Guerlain Midnight Hour Makeup Tutorial

Hello beauties!

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.
