Face of The Day – Shimmery + Smokey + Sexy

Today’s FOTD is a look i’d wear on any other day – to the office or out to play. It’s a brown smokey eye, just with a little more oomph than usual. The camera isn’t really picking up much of the shine on my eyes. Even with this much shimmer, i still think it’s office appropriate. But i guess that depends where you work right? ;p

Anyway, for this look, i’m using Lunasol’s 3 dimensional eyes 02 Soft Beige eyeshadow palette and glowing powder cheeks, as well as the recently featured Rouge Coco in 40 Charme from Chanel.

This eyeshadow is amazing – soft like butter, glides on like a dream and stays on the whole day with no creasing. And the blush, there’s a soft subtle glow and it doesn’t ‘melt’ away through the day. The lipstick is a god-send – that’s all i’m going to say about it.

I’m really discovering more and more products that i love and they each outperform whatever i’ve used in the past. This is great, but not so great for the pocket. But hey, i’m happy to be doing what i’m doing and i love to share my reviews with you so you can make informed decisions before making your purchases.

What do you think of this look? I’ve used an extremely easy way to do this smokey eye look. I layered a dark shimmery bronze over the entire eye lid, going slightly above the crease. Then i layered a taupe all over the lid again. No need for precise application. And for the last step, i just took a blending brush and softened the edges to create that smokey effect. This is faster and more convenient than using a crease brush to apply and blend color only into the crease, of which you still have to blend away the harsh edges again after.

Thanks for looking! There’s still Part 3 of my Metro haul coming up, so pls stay tuned! ๐Ÿ™‚
