Hi guys ,how are you doing today ?
I hope everything is ok and today I want to share with you an easy and simple makeup look I have been loving wearing recently.
As I have already told a million times I am trying to use up my makeup palettes and eyeshadows and recently my go to have been my Anastasia beverly hills ones.
The quality of these products is incredible as probably all of you already know so I am not gonna focus too much on the actual product because the most important thing is not the color of the palette or the brand ,but the look in itself since you can recreate it as you want with what you have ,as always you don’t have to go out and buy something you don’t have just because I am using it or some sort of makeup artist is using it, you do you.
Anyway ,I love this kind of look because is so easy and I think is the new way of wearing a liner without the downsides ,like you intentionally can be messy and not precise and the smoked effect is your best friend of you like me ,first of all are not so good and precise with makeup and second of all when I turned 25 I noticed my eyelid changed and they are definitely not the same anymore.
Gravity is not your best friend once you get old and so ,wearing some sort of makeup and especially eye makeup ,changes so much and you have to adjust your techniques to your shape and form.
When I try to wear liquid eyeliner my eyelid covers it now that it has fallen a little bit so thank god we have Katie jane Hughes that shows us a way to make it work but when I don’t want to put too much effort in it or I just don’t have the time ,a smoked powder liner is really the best you can achieve.
A color slighlty less obvious to me is this rich dark red eyeshadow from the Soft glam palette and I love strangely how it works with my brown eyes, although to some may be the most boring thing ever.
The most important thing in this kind of look is our instruments and in this case I have to be the annoying person who tells you “you need this “but it is kind of necessary and the fact is that a good angled tiny and precise brush ,will do all the work for you.
I have this old morphe one I bought a couple of years ago and I have never used it so much as I am right one when I do my makeup like this.
The density allows you to be precise and quick ,the angled bristles placed the color and the powder exactly where you want them . It really is the best tool you can use. It helps you to be precise and quick and there’s nothing better than that.
I am not gonna go in depth about my base since it is the basic same makeup look and also because I wanted the main focus of this little blogpost to be my eyeliner and the way we can create and adjust our makeup skills to our habits and our lives.
As you already know I love a quick and easy no makeup makeuo especially when it comes to complexion and base products.
Anyway, I hope you are doing great and I hope you are safe and healthy and I will see you soon folks!
