Blushed eyelids

P1250967

Babyboy was born 3 weeks ago… It’s a great joy to pamper this little bundle of love! But it’s also a full-time activity… That’s why I haven’t been posting for the last few days…

But to be completely honest, my lack of activity on the blog was especially caused by bad weather, which has unfortunately affected us deeply.

As a matter of fact, our happy house in Seine et Marne was entirely flooded, it is such a big grief since we had just finished renovating it… There was only material damage but this really hit us hard… Imagine a water hurricane devastating everything on its path… And we can’t do anything about it since we can’t fight it!

Needless to say, I got a pretty big baby blues…

But everything’s all right, we are healthy and it’s what matters.

Besides, this disaster has generated such a touching show of solidarity – we were lucky enough to be housed while we were recovering from the situation, but people also helped us refurbish the house to make it livable.

In spite of all this, I’m glad I can use pen and camera again!

So MakeMy Beauty, here we go again! I’m coming back to talk to you about not-so-useful things but oh so pleasant… Makeup!

A few weeks ago, we got the new Dior Milky Dots summer collection at the studio with the popping "Bain de mer" couture colors and effects eyeshadow palette featuring 5 shades: a nude brown, an azure blue, a sensual coral, a rosy ochre and an aqua green… Except that in real life, it’s not always easy to wear such colors… Especially when the weather is so bad…

So I got the idea to use this palette in another way in order to do what I’d call “blushed eyelids”, only using the coral, nude and ochre shades – these colors are great to give some pep to your iris!

However, I left out the blue shades that don’t compliment my green eye at all… These will suit azure, hazelnut or honeyed eyes much more.

So for all those who don’t know what to do with their coral eye shadows, here is a little easy tutorial

✔︎ Take some coral eye shadow and put it solidly onto the mobile eyelid with 217 MAC. brush.

✔︎ Put some of the same shadow in the crease of the eyelid; keep your eyes open to determine exactly where it is.

✔︎ Then, take some nude brown shadow and put it creating a halo to blend the coral shade around the eye.

✔︎ And finally, take some rosy ochre with your brush in order to create light spots under the brow, in the middle of the mobile lid and in the inner corner of the eye.

Then, apply lots of mascara on your upper and lower lashes.

Here, I’m using So Intense Deep Black mascara from Sisley.

✔︎ Put on some blush matching your eye shadow on the tops of your cheekbones.

Here, I’m using Sweetheart's Peach Too Faced – I already talked about it in the Spring 2016 Launch  post.

 ✔︎ And finally, if you don’t want to be Coral overlooked, choose a Nude shade for lips, here I’m using

Dream State de Kjaer Weis.

  Here you go! You’ve got eyelids with blush color! You like it?

Have you noticed I removed my eyelid extension? I’ll talk about it soon on the blog…

Take care and hold on, summer is coming…

Along with sun I hope…

Especially since coral looks absolutely stunning on tanned skin.

    Ah pas de bol pour les inondations ! Mais cela reste du matériel, seuls la famille, l’amour, l’amitié sont insubmersibles 😉

    Félicitations pour le joli babyboy. Comment s’appelle le poussin ?

    Ce corail est parfait. Et je suis super rassurée de votre ce que donne le retour au naturel concernant les extensions. Sur un post écrit par Nelly, je m’inquiétais de la chute de cils post-extensions. Il n’a pas l’air d’y en avoir du tout pour vous. C’est vraiment ce qui me faisait peur, outre le côté peu naturel quand c’est mal fait.

    Au plaisir de lire votre prochain post (qui je l’espère aura raison de mes dernières ”craintes” sur la question) !
