The products featured on this post today, are much loved make-up items. Hence why they are not looking all sparkly and new. Let’s be honest they look well dodge! But I had quite a few people asking what products i used on my eyes on my last post, here.
So even though it pains me to feature such grubby looking items on my blog, i feel this is reality, and every single one of us has a LOT of make-up that looks like this.
So ya know, I decided to bite the bullet and press PUBLISH!
The Charlotte Tilbury eye crayons in particular are my go-to product. The whole look i will be chatting about today, takes no longer than five minutes, tops.
This pencil is recommended for people with blue eyes, it’s a smoky black glittery eye crayon.
I find if i apply it straight to the lid, it can drag a little. I usually swipe a couple of times on the back of my hand to warm the product up, it then applies much softer on the lid. I find it is easier to blend in with my fingers opposed to a brush, the crayon is very pigmented and only a small amount is needed. You have around 30 seconds to work with it, and then it doesn’t budge. You can also build it up, I usually do around 1-2 layers dependant on the occasion.
Charlotte Tilbury – Amber Haze Colour Chameleon Eye Pencil:
This pencil is recommended for people with brown eyes, i have blue, and i still love it. The shade is a rustic, antique, sparkly, amber shade. Again all the above applies to this shade too.
Make Up Forever Aqua Eyeliner, Dark Black. Shade M10:
I really like the softness of this eyeliner.
It feels so comfortable when applying across the lash line, and as it’s so creamy it’s easy to blend.
I do think it lacks pigmentation when applied to the waterline.
(I much prefer Estee Lauder Double Wear black eyeliner for the waterline. That is the bomb).
How I use the products:
In the picture featured below, I simply coloured across my whole lid with the Black Diamond crayon and blended with my finger. I then drew under my lower lash line with the crayon, and blended out with a fluffy blending brush.
I then used the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette, (which i don’t use enough of) and I used the smoke shade (bottom right) across my socket as a transitional shade, lightly blending. I then used the prime shade (top left) across my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eye.
I also added the eyeliner to my upper and lower water line. I then used the KVD liquid liner across the lash line too.
(Oooops forgot to photograph that, but you can find a full review here)
I follow the exact same process when using Amber Haze. I tend to use Amber Haze, when I want a softer and more natural make-up look.
So yes pretty simple, the way i like it.
Annie over at Musing Of a Make-up Junkie created a stunning look, using the Dolce Vita palette.
I wish i had her skills.
