Dark Plum ft. Lorac Pro 2


Since picking up this flawless palette at the end of July, I have been playing around and finding out what crazy things this baby can do. It is so exciting because these colours are very blendable and pigmented and just full of life. Since the past few tutorials I have done have been on the tamer side of things, I thought I should shake it up a bit and turn this semi-neutral palette into something dramatic. Enjoy!

  
    
Since I knew this would be a darker look, I started with the eyes. To my excitement, there was no fallout, but it never hurts to be careful. I primed with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer before applying the Lorac shadows. In the crease, I layered Nectar and Cool Gray from the Lorac Pro 2 eye shadow palette. This made things blend out a little more seamlessly. All over the lid, I packed Plum pretty heavily. I then layered Jade and Chrome into the inner third of the eye and then blended things out a bit with Cool Gray. Lastly, I put a bit of Chrome under the eye to finish it off.

    
    
Next the face. I started with the MUFE Step 1 primer in Blue Radiance. I also put a bit of the Maybelline Corrector Stick in the green shade on some redness I have around my nose and chin. For foundation, I used the L’oreal True Match foundation in W2 and the Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer under my eyes in light. I set my under eyes with the Bare Minerals Concealer in Well Rested and totally forgot to set the rest of my face! Eventually, I did set it with the Rimmel Stay Matte translucent powder. For mascara, I used the Makeup Forever Smokey Stretch mascara. 

    
On my brows, I used my latest favourite product: the Rimmel Brow This Way gel which is a one step perfect brow product. I used this gorgeous Milani blush in Tea Rose which I have really been liking lately too!

  
I can foresee this lip colour being a favourite his fall/winter. I combined NYC Expert Last lipstick in Blue Rose with Annabelle Stay Sharp Waterproof lip liner in Berry. I am in love.

  
  
Here is the look in all its glory! I don’t normally like dark eye shadows on me but I really loved this. Let me know what you think! Do you want to see more looks with the Lorac 2 palette?

Til next time, ttfn x
