Matte finish with luxurious sheen? Plus a high staying power? No kidding!

Sephora Creme Lip Stain :3 I came across this lovely product on one of my makeup jobs. While we were mixing and customizing clients’ lip colors, one girl had this as her secret weapon. It’s small and light, which makes it perfect for travel and touch-up on the go.

((Makeup)) Sexy Symphony with Copper Red & Deep Brown

I am sure we all have some wonderful eyeshadows colours hidden in our drawers because the colours are hard to tackle. But practices make perfect- there’s nothing a determined beauty fanatic can’t achieve!

This is the Integrate Eyeshadow Palette I brought back from Taiwan a couple years ago- Br 780.

The beauty about Japanese Eyeshadows is that they are very transparent and sheer; the colour combination are tactfully placed together and usually simple to use for beginners for their high opacity.

Step 1- Always apply a wash of colour. It evens out the hyper-pigmentation of our eye lids to give it an even color- also to prevent creasing.

I have divided the colours into 4 steps so it’s easier to follow the steps. Use #1 and apply all over your eyelid. IE BR 780 has a creamy texture so I believe it does not only serve as a base colour but also serves as a colour enhancer- like an eyeshadow primer.

#2: the second colour is hard to choose. You can use either the deep brown as the contour or the reddish-orange that I chose here. Makeup is all about yourself and your imagination 🙂 so I decided to go wild and explore with the rarer colour.

I put #2 as the focus colouor and blend it towards the end corner of my eye. But I emphasize the colouring on the mid of my pupil to draw focus- creating some depth of the layering.

#3 is the deeper brown and I use it as a “prelude” for eyeliner. I press the colour into the base of my lashline.

#4 is the shimmering white silver colour; I dab a little on the opening corner of my eyes to brighten them up – and look more lifted.

Finally, I used liquid eyeliner and drew it on top of the colour #3 – so it look more natural than just a stiff dark line but at the same time provide more emphasis than a darker line of eyeshadow.

Ta-da! We are done!

The layering is smooth and natural. This is more of an evening date look that is a little sultry and sexy (depending on your dress 😉 but can also be worn for a day-out activities.

The colours are not overly pronounced or made-up. That is the look I go for and what I do for my clients ❤

Less is more- simplicity is best- this philosophy is my belief in makeup and beauty 🙂 I hope you had fun reading my post about a light yet sexy eye-look (if you have a nice little black dress on or a lovely gown) definitely great for a night-date or a prom night!
