the perfect gift #1: the look

When I first opened the jars I was a little unsure about Creme de la Creme as an eyeshadow. It just looks a little muddy in the jar, I was worried it would make my eyelid just look dirty. Boy was I wrong. I was in love with these colors the second I put them on. I wore them for a month straight, and they are still one of my favorite go to combos especially when I am going out at night because it is so easy to take it from everyday to smokey. I did this look based on what the look that came with the kit said to with a couple differences. On the day I wore this look it was daytime so the pretty amazing in Rouge was a little too much for daytime so I used Samantha buxom which is my go to daytime gloss. Here is what I did:

the perfect gift #1: the look

When I first opened the jars I was a little unsure about Creme de la Creme as an eyeshadow. It just looks a little muddy in the jar, I was worried it would make my eyelid just look dirty. Boy was I wrong. I was in love with these colors the second I put them on. I wore them for a month straight, and they are still one of my favorite go to combos especially when I am going out at night because it is so easy to take it from everyday to smokey. I did this look based on what the look that came with the kit said to with a couple differences. On the day I wore this look it was daytime so the pretty amazing in Rouge was a little too much for daytime so I used Samantha buxom which is my go to daytime gloss. Here is what I did:

  • take the larger end of the smokey eye brush and buff creme de la creme from lash line to brow and then add more to just the lid and buff it out really well
  • then sweep magnifique into the outer crease and outer "v" area with the soft sweep eye brush
  • next take a clean crease defining brush to blend out all the edges
  • take the small end of the smokey eye brush and line your under eye with magnifique half of the way (or all the way under if you like) 
  • line the upper lash line with the big and bright eyeliner in black coffee and the lower waterline as far as you took the eyeshadow
  • apply mascara to complete the eyes
  • apply blush in Avant-Garden to the checks and the hydrating tinted mineral veil all over
