I’ve heard it’s a wee bit warm in England today.
Right. Get over it.
I’ve been back in NYC almost a week and it’s really, really bloody warm. Almost 100 degrees warm, OK? Do you have any idea what this does to a girl’s make up? Nothing good, let me tell you.
Start with a primer if you have one (never hurts, I love Urban Decay’s Primer Potion) then slick on a lid full of TopShop’s longlasting eye crayon in Equinox. It’s a beautiful pale gold that can be layered up for a more intense metallic finish or played down for a summery shimmer. Love. Now, the crayon lasts well on it’s own but to really kick its arse, add a light brushing of Armani’s Eyes to Kill Noka powder over the top. Somehow, this amazing product looks and feels like silk but gives the most intense metallic finish when layered. I mean, for reals the pay off here is intense.
For day, keep things light and just add a slick of your favourite waterproof mascara, then you’re good to go. The metallic elements pick up the light and make your eyes sparkle but not in an overdone way, and they don’t run or disappear halfway down your face. For night time, add a charcoal grey liner close to the lashline for definition or go a little crazier with a deep espresso brown, then add a couple more layers of the Armani powder for a really intense, sexy, smudgy smokey eye. And obviously, several thousand more coats of mascara.
I’m in love.
