A Soft Brown Eyelook with Givenchy!

This is the first time I have tried Givenchy eyeshadows, and must say I am pleasantly surprised by their quality... They are nicely pigmented, very smooth and blend perfectly... Givenchy Le Prisme Yeux - Quartuor [eyeshadow palette] is in the shade 76 Siena Silhouette, which is great for smokey eyes and that's what I've gone for! On the pics the peachy eyeshadow shade on the bottom left didn't come out too well, but the rest of the colours look pretty true to life... 

To create the look, I applied Benefit cream eyeshadow in Busy Signal as a base, and then that peachy shade went mostly into the inner part of the eyelid, blending the chocolate brown through the socket and outer-corner and also smudging it under the lower lashes to create that smoky effect... I wanted to keep everything warm toned this time, so stayed away from black eyeliner and mascara and instead chose bareMinerals Round The Clock Eyeliner in 7pm [a shimmery chocolate brown] smudging it above the upper lash-line and also on the waterline to intensify the look... 

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara in Black Brown is a nice option if you want a softer look... I used this mascara a few times now, it's a bit hard to get off as it is a long-lasting 24 hrs mascara, but I love the dark chocolate brown colour of it and it's the most voluminous and separating mascara I have ever come across... Lipstick - I find Topshop lipsticks to be amazing, the colour range is awesome and the creamy texture is great... The one I'm wearing is the shade Rumour Has It, it's a gorgeous beige nude with very flattering light warm shimmer, this nude has a bit more depth to it and gives you a very sexy lip without having too much or too little colour!
