Make-Up | Eye Rock
Eye Rock has been around for a while and I have often stopped in Boots and Topshop to take a little look, but never been intrigued enough to add to my basket.
On this occasion, I have to say that I wished I hadn't! When you open the packet it all looks nice and neat and easy enough to apply:
Oh how looks can be deceiving! This is an absolute pain to apply! The idea is that you take off the adhesive and stick onto clean skin. I followed the instructions and got a blotchy job so gave up and decided to stick the crystals where I pleased and BAM here is the look I came up with:
Nice clean skin, minimal eye makeup and a pop of red. Here is how I achieved this look:
- For a clean canvas, apply Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B20 and cover blemishes with your favourite concealer. I used Ganier's roll on
- Because we want a zero shine, powder your face. I used Chanel Mat Lumiere because it still gives a radient sheen and doesn't look unnatural or cakey on your skin
- To add some warmth to my skin I bronzed my face using Nars' Laguna and added a tiny bit of Tarte blush in the colour blushing bride and highlighted my face with Benefit's High Beam to finish off the 'clean skin' look
- For the eyes I kept it simple with L'oreal gel liner and lashings of Clinique High Impact Mascara
- Then, I applied the Eye Rock crystals (the most frustrating experience of my life!)
- Finally, I finished it all off with L'oreal Color Riche Boosting Serum Lipstick in the colour 502 'True Red' - my favourite red lipstick
And there you go! All in all, I wouldn't recommend these £7 'eye crystals' to anyone as they are far too much hassle, and to be quite honest, I would be hesitant to wear this look out in public. Having said that, I will still reuse them in a more subtle way. I'm thinking of dotting them along my lash line for a flash of sparkle every time you blink!
