Smoky Eye Friday | Subtle Bordeaux Smoky Look

2 Replies


So I’ve had this set for months + am just now getting around to testing out looks with it. Classes have slowed down for the time being so I’m taking advantage! Each palette set can be individually housed in this cute gold case. Makes touch-ups super easy.


There are four palettes + three lip glosses in this set. Each palette is travel size + set with shades that compliment each other.


Serengeti Sand + Rocky Mountains are on the matte side while Buckingham Palace + Bordeaux have more sheen + shimmer. The blush, Ambitious, is also matte but super pigmented. New York Minute is one of the three super glossy lip shades but is buildable + can be paired with other lip shades for different tones + looks.


Serengeti Sand – base | Rocky Mountains – crease + outer + inner lid | Buckingham Palace – all over lid | Bordeaux – crease area + outer eye lid area

I used as light of a hand as possible since I wore this look while out + about taking care of mommy duties + running other errands.


The colors blended so well that I also dabbed a bit of Serengeti Sand at the very inner corner of my lids to lend more balance to the darker shades. Lined my upper lash line with a brightening black liner from e.l.f. + grazed just above my crease with Serengeti Sand.


Though I love the lip gloss shades + formula I always put a little moisturizing chapstick on first so the gloss stays + shines longer. I like to use the kind that have shea butter as a base since they seem to wear the best. Overall I’m extremely happy with this look + will be testing out looks with the other three palettes + remaining lip gloss shades through the weekend.
