Look: Natural With A Twist

This look is quite natural at first sight, but when you look closer you can see the sneaky purple line peeking through the upper lashes and in the lower lashline. I wanted to make my eyes stand out but I also wanted to keep it looking neutral and fresh.

To achieve this effect I applied a shimmery nude all over the lid and a matte pinky beige in the outer corners, crease and the lower lashline. For the tightline I grabbed an eggplant coloured eye pencil and made sure to feather out the line with an angled brush afterwards. 

On my cheeks I'm wearing a fresh light pink blusher to go with the soft eyes and my favourite 'my lips but better' lipstick. It's been so hot out the last few days over here that I can feel myself wanting to wear even less coverage than usual, so I try to use as little foundation or concealer as I can.
