I’ve been wearing this makeup look non-stop lately, so I thought it was time for a tutorial on this look!
It’s a soft brown (I would dare to say day-time appropriate ) smokey eye look that suits lots of people. I added some separate false lashes for extra drama. I only added false lashes on the outer parts of my lashine to create a more winged cat-eye effect. The contouring and blush was kept minimal to draw focus on the eyes.
It was also the first time I used the L’Oréal Nude cushion foundation. There weren’t many shades available at my local drugstore, so I picked up 2 foundations (1 more yellow-toned and 1 more pink-toned) . I would say that neither of them is my exact right shade, but I believe I can get away with using them if I blend them out on my neckline.
I have quite oily skin, so I definitely needed more powder during the day. I think I will love this foundation during the winter months when my skin can use a bit more moisture.
The Urban Decay products that I used in this tutorial are heaven... they are so creamy and they blend well. The highlighters in the blush palette have been my go-to highlighters since I received the palette. Let' just say that I'm a big UD fan!
