Favorite look of the moment: quick creamy smoky eye! (FOTD)


And when I say creamy, it's because I do it with cream eyeshadows - not because of the color!
I love how easy and quick it is: you get some cream eyeshadow on your 217, you blend it on your outer corner and into your crease and then you add a shimmery light cream eyeshadow on the rest of the lid and voilà.
You can leave it there, but I like adding a bit of pencil liner at the roots of the lashes and to actually line the eyes and make them more defined. That adds like 30 sec of work to this already quick look.





And if it smudges a bit, well, it's even better - it's Summer and it's nice and sexy to be a bit messy isn't it?
And yes, I've worn this look all week, just changing the colors -even though that doesn't show much on pictures. I'm glad I'm getting to use my drawer of cream eyeshadows (yes, they have a special drawer, that's how much I like them!)

  2. This is such a pretty look! I'm a huge fan of cream products myself. They are quick to apply, look natural, and play well on my dry skin :) These are such lovely colours for summer.

  5. @ Rocaille: oh I have to use a primer underneath or it's a disaster on me too!
