Soft Simple Makeup look with Sobe Botanicals and NYX

This was a look I wore on Monday.  I'm still helping my friend with her kiddos so my makeup has been much softer than what I normally do.

 So annoying. My natural lashes are very long, but they just won't curl up! Arg...

Eyes (all applied in this order):
Coastal Scents Shadow worx eye primer (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger)
Sobe stick it! eye primer (applied all around the eyes patting then rubbing in gently with ring finger) 
NYX - Black (applied to outer crease by patting with a Coastal Scents crease brush)
Sobe - Love Triangle (applied to outer lid and crease with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping)
Sobe - Protagonist (applied to inner half of lid and crease with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping) 
NYX - Highlight (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping) 
NYX - Black (applied to upper lash line with MAC 266)  
Avon Super Shock Mascara - black (upper lashes)

Eyebrows: Sobe Fill Me In Brow Filler - a mixture of Brunette and Raven (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Some sort of lipgloss...I don't remember...

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation SPF 15 - Light Ivory (applied with a synthetic foundation brush)
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Powder SPF 50 - Translucent Light (applied all over face/neck with a large powder brush) 
  Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Powder SPF 50 - Bronzer (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line)


  1. I have similar lashes to you. Mine aren't as long as yours but they sure do like to misbehave!

  2. I love the pinks and purples and your amazing blending work, using the placement of colour that I am loving right now, keeping the lower lashline clean too. I have used Shu Uemura eyelash curlers for ever, they are fab, can recommend to help your lashes, unless you already curl them with the same! BTW do you wax your brows or get them threaded, they look so amazing and so clean!

    1. Eyelash curlers don't work very well for me. I have tried different kinds but nothing works so far. :-/
      Thanks! I'm glad you like the look. :-)
      No, I just pluck them myself. I've never let anyone else touch my eyebrows. I'd be too afraid!

    2. Brilliant brow job then, I never let anyone touch my brows either as I had a terrible eyebrow wax job once which burnt my skin, so never ever again....x
