Makeup Makeover #2 Subtle smokey eyes

Today I'm bringing you another makeup makeover (check my first one here), this time done on my beautiful cousin Agnieszka. While being on our holidays we spent a few days with my family and as my cousin wanted me to do her makeup we thought it would be nice to share it with you guys. Agnieszka wanted an evening look but considering it was a VERY hot Summer day ( I was sweating while sitting, glamorous, I know!) I didn't want to go very heavy with the makeup but still wanted to make it look a bit smokey and sultry. So I went with some bronze and gold shades for her eyes and kept the rest of the face very subtle and neutral. I love how her blue eyes popped with this look, so beautiful!

To even out my cousin's complexion I used the L'Oreal True Match foundation in the shade W3 Golden Beige over the L'Oreal Revitalift Magic Blur primer. Since her skin is on drier side I used the setting powder from the Makeup Revolution Contour Palette only to set the under eye concealer which was the Maybelline Fit Me in the shade #15. Then I lightly contoured and bronzed her face using the same Makeup Revolution Contour Palette.
To add a bit of colour to Aga's cheeks I applied a dusty rose blush #82 from Inglot and to highlight the cheekbones I used the Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm.

For my cousin's lips I used the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Pencil in Eastend Snob and topped it off with the Rimmel Nude Lipstick in the shade #45. These two products created beautiful pink nude shade which was something different for her as she usually wears deeper nudes or reds but she loved it.

To create the eye look I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette:
1 - White Chocolate to set the eyeshadow primer ( I just used a bit of concealer) and on the brow bone;
2 - Milk Chocolate in the crease as a transition shade;
3 - Black Forest Truffle all over the lid applied on top of a black base ( I applied a long the lash line black pencil and blended it upwards stopping before the crease);
4 - I defined the crease with Semi-Sweet;
5 - Triple Fudge to darken the outer corner and applied on the outer half of the lower lash line;
6 - Crème Brulee in the inner corner and inner part of the upper and lower lid.
I finished off the eyes with a few coats of Maybelline Sensational mascara and filled my cousin's brows using Rimmel Brow Pencil in Dark Brown.
And this is the finished look on my beautiful cousin.

I had so much fun to create a makeup look on another person and we both laughed a lot while taking the pictures. Nothing compares to a relaxed time with your loved ones.
