Muted Sparkle

Since the beginning of this year, I have rarely touched my vibrant coloured eyeshadows while doing my eye makeup. It's quite a shame really and the looks that I do are nothing to blog about as I'm almost bare-faced with just a touch of concealer, mascara, blush, and tinted chapstick on most days.

This look is from a while ago and it's all about the neutrals, but I did put a little more effort into this look by adding some shimmery eyeshadow on my lids and toning it down with some matte shades.

Eyeshadows Used:
  • Cloves (Too Faced Smokey Eye palette) - all over the lid
  • Up in Smoke (Too Faced Smokey Eye palette): outer third of the lid + blended slightly above the crease + outer half of the lower lashline 
  • MAC eyeshadow in Mylar: tearduct + inner corner of the lid + inner half of the lower lashline + slightly brushed under the brow

These nails were around Valentine's Day, so I had chosen pink & added the heart on the accent nail.

Nailpolishes Used:
  • Mary Kay in Bold Fuchsia
  • Pure Ice in Don't You Wish (2-3 coats to get an even coating of the shimmer particles)
  • Hard Candy in Matte-ly in Love
  • Sally Hansen (Hard as Nails - Xtreme Wear) in White On - for the heart

I love how the nails turned out with a matte top coat over the shimmer particles. The muted sparkle nails are def something that I can see myself sporting on a regular basis.
