Sunday Stash Shopping #104: Brown eyes

The day is cool. It rained in the morning and the weather allowed me to wear a very soft fine knit sweatshirt. I wanted soft eyes, so decided on different hues of browns, just to warm up the light grey top I was wearing. I first prepped my eyes with Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Taupe. I bought this when I was in Hong Kong. On top of it, I used Clinique Cocoa eye shadow to darken the rim of my eyes. On my mobile lid, I brightened slightly using Rimmel eye shadow in Millionaire, which I hunted down when I was in Perth last. For added definition, and also to lengthen my eyes a little, I used MUFE Aqua Eyes waterproof eye pencil in 2L, a dark brown, to extend the end of my eyes. Lastly, I amped up my natural lashes with Dior Diorshow Pump ‘n’ Volume mascara. This mascara doesn’t lengthen, but adds mega volume! I really like how the eyes turned out. Soft but defined.

 

 

I didn’t really want any blush, but wanted some warmth so on my cheeks, I applied the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour in Medium Light. I didn’t use any foundation here, just some concealer around my eyes and nose and a light dusting of loose powder. I’ve been enjoying the Etude House Big Cover Concealer and Laneige loose powder on top of Bobbi Brown Illuminating Face Base. I’ll talk about them in another post.

I was debating what to wear on my lips. I tried on the understated Urban Decay Ex Girlfriend but it was too light for my liking. So I decided to mix 2 different lip colours. I recently bought the 3CE Velvet Lip Tints in Daffodil and Taupe. Stylenanda offered free worldwide shipping one day, so I took advantage of the promo. Here, I used Daffodil at the centre of my lips and Taupe on the corners. Then I smudged out the edges for a diffused more worn in look.

 

 

So here’s the final look! I’ll talk more about the 3CE lipsticks in a separate post if you want. I still want to use it more to have a better feel of them. Do you like this look? Brown eyes can be boring to some, but I love it because it goes with any lip colour, to be honest. And I think I’ll wear this look a few more times. Have a happy Sunday everyone!
