Thank God it's Friday #1: Blue and gold smokey eye

Happy Friday beauties!!
In December I grabbed a few gorgeous shadows from Nabla Cosmetics among which an incredible shimmery blue called Eternity that is absolutely stunning. Admittedly it's not an everyday color to wear for work, but I find it an incredible pop and makes for a very intense smokey eye for a night out.

Products used:

Base and Cheeks:

  • Kiko Mat Primer
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 54 Beige
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 20
  • NYX Stay Mat But Not Flat Powder
  • Kiko Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer
  • Kiko Powder Blush in 107 Tomato


  • E.l.f. Cosmetics Eyelid primer (shocker right!)
  • Kiko Colour Shock Long Lasting Eyeshadow: I used this cream as a base to intensify the color of the powder shadows
  • Nabla Cosmetics Petra in the crease, Eternity all over the lid
  • Lorac Pro 2 Navy and Black in the outer V
  • Urban Decay Half Baked in the inner corner and lower lash line and dabbed on the center of the lid
  • Inglot Gel Liner n.77 (black) very close to the upper and lower lashes
  • Lancome Hypnose and L'Oréal Telescopic Waterproof mascaras

Brows and Lips:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Chocolate
  • L'Oréal Brow Artist Plumper Medium/Dark
  • MAC Dubbonet lipstick

With this look I hope to start a new TGIF series where I post some evening looks on Fridays to hand out inspiration if you need some for your weekend look! Would you be interested? WHat do you think of this look, would you wear it?
