Beauty Marked Sketch

On Saturday one of my work girlies was celebrating her birthday in Soho so I popped in for a few cocktails. As I had been on the go all day I decided to quickly amp up my makeup for a fun night out.
As I was in a bit of a rush I didn't have a chance to write down everything I used (bad beauty blogger!), but I was mainly playing with a few products from my collection to create a deep, sultry plum smokey eye and a nude nip.

  • NARS Sheer Glow foundation (looks great in photos) mixed with Dior Forever (lasts well).
  • Bobbi Brown creamy concealer.
  • ELF glow powder (it's not very shimmery, so works great as a setting powder when you want your skin to look radiant).
  •  YSL Afrique bronzer
  • NARS Angelika Blush
  • MAC Macriviolet fluidline (as base)
  • MAC Beauty Marked e/s (on lid)
  • MAC Sketch e/s (in crease and lower lashline)
  • Blackberry pigment sample (on centre of lid for a little shimmer)
  • MAC Shroom and Vanilla e/s (as highlight on brow bone)
  • L'Oreal Carbon Gloss liquid liner
  • Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara (£15 here)
  • Lashaholic LA03 Wispy Strip Lashes (£7.95 here)
  • MAC Creme d'nude
  • Clarins Instant Light lipgloss 02 Apricot Shimmer (£10.80 here)
I love the look of a red based purple as I think it makes all eye colours brighter and more vibrant!
What do you guys think of purple eye shadow? It can be a tricky one to work with, but it is one of my absolute favourite colours! What are your favourite eyeshadow colours? xxx


  1. I love it brings out the colour of your eyes so well :) Just gorgeous! I'm a nude girl at heart I never seem to like anything else on me hah!

  2. It makes you eyes pop!! really nice colour

  3. you look beautiful! the false lashes are really natural looking too- wore a new pair the other day and when i saw a photo cringed at how fake they looked x

  4. I love this look. Your skin looks for fresh and dewy. Love the eye choices as well. Compliments your eyes beautifully!!

  5. You look beautigul here, love the eye make-up!

  6. I hardly ever wear purple shadow but it looks great on you here; maybe it's time to experiment!

  7. I love the eyes! Such gorgeous colours.

  8. You look so pretty Penelope! I love the natural looking eye makeup - it looks like something I would typically wear too. The lip color is really pretty on you!
