Recently I was given the opportunity to participate in the Jet Set with Revlon challenge. I loved the travel concept of the challenge, so I had to try it out! I received beauty products from Revlon to create my look, plus a cute passport in the package included makeup tips for how to achieve different looks based on cities around the world like Paris, New York, London, Stockholm, and Shanghai. The package that I received was Paris themed! The standout features in the Paris look were a double winged cat eye, and bold wine coloured lips.
I could not for the life of me manage to get a good photo of the double wing I created, but you can kind of see if in the photo above. For the eyes I applied the eyeshadow colour petal all over the lid, then blended the colour Greige into the crease. I then applied the Revlon Skinny liquid liner along the lash line. I followed the instructions in the passport to extend the line straight past the corner of the eye, then created a second line extending it upwards from the outer corner. I ended up thickening the first line that I created a bit so there was more contrast between the two lines. I also went back over the liner with the ShadowLink colour Greige to soften the look. To finish off the eyes I applied Greige along the bottom lash line and added a couple coats of the Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara to my lashes.
I do not own a Revlon foundation or primer, so I used my NARS Sheer Glow foundation and Laura Mercier Radiance Primer to create a base. I wanted to try and stick to the Revlon theme as much as possible, so I pulled out my blush in Wine Not, and my highlighter in Rose Glow. I thought that the blush in Wine Not went perfectly with the Revlon Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion. To complete the whole look I painted my nails in the colour Blackjack (black with very fine blue shimmer) with an accent nail in the colour Sure Thing (white). I finished off my nails with the Diamond Top Coat. You can see my nails on my instagram here.
So that's the look!
