Office Bombshell…

IMG_0622

I created this look to demonstrate how you can wear something which you will be able to take from day to night, from the office¬†to the bar and so on… ūüėČ

So if you’d like to see how I did this read on ladies, or gents ūüėČ

~STEP 1~

You know what they say… Not to prime is a crime, and for those like me, with deep-set hooded eyes, you betcha its a crime. If I don’t –¬†not only do I end up with a crease line, but the shadow smudges and I end up looking like I’ve been rubbing my eyes all day. So, taking my trusty Shadow Insurance by Too Faced Cosmetics, I apply that all over my lid and up to my brown bone blending it in. Then, applying in the same motion and area with a thin layer of Soft Ochre Paint Pot by MAC Cosmetics. Setting it with Blanc Type¬†shadow also by MAC Cosmetics. Taking my E35 Tapered Blending Brush by Sigma and the a light brown shade (No. 6 see blelow)¬†from my Morphe Brushes 35W Palette shade and blend that into and above my crease ‚Äď this will be my transition colour.

~STEP 2~

Taking a slightly darker shade of brown (No. 10) from the same Morphe Brushes 35W Palette, and my MAC Cosmetics 217 Blending Brush, I blend it directly into my crease and into my transition shade. I apply more and take it into my inner corner and extend it out into my outer V. This is called the Halo effect.

~STEP 3~

For a little something different and I add a bit of sparkle in the middle I add Urban Decay’s Moondust Eyeshadow in the shade Space Cowboy (excuse my french but I effing adore this shadow). This is actually best applied with your finger. So taking my ring finger I generously apply this to the center of my lid.

~STEP 4~

Now you could leave it here and go straight to Step 5… But I always like to make things a little more dramatic. So I take a darker, warmer shade of brown (No. 13) from the same Morphe Brushes 35W Palette. I apply this using my E45 Small Tapered Blending Brush by Sigma over where I placed the No. 10 shadow. Repeat this step till you get it as dark as you feel comfortable with.

 

~STEP 5~

Again depending on your preference you could simply apply some mascara and go on with your foundation. However I like to apply some liquid liner into a cat eye flick. Then apply just a simple coat of mascara because I am going to add some false lashes.

~STEP 6~

After applying some false lashes Рyou can use whatever ones you like Рthe ones I am wearing are by Eldora in the style B123 however these are no longer in stock, again, ever :( alternatively you could try the H107. So, once these bad boys are glued into place I go ahead and clear up any fall out from underneath my eyes and apply my foundation Рif you want to see my foundation routine Рclick here.

~FINISH~

Again this is optional – I add a mixture of the two purple shades from the same¬†Morphe Brushes 35W Palette¬†(No.’s 27 & 28) with my E21 Small Smudge Brush by Sigma and apply that under my eye and blend it out till its nice and smokey. Finish it off with a couple of coats of mascara.



Now, in my opinion, I think this is the perfect look to take you from day to night… But then that’s just me – let me know what you think of if you try this tag me on Instagram¬†– would love to see what you come up with :)

Till next time xoxo
