Today's Eyes & Lips


ATM I'm in the car on my way to see my bf, but I thought I'd mention what I've used on my eyes and lips today:) (this is the first time iv used the blogger app to write a post so if it's a bit of a mess I'm sorry!)

So today I've gone for a natural, smokey bronzed look today. To get this look I used my Urban Decay Vice 2 palette & Real Technique eye brushes.

First I started off adding Strike all over the lid with the RT base shadow brush, this is a beautiful golden colour. I then went in and added Toxic over Strike just to add more of a colour to the corners of my eyes and over the lid. 
I then used my RT deluxe crease brush to add Ambush to the corners and crease of my eye to make it more smoky. The next thing I did, using the same brush was add a lil bit of Radar to the corners and crease just to give it a lil bit more of a bronzey colour. I continued to blend this out. 
I also added a tiny lil bit of Poison using the first brush again to the crease to make it more smokey and to deepen the colour. 
The next thing I did was add a tiny bit of the first colour, Strike to the centre of the lids and blended out to bring the look together and give more of a neutral feel. I used the Real Techniques detailer brush for this.
Finally I added Ambush under my waterline with the RT angled eyebrow brush to define the eyes. I then finished the look using my Rimmel Day to Night mascara in black. 
I would usually add Dope to the inner corner of my lid for a highlight, but I was in a bit of a rush this morning and left the house before doing so! 

My lip look is much simpler:) before I started on my eyes I added Stawberry Chapstick to give a lil moisture. I then applied my eye makeup and used Topshop's Pillow Talk to the lips:) 

You can find swatches of all the colours I used in my January Favourites.

So that's my look for today guys, have a great day everyone!
