When alone at home...

... girls play with their make-up! It's a well-known truth and this is precisely what I did today. I didn't celebrate Halloween by dressing up, so I guess I'm compensating.

Anyway, the look was loosely themed around Cleopatra-style make-up with some heavy eyeliner, bronzed cheeks and coralish lips. I think it could be made into a more wearable version with a bit less dramatic liner, or spiced up even more with darker lip colour.


The key here is to keep the eyeliner not too flicked at the outer corner and to work it inwards to give more of a cat eye effect. I used shimmery golden eyeshadow all over the lid and added some white frosty shade under the browbone and in the inner corners, but this would also look nice with different lid colors.

Products used:
Eyes:
CS Eye Poxy primer
Annabelle Vanilla Chilla all over the lid
Inglot no 111 on the lid
NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Cottage Cheese to highlight
CS black gel eyeliner on bent eyeliner brush
MaxFactor 2000 Calorie Curved Brush mascara
NYX no 104 corner eyelashes

Cheeks:
CS G Bronzer/Blush
Inglot no 84 on the apples of the cheeks

Lips:
MAC Jest lipstick

Have a great evening, gals! xxx
