For me, makeup has always been something more than just covering the imperfections. Whenever I choose the makeup look for the occasion, I like to think of the ways it could compliment my outfit and match the accessories. This process makes the whole preparation time more exciting and gives me a chance to express my creativity.
For this look, I was inspired by the texture of my dress. The dress is a beautiful emerald colour, but I didn’t want to accentuate my attention to the intensity and create more texture instead. I have come across the Glazed & Confused Eye Gloss from NYX Professional Makeup. Out of all the colours, I have chosen a more neutral one named “Get Naked” which is a perfect taupe colour. It ended up being an enjoyable product to work with, and there are several ways it could be used. You can do what I did and apply it straight on the lid to create texture, or you can layer it on top of the eyeshadow for a more intense outcome.
This product is not for everyday use, and might not suit someone concerned about smudging and creasing. It could be a great addition to the makeup collection of someone who likes to get creative or does makeup as a job. I could see this product being used for the studio photoshoots and editorials.
I am pretty happy with the outcome, and the whole look has ended up having the vibe I was going to achieve. Watch the video below to see it for yourself and let me know what you think. Enjoy! X
