***Don’t kill me Eric, it’s funny
If you haven’t heard of EgraceB, chances are you’re living under a rock in the middle of nowhere… For those of you that know, she has been a very dear friend of mine for three years now. Among the many things that stand out about her are her love of all things gold and maroon which is what inspired this look. She wears a signature cat eye almost daily just to prove she’s a classy girl but watch out for her attitude cus it could kill.
This look is super simple to achieve while looking like you’ve spent hours on your makeup. The eyes are composed of three shades and eyeliner and can all be done using your finger. How easy is that?! The hardest part is the eyeliner, which to this day I still have trouble with. I’d definitely classify this as a night time look, but if you’re feeling bold wear it all day long.
I used both the Lorac Pro and Pro 2 Palette for this look ($42). From left to right the shades are: Garnet, Cool Grey, and Gold. I used these just because I had them, but any brand will work just fine. However, if you’re looking for a great palette to start off with, I’d definitely purchase one of these. You get 16 shades, 8 matte and 8 shimmer and they blend great together.
As you can see in the photo of the makeup above, I first put the grey shade in my crease and blended it out. Next, taking my finger and patting it in the gold, I placed that all over the lid. With shimmery shades I always find it best to use your finger because I find that leaves you with the best color payoff. Last, I took the garnet color and placed it on the outer third of my eye with my finger. Once all the colors were down, I took a medium size fluffy brush and blended it all out.
DO NOT pay attention to the eyebrows, I think I need to get them done soon…
As always, just put on your favorite mascara and do the rest of your face makeup! I contoured quite a bit just because it added drama to the look.
Sticking with the EgraceB theme, I added a dark berry lip color to tie everything together. The specific color is Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame ($22).
