Requested: Taupe Smoky Eyes

This week I uploaded a fashion haul video and got a lot of requests to recreate the makeup look in a video. This is it! I used exactly the same products except my skin decided to explode (thanks, hormones) and I did not use a heavy duty concealer so I can let things breathe a little bit. 

Nonetheless, the focus of this look was on the eyes, and this is the lineup of products that I used:

Base - Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Eye Bright (this sucks... I'm trying to use it up but if you have oily eyelids... save your $$!)
All over the lid - Chanel Safari 
Outer corner, lower lash line - Laura Mercier Rich Sienna (this was limited edition in the palette from a few years ago, MAC Mulch is a similar shade)
Liner - Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeliner in Black
Mascara - Bourjois Volumizer


On the rest of the face:

Dior Nude Bronzer - Amber 02
Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara

PS: My top is H&M with a Helmut Lang bra underneath... easily the best investment I've made in a while, you can get one here.

  7. Can't go wrong with a subtle smokey eye! The look really suits you and I love the soft, pinky shades that you used on the lips and cheeks to complement the eyes. So pretty! xo

  12. When do you use the Pai Cleanser?-- Do you use it in the mornings, for removing makeup or to cleanse your face after removing makeup?! I'm just wondering because I'm considering ordering this cleanser online! Thanks! :) (I tried posting this on your youtube video about products you've used up, but couldn't because of "site maintenance").
