I wanted to do a look using the pinky/purple hues from my new Naked palette and Su, with her gorgeous blue eyes was the perfect model to showcase the colours (oh heck, and blue eyes makes a nice change from seeing my brown eyes all the time, right?)
Eyes – What I did
Using a fluffy brush I dusted the colour Naked in the crease, blended quite high towards the brow bone. Then, using a flat stiff brush, I applied the colour Toasted all over the eyelid. Using the same brush, I applied MAC’s Star Violet (pictured below) in the centre of the eyelid to give the look some extra dimension. Then, using a pencil brush, I added the shade Hustle to the outer v to give the look a bit more drama! I used Booty call in the inner eye corner as an eye illuminator/brightener. Lastly, I rimmed Su’s lashes with Mac’s Prunella eyeliner. This is a dark brown eyeliner with a hint of burgundy and it works particularly well on blue, hazel and green eyes.
- Kryolan Ultra Foundation
- MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (NW20)
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in ‘Translucent’ to set the foundation
- Nars Laguna bronzer, used as a contour
- Benefit’s Hoola bronzer to warm up the skin slightly
- Nars Orgasm blusher
Lips: Maybelline’s Make Me Pink lipstick. I had a giggle as Su instantly recognised the name of the colour “Is that the colour you wear a lot?” she asked (I mention this colour on my Facebook page when I do my selfies of my makeup look for the day!)
Hair: Su’s hair is utterly beautiful and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it. All I did was curl pieces at random with my Vidal Sassoon Curl Secret gadget. Easy as!
What did she think? She loved it!
