Make-up Makeover

A friend of mine Monika popped over today so that we could see how she manages to pull off a "dark eye" look.
She normally tends to wear minimal make-up but has always been a fan of dark eye make-up paired with a nude lip, however isn't able to make herself up in such a way and thus asked me to help.

She was also kind enough to allow me to share the results with my wonderful blog followers.

Here's Monika before:
...and a little after:
Here's what I used to create her look:

Leichner Camera Clear Tinted Foundation in Blend of Beige mixed with Blend of Biscuit
YSL Touche Eclat under the eyes
E.L.F. Studio Line HD Powder
MAC Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze

Illamasqua blush in Lover
Smashbox softlights to highlight

Kryolan matte eyeshadow in Anthracite mixed with Urban Decay's matte eyeshadow in Heist
Urban Decay matte eyeshadow in ABC Gum to highlight the brow bone
Urban Decay Virgin eyeshadow from Naked palette just in the inner corner of the eyes
Black eyeliner from MAC
Prestige My Blackest Lashes Mascara

E.L.F. Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph mixed with Runway Pink
Revlon Super Lustrous gloss in Peach Petal

What do you reckon...does this look suit her?


  1. She looks great. I definitely think she can pull of the dark eyes.

  2. I agree with FunnyFaceBeauty....she can def. pull of the smoky eyes! I loved the blush and lip color you chose!
