Simply Sophisticated!!

I love a look like this once a while. Its simply beautiful and you can't be 'SIMPLE' so easily. This look has to be painstakingly accurate with no room for mistakes as there is a lot less to hide and a lot to show. The eyes are supposed to be very mesmerizing and that too only with three eyeshadows and what can do it better than the YSL Classy Eyeshadow palette. 

The false lashes just add a lot of sophistication to this look and thats just so alluring. This is supposedly one of my most precisely executed looks. So lets see how to do this look......................

YSL Classy Palette is used in this look. I used the following colors;
  • Champagne - champagne-beige duo chrome shimmer
  • Marble - medium brown shimmer
  • Concrete - deep brown shimmer with a minuscle of taupe
To begin with the base, I applied YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation in 050, Clinique All About Eyes concealer 05 - Medium Beige and Guerlain Les Violettes Loose Powder in 04 Ambre.

Conceal the under eyes with a good concealer to ward away darkness and tiredness and look fresh in a jiffy.

Prime the lids with LORAC Behind The Scenes eyeshadow primer.

Apply the 'Marble' shade on the entire lid upto the eye crease. Apply this by dampening a flat eyeshadow brush. 

Blend the sides of the eyeshadow into all the sides and just diffuse them. Blend the edges and take it up beyond the crease till the brow bone. 

Smoke out the marble shade on the lower lids with a pencil brush, preferably damp.

Apply the 'Concrete' color on the outer corners and in the crease.

Apply the 'Champagne' eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes and under the brow bone. Apply Uroparis False lashes no.54 exactly at the lash line (without lining the eyes).

Stick the false lashes exactly at the lash line.

Line the upper lash line with Maybelline Gel liner and a Real Techniques Fine liner Brush.

Curl the lashes and apply 4-5 coats of Lancome Hypnose Doll's Eyes mascara in Black. And voila!!!

To pair with such a simple and sophisticated look, I prefer keeping the accompaniments simple. Its just a Guerlain Sable bronzing powder to contour the face, Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush and Guerlain Rouge G in Guerlinade and Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lip Gloss in Abricot Gourmand. 

Hope you liked the look. Do let me know in the comments.
