Today's post is a simple smokey eye makeup look using some gorgeous bits from Make-Up Atelier Paris. For those who may not know, Make-Up Atelier Paris is a professional makeup brand. I was introduced to the brand at a recent event and I have been so impressed with their eyeshadow palette that I've been using it ever since I got it. I created the smokey eye look using all 5 shades from the eyeshadow palette, the eyeliner and mascara.
Create The Look
I used the colours in the order that they appear in the palette. It wasn't intentional, I've only just realised it. So you start off using the lightest shade in the inner corner of your eyes and work your way through to the outer corner of your eyes using the darkest shade. I then blended it to give it the smokey effect. I used the lightest shade again on my lower waterline. This eyeshaodow looks white in the palette, but once applied, it is a gold shade. I then used the eyeliner and followed the shape of my eyes. As you can see from the pictures, I have extremely curly lashes and they aren't the longest. However this mascara really lengthens them.
Eyeshadow Palette: Bruin Dore T15 (£25)*
The pigment of these eyeshadows are great. The colours are extremely rich and you don't need to use that much at all. As you can see from the pictures below, the eyshadows are a mixture of 3 textures: matte, sparkle and pearl.
Eyeliner Gel: Noir (£13)*
This is a waterproof gel eyeliner with a matte finish.
Mascara: Lengthening Super Black Warterproof Mascara (£12)*
Lipstick: Gardenia B016 (£14.50)*
This lipstick feels gorgeous. It contains 2% jojoba oil which explains why it is so moisturising. As you can see from the swatch below, it is rich and smooth. The lipstick is waterproof so you need to wipe your lips a number of times to get it off.
You can pick up all these gorgeous products online. So what do you think of the look?
