Simple, beautiful look with purple eyes

7:33 PM

Instead of wearing neutral shadows everyday (too boring), I like to add some color every now and then.  Especially when I am wearing black or neutral clothes.  I hear a lot of people say that they are scared or think colored shadows are tacky. I think this is rather sad considering the abundance of gorgeous shades out there. And as an added bonus, these are all good products for sensitive skin and eczema.

Products used:

Eyes:  Lancome Aquatique Eyeshadow Base
          Urban Decay Black Palette (Jet Eyeshadow)
          Hypnose Drama Mascara
         Bobbi Brown Corrector, and Bobbit Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
Face:  Revlon Colorstay Foundation
          Sephora Sculpting Disk
          Smashbox Halo
Lips:  Nars Lipstick in Belle De Jour

I always prep my face by cleansing it, using Olay Regenerist Serum, an eye cream (currently Sephora Collection Age Defy Eye Cream) and a non greasy sunscreen or moisturizer with an SPF. Then I apply the Bobbi Brown Corrector, followed by the Creamy Concealer Kit (which has a concealer, and a setting powder).  Then I apply the Aquatique over the lid.  For this look, I did not use a base color.  I just applied Jet from the crease down and applied it on half of the lower lash line.  I always do my eyes first in case of fallout, which tends to happen with a lot of Urban Decay shadows.  But not this one, luckily.  Then I applied Revlon Colorstay Foundation; be careful when applying.  It is very easy to get too much because it pours out; there is no pump.  Finally, I used the Smashbox Halo as a setting powder and to get rid of excess oil. Afterwards, I added the "Sun" color under my cheekbones and along my hairline. As a side note, the Halo can be a hastle to keep up with on the go and it is pricey.  The Sephora Collection Tricks of the Trade Mineral Touch Up Powder is a good and cheap alternative.
