– GLORY BOON Heal & Conceal concealer stick
Eyes: – JANE IREDALE Glamour eye & lip palette
– BENECOS Natural eyeshadow base
– ERE PEREZ Almond Oil mascara
– SANTE lash balm

Starting with the base, I went to apply Glory Boon concealer stick – reviewed (here) – on the parts that needed some coverage, and I finished off by distributing some RMS Beauty tinted un-powder up in shade 02 all over the face. For those curious about the tinted version of RMS’ cult product, it doesn’t provide a coverage, but it evens out and reduces the shine. It’s been my go-to product for Spring-Summer.
For the eyes, I went for blue and green tones. Starting off with Benecos eyeshadow base, – reviewed (here). It has a golden hue and can even be worn alone. However, I strictly used it as a base this time to apply mineral eyeshadow next.
From Jane Iredale’s glamour lip & eye palette, which is still my only makeup palette to this day, I picked Caribbean, a stunning turquoise and used it on the lower lash line, for a little “pop” effect. On the inner corners, I applied “Wink”, which is a shimmery pearly white to add more luminosity ot the eyes. All over the eyelids, I used “Platinum” a mixture of metallic grey and mauve, and I accentuated the color on the outer corner and the crease for more intensity. Followed by Beauty Without Cruelty’s dark grey eye pencil, close to the lashline.
I prefer dark brown, navy or grey over black eyeliners because they soften the look, especially when I wear more colorful eyeshadows.
On my lashes and brows, I applied Sante’s lash balm – one of my holy-grails. I had a tiny bit of mascara left so one sweep of Ere Perez Almond Oil mascara sufficed – reviewed (here).

Et voilà, that’s the “tamed 80’s look”, which is a look I’ve been enjoying lately, and a change from my usual purple metallic or bronzy makeup looks. As you can tell, it’s very easy to re-create, and wash off at the end of the day 🙂
A big thank you to Nath for tagging me again, she’s simply awesome and her blog is filled with insightful and informative posts.
