Super fun and dramatic! Love the “diamond” affect!! xoxo sj
Thanks SJ! Glad you enjoyed it 😉 x
This is a beautiful look – golden shades really suit you! How did you like your nails? 🙂
Thanks Melissa! I *loved* the nails, great length for everyday wear 🙂
Eeep, LOVE!!! Not something I would personally wear, but I love the variety of cosmetics you use!!!
Thanks TP 🙂 I tried to bring some new brands to the table! x
I just did a two parter post on Aussie drugstore brands and the best find I came across was the Australis “Cray for Colour Eye Crayons” – basically cream eyeshadow pencils – freaking amazeballs! Was not expecting them to perform anywhere near as well as they did, especially on my oily eyelids. Definitely worth checking out 🙂
Ooohhh! I will check out these crayons, I’ve only tried a few things from Australis (sadly the Velour Lips flaked off in patches, it was strange).
Reallly striking look, reallly fun video. Love the eye shaping science breakdown, those little drawn on diagrams are one of the greatest (geekiest) things about asain beauty tutorials and you make excellent use of them here!
I’m so pleased you liked it 🙂 My approach to makeup is *so* geeky lol!
Your foundation mix, will that be good for a combo skin? I like a sort of natural finish but sometimes get a tad shiny in my T zone. Also I’m a bit conficted on my colour choice. I’m a B20 for Chanel perfection lumiere, was matched to #4 for GA luminous silk and S202 for Elia faas concealer. What colour would you recommend? I think it I’m similar to you.
For the true match and healthy mix
If you’re GA in shade 4, you are pretty much exactly my skin tone. The foundation mix is good for combo skin and lasts very well, you could try mixing the shades I use since we appear to be of similar colouring.
Awesome, thanks Karima 🙂
You look really beautiful, your skin is beautiful and you are totally pulling this look off.
