A bold eye look with a bold lip is without a doubt quite daring, but this look I created with a few bits from The Body Shop* beauty range really had me feeling good. As well as for a true romantic date, I find this look perfect for this time of year and even for Christmas Day. Want to find out what I used?
To start I used the Eye Colour Stick in Siberian Quartz (top), a gorgeous brown purple, pigmented enough to wear by itself for a subtle but elegant wash of colour. Then the True Romance Eyeshadow Quad is what really made the look that extra bit special. This palette is naturally inspired by shades that compliment each other, with both true mattes and metallics that you can use for a day or night time glam. I find these shades are quite flattering with all eye colours and skin tones to, which I find so great for a quad shadow palette with only a select few shades.
So, after applying and blending the Eye Colour Stick I used the top right shade over the colour stick with a damp shader brush, and deepened the outer corner and crease with the deeper buying priligy brown shade underneath. For the lower lash line, I used the bottom left shade to smoke out the look, this is a very pretty dark brown with cooler undertones, and this also helped the look come together. With the light cream shade I highlighted my brow line and also popped this in the inner corner for that extra bit of brightness. This eye look is super simple and really quick, overall it took me about 5-10 minutes with adding the lashes.
For the lip I used the Matte Lipstick in Osaka Plum, a true wine red. It’s a little brighter than I imagined, but it works really well for this time of year. The wear time for these is hours and it didn’t budge or transfer. But you do need to apply a couple of layers to get full opacity.
I’ve really been loving this look and have recreated it multiple times, which you can also check out on my Instagram. I think the eyeshadow also pairs really nicely with a nude lip for a daytime look, shown below. Now, I must try a few more products they have, especially the eyeshadow palettes!
