Annabelle and her purple eye....

I had the chance, one day to be cited as the "author" of a sweet blog. The nice girl giving me a shout out said she liked to imagine my first name was Annabelle because I was using the brand so often in my FOTD that it defined me...So today, again, please don't call me Caroline, I am just Annabelle ;-)

Look at that and clean up the drool from your chins, ladies ! one swipe, no primer : the 3 colors on my fingers are rainforest, utraviolet and tutu. I didn't swatch Fantasy : the peacocky turquoise color because I didn't use it in my EOTD but My brushes are itching to try it ....

Next , full face with flash : products used for the face are:
NARS sheer glow in Deauville. Still on the fence with this one, the coverage and lasting power are perfection but it might be a little too yellow on me...
Maybelline Mineral blush in Soft Mauve
Annabelle Haute gold bronzer to contour
Mac prep and prime finishing powder to set everything

Very scary close up on my eye :
Primer : TFSI
e/s : Rainforest(Annabelle) in the inner corner , Ultraviolet (Annabelle) all over the lid, tutu (Annabelle) to blend, the beauty marked dupe from WnW to give depth in the outer V (Lust palette)
liner : Feline khol liner from MAC
Brows : Root Beer e/s from a NYX trio
Mascara : Marcelle volume precision in black

This pic is truer to the colors : there is a hint of fuschia in the ultraviolet that is just gorgeous...

Lips : Heather from NYX mixed with Gosh Darling (134)
Neck : H&M new, love, love....

Last one, just to tell you that this look was inspired by Laurenisokay on Youtube. It is quite far from what she did but she is cute and talented so I often take some of her color combos as a base for my own look !

Have a good day, lovelies !
