Pastel Palette

Hey Sand Stars!

I hope you have all been well. During Ramadan, I try and keep work to a minimum, but sometimes shoots and the like pop up now and then. Earlier this week I had a simple photo shoot and was inspired by Amber Heard’s soft and subtle makeup (see pic below).

The makeup was achieved with the help of some of my favourites: MAC foundation; a Sephora colour palette; Max Factor kohl; a Chanel lip liner and Benefit mascara.

I layered frosty pinks and lilacs on my eyelids and only applied the kohl on the bottom of the eye to make my eyes look more natural. A sweep of blush on the cheeks and pale pink lipgloss (all from the Sephora palette) finished things off.

These pinkish shades are a perfect idea for summer vacations (you don’t want to look overdone as you travel). Remember that makeup is not a mask and is simply used to highlight your already-gorgeous features 🙂

Live, Love & Laugh LittlePianoDiva style!

This Sephora palette is a dream. Since I'm often travelling, it's awesome to have my eyeshadows, cheek and lip tints in one box! Photo courtesy www.polyvore.com

This Chanel liner feels like satin on my lips! Remember to shade in your lips with the pencil as, if your lipstick fades, the colour of the liner will remain. Photo courtesy www.makeupandbeauty.com
