Very excited to share my love for this gorgeous YSL Eye Shadow Duo palette in 35 Caramel Tan! Warm brown is the most flattering colour on any complexion, I find... I got so many compliments on this eye look... When I saw this palette it took me right back to my teenage years when I used to adore my best friend's older sister's make-up, she wore this black eyeliner with beautifully warm brown smoked eye... It really brought out her eyes, she had brown eyes but liked to wear blue eye contacts [it was the 90s!] and it looked amazing with either eye colour! So I decided to walk down the memory lane of what was my early make-up adorations...
This is how I created this look: I used MAC Paint Pot in Nubile as a base and applied the lighter eyeshadow shade all over, then blended in the dark caramel shade into the socket and also the outer-corner to smoke it out a little... The lighter shade has nice shimmer to it and the darker is a satin finish, very gorgeous combination! The YSL eyeshadows are one of my top favourites, they are smooth as silk, blend like a dream, and have a beautiful colour pay off!
To create that striking effect, which brightens the white in your eyes more [which makes you look instantly more radiant] I used my beloved Chanel Long-Lasting Eyeliner in 88 Noir Intense... Winged the eyeliner a little, also applied it on the waterline, and dotted it along the lower lashline to keep it soft, blending it with a sponge applicator and with a little of the darker eyeshadow shade not taking it too low this time... Speaking of applicators, I love how in this palette they click into place and do not fall out unless you want to take them out, great little bonus! And for the lips I found this lovely nude lipstick shade in my collection - Chanel Rouge Coco in 79 Plumetis, also very flattering and not too nude, with a gorgeous light gold shimmer to it!
