HELLO AGAIN

Simple Brown Smokey Eyes

Friday, 2 January 2015



One thing I'm hoping to do in 2015 is push myself out of my comfort zone and wear my make up in different ways. I was kindly sent two brand new shades of the Colour Edition Eyeshadow* by the lovely team at Bourjois* just before Christmas, and hadn't got around to using them in the mad panic of travelling back to Wales and manically wrapping presents for family. I think these two shades are out early 2015 and I'm so in love with how gorgeous they are - especially considering how cheap they are - they're a bargain at £6.99 each. 

When creating this look, I knew I wanted to try some different products and when hunting around in my 'To Blog About' make up drawers I came across the shadows and boy am I glad I gave them a chance. I love how creamy and easy to blend these products are. The shadows glide on like a dream, giving the eyes a luxurious appearance that certainly gives higher end shadows a run for their money. 

Here's the list of everything I'm wearing If you'd like to try this look out at home.

Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow - Siberia
Concealer: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - Chantilly
Contour: NYX Blusher - Taupe
Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade - Medium Brown
Eyeshadow: (Base) Bourjois Colour Edition Eyeshadow - Flocon D'or*
Eyeshadow: (Lid) Bourjois Colour Edition Eyeshadow - Marron Givre*
Eyeshadow: (Smoke) YSL Tuxedo Travel Palette - Black Shadow*
Eyeliner: Maybelline Big Eyes Liner - Black
Eyelashes: Total Minks - Smouldering Minks Lashes*
Lips: Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon - Plum Russian*

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this look! Let me know in the comments! And if you'd like to see some of my make up looks before they make their way onto the blog, don't forget to follow me on Instagram!
