Soft metallic make-up look

 Do you want a going-out look that will have you out the door in a matter of minutes? How about a hint of glimmer and soft metallic look, something that is not to intimidating but easy to wear and has a subtle effect.Here are the products I 've used to create this look and some small details you might take in consideration if you decide to wear metallic eyeshadow.


FACE: Lasting Finish 25hour Foundation from Rimmel London, a great foundation that already has a primer, feels lightweight is a great make-up base to start with it (I wear 200 soft beige).
           NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage concealer for small imperfection and in the eye-area, in Beige (CJ04)
           CLINIQUE Transparent  Blended Face Powder to set and perfect my make-up .
           Lancome Teint Miracle Compact Foundation in 05 Beige Noisette to sculpt and shadow my face. I prefer the shadow-effect over the crazy contour technique.(Applied with a stippling brush on my forehead, cheeks, chin and jaw-line).
           Essence Silky Touch blush in 50 Sweetheart a gorgeous rose blush.
EYES : I prepared my lids with KIKO eye base.
For this look I used as color transition Cappuccino and Toast  from SLEEK Au Naturel  palette.
To lightly define my eye crease I used a brown eye shadow, MAC Eyeshadow Brown Down and I softly blended and defused the edges.To define my eyes I used the same shade on my lower lids but just in the outer corner of my eye.
On my upper lid from the inner corner to the outer corner I used a metallic pigmented soft eye shadow from essence in 35 Party all Night, a beautiful shade between rusty golden and bronze. I applied this metallic eye shadow with a sponge-tip applicator because otherwise this type of sparkly shadow goes everywhere. More of the metallic eye shadow was applied close to the lash line for added intensity.
  It’s pretty difficult to blend out and eye shadow perfectly so a blending/transition color does some of the work for you. When blending out eye shadows you want the darkest shade to fade into a lighter shade creating a gradient/ombre. A blending or transition color is an eye shadow used in between the crease color and the brow bone in order to create a gradient between colors. Using a blending color helps other colors blend more seamlessly into one another.
       NYC City Curls black mascara 
       Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner in black .
       Catrice Eye Brow Kit to shape my eyebrows

LIPS :  I toned down the lips with a nude-pinkish creamy lipstick, but you can also top your lips with sheer nude gloss.
 NYX  Matte Lipstick in Pale Pink
 Catrice Ultimate Colour 240 Hey Nude

This has been one of my favorite day time looks lately and is I think it is a good transition from summer time to fall season, and also easy to make and wear. Anyway a bit of sparky glittery thing never hurts. 
You can easily make this day time look in to a night time party look, you only have to add some false lashes and to switch from nude lips to red lips .

Let me know what you think about this look and if you would like to try it .

    1. Acolo mai lipseam :))) Alina, imi pare rau dar nu am timp suficient si pentru filmari si sincera sa fiu nu ma descurc la editari si alte chestii tehnice. Sper ca nu te-am dezamagit cu acest rspuns.

  6. Imi plac mult look-urile astea care stii ca sunt acolo, dar nu-s "in yo' face". Ceva classy, care sa atraga privirea intr-un mod placut. Mooor, mor cand vad "machiajele de vara" stridente si urat executate. Vorba aia, daca nu te pricepi, exerseaza un cat eye. N-ai cum sa dai gres cu el ;)
    Deci, imi place mult stilul tau, ca doar ti-am stalk-uit blogul de ceve vreme. Sa mai postezi, me likey ❤

    1. Iti multumesc mult pentru complimente :* Acum ceva timp, la un workshop de la Clarins mi s-a spus ca daca nu se vede femeia din spatele machiajului atunci machiajul nu este unul reusit, asa ca am reflectat la chestia asta foarte mult timp si am incercat sa invat ceva din ea.

    2. Cuvinte intelepte ;)
      Cum am spus si pe FB acum ceva vreme, machiajul trebuie sa ne dea incredere in sine, nu sa ne transforme in altcineva.
      Clean beauty, nu piti style :))
      Keep it up, mai vreau machiaje frumoase ❤
