Happy morning to you! I’m sitting down writing this blog post as I’m actually wearing this makeup look (sometimes I take pictures then write days or weeks afterwards) so my thoughts are fresh(ish) in my mind. For today’s makeup I’ve used Jesse’s Girl Sounds of the City eyeshadow palette, Jesse’s Girl Matte Finish Lip Color in Sultry, Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner in black. (P.S. Baby has still not shown up yet, but I’m ever hopeful!)
Jesse’s Girl Sounds of the City is a neutral 10 eyeshadow palette
I swatched the 5 eyeshadows I used – you can barely see the palest one on the bottom because it practically matched my skin tone. 😛
The top glittery black I used a bit on the inner corner of my eye, the smokey gray-purple on the lid, the middle shadow in my crease (shows more purple IRL), the shimmery shade at the arch of my brows, and the pale cream on the brow bone.
I’ve heard so much about the Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner from other bloggers that I just had to pick it up. So far, I’m absolutely loving it.
It goes on so smoothly, dries quickly but not too quickly. It’s actually black (unlike some I’ve used that end up being grey), and the tip makes a great point for wings! ❤ I’m in love over here!
Unfortunately, I’m less than thrilled with Jesse’s Girl Matte Finish Lip Color (shown in Sultry). This goes on nicely, but even after it has dried, transfers easily.
It dries matte, which has to be said because there are some lippies out there *cough Maybelline* that say matte when they don’t dry matte! Anyway, it seriously dries out my lips and almost makes them feel chalky. No bueno. But I love this color!
Overall, I’m really pleased with how this look came out! I always love a bold lip paired with a smokey eye. What about you?
