Anniversary Palette Arab FOTD makeup look

Wednesday 17 August 2011

After I reviewed and swatched the Anniversary Palette (here), I thought I'd show you a makeup look I've done with it recently; I plan to do tons more as I totally love this palette and all the combos, but for now, here's the one (using the Toy camera feature on my camera!):
Products used:
> UD tinted moisturiser in Bulletproof
> UDPP (original) 
> NYX JEP in Milk
> UD 15 year anniversary palette eyeshadows: vanilla, tainted, omen, evidence, junkshow
> MAC studio concealer - NC35
> UD ink for eyes in Zero
> UD 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
> UD UrbanLash in Sly
> UD Brow Box in Brown Sugar
> UD Glide on Cheek tints in Score and Crush
> UD Baked Bronzer in Toasted
> UD Super Saturated Lip Colour in Big Bang

First I applied the tinted moisturiser all over my face (I'm a shade darker since my holiday!), filled in my brows, then primed the eyes with UDPP and NYX JEP in Milk.
I started with Vanilla on the inner corner of the eyes, blending it across the lid a little and using what was left over for the brow bone. I then used Tainted on the middle of the eyelid followed by a little of Evidence on the outer corner, but blending it upwards. I then used Omen in the crease and blending downwards into Evidence. Finally, I used Junkshow in between the highlight on the brow bone (Vanilla) and Omen, blending down again, into Omen/Evidence.
For the eyeliner I used Zero eye pencil to line the inner eye (top and bottom), then used the Ink for Eyes in Zero to make a topliner flick and bottom liner flick. In between the flicks I used Vanilla with a small brush, then went over the lines again to make them darker.
I used the UD lashes in Sly as they were nice and full for this "Arab" look, then concealed under the eyes and used a bit of the UD false lash mascara on the bottom lashes.
For the rest of the face I used the Toasted bronzer on cheeks, forehead and chin, then a bit of Score & Crush glide on cheek tint.
To finish off the look I used the new Super Saturated Lip Colour in Big Bang:
And the full face:
I totally love the colours and only used them softly for this look.. but I plan to use the more darker colours for my next look, so please do send me some requests if you'd like any particular eyeshadows used!
