This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the first version of the look – incredibly neutral, all-matte eyeshadow – and here is the same look kicked up a notch for those who need a little more step in an everyday look. The difference? Simply darkened the crease with Brun eyeshadow!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

Do you like your lipgloss stick, semi-sticky, or not at all sticky? Does it matter to you?

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. This is the ultimate daytime look in terms of neutrality and simplicity. I’m a little disappointed that the full face shot didn’t turn out very true-to-life, because I actually loved how this came out!

Temptalia Asks You

What beauty rules do you adhere to? We all know they “exist,” but whether we follow them all or even any… Rules from no bold eyes with bold lips to blue shadow should never be used.

I’m spacing today (blame it on lack of sleep), but I know I follow some rules (e.g. always wash your face before you go to bed) to a tee, and then others I ignore completely (e.g. you should only wear X colored shadows if you have Y colored eyes!).

If you were using Shu Uemura’s Pristine Green eyeshadow?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Pristine Green! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.
