Smokey Eye Makeup with LOLA

I was challenged by the lovely people at LOLA Makeup by Pearse to create The Dark Angel also known as smokey eye makeup using makeup products from the new collection of Autumn/Winter Hypnotic. I had an amazing time creating this look. It took me out of my comfort zone, as I usually go for softer eye makeup but I like this smokey eye look. Its is dramatically channelling a futuristic femme fatale, and I am so in love with the look.

To create this Dark Angel Makeup with LOLA Makeup by Pearse, I used Eyeshadows 012 and 019, Highlighter Powder 01, Ultrashine lipstick 034 and Nail Polish 012 Pebbles.

I found the products very easy to use as always. They looked great on my skin as well, which was amazing.

The whole idea of the look was to draw attention to the eyes by going for a metallic shade combines with an ombre lip to create a modern and edgy look.

Here are the swatches of the Highlighter Powder, Ultrashine Lipstick and Eyeshadows.

A little more about the products –

 

Highlighter Powder

This light-diffusing creamy powder highlighter instantly illuminates and gives skin a a sheer glow that brightens the skin and blends easily into the skin for a light and delicate finish. The sheer glow can finish off any look beautifully.

 

Eyeshadows

Both eyeshadows are rich and have intense colour coverage. They are perfect for a natural everyday look or to provide a base colour for building, blending, highlighting or contouring. They are dead easy to apply and look fab!

 

Ultrashine Lipstick

This Ultrashine Lipstick 034 is a high-performance lip gloss compressed into a lipstick format. It has a high gloss effect and a divine wet-shine finish. So it is very light and there is hardly any visible colour on the lips.

 

Nail Polish

This nail polish has been formulated with Expert Gel III technology which is especially engineered to ensure fluidity, as well as high gloss and resistant wear. It is super easy to apply and dries pretty quickly.

The whole idea behind this Dark Angel look is to draw attention to the eyes, and keep the focus on there.  So I started off with the eyes, once the primer, foundation, and concealer have been applied. I used an angled eye shadow brush to create a dark frame outline with the LOLA Eyeshadow 012. Then I blended in the Eyeshadow 019.

For the lips, I went almost nude with the Ultrashine Lipstick 034, and applied the Pebbles nail polish to my nails.

I have another makeup review post for the makeup lovers. This time, it is LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation and Matte Silky Finish Pressed Powder.

LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation

I like my foundation as light weight as possible. I am not a fan of the heavy foundation or “cakey” look, so the lighter the foundation, the better.

Here is the product description of this LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation –

 

Beautifully lightweight and comfortable to wear, this radiant-finish foundation feels like a second skin.

An innovative pearlescent powder visibly corrects skin imperfections by reflecting broad-spectrum light whilst keeping the skin looking natural and fresh.

It also boasts oil absorbing properties which help minimise shine. The final result is perfect skin that looks like it’s been airbrushed and is front cover ready!
