Looks: A Cool Breeze

a cool breeze

The title is totally wishful thinking. It is so hot today that I’m craving even the lightest cool breeze. I just hope my makeup wouldn’t melt off my face cos I quite like this look. It’s simple but bright and summery. Here’s how you can recreate it too:

Products used:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio In I Dream Of Greenie
- Sleek Makeup I-Divine Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette
- Essence Kajal Pencil in Cool Breeze
- Pupa Vamp! Mascara in Chocolate Brown
- Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation
- Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
- Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Magic
- Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop

EYES:
1. Prime your eyes with an eyeshadow base. This will make your eyeshadow stay put for hours, even in the hot summer weather.
2. Pat a sheer minty green shade (I used the browbone one in the Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio In I Dream Of Greenie) on the lid.
3. Sweep a soft and shimmery bronzy brown (I used Gift Basket in the Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette) on the crease and outer part of the lid.
4. Apply a matte cream shade (I used Bow in the Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette) on the browbone.
5. Line your upper and lower lashlines, as well as your waterline, with a bright aqua kajal pencil (I used Essence Kajal Pencil in Cool Breeze).
6. Apply brown mascara on your lashes.

FACE & LIPS
1. Apply foundation and concealer where needed.
2. Sweep a pink coral blush (I used Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Magic) on your cheeks.
3. Apply a cool bright fuchsia lipgloss (I used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop) on your lips.

Get The Look: A Box Of Greenies

a box of greenies

It’s been ages since I last posted a makeup look. Sorry about that! I’ve been very lazy lately and been wearing mostly simple and boring neutral looks with a pop of colour that are easy to do and are suitable for any occasion. Today’s look like that too. I used the subtlest hint of mint green on the eyes (it’s so sheer that it almost looks white in photos!) and paired it with brown shades.

Here’s how you can recreate it:

Products used:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette
- Sleek I-Divine Original Eyeshadow Palette
- Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio In I Dream Of Greenie
- Pupa Vamp! Mascara in Chocolate Brown
- Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation
- Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
- Benefit Coralista Blush
- Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Rose Petal

EYES
1. Apply an eyeshadow primer all over the lid. My favourite is Too Faced Shadow Insurance. It improves the colour payoff of eyeshadows and makes them last for ages without creasing and fading.
2. Sweep a shimmery bronzy brown shade (I used Gift Basket in the Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette) on the crease. With a pencil brush, apply the same shade on the lower lashline too.
3. Apply a copper shade (I used the one in the Sleek Makeup Original Eyeshadow Palette) on the outer part of the lid.
4. Apply a sheer mint green shade (I used the browbone shade in the Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio In I Dream Of Greenie) on the inner part of the lid. Blend where it meets with the copper.
5. Sweep a matte creme shade (I used Bow in the Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette) on the browbone.
6. Apply a brown mascara (I used Pupa Vamp! Mascara in Chocolate Brown).

FACE & LIPS
1. Apply foundation all over the face and concealer where needed.
2. Sweep a coral pink blush (I used Benefit Coralista) on the apples of your cheeks.
3. Apply an antique pink lipstick (I used Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Rose Petal) on the lips.

Looks: Chocolate Binge

I’m on a winged eyeliner kick lately. Only this time, I’ve abandoned black, and opted for a more colourful, but still intense, navy shade. Because I wanted that to be the focus of this look, I kept the rest of the face natural. I hope you’ll like it.

Products used:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Senna Haute Nudes Palette in Sultry
- Sleek Makeup I-Divine Sparkle 2 Eyeshadow Palette
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Binge and Whiskey
- Pupa Vamp! Mascara in Chocolate Brown
- YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation
- Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
- Illamasqua Powder Blush in Naked Rose
- Sleek Makeup Face Form in Light
- Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick In Naturally Nude

EYES
1. Prime your lids with a good eyeshadow base, which will make your eyeshadows last longer. My favourite is Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
2. Sweep a medium matte reddish brown on the crease (I used Tiger Lily in the Senna Haute Nudes Palette in Sultry).
3. Apply a medium, matte, warm brown shade with red undertones (I used Palomino in the Senna Haute Nudes Palette in Sultry) on the outer V and lower lashline.
4. Apply a matte ivory shade (I used New Moon in the Senna Haute Nudes Palette in Sultry) on the browbone.
5. Pat a metallic golden copper shade (I used Chocolate Penny in the Sleek Makeup Sparkle 2 Eyeshadow Palette) on the lid. With a pencil brush, apply a touch of it in the very inner part of the lower lashline. Blend where it meets with the brown.
6. Line your upper lashline with a navy blue eyeliner. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Binge, but if you have a navy liquid eyeliner in your stash, use that one. It will make the blue pop even more. Once you’ve drawn the line, wing it out.
7. Line your waterline with a dark and warm brown eyeliner pencil (I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Whiskey).
8. Apply mascara. I used a dark brown one, but you can use a black shade, if you prefer.

2. Apply a medium rosy pink blush shade with slightly blue undertones and an almost matte finish (I used Illamasqua Powder Blush in Naked Rose) on the apples of your cheeks.
3. Sweep a sheer cream highlighting shade (I used the one in Sleek Face Form in Light) on top of your cheekbones, and the bridge of your nose.
4. Apply a creamy pale beige nude shade (I used Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick In Naturally Nude) on your lipstick.
