I know the title of this post must have puzzled you, but it's actually how this look came up! Last night I did my make up (with my clean brushes of course) and I did a look using Mac Tone: Grey quad. Last colour I used on my 222 mac brush was The Right Smoke (Rich blue with white pearl). So I went out, had fun, bla bla bla!
Today, I had to meet a friend for a coffee and I didn't have a lot of time on my hands to do my make up. So, after my usual face routine (moisturiser, concealer, foundation, powder) which I did really fast, I applied soft ochre paint pot all over the lid and brow bone and then a matte beige e/s on the lid.
And then? Had to think fast and do something simple but nice: so I grabbed my 222 with what was left of yesterday's "right smoke"
and I swiped it over my crease. I then picked up a little of omega
and blended it on top of the right smoke.
So, after applying a beige eyeliner at the waterline, fluidline on the upper lash line, and mascara, the result was this:
It's not something special but it's a very easy look that you can do if you are in a hurry. Of course I am not suggesting that you use a dirty brush to do it nor that you shouldn't clean your brushes. You could achieve the same result with a clean brush. Just tap most of the blue eyeshadow off because it's an intense colour.
Unfortunately I didn't have the time to take more pics to show the rest of my face, but I kept it simple (a light dust of NYX espresso blush on the cheeks and a nude lipgloss).
Do you like improvising when you do your make up? Or do you always go "by the book"?
