When I showed you guys the Smoked Palette, I promised to recreate all 12 looks based on the look book provided. I did the first 2 looks and find that there are lots of layering in the instructions. I followed the steps exactly, and for your convenience, I also included the instructions for you. I find that, with eyes this strong, it’s best to keep cheeks and lips nude. I think it’ll also look better with falsies so the lashes won’t disappear into the darkness – unless of course, you have thick heavy lashes yourself
I’ve had this palette for a long time but I just never got round to posting it. I even took the photos as soon as the palette arrived, edited the photos and then they just sat in my archive. Why? Because I never really busted out the eye shadows to use. So I finally did, and you know what? I like it. I like that it’s dark and smokey and that’s what it is. Smoked Palette.
I went through a cray cray depotting phase. I was armed with fire and sharp objects and my makeup feared me. I bought some Z palettes and Unii palettes for this purpose, and today, I will show you one of my Unii palettes. I managed to fit in 3 things, namely the Urban Decay Naked palette, Bobbi Brown shimmer blush in Coral and NARS bronzer in Laguna. I didn’t want to depot Laguna but the case died and melted on me. It became a disgusting goo beyond repair. I HATE the NARS packaging. Now try saying that with gusto!
This week, I decided to go khaki. I pulled out my mini Dior Royal Khaki quint and my Chanel Vert Khaki, along with Urban Decay pencil liner in Stash. Base products are pretty much the same. The same Diorsnow face powder which I have scheduled a review for (watch out for it next week), the Shiseido base that just. won’t. die. (ugh!), the Clarins Vitamin Pink blush that only has a quarter left, my ever faithful brow companion from Shu Uemura (review also out next week), and a sample mascara from Estee Lauder. I also added a highlighter in my routine and rekindled my love for Dior Amber Diamond. For lips, I decided something sheer so I stuck with Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange.
