Beauty: Pink & Taupe

On April 25, 2014 by Lau

I don’t tend to do many beauty-type posts but it’s something that I love reading on the blogs that I follow so I thought why not give it a go myself! Phill actually snapped this photo of me getting ready for my friends wedding a couple of weeks ago without me knowing, but one day I might actually smile for the camera for another beauty post!

I’m usually one for a brown or grey smoky eye but wearing a pale pastel pink dress for the wedding I decided to go all rosy on the eyes too. If you have green/blue eyes then definitely give Mac’s Jest a try – it’s one I don’t see much hype about but I absolutely love it!

To smoke it out a little I used Mac Satin Taupe and Mac Smut. I then added Smut closely along the top lash line to fill out the lashes and added a touch of Satin Taupe and Smut on the lower lash line. To add a highlight to the inner corners I used a tiny amount of Mac Nylon. I finished the eyes with a few coats of Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless mascara which I absolutely love!

For the base I used Clarins Beauty Flash Balm followed by Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation which is the perfect combination for me (another post to follow on this duo!). And for lips I kept it quite natural with a little peachy lipgloss.
