Saint Rose FOTD

Hi all,

Went for a softer smoky eye and a pinkish lip today. It's amazing how the colour of a lipstick can change depending what you wear underneath it. My skin is still acting up after Alima foundation disagreed with it but thankfully, it's not hugely visible in the pics. I braided my hair last night so my hair is wavy and loosely secured in a half ponytail. I love soft styles like this.






Products used:
-Usual primer, foundation, concealer, powders and contour product
-Clinique Plum Pop and
-MUA Undress Your Skin shimmer powder.
Eyes:
-UDPP
-Collection Work The Colour eyeshadow pencil in Gunmetal Glitz
-UD Gunmetal (lid)
-Matte mid grey from Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 palette (crease)
-Light grey from MUA Matte Ever After palette (to blend)
-Rimmel Matte White (brow bone)
-The Body Shop Eye Shimmer in Silver (inner corner)
-Kiko Glamorous eyeliner pencil in 414
-Essence waterproof eyeliner pen
-Mally Get The Last Lash mascara and
-Boots Natural Collection Water Guard mascara.
Lips:
-Maybelline clear lipliner
-Jordana Rock n Rose Easy Liner for Lips (to line and fill in) and
-Lipstick Queen Saint Rose.
