For today’s make-up look I went with one my favorite make-up combinations again: soft smokey eyes in warm fleshy tones, paired with peach blush and a subtle nude lip. Take a look!
On my eyes I’m wearing all Makeup Geek. Using Cosmopolitan (eyelid), Frappa (outer eye corner + crease), Artemis (inner eye corner) and Aphrodite from the Makeup Geek Manny MUA Eyeshadow Palette I created a subtle smokey eye in warm peachy tones.
In today’s make-up look I want to show off my new Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub + Lip Balm in Pink Framboise. If you’re a regular here on the blog you’ll know that I’m absolutely crazy about the Clinique Sweet Pots, so I figured I’d give this latest color in my collection a little extra love. Take a look!
Since Pink Framboise is so subtle – as are all Clinique Sweet Pots – I decided to keep the rest of my make-up subtle and neutral as well so nothing would overpower the lip color.
On my eyes I’m wearing the Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow in Cinnamon (eyelid), Nude (outer eye corner + crease) and Vintage (upper lash line) which I paired with plain black eyeliner and mascara.
I’m officially not allowed to share any specifics about Estée Lauder’s upcoming lipstick release for spring yet, but let me tell you this: it’s gonna be good, it’s gonna be big, and you’re gonna LOVE it! And by “it” I might mean 30 (!!!) new lip colors with 4 different finishes, though at this point I can neither confirm nor deny that*. The new collection won’t be released until next season though, so in the meantime I’ve been having some fun with one of the new shade options in the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre Lipstick (44 CHF) range: Melon. * I’m so totally confirming it
You know I love my peaches, my corals and my oranges (and I have a feeling they love me back!) so it was pretty much love at first sight between Melon and me.
For eyes I went with a peachy smokey eye featuring three shades from the amazing Makeup Geek x Manny MUA Eyeshadow Palette: Luna (eyelid), Frappa (outer eye corners & crease) and Artemis (inner eye corners). Pair with black eye pencil and mascara, et voilà, a subtle yet striking smokey eye in warm peachy colors. I don’t know about you, but I just loooooove shades like this, can’t get enough of them! I hate how much of the intensity gets “lost” on camera though. I feel like you have to go waaay overboard with make-up in order for it to really show up in a video.
