FOTD | Lorac Pro

posted on: Wednesday, April 16, 2014

I'm here with another Face of The Day post. I was really excited to test out the Lorac Pro palette, and I liked how this look turned out, so I had to snap some photos. I decided to go for a day-time smokey eye and use the pinks and purples from the eyeshadow palette. Because it was a day-time look I opted out of wearing eyeliner. I've actually been going through a phase where I hardly ever wear eyeliner anymore, and only occasionally wear it when if I'm going out at night.



Specifically, for the eyeshadows I used the matte Light Pink all over the lid, the matte Mauve colour in the crease, and worked a little into the lower lash line with a pencil brush. I then used Deep Purple in the outer v. I think next time I do a look like this I will drag the Deep Purple colour over more of the outer lid, and maybe up higher in the outer crease. I tend to always end up doing smokey-eye looks where you can only see it when my eyes are closed. I need to work on that. I also used the shimmery Nude shade along the brow bone.

Lately I have been really loving the combination of my Bobbi Brown Corrector and the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Hightlighting Concealer together. The corrector covers up my dark circles perfectly, while the highlighting concealer brightens up my eye area. I  am still really loving my Healthy Mix Serum gel foundation from Bourjois as well.

I decided to wear the Revlon blush in Wine Not*  and I like how it worked with this look. I applied it fairly lightly so the colour didn't overpower my face and take away from the eyes. I forgot to photograph the lipstick that I was wearing, but it was Revlon Super Lustrous Shine lipstick in Pink Cognito.

So thats the look!

  1. first of all your eyes are stunning in that photo! second of all what shade are you wearing in the foundation? Is it not too yellow for you?

    1. I have shade #51. I haven't noticed it being too yellow. I feel like it blends into my skin so well that I can't even tell I'm wearing it!

  2. Is that a Nars primer? How do you like it?

  3. Your makeup looks fantastic! I wish I could emulate it! But using eye-shadow to create any kind of real look is beyond me.

  4. Your eyes looks gorgeous! that palette looks fantastic.

    I just want to let you know that I tagged you in my liebster award post :)

  5. Beautiful! I find I can't wear eyeshadow without some eyeliner. I will definitely try it because I all for not using a ton of makeup, but adding some color. Great Fotd ^_^
