We are finally almost to the weekend! It seemed like this week flew by really fast. I was gonna upload this look on Tuesday, but yesterday and the day before I was feeling super pregnant and don’t want to do anything except rest. #preggoproblems
I know I haven’t been the most active here on my blog, just because there are so many things I’m doing right now to prepare for the baby’s arrival. I haven’t even done any OOTD looks for my blog because hey, when you’re 8 months pregnant, getting clothes to fit right is really challenging and everything look funny on. If you want to see what I’m up to on the daily, follow me on Instagram and you could watch my daily Insta Stories too!
Today’s post is going to be a makeup look (as you can tell from the title). I realized that I have not done an all matte smoky look here on the blog. All of my looks are always so bronzy, or with some kind of metallic sheen and sparkles so I wanted to do something different. Matte eye looks are actually one of my favorite looks because it is so easy and it looks great on everyone! For this eye makeup, I used the Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette. The colors in this palette are so buttery soft and gorgeous. You could do a simple everyday look, or dramatic looks with this palette.
Here’s how I do it:
- Start of by priming the lids. I used Urban Decay Primer Potion.
- To set the primer, I used the shade “Classic”, a bone color starting from my brow bone and pat the color all over the lid.
- With a large fluffy brush (Sigma E40), I dipped it into the shade ” Bold”, a light brown shade and apply the color all over my crease as a transition shade.
- Using the same brush, I used the shade “Innocent” which is a tad darker than the first brown shade, and apply it just on the outer crease just to deepened the transition color.
- With a dense blending brush (like a MAC 217 or Sigma E25), I used the shade “Whimsy”, a warm brick brown shade and apply the color to the crease, focusing the color more on the crease and slowy blending the color upwards.
- With the same fluffy brush you used earlier and without picking up anymore product, blend the edges so all look well blended and seamless.
- Next, using a smaller and dense domed blending brush (Sigma E34) , dipped into the color “Edgy” and focus the color on the outer v and blend the color down to your lash line. You need to this slowly and have to keep packing on more color to get the desired intensity.
- With the same small domed brush, used the color “Smoked” to intensify the dark brown that I just apply on the outer v.
- Apply dark brown liner to your upper lash line and waterline, and smoked out the liner using a pencil brush with a bit of the color “Smoked” on it.
- Apply tons of mascara and this look is done. If you want the eye makeup to look even more intense, you could apply your favorite falsies!
For the rest of the face:
- Josie Maran Argan Oil as my primer
- Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation (Beige)
- NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard) mixed with Bare Minerals Serum Concealer (medium)
- Kat Von D Shade + Light palette (yellow powder) to set my concealer and the medium bronze shade (middle color) to bronze up the skin and contour.
- City Color blush (papaya)
- Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Highlight (shade 01) to highlight the high points of my cheeks, nose, chin and above the brows.
- Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray to set and lock everything in.
- Loreal Brow Stylist definer (dark brunette)
- Loreal Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel (medium to dark) to set the brows.
- Wet and Wild Mega Last Lipstick (Bare it All 902c)
Hope you like this makeup look. It’s really easy to do despite all the blending. But hey, the key to great eye makeup looks is to blend blend blend till no more visible harsh lines. 🙂
I’d probably will be able to do a couple more of makeup looks for the next month before I go on a long hiatus once the baby is here. Leave me suggestions on what makeup looks, or beauty related things you want me to do in the comment section below.
Until next time!XOXO ❤
