FOTD: Guerlain Liu Lip And Eye Calligraphy Palette

You’ve seen how I wear Turandot, so now is time for Liu, as promised. To see the swatches of this palette, please click here. I wanted to make it bolder but that wouldn’t be wearable. This is something I think will add a little twist to the look, but you can still wear it out to dinner. Less words more pictures. Let’s get to it shall we?

 

I don’t know why but every time I do an evening look, I don’t smile. LOL! Here, I used taupe all over my lids and then layered it with the bronzy gold on my upper and lower lash line. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corners using the pale beige shade. The liner is drawn on wet and as you can see, I drew 2 lines. One wings out as usual, from the outer corner of my eyes. The other one is drawn on a little higher, parallel to the lower line. I find it helps elongate my eyes, and it’s something different. As for lips, I used the warm red on my upper lip and the brighter red on my lower lip. You can’t really tell the difference unless you squint 😛

From this look, I used a cotton bud and took off the “wings”, and muted the lip colour to a stain. You get a wearable day look you can pair with just T-shirt and jeans.

 

 

For the rest of my face, I am wearing Shiseido Camellia Compact on my cheeks and Lunasol Water Gel Foundation on my face. The photos are taken under natural sunlight, but it was suddenly cloudy, suddenly sunny that day, which explains the cooler and warmer pictures 🙂 Here’s another shot.

 

 

I hope you liked this look!

 

xoxo Lily

 

 

 

  • You are flippin gorgeous, Lily!! LOVE this look! And love how natural the Shiseido Camellia shade looks on you paired with the dramatic red lips!

    • Aww, thanks Becca <3

  • Pretty! I’ve always loved the double wing thing that you do, though my own attempts have not turned out to be successful. Time to give it another go 😉

    • LOL! I can’t wait to see your version, Sunny!

  • Liyeun

    Big hug and thank you! I bought this the day it arrived kl but i havent touched it yet! It’s because i am not very confident how to make this work to work and which blush shud I pair it with! I extremely love the blusher now!!! Do u think, this palette wud look as nice with Guerlain Peach Boy or Dior rosy glow blush?

    • Hi Liyuen, you’re welcome 🙂 I would think Dior rosy glow would go well with the palette for sure. I’m not sure about Peach Boy because I don’t have it… have you tried using it yet?

  • Claire

    SO pretty! Love the wing and I totally understand what you mean by not smiling when doing an evening look 😛 I do the same but I don’t smile often in pictures, lol. The taupe in this palette looks devine with that orange, have you tried mixing them together? they look like a perfect couple 🙂

    • This palette is just too beautiful. All the colours go well with each other, which is also a bonus. Evening looks are meant to look sultry. Since I don’t know how to do that, I just act cool. LOL!!!

  • you look beautiful!
    i love the subtle and elegant look you created. 🙂
    i can’t get enough of this palette.

    • Thank you Lena <3 I can't get enough of this palette too!

  • Very pretty. I love the lip shade and of course I love those double wings!

    • Thanks Taylor <3

  • Jennifer

    Lovely palette on lovely you 🙂 I like the way you do your eyes! Red lips good great on you too. Haha, pouty for evening looks is cool and mysterious, no worries about that 😉

    • Aww thank you Jennifer 🙂

  • Hi Lily,
    I like it when you smile 🙂
    Liu is definitely one of the most raved palette this season. I am liking the eye color but I passed on this as I dislike red lippies 🙂

    • Aww, thank you Meryl 🙂 I actually have some friends who passed on the palette because while they liked the red lippies, they didn’t like the eye colours. LOL!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    You look GORGEOUS Lily! So pretty! I keep passing by this palette and not getting it, but I; think you’ve pushed me over the edge haha!

    • Aww, thanks Tracy! <3
