*AD – This post is in conjunction with Boots UK but as always, my opinions are 100% my own
I don’t know about you, but during lockdown I practically went makeup-free to the point that I actually forgot how to apply makeup properly. With us starting to move back to a “normal” way of life, with events taking place such as weddings, celebrations and holidays, it’s time to make those eyes sparkle again. I have put together a step by step guide on how I created this eye makeup look with Boots UK.
I went for an autumnal yet festive look with warm tones to really make my eyes pop. I have brown/hazel eyes and I feel that green, orange, brown and warmer tones are quite flattering. So let’s get to it!
Step 1 – Eyebrows
My eyebrows are always the first step of my eye makeup routine and for this specific look, I am trying the Kylie Jenner KYBROW brow pencils in shade medium brown. I have very fair eyebrows so I always go that shade darker to make my brows stand out a little more. I love how delicate this pencil is, perfect if you’re travelling and it has an eyebrow brush on one side as well, which I think is a must.
Step 2 – Eyeshadow
The eyeshadow that I am using today is the NARS Copper palette. I really love using a palette as I always tend to use at least three of the shades. I applied the shade Bal Harbour all over the eyelid with the shade Broome just on the outskirts of the eye, followed by a mix of Cantina and Pampelonne on the middle of the lid to really make the eyes pop. You can’t go wrong with any of these shades, I really do love experimenting with different looks.
Step 3 – Eyeliner
I know that many people say not to place eyeliner on your lower lids as it can make the eyes look smaller but I personally love it and feel that it makes my eye colour really stand out. I also feel very 90’s with this look. I just used a standard eyeliner pencil and for over the lids, I used the Lancome Artliner in Black Satin liquid eyeliner.
Step 4 – Mascara
Time to apply Mascara. This is my first time using the NARS Climax Extreme mascara and I was really impressed. It’s very natural looking and added volume to my lashes. I would highly recommend this product. This was all the prep I needed before applying false lashes.
Step 5 – Eyelashes
Now, I will be the first to admit that I am not the best at applying false eyelashes but I thought I would give it a go. I must say that Eylure were the easiest eyelashes that I have ever applied and they literally went on within the first attempt. I opted for volume and these were the 101 eyelashes. I was pleasantly surprised to see that these lashes are also reusable and can be worn up to 5 times.
Time to see the final look……………..
Now, it’s time to head out and to show off this look. Do you have any celebrations or events coming up soon that you’d like to try out a new look for? Why don’t you give this one a try and remember to keep your eyes on the prize.
Your eye makeup is stunning and I love NARS copper eyeshadow palette, the shades are beautiful! Also – can you please teach me how you do your eyeshadow so perfectly?! x
