LOOK OF THE DAY // Blue Eyes and San Paulo

I sat down to film a haul video, and decided I wanted to do something different than my usual neutral eyes. I was feeling like going a bit smokey, but didn't want a black or a brown one so I opted for blue instead. I used The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes palette in no 20, the shade Indigo blue all over my lids, and starlight silver to highlight the brow bone and inner corner of my eyes. I smudged the darkest shade, midnight black on my lower lash line and finished with Maybelline The Falsies mascara.

For my lips I actually wanted to wear a nude lipstick, but for the fear of looking washed out in my video,  I chose to wear a pink shade very close to my natural lip colour instead. I wore the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo. These lipsticks are so well formulated, pigmented, and very buttery in spite of  being matte. I wish I had bought more colours from this range.

I wanted a heavier coverage than usual so I went for the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in No 53 as my base. I love the dewy finish of this foundation, it makes your skin look like it's well rested and healthy. To combat the inevitable T-zone oil and set the foundation in place, I dusted Rimmel Stay Matte powder all over my face, and finished the look with Lakme Absolute baked blush in Night Sheen to highlight my cheekbones just a little.
