FOTD Catrice purple smokey & false lashes.

this is a recent FOTD i did with a drugstore eye make up and high end complexion make up. i think it turned out very nice.
and again with false lashes ;) this time i tried the infamous Princess Lee False Eyelashes in the style Cross 7. i find that these are really nice in terms of a very thin and flexible band, but since they are quite dense and i used them along the entire lashline and not only the outer corners, the result is less natural and more wispy than with my other styles.

for the face:

foundation: Sisley Phyto Teint Éclat in #1 Ivory (1 - review) applied with the fingers

concealer: Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #2 (2 - review) applied with the fingers

powder: Guerlain Météorites Perles de Nuit (3) applied with SUQQU Face Brush (4)

contour: NARS The Multiple Bronzer in Cap Vert (7 - review) applied with Sigma F84 (8 - review)

blush: Guerlain Rosée du Printemps (5 - review) applied with SUQQU Cheek Brush (6)

for the eyes:

brows: Shiseido brow pencil in GY901 Natural Black (1)

lips: Chanel Glossimer in #83 Magnifique (sorry, not on pic - here's a lip swatch)

eye make up:
  • tightline the upper waterline with matte black shadow from Guerlain #68 Champs-Élysées palette (2 - review) and MakeUpShow H07 Small Shader Brush (3 - review). elongate the line in the outer corner. apply what's left on the brush on the outer part of the lower lashline, meeting up with the line in the outer corner.
  • apply a wash of Catrice Heidi Plum eyeshadow (8 - review) with SUQQU Eye Brush L (5) all over the lid, blend out with Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush (6 - review).
  • apply the metallic silver/taupe eyeshadow from L'Oreal HIP Electrified Duo (9 - review) with SUQQU Eye Brush M (4) to the inner corners and the lower lashline.
  • draw a thick liner with Essence Gel Eyeliner in Berlin Rocks (10 - review) with Rossmann-brand lip brush (7), meet up with the black line at the outer corner to create an almond shape of your eyes.
  • curl lashes with Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (11), apply one coat of Shiseido The Perfect Mascara (12).
  • apply false eyelashes (13), using this method.
