FOTD: Magenta Eye Makeup Ft. Smashbox Art Love Color, Too Faced Born This Way

With all the Holiday parties coming up, it is time to step out of the comfort zone and spice up the makeup to look vibrant and festive. I have not been brave enough to ditch the dusty rose lipstick yet - next time, I promise! - but made myself reach for magenta eyeshadow, a colour I have not worn before. This look features my favourite lipstick of 2015.

Scroll down for a full-face makeup look featuring magenta eye makeup, using the Smashbox Art. Love. Color. palette and Too Faced Born This Way foundation.

The products I used were:

Face

Dr Brandt Pores No More
As good as Porefessional and Bourjois Flower Perfection in my book.
Buy it here,
Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher in 04 Medium
Not a very opaque concealer but does a good job because I apply foundation after. Does not crease or dry out the skin and I love the formula.
Buy it here.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Warm Beige
Needs a review of its own. Coming soon.
Buy it here.  
Sunset Blush from Smashbox Master Class III
I only applied the barest smidgen of this - I did not want to draw attention to my acne.

Eyes

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class III palette reviewed here 
I used Candy, Framboise and Naked on the eyes over my favourite Kat von D High Voltage Eye Primer.
Buy it here.

Sephora Contour Eye Pencil
Not a fan. This pencil is good for a smudgy look but not when you want a tightline.
Benefit Roller Lash mascara
Watch out for a review.
Buy it here,
Benefit Gimme Brow 
I use Medium/Deep and it gives my brows a soft but deeper look without taking over my face.

Lips

Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 501
Lip Maestro is a long-wearing, satin-matte lip lacquer, and is my favourite lipstick right now. The shade is everything my dusty rose sensibilities dream about. I picked up four tubes from Selfridges - should last me a while.
Buy here.
