This look is probably the epitome of makeup I wore in November and it basically combines my two favourite things, red brown smokey and greige lip. Keeping it short and sweet, let’s get on with a tutorial.
When I don’t need my makeup to stay for 12+ hours, I love to use Chanel Vitalumière Aqua in B10 as it just evens out and adds light medium coverage while being very seamless on the skin. My new concealer for under the eyes is Maybelline Fit Me in Fair and despite my hatred for the packaging, the product itself is fab. Setting it all this Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in Fair and contouring/blushing with Nars Blush in Douceur (I had to get it online.).
I start the eye makeup with a bit of Makeup Geek Crème Brûlée dusted all over my socket line and then follow up with Frappé. I put Mac Sable all over the eyelid and then stamp MUG Cocoa Bear in the outer half of my eyelid and blend it into my socket as well. Finishing of with Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir on top lashes, Cocoa Bear smudged on the lower lashline and Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Ardent in the waterline.
Lastly, I line the lips with Rimmel Lip Liner in Cappuccino, filling in the whole lip as well and then apply Mac Lipstick in Honeylove, concentrating it mostly on the inside and blending it with Cappuccino so it doesn’t look like two separate shades.
It’s one of those colours that people stopped to ask me what I’m wearing so it must be good. Anyway, this was supposed to be up on Friday but last week was just crazy and to be honest, today doesn’t feel any better. I just can’t wait to get some time off and it doesn’t help that there was absolutely no light outside when I tried to take these pictures earlier. I hope you liked the look and normal schedule shall resume tomorrow!

[…] Rimmel Lip Pencil in Cappuccino – I’ve been meaning to pick it up as Nina loves and it’s a bargain. On its own, against my skin it’s a deep brown but if you dab a bit of Mac Honeylove, it’s the most stunning greige browny nude as seen in recent tutorial. […]
this look really suits your hair and skin tone, gorgeous xx

How do you like the Chanel foundation? I tried it in store once, but can’t bite the bullet on such a high price for such little pigmentation!
I’m almost done with this bottle so I’ve definitely loved it. I don’t find it sheer at all and my skin can’t take heavy foundations so this works out perfectly.
Really beautiful look and i love the chanel eye pencil along the waterline x
Thank you! I feel it just completes the look but is not too stark! X
Love the look. Big fan of greige over here, especially eye related stuff.
Greige is not really flattering on my eyes but I’m obsessed with it on my lips!
