EOTD: Tuched by an Angel

EOTD: Tuched by an Angel

Ever since I started hangin' at the forum for makeup addicts I've been playing around with my makeup a lot more. I don't know why really, maybe because I practically feel a surge of inspiration coming through my computer screen every time I log on? I love chatting with all my fellow makeup addicts, because.. they understand and share the fascination, the joy, the excitement for the tiniest little makeup related thing. Anyway, I wore this look last Thursday when I went out to meet two of the magnificent girls, Tone and Renate. I'm quite pleased with the outcome, and this might have been my gateway to an even smokier and darker look. A little scary, but oh so fun!

Walkthrough

I always start by filling in my eyebrows, and this time I chose Anastasia Brow Wiz in «Brunette». Nowadays I alternate between the product mentioned above, and an angled brush used with M·A·C Brun eyeshadow. I then primed my eyelids with my trustworhty primer from Make Up Store, and used the MUS 114 to pat MUS Tuch on both lids - taking care to blend it into the crease and a little upwards. When I felt pleased with the shape and blending I used my M·A·C 239 to pack some more color on the lid to make the color a little denser. Sigma® Performance E21 is the perfect brush to highlight the highest point of the brow with my favorite M·A·C Femme Fi, and also the inner corner of the eye. To make my lashes appear a little denser I used my Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner to tightline, a useful trick when you don't feel confident enough to draw on that perfect eyeliner. MUS Snowflake is perfect to brighten up the waterline, even though I think a less stark white would have suited me better. I finished off the look with one coat of Max Factor Xperience Volumizing Mascara, another favorite drugstore pick.

I found this look a little bit intimidating at first, it's the darkest smoky eye I've tried out and I was a little scared I had gone overboard with the whole idea. Within minutes it had grown on me, and I ended up really liking it! Unfortunately the photo didn't turn out perfect, it's a little blurry and the color didn't show up quite as dark as it looked in person.

  1. Kjempefint Smile

    Tror jeg må nedom byen og se på Tuch. Det jeg har sett av den på blogger til nå frister veldig !

    • «Tuch» fortjener absolutt en ekstra kikk. Jeg var litt ‘meh’ etter at jeg kjøpte den, men så hadde jeg aldri sett for meg at jeg skulle bruke den over hele lokket. Fargen er nydelig. I overgangene blir den brun, sånn at det ser ut som om man har brukt to skygger – uten å egentlig være duochrome. En positiv overraskelse! Tusen takk, Nina. Smile

      • Kikket – og tok den med hjem Wink

        Den blir mer blå på men fargen sitter fint hele dagen Smile

        Var litt skeptisk i starten for fargen virket litt “stiv” med det samme men med en 239-børste og litt tålmodighet med påføring og blending er jeg superfornøyd Smile

  2. Nydelig, både live og på bilde! Virkelig kledelig, og ikke for mørkt i det hele tatt! Smile

    • Åh, tusen takk for fantastiske komplimenter! Grin Kan jeg sende bilder til deg hver gang jeg gjør noe skummelt, sånn at du kan peppe meg opp til å bruke looken offentlig? Grin «Tuch» ble iallfall veldig mye mindre skummel med sånn tilbakemelding. Wink

  3. Really really pretty Smile
    It suits your beautiful eye color so well Smile
    Hugs
    xx
