Sunday Stash Shopping #43: Smoke

I like the convenience of eye shadow sticks. Swipe, blend, go. There are 2 I really like, one from Bobbi Brown and another from Laura Mercier. Bobbi Brown’s stay longer on my lids, but the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are creamier and easier to blend. I only have Amethyst and Khaki, and am looking at Sapphire and Plum. Then one fine day, Smoke was on sale for half the price, so I picked it up too. I don’t have any cream blacks which can be an excellent base for lighter colours.

Here, I am wearing Smoke on its own. I want to show you that black can be worn on its own without looking too dramatic. The trick is to blend, blend and blend some more. I paired it with pink lips and cheeks for a softer more youthful overall look.

For base, I used the RMS ‘un’cover up on places I want to brighten then set with powder. On the cheeks, I’m wearing Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick in Pink and on my lips, Dior Gaia (sorry, this is LE).

Hope you enjoyed this look. Happy Sunday!
