Face of the Day | Lower Lash Line Experimentation

Hello! I’m back with another FOTD. I decided to have some fun with my lower lash line. You will see that when applying the shadow underneath my eye, instead of ending it at my inner corner, I extended it out straight and accentuated the inner corner highlight. I made it subtle and soft, but I still think it made my shadow a bit more interesting and created the look of a slightly different eye shape!

And in case you were wondering what products I used, I casually posed them on this magazine. Everything will also be listed at the bottom too!

Aside from the shadow, I went with my basics for face, brows, mascara and eyeshadow base. Once again, please ignore my terrible brows. I have decided to grow them out because, I mean why not. At this point I’m clearly not going for a well-groomed brow look and I have been wanting to try and get a better shape to them.

As for shadow, I wanted to play around with my Lorac MegaPro palette some more. I’m so happy I bought this! I used Camel as the blending color and mixed Sepia and Mulberry for my lid color. I loved the warm brown-ish red look that resulted.

For my lower lash line, I used Sepia and blended it out then added a bit of Mulberry as well. As I said, I blended shadow under my eyes as usual, but stopped at the inner 1/4 of the lash line. I then went in with my inner corner highlight (cream) and brought that out a bit more than usual. Then I went back to Sepia and Mulberry and extended that line down and out a bit more than usual for a little bit of a different shape!

Now for my favorite part, cheeks and lips. I highlighted and contoured with my current favorite from Charlotte Tilbury and went back to an oldie, but a goodie, Mac’s Dainty blush for a mid-toned pinky sheen.

For the lips I also decided to go with a lip combo that I can’t get enough of. Nars Anna and Chihuahua create the most flattering, shiny, natural mauve lip and I am clearly obsessed.
