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").

  14. Taking measures to repair the FICO rating can help you get the credit at good rates. The credit report ought to be checked for exactness. On the off chance that it contains certain obligations that don't have a place with you, get them changed quickly by a FICO score office. check cashing
