Make Up Look | Dark Eyes & Nude Lip | prettylittlewriter

A lot of the time I stick to a very similar make up look, natural tones with golden shimmers and a pink or red lip. However, recently I decided I wanted to try something a little different and more daring. 

So I chose to embrace my inner Avril Lavigne and create dark, sultry eyes.

To create this look I used my go-to concealer and foundation, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair and Cool Medium & Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory.

To create the dark smoky eyes, I used Urban Decay's Naked Palette and the shades Gunmetal & Creep. I started by applying Gunmetal all over my lids, then I shaded in the creases of my eyelids and my lower & upper lash lines with Creep. I finally blended a little bit of the shade Virgin to the inner corner of my eye and just under my brow to give my eyes a little bit of shine to them.

For the nude lip, I used Mac's Velvet Teddy. This is my go-to nude lipstick, I think it suits my skin tone well and I love the matte finish.

I was quite impressed with the finished results, I was a little worried that it would be too much next to my pale skin, however I really liked the look and would definitely try it again.

I hope you like this make up look, would you try it yourself? I would love to hear from you!
