DANCING IN THE SHADOW


I think the key to looking sexy is to make it look effortless. Like you didn’t try. ‘This is how I look all the time.’ Right? Well here’s 3 looks that you can achieve this effortless sexy style and with no more then 3 products!

In most cases I think less is more. The simpler the better. Here I applied MAC Clear Lip Glass on Audrey’s lids. I rimmed her Eyes with Chanel Le Crayon Khól pencil in noir (black) in the inner rim of her eye. I like to do this a couple of times gently squeezing the eye in between tries. This will push the pencil into the lash line giving the eye a soft smokey affect with out applying a shadow. I finished Audrey’s look off with a simple nude lipstick, try Bobbi Browns Beige 02. When applying nude lipsticks i like to use my finger. It goes on a lot softer, making it more subtle. There needs to be a hint of your natural lip colour showing through when your wear a nude lipstick. It stops you from looking harsh or washed out.

This is by far one of my favourite looks. All I’ve used here is Cover Girls Liquiline Blast Eyeliner which I’ve shaded in from the lash line up right up to the socket of the eye. Dont forget to do under the eye as well. Staying as close to the lash line as you can. The consistency of this pencil is just beautiful. Its soft and creamy and has the most amazing staying power. To blend in the edges of the pencil I simple work in the pencil with my fingers, blending the pencil up and out in a dabbing, rolling motion, filling the natural contours of the eye.  To finish, again I add MAC Clear Lip Glass to the centre of the eye lid to give a dewy finish. A Tip; Keep skin and lips semi matt so to contrast again the subtleness of the glossy eye!

 

This look is definitely not for the faint hearted. I applied  Illamasqua Medium Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E  (black)  filling the entirely lip in. I then blend the pencil with my finger into the lip and softening the edges with the warmth of my fingers. To finish this strong sexy lip I applied a deep plum lip gloss, Rimmel Stay Glossy Yours Forever is perfect as it has great staying power. Both products together mix up to make a vampy plum lip. My final touch to finish this look is a cool sexy lash. I apply Lancomé Hypnose Mascara in deep black to the lashes both top and bottom (see Lashes and Liners for my tips on applying mascara). A tip; keep skin relatively matt or demi matt to contrast against the glossiness of the lip!

Enjoy x MM
