I wore this look to go with a grey dress but I ended up wearing this with a navy blue dress. Luckily it still worked!
This look is all about the eyes and I love these colours on brown eyes.
For my face I applied Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF12 in Golden 6 using my EcoTools powder brush all over my face and I used the sponge to apply the foundation under my eyes. I contoured my face using my Sleek contour kit in medium, applying the darker colour in the hollows of my cheeks, the sides of my forehead, sides of my nose and along the bottom of my face and the highlighter shade where my cheekbones should be, the middle of my forehead and down the middle of my nose all using my Models Own angled blusher brush.
I prepared my eyelids by applying the pale golden matte sand colour from Sleek palette Bohemian 604 to my eyelids all the way up to my browbone to act as a base. It is a shade or two lighter than my eyelids. I used my Ruby & Millie eye brush (fairly firm). I then applied the metallic green colour from Sleek palette Curacao 656 using my No7 eyeshadow brush, all over my eyelid. Finally I applied the dark metallic purple (more on the blue side of purple) from my Sleek Bad Girl 596 eyshadow palette in the crease, just above the crease and over the outer third of my eyelid using MAC brush 239. I applied the same purple colour under my lower lashline using MAC brush 219 and blended a little. I blended the colours on my lids using my No7 eyeshadow brush. To finish my eyes I applied 2 coats of Maybelline the Falsies Volum’ Express Flared mascara in Very Black to my upper lashes and one coat to my lower lashes
I defined my eyebrows using Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany 10 and an angled eyeliner brush.
I filled in my lips using Bobbi Brown lip liner in Rich Cocoa and applied Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Hot Cocoa straight from the tube. I finished my lips by applying Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Nude 08 (not pictured).
