This sort of make up used to be my go to for nights out but recently I haven't been rocking the retro look nearly as much. I wanted to break it out again and switch it up a little. I used some frosty white eyeshadow for once, I've had MAC Crystal Avalanche for around 3 years but I can't tell you a time I actually used it until today. Moving on! I starter by applying my Laura Mercier Silk Creme using a damp beauty blender and then concealed using Collection Lasting Perfection. What's new? To bronze up I used Givenchy Terre Exotique with quite a heavy hand, since dying my hair I've noticed I use way more bronzer! To finish off the face I took some NARS Douceur :)
My eyes are so simple, and I really love the outcome. I took the Zoeva Matte Primer to begin with and then blended out Collection Work The Colour Eye Pencil in Vanilla Sky to my lid, inner corner and lower lashline. Using a coloured base made the colours of the eyeshadow look so vivid! I blended out MAC Malt to my crease and up to just below the brow bone before deepening up my crease with MAC Swiss Chocolate. I took this a bit higher than usual because I wanted it to balance out the stark white which I wanted on my lid. Speaking of the lid I patted MAC Crystal Avalanche quite heavily over it and also into the inner corner. On the lower lashline I blended out Laura Mercier Longwear Creme Eye Pencil in Espresso for definition. As always I added a winged liner using my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner and applied a few coats of Collection Does It All Mascara. The real star of the show has to be NARS Red Lizard, a stunning deep red with a semi-matte finish. Next time I wear this I'll use a lip liner just for sake of ease because as you can see it's a bit of a shoddy application without one!
What do you think of white eyeshadow? Would you wear it?
