FOTD using Sonia Kashuk Instructional Palette


Today on The Lovely Nerds I am bringing you a quick FOTD using the Sonia Kashuk Instructional Palette I reviewed in the previous post (link at bottom of the page). Forewarning -> TERRIBLE, gloomy and overcast lighting. You were warned. Lol. Want to see more? Keep reading -->

Ah, The first poorly lit picture :D Today's look is featuring the Sonia Kashuk matte neutrals palette I recently acquired. It's a lightish, smokyish eye that is easily wearable during the day. Now, I don't claim to be a master at makeup application so this is not a SPECTACULAR look, but I feel it is easy to do.

I didn't really have any inspiration for this look, except perhaps the horrible gloomy clouds outside. (Ooh, those eyebrows... they need a little help!)

A close-up of the eye look. I used the shade that matches my skin tone all over from lashline to brow bone. I placed the grey onto my lid using a packing motion to get it to go on evenly. I placed a cool, medium brown in the crease and blended it up. I used a light flesh tone for the brow highlight and then added a bit of Mac Lightscapade to the center, right under the arch of my brow. I used the same medium cool brown on the lower lashline and the white on the inner corner. The eyeliner is UD Perversion pencil liner (i have a love-hate relationship with this product. I love it, it hates me.) The mascara is Benefit They're Real and the brow filler is Elf's Studio Brow kit. 

(This is an awful picture of me, I'm sorry! lol) I took this picture to show off the cheeks. On the cheeks I have Mac's Ripe Peach, Lightscapade as a highlight and a bit of Too Faced's Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer under the blush. 

The other products I used today were Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse foundation (it has a bit of a white cast in flash photography, hence the super pasty forehead and patch on my neck) and on the lips I have Revlon Creamscicle lip butter with Mac's Faerie Glen lipstick over it. Not sure how I feel about nude lips on myself. No concealer, probably could have used some under them eyes!
