K.I.S.S of makeup!

Kiss may have many meanings but for me it also means 'Keep it simple and sophisticated.' As a part of the Valentine's look I present you classic eyes with mauves and browns. I have used my lovely BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral eyeshadow palette reviewed here.


  • Stila One step foundation to be used as primer, concealer, foundation and powder all in one. Sheer wash is the foundation while concentrated application is the concealer. They dry up to a soft pwoder finish.
  • Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Rosy Flush
  • MAC Powder blush in Gana
  • Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Rosy Flush used as lipstain
  • Shiseido G5 Chianti Rose used as lipgloss

  • Prep with Nars Pro prime smudgeproof eyeshadow base
  • Trace the upper lash line with Chambor Ultra glide liner in Purple Haze where as the lower lids with Bourjois Khol and Contour 16 hr eye pencil in Brun Design. Trace from a point in the inner corners to a point in the outer corners.
  • To create a perfect soft stencil, used a medium brown in the outer crease to contour followed by a rosy brown in the middle and inner crease from the 28 color palette. Blend into the brow bone.
  • Dust on satiny soft rosy mauve on the lids while higlighting the inner corners and on the brow bone.
  • Smoke out the lower lid with a darker brown to create a hazy effect.
  • Curl lashes with Shiseido Eye lash curler and finish off with Clarins Instant Definition Mascara.
  • Define and shape the brows with a darker brown from the palette and set with brow gel.
This is a simply DIY look that is rosy and classy enough for a candle light dinnner.
