Makeup Trial - Smokey Eyes

This outfit was what I had chosen to wear at a friend's wedding. I looooove the intricate embellishments and I balanced its show-stopping glamour with nude kitten heels. I wanted to try out two different smokey eyes to see what would look best - blue grey or black gold. I opted for the blue grey since it was also the theme of the wedding.

This look was inspired by Janet Jackson's Runaway. It's a beautiful song that sounds very cheerful and awakens the wanderlust spirit in all of us. Makes me want to dance, see the world and have a good time! Yeaaaahhhh!!!

  • Bourjois Healthy mix serum foundation in 53 Light Beige
  • Liole Carry Me blusher in Cutie Peach

Datenight! FOTD inspired by Bel Biv Devoe's Poison

This date-night FOTD is a little bit punk/grunge/rock but for some reason the song that kept popping up in my head while I was creating this look was Bel Biv Devoe's classic dance track Poison. 

Maybe it's something to do with the emerald green tones of the eyeshadow I used (including one called Poison!). I initially finished the look off with a beige lippy but somehow it didn't tie the overall look together - it looked too prim and proper - so I changed to a darker aubergine stain. 

Products I used:

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix gel serum foundation in 53 Light Beige
  • NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
  • Urban Decay Vice 2: Smokeout, Poison, Damaged
  • Urban Decay Naked in Virgin to highlight browbone and inner eyes
  • Essence kajal pencil in Black
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl kajal eyeliner in Nude
  • Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara in Very Black
  • Lorac Pro powder cheek stain in Rosy Glow
  • Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry (used as a stain)
