It was another one of those days where I wanted a neutral, wearable look but I still wanted to play around with a colour I wouldn’t ordinarily wear. Lavender isn’t a colour I’d usually put on my pale skin. Especially with the insanely dark circles that plague me under my eyes. Regardless, I went ahead and took the plunge and this is what I came up with.
I started with the lavender side of the duo and placed it down all over the mobile lid and a little above the crease. I then took the lighter shade through the brow bone and on the inner corner. I used an angled brush to put the lavender along the lash line on the outer two thirds and then the lighter colour for the inner third. I decided to keep it simple and leave it at that with lashings of mascara.
On the cheeks I took a flat, mid brown powder blush and lightly swept it through the mid section of my cheek. I didn’t touch the apples or the bone at all.
For the lips I kept it very nude and used one of my all time favourite lipsticks. I started with MyFace Lip Liner pencil in Fair Nude to fill the lips then Nars Honolulu Honey. I then gave it a little extra with a cream finish beige gloss.
The base here was MAC Face & Body, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Jane Iredale Mineral Powder.
