I promised to create a look for you using the Dior Spring eye shadow palette I featured last week. I was supposed to post it last week, but it’s been a very busy Chinese New Year! I spent the few days visiting family and friends, and even met up with some childhood friends from school. I haven’t seen them since I left school 20 years ago, so it was nice. I don’t really have very pleasant memories of school somehow, but I’ve always been an emotional kid. Growing up and self discovery started after I left school for college and then university and I’m also excited to go visit my Uni friends in a few months!
Just to refresh your memory, here are the products I’ll be using. You can find the swatches in the previous post.
For this look, I used the bright coral shade all over my lid, and created a soft cut crease using the dark reddish brown. The pale pink (far left) was used as subtle highlight on my brow bone and I added the pale beige on the inner corners of my eyes. I also pulled the dark brown down to my lower lash line. The eye shadows are pigmented and easy to blend. They also stay on my lids without creasing or fading without any primer. My eyes are slightly oily so I always powder before applying any eye shadows. I decided to used the Pro Teal proliner to create a wing. The dark emerald green gives the coral a pretty contrast and makes the look a little more playful. I sometimes have a problem with pencil liners transferring to my under eyes, creating panda eyes but I don’t have any problems with the Pro Liner.
The Diorblush in Coral Twist is quite pigmented so I light hand is needed. The blush blends beautifully, so you don’t have to worry with clown cheeks. Because I wanted the eyes to be the focus, I kept the lips light. Here is Rouge Dior Nude in Charnelle.
I hope you enjoyed this look. My every day look is quite minimal, and most of the time, I use only one to two shadows, so it’s nice to play with this fake cut crease. I don’t like very dramatic looks, so I’ve made it look more natural and less Instagram fake. I always apply with a light hand and layer from there to minimize mistakes. This look also requires loads of blending. As you can see in the photos above, my eye shape takes away a lot of the colours. You can only really see it when I close my eyes.
Happy weekend my friends. Hope you enjoyed this look!
