The other week on Instagram I posted my look inspired by the newly released Guerlain L’Heure de Nuit Palette (review, swatches) part of Guerlain Fall 2016 Makeup Collection (swatches, info, photos). Because you appreciate that photo a lot, I thought of posting a mini tutorial and show you the products used to create this look. Guerlain L’Heure de Nuit Palette features a combination of five eye shadows in gray and black colors, which makes it perfect for an evening makeup look. The shadows range from light to dark so you have the ideal combination of shades for a light as well as more defined and dark makeup.
I wanted to create a softer smokey eye, something that will be appropriate for afternoon as I was going out early that day, but in the meantime a makeup that will still look like something I’d wear late in the night. In order to create this look, my Shadow Shields from Andra Cosmetics were a real help, not only for achieving that perfect straight edge but also for keeping the darker shades fall-out on my cheeks. I don’t know if you tried Take a closer look and let me know what do you think.
If earlier today I was reviewing the new Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette from Guerlain Fall 2016 Collection (swatches), I’d thought I would surprise you with my Coque D’Or Makeup Look which I’m actually wearing right now. Each of the newly released Guerlain 5 Color Eyeshadow Palettes comes with two makeup tutorials included so it’s up to you if you want to follow the nude or smokey eye version. I personally decided to do my own version of Coque D’Or Makeup and you can see in the photos bellow what I’ve come up with. I wanted to combine a smokey with a cat eye look so I really like what it turned out to be in the end, just the perfect makeup for evening, not too dramatic but definitely one that will complement greened eyed ladies.
For this makeup I used one of my favorite foundations, MustaeV Skinny Tint Foundation, one that I actually kind of leave it sitting in my makeup desk for a quite a while now, and I’ve applied it with my pink Original Beauty Blender to create a smoother appearance. In order to create this smokey cat eye look I used the original Shadow Shields that I got from Andra Cosmetics a while ago and I must say they are absolutely amazing, for a perfect makeup application. They are so versatile and you can use them in so many ways for different makeup styles, like creating a perfect winged cat eye, a straight edge for shadow just like I did here or simply to protect under eye area from eye shadow fallout, especially when you are playing with pigments. Check the entire list of the products I used along with their reviews right after the jump.
Since I already unveiled to you the new MAC Spellbinder Shadow Fall 2016 Collection (swatches, video) it was only right to come up with a makeup look inspired by these upcoming shades. Today I choose to show you my Higher Power Makeup Look, that I actually wore last week and as you can already guess, the star product is MAC Higher Power Spellbinder Shadow (review, swatches, photos).
I’m just loving this new eyeshadow color, not to mention the formula and how it applies, so I’m inviting you to take a closer look and see how beautiful it looks on top of a creamy base. In the upcoming days, once I’m done posting individual reviews for the remaining shades, I will be showing you more makeup looks. So let’s get to it and check out the products used for this Higher Power Makeup tutorial.
I’ve heard about Andra Cosmetics on several occasions and I even took a glimpse at some of the products recently at one of the beauty exhibition hosted in my city, but we never been properly introduced until….Last week on a Wednesday I woke up with a gift from Andra and a such a wonderful letter that filled my entire day with joy. I’m not talking about makeup products, nail polishes, colors and limited edition items, but about tools and products that are must-haves for makeup artists, beauty bloggers and why not for everyone who is passionate about makeup. Me and Andra share the same passion for make-up and beauty so I know only beautiful things can come out of this.
