Hey hey hey everyone,
I have been on a serious brown errathang kick lately, brown mascara, brown liner and now a brown smokey eye! I’ve just been trying to soften my make-up lately, make it all dreamy and romantic and shit, and so this look came about. An added plus is that it makes my grey eyes more blue where as black tends to make them more green. Ever since peach smoothie made it’s debut I have learnt a thing or two about transition shades and have been trying to track down a great dupe for it. I could obviously head to MAC to try find a match, but it would be a costly adventure and I wanted a couple different warm matte shades.
Enter face powders. I love, yet often forget, that make-up has no rules. What is meant for your checks can very easily turn out to be you best eye product. So I went through my make-up stash and found 3 varying shades of matte warm powders which I have been using regularly as eyeshadows!
I have a Body Shop pressed face powder from years ago that I don’t use because it ended up being too warm for my complexion BUT as I’ve just discovered years later, makes for an excellent transition shade :) It gives just the slightest wash of colour over my eye area. I used my Bourjois bronzing powder to warm up the crease and under the eye and this is the the warmest shade of the lot so it really gives that orangey colour payoff. And lastly, I used my Hoola bronzer to deepen up the crease further more. This bronzer is the most pigmented of all the products so I wanted to use the least.
