I was browsing Pinterest about a week ago and saw this gorgeous look with super dark navy eyeshadow and knew I had to recreate it! Love the look of this matte Nars eyeshadow and while it is a very heavy eye look, with sculpted cheeks and neutral lips it’s SO wearable! From the photo I couldn’t tell if the model was wearing any shadow under her eyes, but when I wear a heavy dark color on my lids I love the look of not putting any shadow along my lower lashes, especially if you’re not going for the “going out” smokey eye look!
On another note if you follow me on Instagram you know that I got my first official Clarisonic last week and I literally don’t know how I survived without one for so long. I’ve only been using it for 4 nights and I can already notice a huge difference on not only the pores on my nose, but the overall smoothness and evenness (is that a word?!) of my skin! Can’t wait to see results after a month!
