Blue-Brown quick Friday FOTD makeup look

Saturday 7 January 2012

Last week I asked what colour combinations to do with my Kiko eyeshadow palette and I got a few suggestions which I managed to get down to doing!
The first one was a blue-brown arab style request, but I chose to do a simple style one, paired with nude lips for the full arab effect! You can view the Kiko Palette and swatches of the shadows here for reference =)

Products used:
> UDPP & NYX JEP in Milk
> Kiko 01 Pure Colour Extravaganza palette - blue, brown and beige-gold shadows
> UD 24/7 eye pencils in Zero & Bourbon
> MAC penultimate eyeliner in Rapidblack
> Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara (black)
> Graftobian warm HD creme foundation
> UD Brow Box in Brown Sugar & Sleek matte black shadow
> Kiko Warm Tangerine Glow blush palette
> UD 24/7 lip pencil in Naked & Stardust in Andromeda

After priming the eye with both UDPP and then NYX JEP in Milk, I added the blue eyeshadow all over the eyelid with a flat shadow brush, followed by brown shadow in the crease with a fluffy brush, buffing back and forth and slightly upwards. The beige-gold shadow was used on the brow bone very lightly, blended down slightly too, but not heavily packed on.
Using UD 24/7 eye pencil in Zero I lined the inner eye (both top and bottom) then did the topliner with MAC Rapidblack penultimate liner and the bottom lashline/liner with UD 24/7 Bourbon liner.
To finish off the eyes, I coated the lashes with my newly acquired Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara, concealed under the eyes and filled in the brows with UD Brow Box.
For the rest of the face I used Kiko tangerine glow bronzer and filled the lips with UD 24/7 lip pencil in Naked topped with UD Stardust in Andromeda:
Et voila! It's just a quick look, that I did, quite simple looking but hope you liked it!
