So sorry I didn’t blog Saturday, I just couldn’t. Physically. My brain has only just reanimated from the liquid it had transformed into from the hangover of the year.
This look was for my beautiful friend Candice’s Hen Do. She had a rock chick theme as her fiance is in a rock band.
So I used my Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave Palette to create this whole look!
I started with the pure white shade on the third row of the palette all over my eyes as a base (1) and I layered this over twice to get a good light base, cos this look was all about the drama! I then went in with the light brown colour near to the white base (2) as a transitional colour in my crease. I used my fluffy Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush for this whole look, aside from the glitter which I used my finger for.
After I had laid my base down, I used the dark brown colour (3) to sclupt out my crease and create the shape I wanted with the shadow. This brown is probably my favourite brown for creating a daytime smokey eye. Once I had blended this out, I then had the slightly scary task of adding the black to the look, I basically went over where I had laid the brown (3) previously, as well as along the lashline and under the waterline (4). After I had laid the colour I then blended the black out to the desired shape from the lashline and through the crease lightly.
Once I had all my dark shades down, I then moved on to getting the white and shimmer on the centre of the eye. I used (1) and (5) alternatively to create the lightest part of my eye. I blended these into the black with my brush, and then applied more of the shimmer (5) with my finger to build that dramatic look!
In the corner of my eye, I used the silver highlight from the Makeup Revolution Love the Revolution Palette in my inner corner to make my eyes pop!
After this was down, I then used my staple Soap and Glory Supercar Eyeliner to line my eyes, I went back to flicks after my Glowy makeup look which you can find below. And I used my sample size Benefit They’re Real Mascara because I wanted longwearing super dramatic lashes for the night. Which turned out to be a great idea, as I definitely didn’t roll in til 1am and I definitely had work at 9am.
