Video Review: Rock & Republic (Blushes) First Impressions & Swatches
I reviewed CALL ME on Monday, but here’s a video I shot when I first opened up the four blushes I purchased from HauteLook, close-ups, me talking far too much per usual, and swatches. I will do written reviews for the rest as well — not to fear!
Here’s a quick look I did using some of the new shades from Bobbi Brown’s Black Velvet Collection! I wish the photos turned out better, because I actually liked how this look worked out in the end! It was this peek of smoky eyes that wasn’t overwhelming but not quite subtle either!
I’m so mad — my favorite foundation, Guerlain Parure Gold, is now too dark for me! Here’s hoping that #02 matches… love that foundation so much!
You will need the following…
Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (neutral eyeshadow base), Bobbi Brown Black Berry Eyeshadow (blackened burgundy), Bobbi Brown Black Velvet Eyeshadow (glittery blackened purple), Burberry Trench Eyeshadow (highlighter), Bobbi Brown Black Plum Eye Kohl (dark plum), Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara (black)
For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Black Berry eyeshadow on the lower third of the lid patted horizontally above the upper lash line. Lightly blend Black Velvet eyeshadow across the lid and slightly above the crease with the 239. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Black Plum on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.
For cheeks, apply Tease blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Black Chocolate lipgloss for a complementing lip.
