Happy Friday my lovelies!! I can’t believe there’s just a few weeks of summer left…where has the time gone?! This past month has probably been the busiest month of the year, with our wedding approaching in just 3 short weeks and 3 back-to-back trips before then. I’m so glad it’s a long weekend so I can get in some relaxation time before we leave for NYFW again next week!! So tonight, I decided to have a night out with G to start off the holiday weekend and get in some quality time before all these trips begin. Plus, I needed an excuse to play with some of my new makeup ;) I decided to go for a rose gold smokey eye look using some of my new products I’ve been dying to try lately!!
If you guys have been following me a for while, I’m sure you know how much I love rose gold!! I find that rose gold compliments so many different makeup looks and flatters every skintone! L’Oréal made this super pretty shimmery rose gold liquid liner that I’m absolutely obsessed with! Usually for the summer months, I like to play with lighter eyeliners to keep it light and airy. One of my favorite things about using this liner is that it glides on so easily and allows you to draw a precise line without any fuss. This liner has the perfect metallic finish to it and I love that it brightens up my eyes, especially since I don’t get that much sleep so I need all the help I can get!!
After applying the liner, I apply two coats of the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer before mascara. I usually don’t use lash primers, but after using this one a few times I’ve really noticed a difference in how dramatic my lashes look after mascara! Sometimes after a really long day, I notice tiny black dots under my eyes from my mascara, but with this primer that rarely happens anymore. Although it’s an extra step in the morning, swiping on a few coats of this really helps thicken your lashes and make your mascara last all day and night long. Now onto mascara. I’ll admit, I am not one to change up my mascaras very often, so when I start using a new mascara I make sure it meets all my criteria after the first try. This water-proof mascara is all about that DRAMA! And for under $10, you really can’t go wrong with this stuff and it works just as well as a lot of the high end mascaras I’ve tried. The formula isn’t too runny or thick, so it glides onto your lashes just right and doesn’t clump or flake off. The best part is the brush is hour glass shaped, so it works to coat every single lash and keep that curl lasting all day long.
Now onto lips! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these new Colour Riche Ultra Mattes by L’Oreal. I’m usually not the biggest fan of matte lipsticks because no matter how creamy the formula is, there’s something I don’t like about how it feels on my lips. Since these new lipsticks are ultra-matte, they sit so comfortably on the lips and glide on like velvet! Another thing I love is the range of shades in this collection. There are 16 shades in the collection, all inspired by lip-toned nude shades…my go-to in life! When it comes to nude and mauve shades, I usually lean towards the soft mauve shades with more pinky undertones rather than too brown. For this look, I used one of my favorite shades ‘All Out Pout’ which is the perfect mauve, nude shade for everyday! I finished off this look with a little bit of a shimmer gloss to add some more volume and shine to the lip for a night out ;)
