BLACK EYES

December 14, 2015



Inspired by a reference I’ve had on my moodbord for a while, I took some kohl eyeliner and tried something new. This is definitely not an everyday look, but I think it could work for holiday parties.

The look started with heavily moisturized skin and Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation to cover up any dark spots or blemishes. Then I applied Estee Lauder Pure Color blush in Lover’s Blush and proceeded to mist my face with Fresh Rose Marigold Floral water because that is my favorite thing to do lately. My lips are naturally pigmented so I washed them out with a bit of foundation to cancel out existing color and applied Mac lipstick in Spirit. For the eyes, I did the tape trick and lined the upper lash line with Bobbi Brown Gel Liner Black Ink. Using Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Black Mystery, I took a small eyeshadow brush and packed on the color on the outer corner of my eyes, then drew a rounded line over the eyelid crease and used the leftover eyeshadow on my lower lash line. I finished the eyes off by lining the waterline with Butter London Wink Eye Pencil and added tons of mascara. I put on some vintage rhinestone earrings and that’s it. xx
