5 Makeup Looks for the City: Look 3

Posted on


My favourite spot in my house (besides my room of course) is the conservatory.  The ceiling and walls are made of glass, which makes it the perfect place to watch the rain fall or read a book in the warm sunlight.

The third makeup look I shot is just a subtle smokey eye... because to be completely honest I have a couple issues with eyeshadow. To start, I have really oily eyelids (yes, I've tried primer) so the eyeshadow gets all messed up and creases after about 20 minutes.  I also suck at blending in general so I can't really use more than two shadows.  That said, I do like to try a bit of definition here and there so I smudged one of my cheap eyeliners near my eyelashes and then applied some dark eyeshadow to the crease. 


base, Maybelline BB cream 'Medium'; Bareminerals i.d. 'Medium 3'
eyes, F21 eyeliner; Almay '030 for hazel eyes'; L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
lips, Maybelline Babylips 'Peach Kiss'
eyebrows, Maybelline Define-a-Brow 'Medium Brown'
jumper, Zara

Emma
