well.
– Sweep a pearly cream beige (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the browbone to highlight.
– Line your upper lid (but not all the way, only till the middle of the lid) with a brown liquid eyeliner (I used Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Eyeliner in Brown). This will define your eyes in a more natural way than a harsh color like black would do. Apply mascara.
– On your face, apply your usual foundation (I used YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation in no.5) and then concealer (I used Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Porcelain) to cover dark circles or any other imperfection you may have.
– Sweep a peachy pink blush with gold shimmers (I used Sleek Blush in Rose Gold) on the cheeks and highlight the cheekbones, middle of the nose and chin with a white highlighter (I used the white shade in the Wet n Wild Cover All Concealer Palette).
– On my lips, I mixed the gold and orange shades, both of which are sheer, from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Lips Palette 01 Extravagant lip palette.

  1. Sweetie, I’d say that this might be for some peeps a bold eye make up as well. ;-) I love the color intensity of the e/s but I’m afaraid I wouldn’t buy any EL e/s because they are too pricey for me. :-(

    • Mylanqolia, the colors have great color payoff so maybe this look is too bold for some people. I think using only two or three of the colors would result in a more wearable look. :)

      EL is pricey indeed! But the quality is great and who knows, maybe someone will get some for you as a pressie. ;)
