NYX Trio Sweet Lagoon/Aqua/Ocean FOTD11:17 AM
So a few weeks ago, someone had requested a look using the NYX trio TS23 Sweet Lagoon/Aqua/Ocean. Now, I don't have the exact palette, but I do have the individual shades. I can't guarantee the shades are a perfect match because the trios are sometimes less pigmented than the singles (all the trios I've tried have been super pigmented though) but it should be pretty close.
Here are the colors:
And the swatches on my hand. No base was used.
Super pretty, right?
After applying Urban Decay Primer Potion to both eyelids, I first took the lightest color, Sweet Lagoon, and used it as a wash over the eyelid. Aqua was then used to define the crease/outer-V to the middle of the lid. I then took Ocean and defined the outer-V, but only on the outer third of the lid and also along my lower lash line. I used single shadow Opal (blue/purple iridescent white) to highlight my brow bone and on the inner tear ducts, blending in with Ocean on the lower lashline.
I lined the upper lid using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and lined my lower waterline. Black or navy blue pencil liner would both look great on the waterline with this look. Finally, I curled my lashes and applied mascara to complete the look. For the face I stuck with simple, natural elements so it wouldn't look overdone with the strong eye. Coral blush and clear gloss is a nice balance.
Here is a close-up of the eye
The colors look really glowy in natural light.
This is in-between light. I still think it looks quite wearable and natural.
And a couple more just before I left. My eyes look weird in the first one but I think it shows the colors nicely. :P
Did I mention I bought this leather motorcycle jacket a few weeks ago? OMG. I think I am living in this thing. I swear it matches EVERYTHING. Definitely a good investment. Will show it in its full glory in the next post. ;)
Oh, and just a reminder, I added the "followers" section on the right so follow me! I was also just thinking, would it be helpful to label FOTD's by color? Let me know in the comments.
