Make-Up Look | Brown + Burgundy Smokey Eyes

You’re probably getting sick of me constantly posting looks featuring my Coastal Scents Custom Eyeshadow Palette, but I just can’t help it. I love my Coastal Scents Hot Pots! That’s the beauty of putting together your own eyeshadow palette: every single shade you pick is a shade you’ll love and use and – in my case – throw at people’s faces every chance you get. Today’s look features shimmery golden brown and red on the eyes paired with a peachy nude on the lips. Take a look!

Let’s start with eyes. I went with Coastal Scents Boca Mocha – a shimmery golden brown – on the eyelid and Coastal Scents Pomegranate Red – a matte red – in the outer corner of the eyes and crease. Blending Pomegranate Red into Boca Mocha makes it look less pure red and more burgundy, and turns it into a perfect color match for the Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria that I’m wearing on my lower waterline. I completed the eye look by smudging a bit of Coastal Scents Chocolatier against my lower waterline, highlighting my inner eye corner with Coastal Scents Snow Bunny and applying a lick of mascara (Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara) and a subtle wing just in the outer corners of my eyes (Sephora Fingertip Eyeliner).

On my skin I’m wearing my trusted combination of the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer and the Morphe Banana Powder, and for blush I went with Crochet from my Sleek Blush By 3 Lace Blush Palette. And on my lips is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Nude Beach, a subtle peachy nude that balances out the heavy eye look.

Make-up look | Colorful smokey eyes for summer

If you saw my Coastal Scents post from earlier this week you know that I recently filled up my Coastal Scents custom eyeshadow palette with five new Hot Pots. Today I’m featuring three of those Hot Pots in a colorful summer look. Check it out!

✿ Vibrant Lime Green (bottom row 1st shade), Sundried (bottom row 2nd shade), Pomegranate Red (bottom row 4th shade) ✿

First I applied Sundried all over my eyelid before blending it with some Pomegranate Red in the outer corner of my eye and crease. Then I applied a bit of Vibrant Lime Green in the inner corner of my eye for an added touch of color. It’s an unusual combination for sure, but I personally think it really works.

Finish off with some black liquid eyeliner along the upper lash line, a few coats of mascara on the lashes and some burgundy red eye pencil on the lower waterline et voilà, a warm summery smokey eye with plenty of color!

Make-up look | Colorful Inner Eye Corner

Waterlines, upper lash lines and inner eye corners are the shoes, handbags and scarves of the make-up world: they make great accessories and they’re perfect for adding a colorful finishing touch to a look. A bit of purple eye pencil on the lower waterline, some gold eyeliner along the upper lash line and bam, all of a sudden that plain eye look looks a whole lot more fun. And the same thing goes for the inner corners of your eye. Know how the experts always tell you to add some light to your inner eye corner to brighten and open up your eyes? Well, why stick to just highlighting when you can also add a splash of color from time to time? For today’s look I paired a gold and brown smokey eye with a touch of turquoise blue in the inner corner of my eyes. Take a look!

I used the gold and brown shade from my MAC x Guo Pei Morning Light Eye Shadow x4 to create a subtle smokey look to which I then added some color with a bit of the Inika Turquoise Mineral Eyeshadow in my inner eye corners.

I completed the eye look by tightlining my upper and lower waterline using black kohl pencil and drawing a subtle wing along my outer upper lash line using my beloved MAC Lionbabe Liquidlast Liner.

As per usual lately I kept my skin light and breathable with just some NYX HD Finishing Powder over the Kiss Me Sunkiller Super Lasting Base. On my eyebrows I used the Lavera Eyebrow Pencil in 02 Brown, on my cheeks I’m wearing True Berry from the Smashbox L.A. Lights Blush & Highlight Palette and for lips I went with the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Discreet.

And just in case you’re thinking that there’s no way you can get away with a color like Turquoise in the inner corner of your eyes: gold, yellow, silver and fresh leafy green also make great accent colors. Just make sure that you don’t go too dark – you don’t want your eyes to look smaller or squished together – and you’ll be alright.
