First of all, sorry for the not-so-good photos. For some reason I just was unable to find any decent lighting!
I wanted this one to be pretty and subtle.
I used Revlon Colourstay Concealer in 05 Medium Deep under my eyes and on the eyelids where they are a bit dark, applying with the applicator and blending with my fingers. I used Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF12 in Golden 6 all over my face for light coverage and shine control, applied with my EcoTools powder brush.
On my eyes I applied L’Oreal Paris Color Appeal in 151 pure gold using my Ruby & Millie eye brush all over my lids and just above the crease, then I lined the top lashline with Benecos Kajal pencil in black. I just wanted to give the appearance of fuller lashes so using MAC brush 239 I blended the liner into my lashline.
I then applied Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara in Black to my top and bottom lashes. I defined my eyebrows using Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany 10 and an angled eyeliner brush.
I contoured the hollows of my cheeks using the dark colour in Sleek Face Contour Kit in Medium 885 and my Models Own blusher brush. Using the same brush, I used Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar to highlight and add a subtle colour to my cheeks.
I finished the look with two coats of Rimmel Apocalips in 301 Galaxy, the purple looking one.
