Hey beauts, so I am back with a favourites post. I haven’t written one of these in soooo long!! And I know everyone says this but, WHERE HAS THE YEAR GONE?? 😧 It only feels like yesterday when I was starting my co-op teaching my little weasels in second and third class, now I’m heading back to college on Monday and going into my third year?!? So crazy.
MAC ‘Sketch’ has taken over my smokey eye look. Since I got it about a month ago I have used it every night out!! It’s a very simple, but sexy look and I only use two shadows. ❤ I have green eyes and it looks amazing, it really brings out the emerald in them 😉
For the past couple of months I have been using a spray, that I myself made, to help freshen up my brushes in between washes. For example, after I finish my makeup I will spray them so they are not as dirty the next day I use them! I wash my brushes weekly but that doesn’t mean I don’t want clean brushes throughout the week either right? 😉 So to learn how to make my little holy grail item then continue reading! ❤
Today’s look my loves is using Benefits’ Peek-a-Bright Eyes palette! I am in love with this small palette because you can use it for daytime looks as well as night looks depending on how much product you use ❤ It will look great on everybody especially Green eyes! I will be doing a daytime look today but keep a look out for a night out look coming up 😉
*The darkest colour has a purple undertone to it although it looks brown! 🙂
- Using a flat brush apply the matte cream colour all over the lid and up to the browbone. This will help with the pigmentation of the other shadows as well as the blending!!
- With the same flat brush and the pink hightlight colour apply this all over the lid!
- Now with a blending brush and a small amount of the darkest colour, apply this to the outer ‘V’ of your eye as well as your crease and blend back a forth in circular motions until you get that airbrushed look! You can keep going back in with more of this colour depending on how dramatic/subtle you want this look to be ❤
- Go back in with the highlight colour and appply it to the browbone and inner tearduct! Line the waterline and along the bottom lashline then apply your mascara 🙂
This look is so simple and quick because you only need the one palette! I love this look and have been wearing it a lot recently! Stayed posted for a nightime look using this palette soon 😉
