Revlon has challenged me to be a London Lady! They sent me a Passport to Revlon Colorstay along with a box filled with Colorstay goodies to recreate the London Lady look: a smokey eye with a natural lip. You get a chance to join me and recreate the same look by winning the same goodie box by liking my picture on Instagram here.
Let’s get down to business.
I used the Colorstay ShadowLink in Charcoal all over the lid and dragged it out to create a soft cat-eye shape sort of smokey eye. I used the darker ShadowLink in Onyx in the crease and on the outer edge of the smokey eye to add more definition. After I got the shape down I used a clean fluffy brush to blend out the harsh edges and get that smokey effect.
I went ahead and lined the eyes with the Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner in Blackout, framing the eyes and drawing another cat eye, dragging it under eye three quarters in. I used Charcoal to smoke the under eye line and soften it.
I completed the eye look with two coats of Bold Laquer Mascara in Blackest Black.
I used a Revlon Highlighting Palette in Peach Glow on my cheeks to add some color and shape my face and help pull ground the heavy eye makeup.
On the lips I used Revlon Moisture Stain in London Posh, a peachy coral with a frost finish.
My nails were a lovely shade of green thanks to Revlon’s Gel Envy in High Stakes; a must have polish for this fall.
Here is the final look:
I had so much fun doing this look that I had to recreate it a few days later. I used pretty much the same techniques as above but added the new Revlon Photoready in Eclectic and used the primer grey shadow which is absolutely sublime and added more oomph and dimension to the look, perfect for a night out, party or you know… a day when you just need to feel extra glam.
