Oh, I've done it again... I had so much fun with GlamST virtual looks that I’ve continued creating new ones and getting them real!
Today is the second round and the make-up look I’m going to show you features navy blue and lavender eyes with plum glossy lips.
Not so surpriseling, I virtually made use of few products, while at home I used loads, especially primers and eyeshadows.
I've done this look twice: the first time before my archaeology digs in the outdoors when I was freaking pale, the second time recently.
In my opinion I look way, way healthier with my tan and new freckles; I let you judge.

I started in with a well hydrated face: I applied the Avon Solutions Truly Radiant day cream all over my face and neck, the Anew Vitale gel eye cream and my Yamavì green tea natural lip balm and I waited 15 minutes before putting my make-up on.
I created a smooth base with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser and the Instant Fatigue Blur in Cool Rose, then I applied my eye make-up first because I foresaw loads of fall outs.
As eye primer, I used the essence I love stage, it isn’t my favourite kind of primer but it works if one doesn’t let it dry on the lids, then I applied, blended and softened my eyeshadows as quickly as I could:
in the inner corners I put with a sponge applicator the lighter grey from this old Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Smokey Eyes (replaced by Urban Skyline); at the center of my lids I mixed three different shades with my fingers (pink, violet and pale lilac from the Pupa Beauty Bijou compact) in order to get a nice lavender, the result was a metallic and changing tone; on the outer Vs I applied an intense navy blue and I darkened it more with the Sigma E25 blending brush and a dark grey eyeshadow.
All the shades have been faded together with my fingers for a soft chromatic transition, while on the lash lines I traced a subtle grey line.
I wiped out the residues under the eye area and I continue with the face base.
As liquid foundation, I applied the Avon Smooth Minerals in Natural Beige, gently borrowed from my sister’s stash, and the Anew age transforming eye concealer in Medium and I lightly set everything with a medium toned face compact powder.
I filled in my eyebrows with the Avon Perfect Eyebrow Kit in Soft Brown and the Zoeva 322 Brow Line, I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme mascara, at the end I traced a new dark grey line on the outer lower lash line.
I finished the face make-up with a bronzing powder (temples, jaw line and under the cheek-bones), by using the Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight brush, and a plum blush, I added some light points with the Avon Color Trend Pencil Play white eyeliner (cupid bow, cheek-bones and bridge of the nose) set it with a lighter face powder and applied a plum lip gloss.
The one I used is an old limited edition Avon Glazewear lip gloss, it’s a bit darkr than the actual Rich Raspberry.

When I've created this look for the first time I used both the Avon Ideal Flawless BB cream in Shell and the Smooth Minerals foundation, the last one where I wanted to sculpt my cheeks; I filled my brows with the darkest brown eyeshadow from the Mocha Latte Avon palette instead.
I also wore some earrings which are absolutely particular and are a Chen’s creation from her Alma Belle shop.
