Last night, I started experimenting with makeup while I was waiting for Thomas to come home. Particularly, I used my Sleek Paraguaya palette. I liked the result of the experiment so I thought I’d share it to those who might be interested.
Before I did my eyes, I made sure to have foundation and concealer on. Then I used a matte cream or off white eyeshadow all over the lid and up to the brow bone. The color I used from my Paraguaya palette is called Sandstone.
On the crease line and slightly above it, I applied some matte coral eyeshadow making sure to blend out the edges. I used the color Persimmon. This I thought added warmth to the eyes.
Into the crease, I pushed a grayish-brown eyeshadow like Bittersweet from the Paraguaya palette. I blended it outwards and into the coral.
Then, I drew a line close against the lash line with a dark brown eyeliner. I added an extended flick outwards and thickened it as well using my gel eyeliner from Tony Moly. On the water line and slightly below it I ran some dark brown eyeliner pencil from Elf.
Because my brows needed filling, I redefined it using Stone, still from the Paraguaya palette.
Then, using a matte bronzer, I defined the hollows of the cheeks. To avoid a harsh line, I blended it towards my temples, along the hairline and along the jawline.
I also added a touch of orange-toned blusher on the cheeks using Pantao from Sleek. Since, I forgot to curl my lashes and put on some mascarra, I did it at this time. Moreover, I put on my false lashes because I though it completed the look better.
On the lips, I used Peach and Siren from Revlon. I put on Peach first because it’s creamier and glossier then layered Siren, which is darker in color has a drier finish, on top. I just wanted to blend the two shades to get the right color and finish.
Lastly, I put some concealer from Revlon around my lips to better shape it then added a touch of highlighter from the same Revlon palette onto my cupid’s bow and tops of my cheeks.
And so… here’s the finished look!
Hope you all like it! 🙂
