Late last night I was rummaging through my drawers and I came across this little pot of deep blue goodness.
First of all, what took me so long to rediscover this? It's beautiful! And oh so pigmented!
I used illamasqua liquid metal in Superior as a base on my lids.
Then I started playing around with the first four strips of color from the Paul & Joe Face & Eye Color CS 069 - from the dark blue, purple, pink to create a gradation from lash line to crease. This nifty floral decorated eye palette is so sweet and probably one of my best purchases from Paul & Joe. The pigmentation can be subtle, so layering it over the illamasqua liquid metal brings out the intensity of each color.
Adding Shu Uemura IR 900Y eyeshadow to the inner corners of the eyes and bottom lashline just brought this whole look together. This eyeshadow, if you can still get your hands on it, gives the most ethereal gold glow.
For the rest of my look, I used Guerlain Lingerie De Peau foundation. I have forgotten how much I love this foundation. Last year I had tried to wear it but it only accentuated my dry skin patches during the winter. I learnt that the best way to wear this foundation is to have a moisturising primer underneath. I used Bobbi Brown Vitamin C Enriched Face Base. I am seriously in love with this stuff - it smells so heavenly and my skin drinks it up like juice.
I dusted some Perles D'or Meteorites lightly all over to give my face an additional shimmer and glow.
Depending on which cheek brush you use, Benefit Sugarbomb can either make your cheeks pop or give a subtle nuance of color. I went for the latter, using the softest blush brush by RMK. It's made of squirrel hair and it feels divine on the skin. I can only recommend this brush to anyone looking to diverge from MAC brushes.
On my lips I have Guerlain Kiss Kiss Rose Ingenue 573, a soft nude-peach. The formula is moisturising too.
I hope you are having a good Monday and thank you for reading!
