GRUNGE LINED EYES FOR S/S 2014
Foundation: For this look I wanted to have a hint of glow on the skin and the MAXFACTOR‘s Skin Luminizer Foundation (RSP R199.00 Exclusive to Clicks) was perfect for this. It feels like a mousse at first, but then quickly sets into a light velvet finish with a soft glow. I love that the “glow” is a real glow and not a shimmer. This foundation helps to even out the skin with a light to medium cover.
Concealer: BOURJOIS 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream (RSP R109.95) has been one of my handbag heroes. I love everything about it. It gives me a medium to full cover and sits evenly under the eyes. It is long-lasting and easy to apply. I little goes a long way. I applied this under the eyes, on my pigmentation spots and around the edges of my nose.
Bronzer: To add some colour and contour I applied my CATRICE Sun Glow Matte Bronzing Powder for Darker Skin (RSP R89.95) on the sides of my nose, the sides of my forehead, under the jaw-line and in the hollows of the cheeks.
Brows: For a soft defined eyebrow apply a brow powder instead of a pencil. I used my ELIZABETH ARDEN Beautiful Color Brow Shaper and Eyeliner in Fawn 02 (RSP R165).
Eyeliner: For this look you would want to use an eye pencil that glides on easily and lasts long. I used my BLACK OPAL Automatic Eye Lining Pencil in Licorice 02 (RSP R80.00) to the top and bottom lash-line. On the bottom lash-line I drew the line up to half way of my eye, and then blended it in with an angled brush.
Mascara: Another absolute favourite for mascara is my SENSAI 38degrees Volumising Mascara (RSP R495). This mascara has everything you would ever want from a mascara. The curved and tapered brush makes it easy to apply, it curls your lashes, adds volume and perfectly separates the lashes to make them look fuller. The formula does not smudge and is water-resistant. It is also easy to remove!
Lips: Keep the lips natural or nude. I used my LOREAL L’Extraordinair in 101 Rose Melody (RSP R169.95) It is a Revolutionary lip product that introduces Rouge Oil. A combination of 4 Oils that provide the Colour of a lipstick, the Shine of a gloss and the Comfort of a balm. It is smooth, hydrating and non-sticky.
If a solid lined eye is not your thing, change this look up a touch and smudge the liner a bit more for a smokey look.
